Someone once told me that everything you need to know or understand about marriage is performed during an Indian wedding ceremony. I find this to be true in so many ways. Yes, I'm a bit of a romantic, but the beauty of the culture inspires me every day and every moment of my life. I love to surround myself with weddings. This passion is the driving force of this magazine.
We are so proud the announce the 2nd annual issue of our magazine, entitled, "Under the Influence." A collective of real-world Indian weddings, Instagramers who influence and shape the industry and the latest from fashion designer, Anita Dongre. Lastly, we are humbled at the opportunity to collaborate with ifluencer, Diipa Khosla for Mac cosmetics.
We will continue to work hard to inspire brides to be, showcasing the talented people who make the industry what it is today. We have so many ideas on how we can build a stronger community and know the possibilities are endless.
All of our love to those who support us and are a part of our ever-growing tribe.
Inside the pages of this issue are real weddings from all parts of the world. From a destination wedding in Mexico to a same-sex marriage in the city of New York. Weddings are now all about who the couple is and reflecting their personalities into their ceremony and wedding decor. Multicultural weddings are also becoming more of the norm with brides and grooms putting their own twists on what they think a wedding should be. Take a dive into the pages of our real weddings section and let the inspiration flow.
What to wear for your wedding is one of the most significant decisions a bride can make. There are so many choices from the traditional red and gold to the modern designs of up and coming designers. We ask some of our favorite Instagram influencers what their style must-haves are and to share their personal insight on what makes them feel and look their best, in our cover story “Under the Influence.”
With the latest collection from designer Anita Dongre, she shares her limited edition Pichhwai collection. We are in love with the soft colors, and beautiful hand embroidered patterns. Pichhwai is more than just art. It is a skill that has been passed down through generations. It is a form of art, which often flows seamlessly between the realms of imagination, skill, and meditation.
