How did you conceive the idea of Dulhanama?
The idea behind Dulhanama was to make jewellery that was trendy, lightweight and affordable which young women could wear for festivities and pre-wedding ceremonies like Mehendi, Haldi, Sangeet etc. The idea originated with the recognition of the need for affordable jewellery options that stylised the brides and bridesmaids’ look.

Why do you feel this kind of handcrafted jewellery is so popular among brides?
Handcrafted jewellery is popular because it can be styled in any way, can be worn even after the wedding for festivities and other weddings. Also, they add glam to your outfit without taking away from it.
What specific demands do you usually get from brides when it comes to this kind of jewellery?
The only thing we hear from our brides is customisation, customisation and customisation! Each bride wants something which is unique, trendy and which stands out in all her wedding ceremonies. And handcrafted jewellery is something which is quite trending these days.
What specific colours or trends do you feel are going to be a rage for summer brides this season?
From bridal lehenga to jewellery, everything in pastel is trending big time. This wedding season has been all about a toned down bride in all natural shades and it’s going all pink, peach, pale green. Not just the outfit and jewellery but Varmalas are also trending in pastel colours.
What do you feel is the perfect outfit & jewelry combo for the summer brides this season?
If it’s a day Mehendi, pastel outfits are huge. I’d suggest wearing contrasting floral jewellery that brings out the colour of the outfit. And for Haldi, all white floral jewellery is the deal this season. It looks fresh, is easy on the eye and very classy at the same time.
What’s your take on bridesmaid jewellery? What important points should they keep in mind before picking a piece?
I personally feel bridesmaids can experiment a lot more than brides. So they should get all quirky and just have fun while dressing up!
Okay all you lovely ladies out there, we hope you took some big time notes from this conversation!
