The best resource for a bride is another bride. They are on a budget, know where to shop, and can identify with the roller coaster of emotions you are riding. Given the unique perspective of planning a desi wedding, it helps to get the input of a bride who is planning one too. So that's why I like to read blogs by brides-to-be. Here are some of my favourites:
The Asian Wedding Editor's Guide:
A former editor at Asiana Weddings Magazine, Poorna has the inside scoop on the industry, but her keen sense of humor and real-world wedding keep her blog from being a long, sappy advertisement. If you are in the UK, she always has the heads up on a great deal.
The Little Brown Bride:
I've never met her, but i'm pretty sure that LBB is adorable. I rarely ever read a full post if it's more than four paragraphs, but LBB is entertaining enough to keep me hooked through the entire post. She describes everything in detail and gives you a pretty good idea as to what to expect when you go for your own shopping trips. One of my fave posts is on the invitation designing process, to read it, click here.
Big Fat Indian Wedding:
Planning a reception in India? Kanika is your girl, this blog, chronicles her experience planning her wedding and getting married. It was actually through her blog that I first discovered photographer Amna Hakim, via this post.
