Our next bride envisioned her wedding as a cross cultural celebration tied in with an adorable chic backyard setting. Using a color pallet of coral, mint and gold this wedding blends traditional and Hindu customs seamlessly.

Mix n' Match Bridesmaid dresses

The bridesmaids all picked their own white dress and neutral shoes. I wanted an eclectic mix and to incorporate white dresses into the day since I was not wearing one!

Hints of Hindu

I wanted an outdoor ceremony and dinner with Hindu touches throughout- the Mandap, Ganesh figurine, gold elephants. We loved the idea of long tables and a family style dinner to encourage our guests to mingle. Our colors were mint, coral and gold.

Ceremony Traditions

The ceremony started with a prayer to Ganesh, who presides over new beginnings in Hinduism. We also had a few Hindu traditions incorporated into our ceremony including garland exchanges, tying of a knot between our scarves, and seven steps around a ceremonial fire (candles in this case).

Advice from the Bride

Once the wedding weekend arrives, don't sweat the small stuff. Be flexible if you are thrown any curve balls- it will be the best day of your life. It goes by quickly, so enjoy every moment.
