You may just fall off your seat after seeing today’s utterly unique and magical Pakistani Mehndi party. The uber-creative bride Safa was raised in Woodstock, Ontario (“the dairy capital of Canada!”) and had a “Bollywood Barn” vision for her pre-wedding festivities. The amazing Lemon Truffle Designs brought the bride’s vision to life through bright colours, lush fabrics, marigold […]

Just in time for spring, I’m featuring the loveliest Persian wedding inspiration shoot from Washington D.C.’s Audra Wrisley Photography. Iran has a rich and beautiful culture and shares a border with Afghanistan and Pakistan. West Asian wedding customs are quite different from those of South Asia, but the colours and design elements can easily be […]

Hi! How have you been? I’ve been settling back into the blogging game and thought I should update you on one of the biggest wedding trends of 2014. Pantone recently announced that its Colour of the Year is Radiant Orchid. It’s a purple that’s not quite lavender, not quite violet, and seems to look different depending […]

I adore Bangladeshi weddings. The first one I ever attended was that of my best friend, 6 years ago. I remember being amazed at the esthetic similarities to Pakistani and Indian weddings, yet struck by the cultural differences. Bengali weddings are a completely different creature from the affairs we tend to see in Bollywood movies […]

    Kera - Wow I am Bangali and I forgot about lot of these traditions. It is good to have knowledgable people in west to remind us how it is suppose to be done.

    Another big difference is our focus on saree. The mehindi and gaya hould outfits are mostly cotton or jamdani sareeReplyCancel

    Anika - RUBY- where was this information when I was getting married.

    Thank you for sharing the breakdown-with so many inter-mixed marriages happening sometimes we miss some of these really fun + special events. Even when I was going through it, I was quite bewildered at events like the Aye bhuro bhaath and the Firani…but in retrospect, so glad I had those incredibly intimate events- makes you feel like you are leaving the house being a daughter and coming back a bride.

    Hope you share one with Bangladeshi Holud Goyna (floral jewellery). Some of them are works of art in themselves!

    Will be sharing this with my community :)Thank you thank you xoxReplyCancel
