Today we have a feature on an awesome jewelry e-commerce site that a friend and I discovered a few weeks before her wedding. She realized she needed a few last minute accessories and was on the hunt for some pretty jewelry for her mehndi. I had heard about an upcoming jewelry trunk show by an online bazaar for South Asian jewelry, accessories and home goods and thought it would be a great place for her to browse.
The Aniika trunk show was such a hit - and as you can see, Anu got this lovely pair of Urva Earrings to match her mehndi outfit. She even picked out a few other lovely pieces for partywear and other occasions. I picked up a few things myself - the prices are very reasonable and the quality is great!
If you’re looking for some jewelry or accessories to glam up for an upcoming wedding or party, check out Aniika’s Inspired Bazaar online to see some of their other fab curated designs:

Not only is Aparna creative, but she was also a cost effective bride. She had her bridal mehndi done by her cousin, at home and with karaoke as the entertainment. All great ideas for the budget focused bride!
From Aparna ~ We had a mehndi for family and friends at my house. My cousin is an amazing mehndi artist so she did my bridal mehndi. I was really excited to have her do this because not only is she really talented but if I was going to sit still for hours at a time I would much rather it be with someone I know! We had traditional Gujarati food at the party because Karthik’s family is South Indian so we wanted to do something a little different. We also had a Karaoke machine with English and Hindi songs.
Garba up next!
Vidya Balan at her Mehndi in a Sabyasachi sari. What I love about Vidya is she has a classic sari style and keeps her look consistent. I do wish she had gotten more Mehndi though! Image from vogue.in
Love these mirror work Zara shoes and matching purse. Perfect for a mehndi or sangeet outfit!
Hi! I came across this great idea for those of you Boho-chic brides. Fun favors for your guests’ feet =) These jutis/mojaris would be great for a colorful Mehndi or Sangeet event. The couple that gave these away had a “bazaar” themed event - so creative. Many are one-size and the backless ones are good for everyone!
Here’s a list of vendors that sell these in India.
