Young, independent, confident – an entrepreneur from New Delhi, India named Sanjana Rishi recently surprised her followers on Instagram when she posted her wedding day pictures wearing a powerful light-colored pant suit instead of a heavily embellished ‘lehenga choli’. 

Sanjana made quite a statement wearing a net dupatta over her smartly stitched and comfortably loose-fit modern outfit and looked awe-inspiring in elegant makeup, amritsari mangtikka and statement jewelry. 

On Instagram, the Punjabi beauty captioned her images as:

Unprecedented vibes

Who says bridal looks have to fit a mould, cultural or otherwise? The only thing a look must fit (other than your body) is your personality! I wanted to choose a wedding outfit that encapsulated my style but also stayed true to my commitment to supporting sustainability, local artisans and ethical shopping. I think I did great!  Something old: These earrings I stole from @salonikotwal & @_rangana 
Something new: My stunning jewelry, put together by @anumerton and talented artisans in basically 4 days & this custom made-to-order #veilpatta by @toraniofficial Something borrowed: My bustier, which belonged to my best friends’ (@instagirma + @stop_youplay2much) mom, hand dyed by a frantic me the night before the wedding using old coffee. Something blue: The beyond gorgeous Pre-owned #GianfrancoFerre powder blue pantsuit of my dreams. I’m never going to get over how I look and feel in this outfit!

She further shared the details of something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue : Sanjana gave credits to everyone who contributing in achieving her D-Day look!
