Bridal Diary - Nikkah Outfit

Hello ladies! First off, thank you for the over-whelming love and wishes that you guys sent my way on my Nikkah! My snapchat (username - nayabnajam) literally crashed because there were so many messages from all of you and that has never happened before haha! I'm so glad I decided to share my big day with you guys because I was till the very last minute umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether to just do a blog post or let everyone know on Snapchat as its happening. I'm so glad I went with the latter option - the love was truly over whelming.

Now coming on to the Nikkah itself - I'm doing a separate Nikkah post about the day itself, how I managed everything so this post is mainly for the outfit pictures that everyone has been asking me about! I looked through all of the photographers images and the ones guests took and no one seems to have a full length one :(



My Outfit 

My dress was basically a lehenga cholla thingi with a deeper neck at the back that was tied with some lovely gold tassels and a be-dazzled net duppata! The lehenga cholli combination is one that I would have never, ever chosen for my self since I always feel like it would make me look heavier but it was really slimming! I looked super slim and that's always a good thing, for me atleast haha.

The Nikkah dress itself was a gift from my in-laws so I didn't have to worry about anything. I just went to their place 2-3 days before the Nikkah, tried on the dress and fell in love!

Here are some images from when I was trying on the dress :)



My Jewelry 

For the jewelry, the set i wore is super duper special. Once again, my in-laws gave this to me to wear so I literally had nothing to worry about when it came to clothes and jewels haha. This particular set was given to my mother-in-law by her mother-in-law and now she's passing it down to me - how cool is that! I'm a bit of a history buff so I love that there's a backstory to what I was wearing.

I wasn't sure how the choker would look on me since I have a bit of a double-chin problem, but I'm happy to report, that it look so good! Everyone said that it gave off a very royal vibe - which I loved! The coolest part about this set is that it's double sided - the front (which I wore) has multi colored stones and beads and the back is pure white- can use this on so many occasions!


My Henna 

Okay, so I've had my share of misfortunes when it comes to henna because no matter what type I use, it stings that crap out of me. Knowing that, I really did not want to spend thousands on henna application which I would wipe off immediately. Also, my Nikkah was decided in less than a week so everyone was charging like crazy for last minute bookings. My savior in all this was my cousins daughter, who is only 14 and applied henna not only for me, but my sister and my childhood bestie as well. I loved, loved, loved it and so did you guys (judging from the screenshots of the henna application on my Snapchat) The design I chose was super simple with prime focus on the fingers only.

I did not get henna on the palms of my hand, only ooper se because my hands started stinging really bad and I had to wash it off within 20 minutes. Only one hand was done, and for the other hand only the fingers were done but I couldn't bear the sting anymore so decided to just let that be lol.

I wanted to introduce the groom as well in this post, but it's gotten super long already so you guys will just have to wait a day more for that one. I will also be answering all questions you guys sent via Snapchat/Facebook/Instagram in that post.
