Late on valentines day eve after a round (or two) of dirty martinis and a tummy full of bread pudding, my boyfriend took me for a drive and handed me the most gorgeous diamond ring I’ve ever seen. Shocked, overwhelmed, and blissfully filled with love, I said yes.
Fast-forward three months and here I am planning a BIG fat Indian wedding. Let me elaborate:
Big: Two weddings, multiple events, and countless guests spanning over a four month period
Fat: One with 700-800 guests, another with around 300 guests. (!?!?)
Indian: He’s FTML (from the motherland). Therefore one wedding will be in India, one will be in San Francisco.
Clearly I am beyond excited but also a bit anxious. Most of all I am pretty stoked that I found a guy who can:
a. put up with me
b. likes to eat as much as I do
c. gets along like gin and tonic with my INSANE family
d. loves me just the way I am, not fatter, not skinnier, not smarter, not stupider. (or so he claims ...)
Always a sucker for all things beautiful, I've been scouring the web for inspiration from everything Indian, eye-catching, whimsical, and me. Whether it's a gorgeous sari, a unique centerpiece, or just a random breathtaking image, some things so enchanting that they just beg to be shared. That's why I've created this space to share them with everyone I love.
