The Blushing Bride: Sudeshna Poddar

It is said marriages are made in heaven and after going through the stories of my brides, I have to agree that it is true. In my blog, Blushing Bride is my most favorite section. It gives me an immense pleasure to see the brides glow on their special days. The feeling I get while going through their stories, their pictures of blossoming from girl to bride is truly overwhelming. And when both of the bride and groom are your friends, the feeling is indescribable



Today on “Blushing Brides” we are featuring a very pretty lady, Sudeshna Poddar, who got married on 27th November 2015 and today she is here to share her wedding moments with us. Yes, it has been more than a year that she got entwined in this beautiful bond, but the memories are still so fresh. 

Let us have a look :)

How did you guys meet?
Though our colleges were located side by side, we never crossed each others' path during the college years. I studied in Lady Brabourne college, while he at National Medical College. We surely had walked past each others' college gates a million times, but never did we meet. Irony of our fates! It took two more years and the intervention of two of our close friends that we finally met in 2011. And we fell in love with each other at first sight.


So how long did you get to plan your entire wedding?
Our wedding date (27th November, 2015) was fixed around the October of 2014. So, we got little more than a year to plan our wedding. My mother and I were the wedding planners. We had meticulously planned everything-from the decoration of the groom's car with orchids to the chadnatola with earthen pots to the Bengali-themed menu which included Bengal's delicacies like Radhaballavi and Hilsa.



Tell us something about where you got your outfits and accessories, both wedding and reception.


Most of my wedding trousseau was shopped from Adi Mohini Mohan Kanjilal, Kolkata. For my wedding, I selected a traditional red and gold banarasi silk saree and a magenta pashmina banarasi silk for my reception. 


I bought designer blouses for both the banarasi sarees from Mriganayani in Dakshinapan. My wedding trousseau is predominated by traditional silk sarees in various colors like a gold and sea green brocade kanjivaram, a bottle green assam silk, swarnachuri in royal blue etc. since I love wearing classic silk sarees. I also bought a beige and maroon lehenga for my sangeet. For the morning of the wedding, I selected a red and white garad silk saree, while for my haldi, I chose a yellow handloom saree.


 Most of my gold jewellery pieces were bought from Anjali Jewellers and Senco Jewellers. The jhumkas and chur I wore on my wedding night belonged to my mother. I also wore a jarowa bracelet gifted by my grandmother, which she herself had worn on her wedding years ago. The costume jewellery were bought from various places- the three-tier matha patti from Roop Rani in Simpark Mall, the nath from Nnoni, the Marathi nathni and brooch from Sasarams in Treasure Island, the payal, kamarbandh and silver tiara from Adi Mohini Mohan Kanjilal. I bought the batua for my wedding from Pantaloons and a golden clutch for my reception from Adi Mohini Mohan Kanjilal. Shoes for both the occassions were bought from Metro Shoes.

Where did you get your makeup and hair done?
On both occassions, my makeup artist was Kalpita De Sikdar of Exotica Salon in Durgapur. She is an outstanding MUA and understands the individual choices very well. She had done my hair and makeup exactly as I had requested and dreamt of. For my wedding, I had a traditional Bengali look with bold eyes. The 'kone-chandan' was simple yet elegant. For my reception, I opted for a simpler and fuss free makeup and hair.


Tell us something about your photographer.
We engaged Sombit Dey of Kolkata to cover our pre-wedding and wedding. He is not only an excellent photographer, but also a very good human being. He has made a spectacular wedding album for us and we cannot get enough of it even after a year has passed.


Any special moment you want to share with us?
It's very difficult to mention a single special moment. The entire event was like a fantasy unfolding before my eyes.


Any advice you want to all the readers out there?
Two things can make or break your D-day- MUA and Photographer. So invest in both of these, even if you have to compromise in some other field. And enjoy your day. A happy bride is a beautiful bride.


DeckandDine says:-
I just completely adore her wedding look, traditional, elegant and classy. The reception look was gorgeous as well, a perfect blend of traditional and modern elements.
When you are truly happy, it shows in your face. This happens with Sudeshna too. The bridal glow is impeccable.




Thank you Sudeshna and Sudip for letting us feature your journey here. I hope your life together will always be filled with joy, happiness and lots of love. And ohh!!.. You two look so adorable together. God bless :)
