22 Ideas To Steal From Mansha’s Pin-Worthy Delhi Wedding!


Mansha & Gautam had a gorgeous winter wedding in Delhi last year, and if there’s ever an award for the most Pinterest-worthy wedding, this is the one that would win! The bride took three months off work to plan everything to perfection. While the decor looked fabulous and we loved how Mansha added cute little personalisations to everything, it’s her bridal style that converted us into fans forever. The 24-year-old chose Sabyasachi, Anita Dongre & Ritu Kumar designer bridal wear, accessorised with limited jewellery pieces and finished it up with flawless natural makeup.

We won’t keep you waiting then, go on and see 20+ unique wedding ideas you can steal from this Pin-teresting wedding!

#1 The Sea Foam Sabyasachi Wedding Lehenga!

We have Sabyasachi to thank for this fresh lehenga option and for reminding us once again – every colour is a bridal colour in 2018.

Personalised hangers have been around for so long, but only a handful of brides choose to get one made. We say – go for it! The special feeling you’ll get every time you use it will make it worth it. After all, you can’t see your wedding lehenga every day, but you can surely see (and use!) the hanger!

#2 Her Bridal Hairstyle

Mansha kept her wedding day hairdo simple and fresh by adding a simple wreath of baby’s breath to her bun. Thanks to Pinterest, baby’s breath is back in fashion in Indian weddings and are a personal favourite for giving a fresh and minimal touch to bridal hairstyles. The only catch is that they may start to dull down after 4-5 hours so opt for these for a short-duration function.

#3 Wedding Jewellery According to Her Comfort

One thing that’s constant across all of Mansha’s looks is her decision to stay away from heavy bridal jewellery. She told us, “I’m an outfit person through and through and not very fond of jewellery. So I’d told my parents that despite how much jewellery a bride ought to wear, I didn’t want to look like anything but myself on my functions and after insisting a few times, they gave in to my pleas. I spent about 7-8 months finding my outfits and not more than a month looking for my jewellery, it was all either from Tanishq, Bholasons Jewellers or Carat Lane.” We loved how she didn’t need a nath to feel “complete” as a bride, and her pretty bridal necklace!

#4 Peach choodas & varmala coordinated with the couple’s wedding look

Wedding Jaimala- Indian Weddings

We love how peach choodas add a sense of youth and freshness to traditional summer and spring weddings! As for the varmala, couples often end up leaving it to the florists/ decorators’ mercy. But Mansha paid special attention to the flowers and colours of her varmala. If you’re a bride-to-be, discuss your wedding-day outfit colours with your decorator and ask them to share accurate pictures of design options.

#5 How The Groom Matched The Bride’s Outfit

#6 A Mix & Match of Traditions and a Unique Bridal Entry

Bridal Entry- Sabyasachi Bridal Wedding Lehenga

Mansha explains, “I grew up across three continents where I only saw Christian weddings and always wanted mine to be one too. I knew that would be tough to organize but my parents let me run with it. I took Hindu, Sikh and Christian traditions and made them my own.” Despite being a Punjabi (Sikh) bride, she chose to ditch kaleereys, opting to hold a bouquet of flowers instead. She also ditched the phoolon ki chaadar. Her father walked her down the aisle (like they do at white weddings!) while Budapest by George Ezra played as her bridal entry song!

#7 Awesome Anand Karaj Entryway Idea & Decor!

Not everyone is well-versed with the etiquettes for an Anand Karaj ceremony, so informing them via a pretty entry sign is helpful. Don’t miss the personalised hand sanitizer bottles for the guests to clean their hands with!

#8 THE DECOR! <3

The Anand Karaj entry sign was just one of the many that Mansha had displayed at her wedding. The decor was the right mash-up of botanical and rustic, with peaches, pinks and whites added to lend elegance to the ambience.

#12 Make a good wedding hashtag & then spread the word!

Step one: create an insanely good wedding hashtag. GAutam & MAnsha became #GaMaSutra – an obvious play on words 🙂 And they didn’t miss a chance to remind the guests of their wedding hashtag!

#13 Incorporate The Wedding Hashtag Innovatively

Wedding Decor

We give them full points for involving the hashtag in different aspects of their wedding. On Cocktail/Sangeet night, the couple divided their guests and bar into two teams – Ga and Ma – and organized a successful drinking competition between the gangs. That’s a steal-worthy idea right there!

#14 The Bride’s Ivory & Gold Sangeet Look

Anita Dongre is Mansha’s favourite designer, so her Sangeet outfit had to be an AD piece! We love how she accessorised with simple gold bangles and a statement jhoomar. Brides, take note – you don’t NEED to wear something on the neck for your own functions. There are no “rules” – you can make your own!

#19 Personalise, personalise, personalise!

Personalized Wedding Decor.

Did you notice that the mehendi had the bride & groom’s nicknames included in it? They call each other Goose & Maverick (don’t ask us why!) – and they personalised their Mr & Mrs chairs at the wedding with these names too!

#20 Bride’s Mehendi Look (Outfit, Hairstyle & Jewellery!)

A small maang tika and pretty loose curls is sometimes all you need to look fabulous on your Mehendi function.

#21 Everything About The Bridal Shower

Mansha didn’t want a traditional Mehendi for when she’d get her bridal mehndi applied. So her friends threw her an afternoon tea party instead, that served as a bridal shower as well. The bride wore a self-designed lavender crop top and plain white maxi-skirt.Lavender Crop Top with White Maxi Skirt-Bridal Shower Outfit
