Is your wedding not what YOU wanted? (VIDEO)

Ok so this happens a LOT,
You want a pink backdrop at your wedding the guy says its too girly.
You want a candid photographer your dad says its too expensive.
You tell your mom to let you buy suits from Fab India  for your trousseau she says Kanjeevaram.

So the wedding all in all doesn't really turn out the way you had envisioned it, now I know it wasn't the boys fault that Europe is deep in snow during December, but hey I was ok with a late honeymoon! But nah that didn't happen :/ I had to 'settle' with South Africa, not that I am complaining it was the best honeymoon I could have ever asked for, but lets just say it wasn't part of my dream.

But I kind of realized in the end that it is ok to let other people come and make little changes in your dream plans, if I had stuck to say Europe I would have never discovered the wonders of South Africa, and truth be told it was my first choice as well but I never told the boy thinking he will think I am mad, I mean its not really 'romantic' is it.

We are getting a little off topic here, I was talking to my friend the other day and she is getting married soon and going through something similar, she is so frustrated that the wedding isn't the one she imagined, So here is a little advice I gave to her :

Dhoti Saree : What are your views?

I have a mixed view on Dhoti Saree, I love them and Hate them at the same time.
 Well mainly I hate them because I think a heavier frame girl, like me, won't really look all that good in them, after all it does highlight the thighs and your figure, and I would rather stick to a drape that hides more than it shows!

What are your views on them?

I really like Sonam Kapoor's Saree look, this would defiantly work for your best friends wedding.

I think the Dhoti Saree would also look really chic for Mehendi or cocktail, 
giving you a Modern-traditional Look.

By the way I found this awesome YouTuber (Makeup Guru) named Kaushal, and her makeup videos are to die for! Nobody is sponsoring me to do this, and that girl doesn't know either but I absolutely love her style! Check her out here :

Speaking of Youtube, the first Crazy Indian Wedding vlog is going to be out this Wednesday! Make sure you are subscribed here :

The Photographer you NEED at your wedding! Meet Morvi!

What got you interested in Photography?

If I remember correctly, it all happened rather early. Dad got a Kodak point and shoot camera home back in the 1980s. And I guess that was just the beginning. The progression to make Photography an important part of my life happened naturally. I would sit in the library and stare at images for hours. They don’t have to be relevant. Just about any imagery is enough to activate my brain cells. I don’t think in works I think visuals.

What is your favorite moment in a wedding?

Seeing the look on the groom’s face when a bride first walks in her untouched grandeur for the first time is priceless.

Which is one picture that every girl must have on her wedding day?

For every father, his daughter is his princess and for a bride her father is the first man she ever fell in love with the man whom she would secretly compare every other man with. No wedding is complete without pictures highlighting this beautiful bond.

If a girl doesn't really have a budget for a candid photographer or the parents insist on a traditional 'studio' guy, what suggestion would you give.

Knots and Hearts : The Wedding Planners YOU Need!

When I hear of Wedding Planners I always end up thinking of this creative group of people who sit together and decide a theme for your wedding and just take over everything, and they are basically just business people who take everything in a work-mode way, but then I read about Shyam and Kalash and I just really liked the fact that they just don't want to 'plan' a wedding they want you to experience it, and the best thing is that they understand that a wedding although centered towards the Bride and Groom is still a Family affair!

Two finance postgraduates, Shyam and Kalash met and love happened. What followed was a start of a beautiful love story which is still being written everyday.

With this knot that tied both their hearts together came the desire to share this happiness with every couple who wanted to make their wedding journey special. Hence was born Knots and hearts! Knots and Hearts, is geared up to make each day of your wedding a different experience. 

They believe that, wedding is special and has to be memorable not just for you but for your whole family. 
(and I totally agree on this!)

The end- to - end solutions for your entire wedding include venue, decor, entertainment, wedding trousseau, guest management to your honeymoon destination.

 A team of experts from various fields including wedding stylists, makeup artists, fashion designers, jewelers, choreographers, wedding photographers and video experts to name a few...that fit into every budget, work with them to realize the bride/groom vision. (Sounds good, doesn't it?!)

Now I know Budget can be tricky and I always thought that Wedding planners work only with high budget weddings (after all, having no money constrain has its positives! ) So I went ahead and asked them what their thoughts are on this :

As we have always said that weddings have the emotional ingredient in them, thus planning each wedding involves a lot of detailing. Whether it is a 10 lakh wedding or a crore wedding, we ensure that the creativity and exclusivity is always at the high.
Coming to the budget on weddings,

Crazy Indian Wedding YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

Hey Lovelies!!

First of all a very Happy Karva Chauth to you! Some of you might already know that I have been on YouTube since the beginning of this year, although those video's had a more comic feel to it, I am now launching the official 


Its one of a kind! The first Indian Wedding Vlog dedicated specially to the Bride-to-be! 
I am so super excited about it :) 


What is it about ?
Well its basically an extension to the blog, there are things that can't be explained in words and I would rather show them to you!

