They don't want to compromise on the look, jewellery, and the clothes. Despite the pandemic, the brides are dressing in the way they have always dreamed -- they are wanting to do what makes them happy and makes them look good.
Q: Share with us how the collaboration came to be.
A: We have been wanting to design jewellery for a long time now.

For brides-to-be, there is no substitute for a consistent skincare routine and a well planned pre-bridal appointment with a dermatologist. If you haven’t done so until the last moment, these quick remedies will help you look your best on your big day.
Remove makeup before bed
Double cleanse your face by using micellar water followed by a mild face wash to remove makeup completely before you sleep. If you are too tired by the end of the day (especially after one too many celebratory cocktails), keep alcohol-free makeup remover wipes at your bedside for a quick cleanse.

Chapped lips fix
For instantly soft and lipstick-ready lips, mix sugar, coconut oil, and honey and apply over lips. Leave on for 10 minutes and gently exfoliate lips with a clean toothbrush.
To avoid eye puffiness, elevate your head by using an extra pillow under the head when sleeping. This will prevent fluid pooling under the eyes. To temporarily reduce undereye puffiness, place chilled (brewed) green tea bags over closed eyes for 10mins.
Waking up with a pesky zit is every bride’s worst nightmare. Cleanse your face every night with a salicylic acid-based face wash and exfoliate gently once a week. If you do breakout, resist the urge to pick at it. Instead, use acne patches with hydrocolloids to speed up healing and conceal acne under the wedding makeup.
Keep the frizz away
A tried and tested home remedy for shiny, frizz-free hair is to mix apple cider vinegar, yogurt, honey, and aloe vera. Use this as a hair mask for 30-minutes and rinse off with a mild shampoo for glossy strands. (Patch test for possible allergies)
