Designer Anita Dongre on What She Wore at Her Wedding, Bridal Fashion Tips and Trousseau Must-Haves

From an accessory that makes or breaks a bridal look to her fondest memory of weddings, designer Anita Dongre spills the beans.

What did you wear at your wedding?

I wore a PINK SARI that my team of karigars had designed and embroidered.

A silhouette that is becoming popular with new brides.

The CLASSIC LEHENGA CHOLI continues to be the most popular. It’s timeless.

A fashion tip for the busy bride.

Choose a LEHENGA WITH POCKETS. Our brides have always sent me messages full of love and appreciation for this one tiny detail that has made their wedding easier.

Your favourite look from your new collection?

I love the PICHWAI LEHENGAS— they are beautifully hand-painted.

One accessory that makes or breaks a bridal look.

The NECKPIECE. Be careful about picking a piece that suits your body frame and complements your face.

Haathphool or maangtika?

Blue or green?

They’re both beautiful colours, but I’ll have to say BLUE. It works well on most skin tones.

Biggest source of inspiration?


Five trousseau must-haves.

A hand-embroidered, ARTISANAL KURTA, chandbali earrings, jhumkas, a GOLD BATUA BAG, and a handwoven sari.
