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.
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.
