The pretty, talented and stylish designer Kresha Bajaj has been roped in to make the trousseau for the bride, most of which comprises three main outfits.
Other than a dreamy fairytale gown for the Christian ceremony on October 8, the Hindu ceremony’s ensemble is worthy of a story.
The bride will wear a special South Indian woven sari that was owned and adorned by the groom’s grandmother, D Rajeswari, the wife of legendary filmmaker D Ramanaidu.
This is Samantha’s ode to the Akkineni and Dagubatti families, and she tells us that she is most honoured to be wearing it.
Kresha is adding her own touches to the sari, mostly by equipping the drape with jewels from her husband Vanraj Zaveri’s atelier.
Some of these will be arm bands, waist bands and various necklaces, all in diamonds, gold and kundan. Now that’s one beautiful and bountiful bride.
