When one is constantly body shamed in day to day life, you can only imagine how much worse this gets during a wedding especially when you're the bride or groom. The added pressure to look the ‘best’, for some reason this translates into looking fairer or losing weight. It’s the constant advice from anyone and everyone that makes one conscious, eventually deciding against wearing what they would have loved to. For every woman who struggles to embrace her curves, especially during her wedding, Sakshi is proof that when you're comfortable in your skin, you can pull off every single look with grace.

Here's what she wore for it all!
The bride chose to wear a custom Tarun Tahiliani couture for her haldi breaking away from the classic yellow and pink. The highlight was her hair which had white fabric braided into her hair. It looked like a flowing string of pearls. She paired this with chunky gold jewelry and this complimented her outfit.
Her rehearsal dinner gown looked straight out of the 80s Hollywood magazine with her bold red lips and winged eyes. She wore Gauri & Nainika's ivory mikado gown with a hint of a daring red bustier and a chic black grosgrain ribbon at the waist.
For an intimate path with her family, she wore an ocean blue lehenga, giving all the minimal pastel girlies a run for their money!
For her Sagan night, Sakshi definitely, had the ‘It outfit’ bringing the ‘baharon phool barsao’ meaning with her floral-themed party that followed. She wore a coffee-tone lehenga by Seema Gujral that featured bright floral appliqué motifs with the gleam of sequins and crystals.
She looked like a beautiful flamingo in her sangeet outfit in her Falguni Shane custom lehenga.
And finally, for The Day, Sakshi chose to be the coral bride in a pink lehenga with a veil that looked like a dream.
