Last year, I had to get ready for my cousin’s marriage. It was held in the month of December and I still remember that it was too cold on that day. It was an extremely special moment for me and my family members since my cousin sister was getting married. In order to get ready, I had purchased a beautiful traditional saree along with matching accessories such as ear rings, necklace, ear rings, sandals and others. Another cousin of mine helped me to get ready wearing everything properly. I wore a pink colored Indian saree and matching high heel sandals. The saree had a very beautiful embroidery at the border which was red in color and hence I chose to wear red accessories with it.
It was an auspicious occasion and I wanted to dress up nicely. The way my cousin assisted me in getting ready for the day was really helpful. Also, she herself is a beautician and knows all the tips on how to look good with a great make up and style for the wedding event. At the end, I got successful in being dressed up the way I wanted as I got appreciation from everybody in the wedding party with good comments on my dressing style and the accessories that I wore for the day. It was truly a memorable day for me.
