The Bride Story – Priscilla Kunamalla and Siddharth Dave

Every bride we work with is special to us and our anxiety, if not equal, is paramount to her, as we understand that one of the most important part of the special day is how she has envisioned her look from the day she was a little girl.

For the most important day of her life, the outfit should speak exactly who you are and that is the unmitigated motivation we came into existence. Dilli Darzi is one of a kind Bridal Designer Studio based in Aurora, IL and serving clients all over the country. We have the most wonderful clients we have worked with outside the state , who we never ever met personally but our model is designed to work on every single detail you can think of from anywhere in the world . We have been lucky enough to make a positive and happy contribution to so many of our brides.

Today I am starting this series called ‘The Bride Story’ to share the journey of our brides with you.

Our Bride of the day is Priscilla Kunamalla based in Chicago, IL. Her family is based in Naperville and the wedding was planned in Chicago.

How we met – She came to us by word of mouth and we talked over phone outlining the basics and the journey started.
It is always great to work with brides who have a vision in mind and are ready to place their complete trust in you. . She had very precise ideas of how she wanted the outfits to look, the color scheme and the entire look for her wedding. She was looking for a culmination of different ideas from a bunch of styles she had seen for her lehenga, Ivory and threadwork was her vision. Our phenomenal Designer Tarishi has never failed me, she came up with sketches that were the melting pot of all the ideas.
Priscilla was looking to create a white lehenga inspired by chicken/thread embroidery embellished with sequins and beads to give it the right amount of bling for an evening wedding planned in the outdoors.
For her Reception, she wanted a deep maroon rich looking lehenga with a combination of gold.


Sure enough – We pulled the majestic look through by taking care of each detail carefully. I have heard of many brides and their families flying back to India for the wedding outfits – If I fathom, I always feel they end up spending at least 3k in tickets, the stay, the hassle you go through streaming through packed shopping places and probably picking up outfits that are highly overpriced OR if you decide to go custom, ending up with a bad fitting when you are back here and no body to follow up with. The dearth of high end designer outfits for weddings is paramount here and I feel all the Indian weddings planned here have inevitably a trip planned to India for what? We came into play to fill this gap. You don’t have to go all the way to India for bringing your vision alive nor do you have to pick any outfit off the rack which does not have your signature. Each of our brides is extremely special to us and we treat every detail with a lot of attention and that is when a wedding vision like this comes alive.

We had a great time communicating with Priscilla about the sketches, the samples, her feedbacks, our revisions, construction of outfit and the final outcome. I will let the pictures do the talking now .. Till the next Bride Story – Adios!
