What is “P & B Real Brides”?  Real Brides is a feature where we get to know one recent bride or bride to be and pick her brains about all things we love to talk about- outfits, lehengas, makeup artists, love stories.  Admit it, you are a sucker for weddings, and no matter whose getting married you WANT to be involved-!!!! Its also a platform for brides to ask the general audience advice on anything they need help on- from finding a good makeup artist in their area to finding the perfect boutique  for stitching.

Meet Varuna

Profession: Software Engineer ☹☹☹ Dreamt of becoming a fashion designer , a pilot , a businesswoman and what not… :P :P (Dont we all Varuna, Dont we all)

Wedding Day: December 2012 !! I will be sharing my roka cum engagement pics. (Please share your wedding/sagan pics too!)
Her Love Story:  ”A love marriage, simple yet not so simple love story. Its not just a predictable love story of two colleagues becoming friends first and then lovers.It all started with becoming enemies at workplace,then kind of forced friends because of the common gang of friends.A fb request which lead to daliy conversations till 3 AM , A special proposal,CCD visits(whole ccd ,south ex staff knows us and they used to give special treatment to us,being their daily visitors,lolz..),few lunch dates ,then after 6 months a big “YES” from my side and then all the family drama started. It feels so strange sometimes that i m head over heels in love with the guy whom i hated the most,once upon a time (due to silly and baseless reasons,which i realized later).I was not ready for any relationship initially,but destiny brought us together and i fell in love with him eventually.Families are happy and Yes,i am so happy that i accepted the proposal and loving being in this relationship.Looking forward to happily spending the rest of my life with him . :-)

The Roka / Ring Ceremony

Roka Outfit – Pink / purple lehgna with gota-patti work .This outfit was a love at first sight due to the b’ful colors ,also i was tired after visiting so many places and dint like anything much.I had very less time in my hand and was totally disappointed to see the collection at different shops.I do not like heavy ,blingy work. I wanted roka outfit to be light-weight ,multicolored and with no bling.This had very simple work and was rich on color,so opted for this one.I spotted the ombre skirt under the piles of lehngas because of b’ful pink color and gota work , then i got busy with the sales person browsing and trying on other lehngas, but my mind was still stuck to that b;ful color peeping out of the pile.Finally, i asked him to show this one and then i really liked this simple yet b’ful lehnga. (I adore it Varuna, the colors are so pretty!)
Price – 30-31K

Where I Bought it : Frontier Raas

Footwear – CatWalk – Not visible here

Make-up and hair – Shalini Singh (Style Studio) . The makeup was okay, but i felt like she used a yellowish base on my face which made me look dull and sallow. I also felt like i didnt have that much *glow* as a bride should have (Editors Note: You look really pretty though Varuna, and usually Shalini does really great Brides! )

Price of Shalini’Makeup – 18K

Most fun moment – The dance part , Boy is from a punjabi family and the whole family rocked the dance floor
Songs that got everyone grooving – Ek kunwara fir gaya mara and all the dance numbers …


Photography – Tarun Chawla (http://www.facebook.com/tarunphotography?ref=ts) .I had worked with him before and very comfortable with him.I hired him for his unique style and creativity.He is also on board for the wedding Yay!
