VOGUE INDIA NOVEMBER 2008 - must have for the brides-to-be

Vogue November 2008 Issue - covER STories:

- Vogue's Bridal Issue: How to get your WOW wedding
- Starring VICTORIA BECKHAM as the Indian Bride
- Winter Must-haves for your wardrobe
- India's Most Eligible Men
- The world's sexiest Hotels
(should have added the caption - 'for your honeymoon')

This month's vogue is all about weddings. Every to-be bride must grab an issue.

I am glad it hit on stands - it is loaded with very useful information and a wedding directory. The Wedding Makers section and the Bridal Beauty Bible is very useful. Bridal Beauty Bible features info on best bridal make-up and hair, best bridal mehendi, henna and crystals, best hair treatments, best facials, best dermatologists, best honeymoon spas. Another good piece of info for brides are how to prevent a make-up meltdown on your wedding day.
How many times have we seen brides rummaging for such information, but this month's (November 2008) VOGUE ISSUE will save them from all the troubles.

The Wedding Makers is your one stop-guide to find:
- Celebrity Wedding Planners
- Beautiful Wedding Card Designers
- Your perfect wedding cake
- Celebrity wedding dance choreographer
- DJ to rock your sangeet night
......... and more

Sari Draping
One important lesson many girls look for is - Sari Draping. Vogue has even supplied you with that information - Kalpana Shah of Mumbai, an expert in sari-draping, takes sari-draping classes.
(not from Vogue) Kalpana Shah can drape sarees in almost all styles- Gujarati, Hyderabadi, Bhopali, Lehenga, Bengalee, Assameese or even 9 yards style. She will visit your home/wedding venue to help you with the delicate but often complicated task.

Contact her on: 9821065449. For more information on the expert click here.

He captures the best moments of your LIFE (from your wedding). So many people don't give too much heed to photographer, but I think a good photographer is a MUST-HAVE, even if it means shelling out a little extra. You cannot skimp on someone who will show you your wedding through his pictures for the rest of your life.
Vogue featured two photographers: Karen Wise (001-917-5399908) and Ilesh Shah (9879799964) in their Bridal Issue.
- "Personalised gifts and favours for each guest are becoming a huge trend"
- "Keep your wedding gifts' tags intact and make a list of what each person has given you. On personalised stationery, write thank you notes, mentioning the gift they've given and what you've done with it"
- "Brides should drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices in between the meals to keep them going, as they need energy more than anyone else"
-"Foods to avoid bloating - strong coffee, colas and alcohol; avoid eating raw salad and lentils for one day before"
- "Skin Prep Tip - apply L'Occitane Olive Radiance Masque half an hour before make-up for super smooth skin"
- "Rick Dicecca, global make-up stylist at Estee Lauder, says that the big bridal make-up trend this season is - a very shimmery, smoky eye with beautiful pale lips" [i will skip the pale lip part as Indian brides with the dark reds, pinks or similarly coloured bridal lehengas will not look pretty with pale lips].

BEAUTIFY recommends:
The best designers for wedding lehengas:
- All those girls who want a smart yet Indian wedding lehenga in different colour (bored of the usual bridal lehenga's colour palette?) to make you look beautiful and sophisticated check out Shantanu and Nikhil's wedding collection, they have a wonderful range which is different from the oh-so-everywhere lehengas and sarees. I even like their sherwanis for men.
- To bring out that Indian girl within you, I will suggest Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The mix of fabrics, prints and a multitude of colours is Sabyasachi's expertise and the way he plays with his bridal collection will surely stop your groom's heartbeat when he will look at you on the wedding day.
- For those who can shell out over 3-4 lakhs on their lehengas and are looking for an exquisite and lavish creation then Tarun Tahiliani is your guy (also featured in Vogue). Vogue's November Issue says, 'Tarun Tahiliani has dressed everyone from Jemima Khan to Priya Chatwal on the most important day of their lives'.

Click here to get a list on Designer Stores in Delhi (also check out the Crescent Mall and Ogaan for your wedding shopping).

So all those to-be bride and single girls - if you haven't got your Vogue copy yet, its time you grab one before it sells out. You can also gift it to your bride-to-be friend; it surely will make a beautiful gift.
