Meet Urvashi Salaria, Ex-Senior Cabin Crew, currently a lifestyle blogger and most vitally a newly-wed.
Hi, how did you both meet?
Hi, I got hitched on November 17’ 2013 to the love of my life. It was a love marriage and we were in the same college but pursuing different degrees. We met, fell in love and after 6 years got married. Let’s just keep this effortless otherwise I can blabberabout itrelentlessly. I was someone who was really enthusiastic for my wedding and wanted to explore each and every aspect related to it before finalizing anything be it makeup or outfit or venue so as to stifle any failure.
Tell us about your wedding ceremonies?
My wedding ceremony officially started from the Roka Ceremony which was held in January. My Roka date was finalized within 2 days and I had very less time to book the MUA, buy the outfit and jewelry. Little did I know was that I wanted something very pretty and girly. Initially I was looking for Anarkali suit but believe you me, I didn’t even find one single dazzling piece. Just when I was about to give up and buy any random suit considering like ‘okay!It is just Roka’ a beautiful royal blue gown caught my glimpse and I was in loveee with that gown after trying it on. As they say “It fits like a glove’’

Mata Ki Chowki (Religious Ceremony)
My wedding was like the very first wedding function in my family so it had to start with a religious function so as to give it a good start with blessings. I wanted to wear a floor length Anarkali and the picture which I had in my mind, I couldn’t find a like for like in the market so I had to get it stitched from a boutique.
Outfit: Neon color floor length Anarkali (designed by me)
From: Geegus Outfits in Rohini
Price: Around Rs.22000
I wanted to wear a sophisticated dress/gown but entirely made from sequence. When I was never in a need to buy this kind of dress, I saw many of such kind hanging in different outlets but when I decided to wear such outfit on my bachelorette party, they all got vanished or probably some rich girl bought ‘em all :p. So I had no option but to again get it stitched and I went to my trusted boutique and was pretty happy with the outcome.
Outfit: Black colored long body-fit gown
I had already worn a pretty girly lookingGownon my Roka so I wanted a lehenga with many colors in it and when I saw this lehenga during my outfit hunting days, it was love at first sight.
Outfit: 3 colored lehenga

This outfit was a result of my imagination. I didn’t want to spend too much on this outfit as my mehendi function was at home.
Outfit: long skirt, Phulkaridupatta and long blouse

I wanted to wear something very simple in yellow color without spending too much in it as we are not supposed to wear haldi’s outfit ever again.
Outfit: Yellow cotton suit

Here comes the best part, tell us about your wedding lehenga?
I wanted to wear very bridal and heavy lehenga with royal and classy look. I definitely wanted something but with a hint of other colors to go with it.
Outfit: Red lehenga with Blue blouse and 2 dupattas- Red and Pink
