March 03, 2009 10:42 IST

After Ayesha Takia [Images], it is Amrita Arora's [Images] turn to tie the knot. The actress, who's getting married to Shakeel Ladakh, had her sangeet yesterday.

Best friend and bridesmaid Kareena Kapoor [Images] even danced at her sangeet.

We spoke to fashion designer Ashley Rebello to describe Amrita's wedding gown.

"I have designed an off-white vintage wedding gown for Amrita. It gives a very old world charm. It's very beautiful and delicate. The fabric is Umelio Ungaro lace and satin,  with a high neck. It's a body-fitting gown, embellished with diamonds and rice pearls. It leaves a trail behind," he says.

Ashley has also designed the gowns for the four bridesmaids, including Kareena, Malaika Arora [Images] Khan, Salman Khan's [Images] sister Alvira and close friend Mallika.

"The bridesmaids are wearing varied shades of peach," he says. "They have a vintage look as well, with a big flair and a long trail. The gowns made of georgette, and embellished with copper diamonds."
