Same pinch, the wed­ding sea­son trend

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - FRONT PAGE - Ak­shay Kaushal

When it’s a Dil­li­wali shaadi, there can never be enough tashan! Colour-co­or­di­nated brides­maids and grooms­men are rou­tine. De­sign­ers are now in­un­dated with re­quests to cre­ate colour and de­sign co­or­di­nated out­fits for the en­tire fam­ily, from three-yearolds to 70-year-olds.

Pho­tog­ra­pher and cin­e­matog­ra­pher Harpreet Bachcher, from The Wed­ding Story, says, “In the past few months, I’ve cov­ered wed­dings that have the whole fam­ily in match­ing out­fits. Re­cently, a Delhi baraat had ev­ery­one from kids to un­cles and aunts wear­ing ivory out­fits. The idea was to make a larger-than-life Bol­ly­wood-style en­try.”

For a re­cent Delhi wed­ding, de­signer duo Shivan and Nar­resh cre­ated lehen­gas and band­hgalas from the same print. “The global love for colour co­or­di­na­tion has not spared the wed­ding in­dus­try in In­dia. Mod­ern In­dian cou­ples look for­ward to twin­ning not just in terms of their at­tires, but even with fam­ily and friends on their wed­ding day,” says de­signer Nar­resh Kukreja.

“Clients re­quest that on the day of their son’s or daugh­ter’s wed­ding, they want to look like one big fam­ily. But we also make sure the fam­ily doesn’t look like a shaadi band,” says de­signer Shya­mal Shod­han.
