While planning the wedding, they were quite clear on the vision they had in mind for their big day. Both of them knew that they wanted to create a magical, memorable and fun experience for their family and friends. And that’s exactly what they did, with a little help from

One of the most integral aspects of planning a wedding is deciding on the bride and groom’s outfits for the multiple occasions a wedding calls for. As both Melani and Neeraj were based out of New York City, sourcing an entire wedding wardrobe seemed to be a little daunting to them. That is, until they decided to work closely with old friends of theirs – Mohini Boparai and Sunjay Gularia of ensured that the process was as uncomplicated as possible for the bride-to-be. To begin with, Melanie started first by deciding on the overall look and feel she wanted at each event, scouring the internet for inspiration. A regular fashionista herself, she also scoured the designs of her favourite designers to see who could help in fulfilling her vision.

Melanie then created mood boards for each of the four distinct looks she had planned and shared the same with the team. The team put together a lookbook featuring not only her favourite designers, but also designers the team thought would fit in well with her vision and sartorial aesthetic.

A quick trip to India, where Melanie met with designers was all it took to shortlist the final trousseau with the help of the team.  For final conversations about design and fit, the team arranged e-mail exchanges, calls and Skype appointments for Melanie and the designers and ultimately, ensured that Melanie got her dream trousseau for her dream wedding.

“One would think shopping for your wedding attire online would be risky, but I had a really successful experience. Mohini’s team ensured I was able to get the customisations I needed and most importantly, access to the best designers around. I loved each of my outfits and they all complimented my ceremony themes so beautifully” – said Melanie, about her experience with the team.
