In the beginning of December we were invited to a wedding in Jaipur. This Indian city is like a dream itself and to attend a wedding there would be like to find oneself in a fairy-tale. I especially want to see a groom arriving to the bride's house on an elephant. The invitation, actually four of them for each day of the four-day-long celebration, is one of the most beautiful I've ever received.
Alas, have to disappoint you...we didn't manage to go to Jaipur. I hope there will be another chance for me. Instead we attended an Indian wedding party here in Kathmandu. And so, I invite you to join the event along with me. What to expect at an Indian wedding party? First of all, as at any wedding, bride and groom are the centre of everybody's attention. They sit separately from other guests, at the specially decorated place.
You may be dazzled by all the spark that the bride's wearing. But isn't it what all brides want: to be the most beautiful, the most attractive, the most dazzling woman at the event.
The necklace is just stunning. Love her large ring too.
"I bet I've got more likes than you sweetheart"
Saris' pallu (the loose end) details - what an exquisite embroidery
Such beautiful outfits require no less beautiful accessories. And that is the next thing that you can expect to see at an Indian wedding: magnificent, stunning, sometimes overpowering jewelry. Indian women prefer large massive earrings and "statement" necklaces.
I liked this woman's necklace, quite untypical
What a piece of art this brooch is!
And of course, no Indian wedding without lots and lots of delicious food offered to the guests: snacks, salads, traditional Indian and modern Continental, fruits, desserts.
I love Indian weddings!
Have a nice day!
