Look at the scared expression on the girl’s face and look at the freaked out expression on guy’s face. This is how it used to be and for many couples, even now it still is !
With arranged marriage, it was not uncommon to get married to somebody within days of your parents “finding” them. Noticed that I didn’t say meeting, there was no meeting per se.
Thanks to TV, things are changing. Couples know a bit more about what to expect and they also have more opportunity to decide what is right for them and at least have some say in it.
This is a very delightful picture and I absolutely love it.

Sunny had mentioned in one of his posts that bridal sarees are different and should be judged differently. Bridal sarees have to be eye-catching so that the bride stands out from rest of the crowd. It has to be colourful and with intricate design. At the same time, it cannot be bold or non-traditional. So it’s tricky.
In this case, I am intrigued more by the blouse than the saree. It is an unusual design but still appropriate for the occasion.

A jamevar cream saree with scallop embroidered rust tissue borders with cut worked in gold zardosi, red resham and sequins worn with a short ornate tissue choli.
From the sheetal group.
The scallop embroidery is not something that I particularly enjoy handling. Especially when the it is “even”. The design is all about crafting and molding the even-ness in to pleasing look. I am sure, you can tell here that the scalopping at the shoulder doesn’t add grace and completeness to the woman in the picture.
But as I said, Bridal design is different. Sometimes you like it not because it is the best, not because it makes you look the best, but because it is so ornate that it makes the “day” look good.
