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 Shadow Box Wedding Invite | Shonan & Adesh

A Shadowbox Wedding Invite Shonan & Adesh | thedelhibride Indian weddings blog

I was in Mumbai this December for a wedding, when I visited a family friend of mine at her Peddar Road home. As the evening sun spilled through the glass windows and made its way across the marble tiles, we sat down with tea and home made chocolates for a long overdue catch up session. A beautiful box on the dining table caught my eye, and as I picked it up I realised it was an invite to the wedding of an old classmate of mine. While I have lost touch with most of my junior school friends, I never lose a chance to hear an update about their current whereabouts and new lives. There’s something special about an old classmate, isn’t there? You might barely know each other anymore, but you’ll always remember them fondly. Nostalgia and rose-tinted glasses walk hand in hand it seems.

Inspiration: A Kitsch Wedding Card!

Have you ever seen an Indian wedding card like this?

Those of you who follow me on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram will know that I attended a wedding last week. It was the wedding of a very special friend of mine – Vidhi. I’ve known her since my college days, and she’s one of the sweetest, most genuine people I’ve ever met. When I entered my first year of college, I also began my stay in a hostel for the first time in my life. Vidhi was 2 years my senior, and she’s solely responsible for making me feel comfortable and helping me adjust to hostel life. She gave me all the insider’s tips I needed to survive there, and was always there when I needed a helping hand. I remember her room very clearly – it was the only room in the whole hostel that felt like home to me. She’d done it up so well – colourful & pretty – it exuded warmth, just the way Vidhi did. She’s a burst of sunshine in any room she walks into, one of those happy people who make your day happy just by spending a few minutes with them! When she told me she was getting married, I couldn’t wait to see what her wedding had in store!

The first thing that landed in my inbox was the Save The Date and a link to her wedding website. It was so fun and different, I loved it! Soon after, I saw her wedding card – and it was hands-down the most unique card I’d ever seen. Continue reading “Inspiration: A Kitsch Wedding Card!”
