Weddings are beautiful any time of the year but there is something about a summer wedding with the amazing weather and a multitude of options for flowers and colors that makes it a bit more fun. Summer is also the perfect season to take your wedding outdoors and we absolutely loved the beach wedding of model and television host, Archana Vijaya, which took place in Thailand earlier this year.
Dressing for a summer wedding, especially in traditional Indian attire can be tricky, since most pieces tend to be heavily embellished and designers love to add trimmings like velvet and brocade, regardless of the season. Archana did an amazing job of finding pieces that showcased her personality and gave a nod to the beach vibe while also maintaining tradition. For her mehendi ceremony, Archana wore a colorful beaded lehenga by Pia Pauro.
For her Moulin Rouge themed sangeet, the bride-to-be wore a one shouldered gown by designers Gauri & Nainika.
For the wedding ceremony, Archana chose a lightweight, icy blue lehenga from Tarun Tahiliani, perfect for her sundown beach nuptials. She complemented the look with just the right amount of jewelry. Everything about this look was perfection!
