Deepika knew she wanted to achieve a different look for each event. When she visited New Delhi to do her shopping, she went straight to Roop Shringar Silk and Sarees, a boutique which carries its own in-house designers. “You go there and you sit on the floor,” she remembers. “They have this big assortment of clothes. They show you different designs and you can customize them. I loved their service.” After several hours there, she settled on the purple shalwar kameez for her Sikh ceremony, a traditional red lengha for the Hindu ceremony and a magenta lengha for the reception. “I wanted something that was fish cut and very sexy for the reception,” she says. “When my husband saw the one they showed us, he said ‘That’s the lengha you’re going to wear’.” And brides with limited time, take heart: Deepika did all her bridal shopping in India in two weeks. “We got my clothes, plus clothes for relatives, my husband and my jewelry.”
