Summer Wedding Looks at Tulip Inn Mussoorie

Indian weddings are known for there style, grandeur, tradition and magnificence. You got down on one knee, popped the question and celebrated with a bottle of the best bubbly. Now it’s time for the wedding preparations, and a trend which is really catching on these days is that of planning a destination wedding. Not only are foreigners coming to Indian shores to tie the knot, but Indians themselves are looking for exotic wedding destinations to say ‘I Do’ in style!

Hill-stations are very popular for summer destination weddings, and couples who wish a unique picturesque wedding are exploring these areas for extraordinary experience. The misty cool breeze, the warm sunrise of the lush green valley can be the best bet while choosing among hill-stations to host a destination wedding!




If you remember, a few months back (during the winter season), I shared a wedding destination post on this blog about a beautiful resort hotel - Tulip Inn Green n Breeze in Barlowganj, and hotel Tulip Inn Green Castle at Mall Road, in Mussoorie. So many of you loved the locations, and I thought I should shoot for you a few images related to typical wedding fashion, showing you how differently pretty both destinations look when thought to plan a summer wedding there!

I collaborated with the hotel once again last month, and landed there to surround myself with a surreal view of the Himalayan sunset, beautiful Doon valley surrounded by tree-covered hills, and the clear night sky with countless twinkling stars. I shot for two different looks at both the properties, and you can check it all out below..



LOOK 1 - Shot at Tulip Inn Green n Breeze


My first look included a bright green lehenga set designed in brocade full-length skirt and cut-sleeve blouse with net dupatta, bordered too with brocade! The Indian design print with golden on both the blouse and lehenga make it a traditional wear apt for a daytime function. I love how the lehenga fitted me on the waist perfectly, giving it a shape with a flair below and the blouse fits apt on the shoulders too. I chose to keep the dupatta on one side, and show off my ethnic jewelry matched perfectly in green and golden to keep it summery and elementary! Finished of my look with subtle makeup on the face and green stilettos in feet.

Tulip Inn Green n Breeze is a ravishing resort hotel spread over 4 floors, with 35 luxurious guest rooms, nestled at Barlowganj, just 5 kms away from the hustle bustle of Mussoorie city. It has 24x7 hospitality support that takes care of you from the time you check in till you leave! With that, some of the most attractive facilities include :  Kids Corner, Table Tennis and Gym Area, Spa/Massage and Jogging Track.

Look 2 - Shot at Tulip Inn Green Castle


The second look that I created is for the main wedding function, where I opted for a heavy lehenga set designed in black and golden, looking nothing less than a dreamy outfit (could be even worn by a bride who doesn't believe in not-wearing-black-for-wedding). I absolutely am swayed by the gorgeous set that includes a heavy net skirt with glitter patches on it, a black crop top with full sleeves and a net dupatta bordered with glitter as well! Since the entire ensemble was pretty jazzy, I chose to add a little more sparkle with my stunning jewelry, keeping it traditional and royal at the same time. Put on a 3 layer swanky neckpiece along with dangling earrings, rhine-stone maang tikka and gold glitter heels along with classy makeup to complete my look!

This second property by Tulip Inn is named as Hotel Green Castle, which rests at Mall Road, girded by cedar forests on the edge of the Himalayan hillside, amidst many majestic places that have an array of sights to see! The facilities at this hotel remains similar to those at the Barlowganj resort with just a few more recreations surrounding like the Kempty Falls, Horse Riding, Company Garden, St. George Cottage, Local Shopping Market, Street Food Joints, etc..


-----------------------------------------


Mussoorie is a splendid place for an out-of-the-box wedding. This hill station is full of ravishing vintage architecture and best hotels (2 of those that I mentioned above) with alluring surroundings that make sure that ceremonies become nothing less than heavenly for you, and are great for a pre-wedding photoshoots too! The summer months of April to June are warm in the day and cool at night, most suited for destination weddings, and if you are planning to tie the knot sometime soon, starting from now to mid-June is the best time to host the ceremonies.


PS : Read everything in detail about the two Tulip Inn hotels in Mussoorie, in my other post HERE, and feel free to contact me for any other considerations. Also, do let me know which of the two looks from this post is your your favorite. I'd love to read your feedback!


PPS : Tons of thanks to Hera Fatima Naqvi for travelling with me all the way to the queen of hills, and gifting me these amazing photographs. JSYK, she's my best friend from the school time and I feel I can never thank her enough for helping me with work, and not just being a shoulder to cry on for all my problems!

  3. I just loveeddd the second look because I am a hoarder of black color stuffs. This lehenga with glitter patches on it and is so ravishing and also not going OTP with the blouse and keeping it simple is the best idea with added jewellery on it Is like a cherry on cake. Thou I loved the first lehenga as well! But my love for black is eternal and I love this place where you shot these looks. Perfect for destination weddings and I am mesmerized with beauty of this place and these pictures are lovely. You're looking like a hill princess here.. Loved it totally. ��������

    Well it's very difficult to select any one look...as both the looks have their own beauty along with the natures mesmerizing beauty...
    Both the attires have their different appearance...The green one is showing a bit of calmness and relaxness in the beautiful background as the colour is looking very soothing to the eyes...
    And on the other hand The Black One is showing and reflecting a sense of Royality as the Black attire along with the accessories adds another charm to the look...
    So it's very difficult to say anyone favourite... but if to choose anyone of those...I would choose the Green one due to its vibrant and different look as The Green Attire seems to be perfect for the beautiful surrounding...������

  35. It was such an intimate moment and you could really feel the love and energy in the New York wedding venues. Our ceremony was the most beautiful and romantic ceremony I could have ever expected (and all our guests made sure to tell us they felt the same way once it was over!).
