Taylor Swift: The Ultimate Bridesmaid!

Friendships made during high school often define who we become later. However, even though we may meet our besties and soul mates back then, as high school comes to an end and life continues to roll forward, sometimes these friendships fall apart.

However, Taylor and Abigail’s friendship is one that not only withstood time, but also the rollercoaster of worldwide fame. Taylor and Abigail first met each other as freshmen in high school. Two curly-haired blondes, they bonded and quickly became good friends. Even after receiving public attention and fame, Taylor didn’t forget her initial companion; her song Fifteen was dedicated to Abigail, who also attended the 2015 Grammys as Taylor’s date.

The relationship goes both ways; this September, Taylor attended her friend’s wedding as her bridesmaid.

The big celebration in Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, was not only attended by Taylor but also her mother. Taylor dressed perfectly to the part as she helped her best friend walk into the church, wearing a simple burgundy halter gown. The gorgeous dress was paired with a lipstick of a similar hue and loose curls. Her look whispered class without drawing any attention away from the bride, who wore a beautiful light-pink dress with lace embroidery and pinned up curls.

A Bahubali Themed Wedding Designed By The Film’s Art Director Himself Was Nothing Less Than Extraordinary!

Gulf-based Keralite businessman, Ravi Pillai, had a Bahubali-themed wedding of Rs. 55 crore for his daughter Arathi, in Kollam district at Asramam ground. Arathi, a doctor, tied the knot with Adithya Vishnu, who’s also a doctor based in Kochi.

Ravi Pillai, one of the richest Keralites with a net worth of $2.8 billion (approx. Rs. 1,858.8 crore), is as generous as he is wealthy; from the Rs 55-crore budget, Rs 10-crore was spared solely for charity initiatives. Around 30,000 guests attended the ceremony, including 42 global leaders, comprising of royal members from the Middle-East, CEOs of various companies, government representatives, politicians, film stars, technocrats and diplomats. 250 cops and 350 private security personnel were also present, ensuring security for the high-profile guests.

The wedding, planned by the film art director of Bahubali itself, Sabu Cyril, featured dance performances by Malayalam film actresses Manju Warrier and Shobhana, a musical show conducted by Stephen Devassy, a dance fusion by Navya Nair, ghazal recitals by Manjari, and a Naga drama by actor Mukesh and his wife M ethil Devika. The wedding set was spread over eight acres and cost more than Rs. 20 crores. The pandal was made by a team of 200 professionals led by the film’s art director, who took nearly 75 days to create it; he exclaimed that the wedding set was larger than the one he had actually made for the movie!

The bride wore a lovely Manish Malhotra ensemble, paired with dazzling diamonds.

This Bridal Photo Shoot Of Ileana D’Cruz Is A Funky Representation Of The Modern Day Bride!

For centuries, Indian society, patriarchal in nature, has suppressed the bride into a box of ‘shoulds’ and taped with rules. The daughter, bride, and soon-to-be wife had responsibilities and she had no choice but to follow the societal norms. When it came to bidaai, shedding of tears was not just an emotional response; it was a necessity. And when it came to the period before the wedding, the to-be bride was always expected to be shy and embarrassed with the mention of marriage – her job was to flutter eyelids, escape from the room when marriage was being discussed, giggle softly, and sigh and swoon.

But, here we are in the 21st century, and girls, we feel it’s high time to break these stereotypes!

In her photo shoot for the Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop’s magazine, Ileana D’Cruz has deviated from everything that makes up the society-pleasing sanskaari bride. With 8 wedding commandments of her own, here comes the woman who is in control of her wedding, and ready to party it up on her own terms. She has swag, her desi thumkas burn the dance floor, and she can chug faster than you. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the new badass modern Indian bride!
