The Best Bridal Entry Songs Updated

I thought the perfect bridal entry song was already out, and I knew exactly what to recommend to girlfriends getting married. But yesterday, The Wedding Filmer released such a beautiful new song, and after listening to it on repeat 25 ok 50 times in 24 hours like an obsessed person driving my husband crazy with it, I realised – it’s time for an update to the list! Yes, it’s a whole LIST of recommendations now. Which is great for brides getting married this year, or the next, or any time after today – basically. They don’t realise how lucky they are! I got married just 2.5 years ago, and all I had was ONE option.

The Ultimate Guide to Making Guests Comfortable at Your Summer Wedding

19 Jun Summer wedding guest ideas to make them comfortable

We’re at the tail end of Summer here in Delhi (or so I hope!) and I can’t wait for the monsoons to get here. Oh, the rains are coming – I know! I saw it, those insane flooded road pictures of Mumbai making their way all over Twitter this morning. Keeping aside all the infrastructure problems they highlight, it made me jealous of everyone who gets to enjoy the rains in Mumbai today.

But since we’re still suffocating in 40+ degree temperatures in Delhi, I thought I’ll finally put together a list of summer wedding ideas I’ve had. Everyone’s done this list on the Internet, but I wanted to do a very specific kind of list – of what to do to make your guests comfortable at your summer wedding.

Guide to Fashion Weeks in India 2014-15 Bridal Edition

And a little bit of Fashion Week 101.

If you are getting married in the next 6 months, and are looking to buy your wedding lehenga and trousseau now, you’re worried. The next set of Fashion Weeks are still 3-4 months away. Where are you supposed to research the latest in bridal fashion, so that you don’t accidentally end up buying a 2 year old style? That is, of course, if you care about that sort of thing.

Google baba?

Unless you have a friend who works at a fashion magazine, you’re going to be one hell of a confused bride trying to find the latest in bridal fashion on those 20 websites you’ve just googled. If you’re not a regular fashion week follower, you’re going to have a hard time keeping all the S/S, S/R, A/W shows from merging into each other and leaving you blurry-eyed.

Well, I am that friend. And that regular fashion week follower :) And I put together a guide to all the freshest fashion from the last 12 months for brides. You’re welcome!

5 Reception Outfits under 50k!

22 Apr Reception lehengas and gowns for under 50k

Well, under ₹46,000 to be precise.

Receptions. An event most of the Indian community still continues to have at weddings, even when the bride and groom are from the same city. I know there’s a small section of you who have started to do away with Receptions as a separate event altogether. Makes sense. You can just combine your wedding ceremony with the Reception. After all, when your pheras are done and you stand on stage to greet your guests as man and wife, having a separate Reception essentially means you’re going to do the same thing all over again. The workings of a combined Wedding+Reception is something I can talk about for an hour, so let’s leave that for another post!

Part 2 Mehendi ethnic traditional and quirky decor by Creative Concepts in Mumbai Shonan & Adesh | thedelhibride Indian weddings blog

20th December, 2014.

The day Shonan and her family had been excitedly anticipating was finally here. And needless to say, it was beyond extra-ordinary.

The bride’s family wanted to run a theme across all three levels of the garden at Madhuli Apartments – traditional Mehendi décor with splashes of vibrant colours, and a dash of quirky – and that is exactly what the decorators gave them.

Embroidered umbrellas, flower rangolis that cascaded down all 3-levels at the staircase, dabbas as centrepieces and candles that were lit once the sun started to set – Nazneen and Taskeen of the decor team had outdone themselves and the bride could hardly believe how picturesque it all looked.
