Some of our favorite love stories are the ones where it actually wasn’t love at first sight. After years of knowing each other as mere acquaintances, a chance meeting on a train turned into a beautiful courtship for Shrina and Beeru. When Shrina told us about how Beerju turned the pretext of creating a time capsule together into a fond memory in itself — a surprise proposal! — we knew this wedding would be as heartwarming as it was beautiful. Shrina stunned in a rich red lehenga, with a natural makeup look (courtesy of our amazing friends at Singhar by Ayesha) that managed to keep the glam quotient high while maintaining an understated elegance.

There is something about the richness of a Bengali wedding that sets it apart from others. Tradition is key for these brides, and the result is a bridal look that is as rich in heritage as it is in glam. And there’s no clearer example of that than with Bengali bridal jewelry — the totally traditional and completely fool-proof contrast of sparkling yellow gold with a deep red sari is a combination you can never go wrong with, even if you’re not being married in a traditional Bengali ceremony.

We’re spotlighting 10 of our favorite pieces of Bengali bridal jewelry inspiration, where bling has never looked better. Continue reading for more!

Farwa and Faraz met six years ago through a mutual family friend. Fast forward to present-day, and the two are happily engaged — with the wedding just around the corner, two months from now, it won’t be too long that the joy of an engagement turns into wedded bliss. One of our favorite parts of chatting with this lovely couple is hearing how excited and thrilled they are to spend the rest of their lives together. To celebrate their engagement, the couple had a romantic photo shoot in New York City, taking advantage of the romantically picturesque corners of Central Park and the city’s waterfront.

Are you all set for Mother’s Day belles? We love the chance to pay tribute to arguably some of the most important women at any wedding celebration — because while all eyes are on the bride, it’s the moms behind the scenes (both on the big day and for years beforehand) who have helped make this special day happen. They’re the ones who gave us shoulders to lean on, wisdom to learn from, and of course, so many blessings.

Indian Wedding Mother's Day

It’s clear that the moms are the true superheroes of any wedding celebration, so today, we’re paying tribute to them — real-life brides are sending their moms messages of love and gratitude. We know we should be thankful for our moms every day, but an extra special day never hurts — continue reading for more!

Roshni and Alain’s wedding ceremony was as heartwarming as it was gorgeous. Surrounded by friends and family, the two were wed in a traditional Hindu ceremony. We’re in LOVE with Roshni’s custom-made Naveda Couture gown, which she helped create in close consultation with the designer for the perfect princess look — and judging from the photos of the “first look,” Alain is also a fan!
