Ever stuck on what to wear as a guest to an Indian wedding? There are so many different directions you can go from all out glam to Indian-fustion. Poppy Lane is the dream-child of two curious souls following their passion for all things simple and beautiful. Their fashions are a great mix of the textiles of traditional Indian wear with the silhouettes of today. They believe that simplicity is truly the ultimate form of sophistication, they have set out to redefine South Asian style on their own terms. They hand-pick every piece of fabric, trim and thread that goes into their collections. And it shows as their pieces embody minimalism at its finest, opening you up to a playground of reinvention, experimentation and creativity.
Sometimes beauty in simplicity is the best and below are some of our favorite pieces that they offer.

The Knot Magazine celebrates each year with an annual Gala. This year the Knot Magazine celebrated their annual gala at the New York Public Library at the close of Bridal Fashion Week. Wedding planner Emily Clarke of Emily Clarke Events coordinated and executed the event with the theme Met by Moonlight, which was as enchanting as it was mystical.
“I took a lot of inspiration from A Midsummer Night’s Dream set design and the soft aesthetic they achieved with a moody and dark setting,” Clarke tells us. “In my head, the gala theme has always been ‘If Shakespeare Was a Millennial.’ I wanted to take a traditional theme and turn it on its head and add playful, unexpected elements for a more modern twist. It started with brainstorming in color. I’ve been really inspired recently to work with unexpected colors and to explore contrast. For The Knot Gala, I was envisioning dark to light and the juxposition of the two together.”

Being of different faiths Diya and Sameer had two ceremonies the same day. The first of their ceremonies was to honor the Hindu side of the family which was held overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The mandap that they got married under was covered in soft pink and white flowers decorated by florist Organic Elements. I am loving the soft colors that many brides are leaning towards for their wedding colors. It creates such a romantic tone for their wedding ceremony.
The second of their ceremonies was to honor the Sikh side of the family and was held indoors adjacent to their Hindu ceremony. One of my favorite moments from their Sikh ceremony was when Diya’s brother and cousins walked her around the ceremony site. It was really sweet to see the care that they had when walking with Diya and Sameer.
