With just a few months to go for the Indian wedding season, brides-to-be are gearing up for D-day. The run-up to the wedding day requires immense physical, mental and emotional endurance amongst many other things. While the hectic schedule can often lead to brides feeling weighed down, brides must prepare themselves before the big day kicks in. To help make the process easier, India’s leading bridal stylist, Ekta Shah is introducing the first-ever bridal retreat, Here Comes The Bride.

Lead by India’s leading bridal stylist, Ekta Shah, founder of HOUSE OF EEKKTA with a capacity capped at 50 brides, the retreat will take place in Rajasthan, and include brides from different walks of life, cultures, and traditions. Such a retreat not only helps to connect with a variety of people but also ties together the bridal community with a singular chain of thought and unity of the process every bride goes through.
Elaborating on her vision behind this one-of-a-kind bridal retreat, Ekta shares, “Here Comes The Bride is a passion project born out of my own experience from when I was embarking on my bridal journey but didn’t have enough resources and guidance to head into this life-changing phase with mindfulness. And so, the idea of building a space where modern brides could come together, learn and celebrate the exhilarating moments leading up to their big day was born. We’ve designed this getaway for brides to express, elevate and empower themselves and one another with the right tools, knowledge, and inspiration to make their wedding dreams a reality. This is an all-inclusive program, finely crafted to help brides embark on a fulfilling bridal journey as well as navigate their newly married life with ease.”
