 How many of you have heard the words in the recent times?

” My sister lives in another city and is coming only a day before the wedding.”

“My best friends cannot make it to the wedding or cannot help me with shopping.”

“I have no time to throw a bridal shower for my best friend”

And this one is mine ” I live abroad and I have no clue about the good shops/latest designs/good tailors etc etc etc”

When I posted on our bloggers club about this series Srilakshmi of I am Stri, one of the prominent lifestyle bloggers from Chennai immediately pinged me saying she was a Bridal Assistant. Whaaa..whaat? I had a skype call with her to understand what she does and (ofcourse) why would I let her go just like that . People like Sri are emerging in cities like Chennai and are the need of the hour especially for brides who need help and cannot get it from their dear ones. So here is her guest post from her about her services. Continue Reading

Being an NRI bride one of our biggest tasks is to find the right make up artist for the D-Day. The reason being we are probably going just before the wedding and might not really find the time to have a trial and choose. And so we need to use our judgement to find the right MUA using other sources.

Pavithra, popularly known as Makeup Martini is one of the most well known fashion/ beauty bloggers of Chennai. She is also a professional make up artist and a model. She doesn’t just make her brides look gorgeous but also herself and I personally love the look-books on her blog 🙂 Here is her guide to find the right makeup artist for your big day!

Beat the Hump Day blues!

We all have those days where you just don’t want to read or watch anything that makes your brain work or react to it even a tiny bit right? Especially during the middle of the week.

So I thought of sending something your way that (might) make you smile or take your mind off other things for a few minutes!

I recently visited the San Francisco Zoo and here are some of the pictures from there.

Conquering the Bridal Wardrobe

When I got engaged, Radhika was one of the first ones with whom I spoke to at length , to get ‘reality-of-a-wedding’ advice. I have known her for many years now –  a software engineer, singer and in her own words ‘hyper-organized’. Not only are our wedding venues the same, but we also share similar ideas on weddings.  Continue Reading

Kicking off 2016!

Hello everyone!
I hope everyone had a good start to the New Year 🙂 I am sitting at the airport ready to go back to my routine and start my Monday tomorrow. I celebrated New Year’s eve watching Star Wars with R. He is a huge fan to say the least ;). Something new for me , since I had never watched the series before so I did watch the previous movies before watching the new one. I should say I enjoyed it and I was amazed by how the audience would have reacted to such a movie so advanced for the 1970s.
