I sometimes joke that there is not enough life for me to try on all the clothes I love. After scanning through Asiana Wedding's online version via Asiana.tv, I am no longer joking when I say that. I Am One. Hundred. Percent. Serious.
Screenshot from the new online version of Asiana Wedding Magazine. I think the male model on the
right page is the same guy they've been using for about 7 years since he won Asian Bachelor of the year.
Also, that gorgeous dress which is causing me some serious envy attacks is from Mona Vora.
Asiana Magazine is off the chain, and since I haven't been England for a while (sniffle), and cannot be asked to pay the 25 dollar postage, I haven't looked at it in a while. I had forgotten how instrumental this magazine has been to my inspirational drive. Every page is full of fashion goodness and out of the box ideas on design and style. While the rest of the new Asiana site is still in beta, they have uploaded the magazines for your perusal. I really recommend that you take the 2 minutes to answer the uncomfortably nosey questions (they are trying to identify their demographic, but still, it made me uncomfortable to have to tell them my birthdate and home city) in order to get access to this content.
If you are jaded with what you are seeing online, this magazine will quickly change your perception of South Asian fashion and what you could wear on your wedding day. It's not nearly the same as having the magazine, since the picture is annoyingly small, and zooming in means you can't see the whole page at once, but it's better than not getting to see it at all, and I am tempted to pay the postage to get the magazine in my hands now. A reader once asked me to scan a few pages to show the magazine's style, and unfortunately I had to refrain because of copyright. Hopefully, dear reader, you are seeing this now and are able to head over to Asiana.tv to see the magazine for yourself.
Blog Lovin - My Dulhan Diaries
My Dulhan Diary is the story of an NY desi bride journaling her way to the Mandap. I love the catalogue of ideas and inspiration to be found here. My fave posts are: her collection of desi bridesmaid pics, an idea i've been toying around with, but have never gotten around to writing and this collection of tanishq jewellery snaps by Sharon Nayak.
