Sonali's gown offers a glimpse into the future of bridalwear
An Indian bride went all-out for her wedding reception, wearing an LED gown to the event.
Sonali Fabiani Raheja got married in February 2021 and she wore a red lehenga for her wedding as well as several other stunning outfits for her pre-wedding festivities.
Her wedding reception outfit has now gone viral in 2022 for its uniqueness.
Sonali’s sleeveless gown featured intricate sequinned detailing. But it was the LED lights that made her stand out in pink among the night sky.
The gown was designed by Neeta Lulla as part of ‘The Millennial Bride’ collection which is dedicated to new-age brides.
Sonali’s gown offers a glimpse into the future of bridalwear with a combination of technology and design.
The outfit works through the use of fibre optic technology and is inspired by the universe and galaxies.
It lights up and is designed to display a spectrum of colours.
Her outfit complimented her statement necklace and tiara. Sonali also wore bracelets around her henna-adorned arms and opted for white nail polish.
Sonali’s husband Jaynit Raheja matched with a light-up bow-tie and pocket square, contrasting with his black tuxedo.
The outfit went viral and social media users loved it, however, many wanted to know how much the gown was.
Sonali recalled how she came across the unique gown, revealing that she had been looking through Neeta Lulla’s Instagram page.
The Indian bride said: “I was looking through Neeta’s Instagram page and I saw one highlight that said ‘Millennial Bride’.
“And I was like what is that, so I messaged Neeta and I was like, ‘what is this design you have and what is this concept?’
“She said, ‘this is our Millennial Bride look, this is our LED dress’, and I was like, ‘wow’.”
Sonali went on to ask Neeta if it would be possible for her to have one.
Neeta said: “Of course.”
Sonali continued: “And the rest is history and she made me look like a real-life princess on my reception day, lit up.
“And she made Jaynit a bow-tie and a matching pocket square which also lit up.
“That moment when we just walked out together, greeted all our friends and family as a married couple for the first time, it was spectacular.”
