Contact your wedding planner to help you build an app that your guests will be talking about and trying to copy for years to come!

This Bride Had Her Love Story Embroidered On Her Wedding Lehenga…and we love it!

Kresha Bajaj, the young designer behind the label Koëcsh, married Vanraj Zaveri earlier this year at Udaipur’s Leela Palace.

Kresha knew she wouldn’t wear her wedding lehenga again but wanted to use it in some form or another. Inspiration struck when she remembered how a newlywed in an episode of The Real Housewives had gotten her wedding dress framed and put up in her house like artwork! But what should she have on her lehenga that not just looked like art, but was meaningful enough to be framed? Her love story with Vanraj Of course!

It took months to make the lehenga. The bride and groom’s names were embroidered onto it to form a chevron pattern, as were important moments of their life together—from dating milestones to the proposal, and a hem of jumping dolphins that signified the place where everything began for them.

The venue for the big day, The Leela Palace Udaipur was part of the embroidery as well!

Beautiful Guiseppe heels were the perfect fit for the beautifully embroidered Lehenga.

The Happy Couple!

‘Creativity really does blossom where the heart is free we must say!’. Here is wishing Kresha and Vanraj the best that life has to offer in their journey together.

Every to-be bride wants to look the best on her D-day in her wedding lehenga. And so these pretty damsels browse the internet, check out each and every place that they possibly can and then arrive at a decision 🙂

But this has not been the case with Kiah.What is so special about her Lehenga?

She chose it over FACETIME. Yes, you read that right! Moreover, she didn’t even try it once (obviously!). This has to be the rarest of rare cases where the bride is doing the most important shopping of her life through video chat? Well, we still can’t believe it, but this is how she did it!

Actually, Kiah was in New Zealand when she did her bridal lehenga shopping. And the one and only time she tried it was before the big day.

Thankfully, her lehenga turned out to be super-amazing and she looked like a princess in it.

Kiah walked down the aisle with her love Ron and their wedding was truly mesmerizing and was beautifully captured by Design Aqua Studio.

This is the very lehenga, which Kiah chose over FaceTime. Kiah always wanted to don something in pastels for her wedding.

So, she opted for a pastel pink coloured lehenga with beautiful golden work on it by Aashna Behl. She just looked as natural as any Indian bride can manage to.

It was her mother who played the significant role in choosing this stunning bridal outfit as she was the one who FaceTimed with her to shop this in Delhi while Kiah was in New Zealand. Kiah teamed up her look with beautiful Kundan jewelry by Bishan Singh Jewellers in Chandni Chowk. The beautiful bride completed her look with minimal makeup from Chandni Singh Makeup Artist.

Well, it’s really a brave step for any bride to choose her lehenga over FaceTime without even trying it once, but Kiah, it worked for you and we wish you all the very best for the future 🙂

This Gujarat businessman is changing India, one year at a time!

Remember Gopal Vastapara ? I doubt it, considering all the horrible stuff we hear that is going on around the world, very rarely are the good things in the world remembered.

Let’s refresh our memory, Gopal Vastapara got his son and his daughters married last year. You are probably thinking ( Is this guy for real, what is so great about that)… read on to find out!

Gopal Vastapara is a businessman from Surat in Gujarat who is blessed enough to enjoy the best life can offer but when he decided to get his son married, he decided he still had not achieved everything.

Pursuing his keen drive for philanthropy he decided to organize a small sombre ceremony for his sons wedding inviting only close friends and family and decided to spend a large part of the money on organising a lavish mass wedding ceremony for a 100 girls, all who came of economically  backward families and who he christened as his daughters.

The girls were married on April 28 at a function in Chamardi village located in Amreli district of Gujarat.

The humble Mr.Vastapara said,”“We decided to get our son married in a very simple function and instead use the money to help 100 girls from poor families by arranging their marriages. Our motto is Sarva Dharam, Sarva Samaj (All religion, all communities). The girls who will get married are from various castes and include six Muslims too,”

Not only did the girls have the liberty to invite whoever they wanted, but Mr.Vastarpara also provided each happily married couple with all household essentials required by them to start their new life together.

The massive ceremony saw 60,000 people attending and all of the Rs 3 Crores were paid by Mr.Vastapara.

If that wasn’t enough, all Mr.Vastapara asked for in return was that each couple pledge to save a girl child and save the environment.

In a society where infanticide and dowry still blatantly exist, Mr.Vastarpara stood as a shining light to show that love for humanity should come from within.

Now the best part, Last year was just the beginning. Mr.Vastapara has pledged, that he will be sponsoring such mass marriage ceremonies for at least 10 more years if not more!

Take a bow Mr.Vastapara, we hope you keep inspiring!

5 Drinking games for the unconventional bridal shower!

Planning a crazy bridal shower for someone you love, but can’t figure what games to have? Well look no further, we snooped around to figure what others are doing to help you plan the perfect bridal shower for your sweet!

Check them out:

Read His Mind

Before the couple become one, let’s find out how well she knows him! A week or two before the shower, ask the groom twenty revealing questions about himself! Questions can be saucy and/or sickly romantic: “If you could burn one thing in your groom-to-be’s closet, what would it be,” is just one example.

At the shower, ask the bride to guess the answer to each question. Then, play his videotaped response. Each time the bride gets it wrong, the bride takes a shot, the more questions she gets wrong, the more sloshed she gets!

Two Truths and a Lie

This is a great icebreaker for guests who are just getting to know each other. Each guest tells the group three experiences she has had with the bride or groom; two are true, one is a lie.

Guests then guess which one they think is a lie, the person who guesses wrong takes a shot 😀

First Kiss Bridal Shower Game

From butterfly kisses to full-on tongue kissing action, everyone has a great ‘first kiss’ story to tell! Starting with the bride, ask each guest to tell her first kiss story.

At the end, your guests vote on the funniest or most romantic story. A great twist is to have everyone tell two stories: one about their best kiss and another about their worst kiss. Each person takes a shot when they tell their worse story, the bride takes a shot for every great one!

Rib it on!

One of the best games is also a great ice-breaker and involves nothing but a piece of string. As your guests arrive, give them the ball of ribbon and scissors and instruct them to cut off as much as they think they want—and remain quiet when they ask, “Need for what?”

As the night progresses and everyone is nice and drunk — get everyone together and compare the length of each person’s ribbon ( you all know what this represents ladies!), starting with the shortest, each person drinks!

Tighty Whities!

Tighty whities have never looked this good! Ask everyone to write notes to the groom on a pair of men’s underwear. You can choose a theme like “dirty advice” or “sweet best wishes” or leave it up to your guests. Then, make the bride wear the tighty whities for the rest of the party.  As each message is read the person whose message it takes a shot with the bride!
