For the couple's Bollywood-themed welcome dinner party, Kat paid tribute to her Indian roots by wearing a choli (a midriff-baring top) and a lehenga (a full embroidered, pleated skirt) by Anushree Reddy. "What I'm wearing is called a lehenga. I've actually never worn an Indian outfit before so I'm very excited to wear one for my wedding... It's a two-piece, [the top] comes up very high and the skirt is very low, so I don't think I'll be able to eat that day," she says in jest during an exclusive pre-wedding interview. "But it's beautiful. There's so much beautiful beadwork and I've learned that Indian designers are very intricate and really source their fabric and hand-paint everything."
Complementing her look, Christian went for a bespoke Bollywood-inspired suit with a golden brocade coat and a printed blue waistcoat by Suit It Up Manila, worn with a pair of cream trousers.
Kat's off-white bridal robe with lace details was created for her by Bridal Boutique. Kat asked the same supplier to make blush robes for her bridesmaids as well, and she even had them customized with their names. In the photo above, Kat and her best friend, Cesca Litton, are seen in their custom robes.

"This is my wedding gown," Kat told Metro.Style. "When I saw it, I fell in love with it. I started crying when I saw it on the rack... I didn’t wanna wear white, so they call this a champagne chocolate color, and it fits perfectly." The bride looked radiant in her intricate strapless wedding gown that hugged her curves perfectly. Sexy, classy, and most importantly, easy to walk in, the gown and its fit-and-flare silhouette proved to be a great choice.
Kat's wedding gown is by famous Israeli bridal designer Inbal Dror, who is known for feminine, delicate, intricate, and sultry designs. Inbal Dror was rumored to create Meghan Markle's wedding gown; in the end, the Duchess of Sussex wore a creation by Claire Waight Keller for Givenchy Haute Couture. Celebrities and personalities who have worn Inbal Dror outfits include A-list artist Beyoncé, actress Mili Eshet, actress Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, reporter Natalia Cooper, entertainment correspondent Giuliana Rancic, and model Lisalla Montenegro; beauty mogul Cristalle Belo was also an Inbal Dror bride.
The groom, on the other hand, was in a dapper outfit with a statement green velvet coat by Francis Libiran.

"My dresses are both from Inbal Dror. I’ve loved Inbal Dror since 2008 even before they had a website. I’ve been a huge fan," Kat shared.
Come reception time, the bride changed into a sexier and more delicate outfit by the same designer. The sheer dress features thin straps, a sexy sweetheart neckline, and a thigh-high slit. The detail we specially loved about it? It has pockets!
"The after-party dress, I call it the hubad dress because it doesn’t really cover much, but this was altered by Rosalyn Lagdameo," Kat tells Metro.Style. "I ended up buying this off-the-rack in San Francisco with my sister. They altered it to fit me a bit better."
Kat matched her wedding outfits with a pair of gold ankle-strapped, chunky platform heels by Giuseppe Zanotti.
