It sucked that we didn’t get invited to Manish Malhotra’s show. It was one of the 3 shows that took place off-site at Amazon India Couture Week, and for some reason, off-site = limited media entry. I overheard someone state matter-of-factly that only 30 Media Seats were available. Wow, that’s just great. But what about us bloggers, Manish? I thought our meeting earlier this year meant something to you.
I thought we explained what wedding blogs are to you, and you…you promised you wouldn’t forget! Is this how you repay us?! For the one hundred and eighty five seconds we took out of our busy lives to introduce the concept of wedding blogging to you?! *turns away dramatically*
Well, let bygones be bygones. Maybe next time we meet you’ll have a gift ready for me. You know, to make it up to me? A lehenga maybe. Well, alright alright. Don’t get angsty *rolls her eyes* Even a dupatta will do.
I need to praise your collection now. These brides na, won’t leave me alone even for 2 minutes to speak to MM. They want to see the pictures NOW. Off you go, M. I’ll see you next at the Vogue Wedding Show, darling. *air kiss* *air kiss*

Their spectacular wedding has taken over the blog this week – with photographs by Joseph Radhik lending stunning visuals to what was one of the best weddings of 2014. You’re still wondering – What was the Sangeet like? The Wedding? Shonan & Adesh had a dozen pre-wedding functions, and zooming out to give you a taste of the highlights of the rest seemed the right way to conclude their story. This is the last post in the series.
If you haven’t seen the previous posts, go back to them here – first, second, third, fourth and fifth.
Shonan & Adesh’s wedding was not only spectacular, it was also unique – with their thoughtful families and friends coming together to help them celebrate the best day of their lives with a lot of love, fun & creativity! While I heard all the stories the bride and the people involved in organising the wedding were telling me, I started to notice how certain details stood out. Things I’ll never forget – whether it was the awe-struck feeling of seeing an image for the first time, or the realisation of how beauty shines through small acts made out of love. These are 10 of those precious moments, that made their wedding truly unforgettable. Learn a little, appreciate the rest, and be inspired.

Updated with my video of shopping in Chandni Chowk at some of the best stores in 2019! 🙂
The first and only time I went to Chandni Chowk was with a bunch of my guy friends to eat at Karim’s. It was hands down the best meat I’ve ever had, by the way. Melted in the mouth! Yum. Anyway, I remember walking around with my 5-6 guy friends surrounding me from all sides, so I felt quite safe and didn’t have to bother with anything.
This Saturday, my mother wanted to go to CC with me. It was just going to be the two of us. Honestly, I was not very comfortable with the idea – since I have this wonky image of Chandni Chowk and all it’s shady men. My mother rubbished my concerns, and said we’re going just by ourselves. No bodyguards, mother? Are you sure? “Stop acting like a 5-year-old” is all I got in return.
Now, I know this is Continue reading “Where to shop for Wedding Lehengas at Chandni Chowk?”
I needed to make a trip to South Extension market on Saturday morning, before heading off to Chandni Chowk. So I went to Ushnaq Mal first, since my parents thought they had good wedding lehengas. Most of it was too much chamki (in-your-face-shiny) that not only looks fugly but also photographs terribly. But, there was … Continue reading Looking for my wedding lehenga at South Extension

I’m narrowing down what I like, will be going to Chandni Chowk this weekend to check out some out. Till date, I have seen lehengas at – Kapil & Mmonika, Lajpat … Continue reading Wedding Lehenga Shopping Begins!
