Hi brides to be,

Weddings in India are popular all over the world, as they capture one’s heart and soul. The weddings being colourful and magnificent, sure require planning a year ahead. Families come together, the food, the attire, the jewellery, the decor, everything is pure desi.

Lehenga for weddings is like a customary practice in north India. But over the years, migration of North Indians to the South, has allowed us to take a Bite of their wedding style. Girls wish to include even Haldi and mehendi function, which was not a part of south Indian rituals.
