I’m back from my 36 hour Atlanta adventure. I was there for a traditional Indian / Hindu wedding of a dear friend. I was SO EXCITED to go to this wedding because I’ve never been to an Indian wedding. And, it lived up to all my expectations!
We should probably discuss the fact that I am going to be wearing a sari whenever feasible for the forseeable future. I just wanted to grab fabric and start running! They are stunning.
The ceremony started at 7:30 on Friday morning and took place at a Hindu temple in Atlanta.
We had to take our shoes off. I planned ahead and got a pedicure :) But, I did scramble to scratch off my Payless Shoe Source price tag from the sole…
She was kind of enough to loan me a traditional garment (I know it’s not a sari, but I don’t recall the name).
Do you look Bhoomhika’s sari? It was such a pleasure watching her mom help her dress.
The ceremony was beautiful, spiritual and I was absolutely engrossed.
And the bride… the bride took my breath away
Can we talk about how cool her entrance was? She was carried in a basket by her uncles.
Later that night was the reception
Unfortunately, I don’t have a good photo of me in the yellow vintage ensemble which I wore to the reception.
But, it was a fun wear and I can’t wait to break it out again. Oh, and you can be sure I will be wearing a bindi whenever and wherever I can.
So, I’m back home and it’s C-O-L-D. Brrrrrr. I’m starting to think my red trench is not as bad as I thought. And, I may sew up the already cut warmer to get a bit more wear out of it. Thanks for all the feedback :) It’s definitely growing on me.
