Brides Today December 2020

India Today Group, India’s premier media conglomerate with over 42 years of media heritage, announces new beginnings with Brides Today, a luxury wedding magazine, which is an extension of the group’s monopoly over the couture wedding space. The publication is a one-stop shop for brides, grooms, and their families to plan and execute luxe weddings. It offers the same high-end look and feel that readers and brands have come to love over the years with the group’s previous wedding publication. Brides Today will publish 10 issues per year, targeting not only the bride and groom, but the entire bridal brigade and all high-life enthusiasts. The content boasts of luxury weddings, opulent bridal-wear and international lifestyle along with the latest trends in destination events, honeymoon hotspots, spectacular soirées, and more. It promises to make nuptial journeys a fairytale for every bride and groom to-be, as well as all attendees, scoping everything from dream dresses to diamonds, haute couture to décor. Each of the 10 issues will have a central wedding theme, which will bind all the sections together. Depending on the theme of a particular issue, all the sections from fashion to wedding planning, from beauty to jewellery, will talk about bridal fashion, jewellery, destinations and planning tips related to executing that theme. In a nutshell, it will be an A-Z guide on that particular wedding theme. “We are very excited to offer Brides Today, a one-of-its-kind content platform, which eases readers into this important category in India. I am honoured to be entrusted with such an overwhelming legacy and such a luxurious title. Being an India Today Group publication is a proud moment and we hope to provide our readers with the kind of content they want,” said Nupur Mehta Puri, the editor of the magazine. The magazine will be an eclectic mix of modernity and tradition, the complete package for the contemporary couple looking to turn their wedding day dream to reality. The brand also addresses a groom’s needs too, with special features on men’s wear, lifestyle updates, and tips on grooming. All in all, the publication has a celebratory vibe to it, while catering to the booming bridal market in the country.

what truly matters

NANDINI BHALLA Over the past few weeks, while contemplating the surreal year we are bidding goodbye to, I have posed the same question to several people: what is the one thing 2020 taught you? And each one of the friends, family, and colleagues I spoke with, came back with a surprisingly similar response: ‘The importance of meaningful connections’. At Brides Today, we have often spoken about the importance and beauty of deep, authentic connections. And as weddings become more intimate in these times, the joy of togetherness takes on even greater significance. It is in this same spirit that we have created this issue of Brides Today. Generously sprinkled with exquisite outfits to make you feel and look your best; striking jewellery to be cherished forever; and a healthy dose of ideas and inspiration…

catching up with diana penty

Growing up, Diana Penty wasn’t comfortable being in the spotlight. She was an awkward teenager, who did not meet the so-called standards of ‘ideal’ beauty: some said she was ‘too thin’ or ‘too tall’. Little did she know that she would go on to become a celebrity, one day. Since then, the actor—who made her debut with Cocktail in 2012—has long shed her inhibitions. Diana is now a versatile actor, with a varied repertoire—from the rebellious protagonist in Happy Bhag Jayegi to the security expert in the spy thriller Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, among others. Even off-screen, Diana isn’t someone to be dictated by stereotypes. When Covid-19 confined everyone to the indoors, the 35-year-old joined hands with the Khaki Project to support police officers in Mumbai working on the frontlines.…

the rewear series

IRA DUBEY ACTOR “My mom [actor Lillette Dubey] has always had an eclectic and experimental style. She wears the sari in a traditional, classic way and that has inspired my style of draping the sari, too,” the actor shares with us. That said, Ira enjoys adding an extra element to her look to make it relevant to the times, with silver jewellery and experimental blouse patterns. “The sari blouse can change the entire look, in my opinion,” she adds. For this sari essay, the actor is wearing her mother’s sari that is over a decade old, and also her favourite blouse. Ira has paired these with her sister’s vintage jewellery. “Mom has a gorgeous sari collection, and she often purchases one during her travels. I have had my eye on this particular piece for…
