The Khan family had cause for celebration this week as Arpita Khan, the baby sister of Salman Khan, wed boyfriend Aayush Sharma in a multi event wedding spanning from Mumbai to Hyderabad. To make the union even more special, the couple pushed up their wedding date from January 2015 to this week to coincide with Khans’ parents golden wedding anniversary. The newlyweds had been friends for years before deciding to tie the knot.
The star studded affair kicked off with a Sangeet at the Khan residence in Mumbai and then moved to The Falaknuma Palace. For the ceremony Khan donned a red lengha by designers Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla. Embellished with gold embroidery and accessorized with a big multi stranded polki necklace the bride looked absolutely regal.
For the reception Arpita changed into a white Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla lengha dripping in Swarovski crystals and matching maang-tikka. Her multi-tiered cake was flawless. The different shapes and patterns with the gold accents were beautiful!

To prove that they are truly unique in their entertainment approach, Sevdha World Dance Entertainment created the world’s first and only interactive Belly Dance blog ”The Belly Dance Challenge.” The premise behind this is that two professional belly dancers from Sevdha.com select an unusual request from their Youtube comments to perform a belly dance to. The challenge is that they have one grueling hour to come up with a choreography on the spot. Hilarity ensues. From the conception to completed choreography, the entire process is filmed, and they publish an official dance video along with a funny bloopers reel of the challenge every 1-2 weeks.
They’ve done fun requests such as the Super Mario Brothers theme song and Gangnam Style. Subscribers can send their requests in by commenting them on the latest videos. They also do occasional tutorials, free lessons, and other entertaining videos. It’s a new show and it’s already gaining a fan base and lots of requests!

I know it’s just November, but I am planning ahead to the next few weeks. My husband’s cousin is getting married the first week of December in New York and I realize you cannot (and don’t have to) wear sandals with your Indian clothes in the winter. Pumps are a great solution and will keep your little toes nice and warm. I’m definitely getting into the holiday spirit and I was super excited to stumble across these beauties as I was ordering work clothes. I wanted to showcase this as a Shoe Day style because it really is the pair to wear to work and then to a fabulous night on the town. It’s also a classic and romantic pump for the Indian bride to wear under a fabulously fluffy, pink lengha. The Roxie glitter suede pumps are so much fun and are a creative flare to the basic suede pump. Colored as “quartz platinum”, the sexy – but extremely polished glitter – adds so much jazz to any outfit. A little over a 4” heel, this style can inspire you all holiday wedding season long! I particularly like it because it looks like a soft coating of snow– and I am excited about the outfits for this upcoming holiday season and winter weddings! PS: Did I mention this style is from JCrew?

Mrs. Saif Ali Khan has come out of hiding and looks more radiant than ever in November’s Harper’s Bazaar Bride cover. Her luscious curly locks, pouty red lips and deep smokey eye are a thing of beauty next to the unbelievably black and gold embroidered and embellished Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla anarkali. Inside the pages she donned a black and silver sequined lehnga.
The shoot took place in Dubai where Kareena Kapoor Khan emulated her past bridal look with a subtle touch of sindoor for the cover. Absolutely flawless!
