Demonetisation drives Delhi brides to rental wedding websites

Le 6 December 2016, 08:40 dans Humeurs 0

First it was the shagun ka lifafa, now it’s Delhi’s wedding trousseaus that are bearing the brunt of demonetisation. The wedding season is here, but unlike earlier, when brides- to-be were able to spend hard cash on their favourite lehenga, this year their purse strings are a little tighter, forcing them to rent designer clothes.

Rental websites obviously have reason to cheer, since their sales have gone through the roof. And they believe this trend will gain more steam. “We were getting almost 50 clients every week, and the number has increased to 100 after demonetisation,” says Akshay Taneja, founder of

Sabena Puri, co-founder Stage3, says, “Now that people are short of hard cash, our customers have tripled in number.”

Kanika Dhingra, 26, who rented designerwear for her wedding, says, “It’s a great idea, especially after demonetisation. I was anyway not going to wear my wedding lehenga again. So I rented one to deal with the cash crunch.”

Nidhi Dhiman, who is getting married in January, adds: “I got the best of designerwear on rent for my wedding. The rates are also affordable. My parents and I were worried about my wedding trousseau shopping after demonetisation. Things are much more sorted now.”

Bollywood fashion has changed so much over the years that it’s actually incomparable. Today, it’s sharper and bolder than ever and almost all the beauties have their A-game on. Flamboyance rule, we say. One lady who takes this very seriously is Jacqueline Fernandez. Although she has a few misses on her side, mostly the actress is a delight to spot – both on the red carpet or otherwise.

Recently, on her way to The Animal Ball in London, we saw her in a gorgeous floor-length gown in a deep purple by Dsqaured2. The plunging neckline and the pleats waist-down were just too good to miss. Her choice of accessory was a pair of minimalistic earrings and we think it worked really well. Her make-up was spot on too with grey smokey eyes and soft pink lips. Celebrity hairstylist Rio Sreedharan, and make-up artist Sadaf Ahmad did a good job here.

Meanwhile, Kajal Aggarwal’s hot pink number actually made us sweat! She really worked the trench dress from Plakinger with a pair of metallic heels from Dune London. Natural waves framed her face and nude lips worked its charm here. We think celebrity stylist Anisha Jain did a brilliant job by putting this look together because she sure did look hotter than the sun! And it’s really apt for a nice and casual evening out with friends or even a special someone. Seriously, can’t find any faults here.

Fu, an internet engineer, told MailOnline that she got into bodybuilding about three years ago when she felt she was overweight.

She followed a tough workout regime and a strict diet.

The newlywed said she was proud to be called 'the strongest bride' by media.

Fu explained: 'I think this is great. Being called "strong" means I have exercised well.

'After all, it was hard for a woman to grow muscles.'

Fu said she had always been a plus-size woman, and three years ago she decided to lose weight properly through serious training.

She started from yoga before move on to weights to build muscles.

She got to know her husband, who is also a bodybuilder, around the same time. The couple would go to the gym together for dates and encourage each other to stick to their training routines.

Fu said: 'Working out has a special meaning for us as it helped us build our relationship. Many of our friends wanted us to have a set of exercise-themed wedding pictures, however we did not manage to due to some obstacles.

'So we started thinking how to combine working out with our wedding. And I thought why not doing pull-ups in my wedding dress?'