So far here is my plan (Let me know incase you want to add something to it) :

Remember how I spoke about a need for bridal helpline a week back, well here is my little way to help!
This section would contain Random talks about things that might be bothering you, during the wedding prep or as a new bride.

Things like : What to do when the wedding isn't turning out to be what you expected OR How to adjust into a new family OR just random questions that a lot of you ask me on the blog, twitter, email,etc.

I know I am not an expert and I won't pretend to be either, but will defiantly try to help you out as a friend!

What you defiantly need and what you can live without! As a Bride-to-be you would be buying a LOT of makeup but in my experience you don't really need that much! So this is me just sharing with you what worked out for me!

Ok so I am married and I would definitely not be buying for my own wedding, but I do have a lot of close family weddings coming up, plus as a Newly Wed (2years in Nov.) I defiantly still get a lot of Indian stuff ! So I will share those hauls with you guys!

I love to wear a Saree (!) and finding out new ways to wear them is also one of my pass times, again I am no expert but would love to share with you what I know :)

There are a LOT of topics I know absolutely NOTHING about and I would probably be getting an expert in to teach us stuff!
(PS: If you are an expert at something and would love to be part of this section contact me on

Well I was a dummy before but these 2years of marriage have made me a little better at makeup, I will be sharing with you the tips and tricks that I know :)

We have talked a lot about the benefits of home remedies, about how good uptan is for the skin and how cucumber gives you a glow, well its time I showed it to you!

Well that's whats planned so far, 
if you have any suggestions, any quires make sure to comment them down below!

What you should gift your Mother-in-Law on Karva Chauth?!


Its my 2nd Karva Chauth this year and my first in my Sasural! I spent my first Karva Chauth in my Maika like any newly wedded girl. So incase you didn't know already, if its your first Karva Chauth you get to go home! :D

Last year I wrote about what you should wear on Karva Chauth (specially if its your first!) read this to get reminded :

In fact I think after pooja, even this year I will wear my wedding lehenga :D or I might stick to a new saree, not sure yet because I do get to wear my wedding lehenga later this year for my brother's wedding, so I might just wear my Vidai wali saree or Phero wali saree, which are still technically my wedding attire. (Never seen my wedding pictures ?! See this : )

Anyways, last year my mother took care of everything and I didn't have to worry about anything at all, but since this year I am kind of taking a lead I have to buy things for my mother-in-law for Karva Chauth, I thought it was only a Saree that I had to gift her, but apparently not!

Anyways here is a list of things that you have to Traditionally gift your Mother-In-Law on Karva Chaut :
(Pohi/Sargi/Baya from Bahu to Saas)

1. Saree/ Suit : whatever your Mother-in-law prefers

A little chat with Lumos Films!

When I first heard of Lumos Films I was in love already, after all anybody who names their company after a Harry Potter Spell enters my list of favorite people!

I jumped onto their website and when I read 

" We capture the conversations you didn’t know we were recording, the flowers you had carefully picked but didn’t notice that day, your mother looking at you as you looked at each other.  We make a fim that reminds you of how it felt when you married him. Or her"

I read this and I was like "These girls KNOW a wedding", because yes you do pick out the flowers at your wedding and nobody really notices them, infact I completely forgot how much I agonized about which flower I wanted and completely forgot about them as the year passed!

Maybe that is an advantage of having an all girls team, they understand the fine workings of a Bride-to-be's mind ;) So I went ahead and we had a little chat :

1. I see that you have an amazing team, How did you guys come together ?

We have complimentary skills when it comes to film making and our wavelengths match. We'd already been making films on a variety of subjects before we decided to give our first wedding film a shot. There has been no looking back ever since!

2. What are each members favorite wedding moments!?

Shagun: I love seeing the reaction of the couple when they view the final wedding film.

Adhira: I like the baraat, because its full of energy and fun!

Namrata: I love the part where the panditji reads out the wedding vows. They are pretty hilarious, and he usually adds funny jokes that has everyone cracking up!       

Tanya: My favourite wedding moments are the short bytes that we take of the closest friends and family members and the quirky secretive insights of the couple that they share with us. 


3. A lot of brides feel their wedding won't be 'fun' enough to be captured as an epic video, sometimes parents just say no to things like a photo booth or the bride not acting like a 'bride', and prefer the things to remain traditional. Have you faced such as issue?

Usually the couple getting married are enthusiastic about, and take a call on hiring a service like ours. Some parents take time in warming up to the concept of creative wedding films as its relatively new, though most are happy to go ahead with what their daughters/ sons want. 

All weddings, whether traditional or non-traditional, offer a wide range of emotions. A memorable film is one that reflects all these emotions, ranging from exhilaration to intimate bittersweet moments.
