Best of Vogue Wedding Show 2015

THE Vogue Wedding Show kicked off in Delhi this Friday, and if you’re wondering – was it really worth attending? – the answer’s a resounding yes. Of course, it’s a luxury wedding exhibition, so we expected nothing but the best-in-the business designers and jewellery makers at Taj Palace Hotel.

We spent a whole day at Vogue Wedding Show, and covered every inch of it. Not a single stone unturned. Here are the stalls we loved and our favourite pieces from the show!  Continue reading “Best of Vogue Wedding Show 2015”

Best of Wedding Asia 2015: With Photos!

I have visited a handful of wedding exhibitions in the past, but had always missed out on Wedding Asia for some reason or the other. Not this year, though. Wedding Asia was scheduled into my planner weeks in advance, and I really wanted to go see if there was anything worth visiting for.

And just like all the other wedding exhibitions, Wedding Asia is another great one-stop shop for discovering wedding designers and jewellery makers from all over the country. Heading in at 11 am is always preferable, because most exhibitions start to get really crowded and cramped for space after 2 pm.

This time around, my team and I were not able to go through every single stall, but we still picked out the best of what we did see. These were some of the note-worthy vendors we did come across –

A Mumbai Bride Picks 11 Favourite Stalls | Best of Sutra exhibtion

Namrata is a December 2015 bride, who is tying the knot in Mumbai and having 2 receptions – one in Kolkata and the other in Dehradun! She has a 2 States story – she is from Orissa, and her groom is from Uttarakhand. She lives in Mumbai, he lives in Delhi. Wedding planning is alien territory to her, what with her mainly having spent her life inside the IIT Bombay campus where 90% weddings take place in the campus guest house. From negotiating with wedding vendors to attending exhibitions and exploring lehenga stores, she has taken up the task of planning her budget wedding all by herself and blogs about it at Frugal2Fab. In today’s post, she shares her notes on Sutra by Marriage Mantra, a wedding exhibition she visited yesterday in Mumbai.

I went to Bridal Asia 2014. Here are my notes.

Notes on Bridal Asia 2014

“This is the best wedding exhibition that Delhi has to offer to brides. It’s the only one I showcase my work at.”

– overheard at Bridal Asia 2014

I visited on Monday, when the crowds had thinned and the displays had dwindled. At the entrance, I took out my cell phone and opened the Shopping Guide I’d written a few days earlier. With a guide in one hand, and a media badge in the other – I was ready to explore Bridal Asia and find the best of what it had to offer.

Did my favourite designers have outfits I would love this time around? Who had an entirely new collection? Which ones would disappoint? And which new names would I discover I loved today? Continue reading “I went to Bridal Asia 2014. Here are my notes.”

Bride’s Guide to Trousseau Week 2013: Bangalore

Bride Guide to Trousseau Week Bangalore 2013

I just got back from Bangalore yesterday after an exciting 2-day trip to cover Trousseau Week!

Watching a fashion show live, and discovering new vendors at wedding exhibitions – are two of a wedding blogger’s favourite things. And that’s exactly what I indulged in over the last 2 days!

I went off to Bangalore on Thursday to cover Trousseau Week, which kick-started with a fashion show that very night. Designs by Kimaya, Chola and AS Motiwala were amongst the many on the ramp that night. But more on the show in a later post.

Right now, get ready for your very own personal tour of Trousseau Week!

Why? So you can make the most of your visit there Continue reading “Bride’s Guide to Trousseau Week 2013: Bangalore”
