When you’re the bride, you want the best.
The best wedding venue, the best bridal beauty kit, the best wedding lehenga, and…the best groom! 😉
While we’re always trying to put together the best posts for you (see what I did there?), there are some other experts out there we want to point you to today – Vogue magazine and Ramit Batra (one of the best wedding photographers in India). Both have published exciting posts just this morning, and they’re too good to not share with brides!
This is post #4 in the series. Read the series from the beginning starting here.
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.

We recently featured a wedding planning company whose work we absolutely adore – The Wedding Design Company (WDC)! Have you seen the pictures of weddings they’ve done?
We roped in the extremely talented team at WDC to do a series of Ask The Wedding Planner posts with us. You ask all your wedding-related questions, and we get the experts to answer the top queries! Beginning…RIGHT NOW!
Today’s question is about Destination Weddings, so if you’re planning on having one, you probably want to read on. Continue reading
Firstly, I’d like to apologise for not putting up the honeymoon and wedding checlist as I’d promised. The weekend was jam packed with wedding stuff, and I just could not find the time to do this.
Anyway, here’s what I covered this weekend –
Went to a shop called Utsav at Krishi Vihar (near Chirag Dilli) and bought one suit ka kapda. Also bought a dupatta that I will get made into a kurti. Gave the suit ka kapda to a tailor who sits right next to the shop in Krishi Vihar. If he does a good job, I’ll probably give him all my suits to stitch because his pricing was really reasonable. Then headed off to Frontier Raas in South Extension to look for Sangeet lehenga. Didn’t find anything light enough to wear on sangeet, plus it was too expensive for a simple sangeet lehenga that I was looking for so probably going to get it stitched by a designer I know. I’m meeting her next Sunday so let’s see how it goes.
Guest List Sunday
Finally counted a realistic number of people expected at the wedding. The number is extremely large, but thankfully the farmhouse is large enough to accomodate everyone, in case everyone shows up. Also made my parents count number of people invited to Sangeet and number was exceeding capacity of our venue! Considering doing the sangeet at same venue as wedding now. The farmhouse was anyway booked for both days, just to be on the safe side. Phew! So we have a choice now, and I think we’re probably going for the farmhouse.
I’m considering adding another Page to the blog, will put it up as soon as it’s done. And Wedding Workout is going well – have been putting in some workout time every alternate day – so far, so good!
