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!

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.

What am I doing wrong?
Tejasvini came to my rescue, and decided to Continue reading “Makeup 101: How To Apply Foundation – the right way!”
