Outfit - Colour Coordinate With Your Sister
For the at-home mehendi celebrations, Radhika Merchant colour coordinated with sister Anjali Merchant. Not only the sisters, their mother Shaila Merchant too went twinning with her daughters. The three wore pretty yellow ensembles for the mehendi ceremony. Radhika Merchant chose a mirror-work, anarkali kurta set for the pre-wedding ritual. Her yellow coloured anarkali suit had cap sleeves and intritcate mirror work all over. Her suit was teamed with a yellow coloured organza dupatta.
Jewellery - Minimal
With this heavy embellished suit, Radhika Merchant opted for minimal jewellery. She wore just a pair of pearl drop earrings with the look.
Hair And Makeup - Fresh And Dewy
It is best to keep your hair off-face for ceremonies like haldi and mehendi. Radhika Merchant too tied her hair at the back with the outfit. Her makeup was kept really minimal, just a thick liner and some nude coloured lip gloss. Her face was rounded off with a small bindi.
Outfit - Heavy Embroidered Pink And Green Skirt Set
You know, you gotta dance all night at the sangeet night, after all, you are the bride's sister. For this pre-wedding ceremony, you need something that makes you stand out but also an outfit that is on the comfy side that doesn't stop you from dancing all night.
Radhika Merchant for a pre-wedding celebration picked a pink and green embroidered lehenga from Rahul Mishra's festive collection - Maraasim. Her outfit didn't have a regular blouse, it had a loose-fit blouse which had a scalloped hemline. It was teamed with a green lehenga made using light-weight organza. Both her skirt and blouse had intricate threat work and that made the combination look dreamy. Radhika carried the outfit sans a dupatta.
Jewellery - Diamonds And Emerald
With outfits like these, you don't really need to put on a lot of jewellery. The outfit does all the talking! However, Radhika, who likes to go minimal, completed her look with a stack of diamond bangles and a pair of drop diamond and emerald earrings.
Hair And Makeup - Soft
Again, when you don a heavy outfit like this one, you can go low key with your hair and makeup. That's just what Radhika did. Her hair were done in a voluminous ponytail and were decorated with some white flowers. Her makeup was kept on the pink side, smokey eyes, pink blush, and pink lips.
Outfit - Ivory Lehenga
For her sister's wedding day, Radhika Merchant chose a stunning, heavy embellished lehenga in shade ivory. Ivory is one of the biggest trends of the season and you have been hunting for a lehenga then something like this can be your pick. Both her choli and lehenga had intricate embellishments. The net dupatta had a thick embellished border. It was draped from the back to front like a saree pallu.
Jewellery - Diamonds And Gold
Radhika Merchant went OTT with her jewellery picks on her sister's D-day. Along with a statement diamond choker, she wore a layered necklace gold set. A heavy maang tika, jhumkas, and stack of diamond bangles were her other accessory picks with the look. Also, don't miss her beautiful gold baajubandh.
Hair And Makeup - Neat And Matte
Radhika's hair were neatly done for the wedding day. They were braided in the front and tied at the back in a braided bun. Her hair were accessorised with some white flowers. Talking about her makeup, it was kept all matte with a soft base, heavy eyes, and brown lip shade.
