Reader Query: Meet the Parents

The first baby step towards the big event is when you "Meet the parents". It is the first impression on a family that is going to be your family for the rest of your life. Of course you will be nervous coz you will be scanned from head-to-toe. I'm not going to make this a generic post by asking you to be yourself. I hope that is what you know already. Let's get into the specifics.

DIY: Budget Saree

Wonder what happened to all the shopping I did during my frequent visits to the Mangaldas market a few months ago? It was all for these beautiful hand picked sarees that I wanted to make. I made these sarees for my sister-in-laws as a Diwali gift to add a personal touch. They absolutely loved them.

Corallista's Indian Bridal Makeup Tutorials

Ankita is a Beauty Blogger (Corallista.com) who recently got married. She did a series of Indian Bridal Makeup tutorials which I feel young bride-to-be's must watch even if you're not planning to do it yourself. 

I have been watching her videos over-n-over again for quite some time. Now, I may not use half the products she uses but I learnt to select colour combinations and polished my make up application techniques. I must say (based on the recent compliments) that I am making extraordinary progress. I did my own makeup on all days at a friends wedding this December.

My Wedding Photobook: Part 2 Yellow saree OOTD

The Guy: "Mom, Aditi is wearing a green saree!!!" (read: NOT the yellow one for which she made us run into so many stores. In reality, we only went to 3 stores in one day and I bought this)
His Mom: WHAT!! How can she wear a green saree? It's not allowed!
When I saw the guy at the reception, I jokingly told him that I changed my mind about wearing a yellow saree. The nervous bride in me was trying to be funny. Wrong timing. The even more nervous groom took it seriously and told his mom about it! His mom is the super coolest maharashtrian mom I have come across so far. Even she was not ok with me not wearing yellow during the pheras. So basically, the yellow saree is a big deal in our weddings!
