The New Indian Bride

A bride-to-be with a new perspective on the modern Indian wedding.

I write notes to loved ones. I write in a journal.  Now, I am writing this blog.  The easiest way for me to express how I feel is to write it down.  

Which is why I invited my guests with a personal hand written note.  I wanted each person to know how much they mean to me and how honored I am to have them as part of our wedding. 

What inspired me to go down this path?  My sister’s friend, Nadia.  For her intimate wedding in the South of France (sounds fabulous, right?), she hand wrote invitations to each and every guest using a beautiful pen and the prettiest stationary one could lay eyes on.  A simple, touching, hand written note.  Exactly the kind of thing this New Indian Bride endorses.

Such simplicity is easy to achieve for a wedding with 20 guests, like Nadia’s.  However, when the guest list is closer to 250 it can pose a bit of a challenge.  None the less, the challenge was met and after many evenings of writing my heart out I was able to personally invite my nearest and dearest.

I received so many heart warming phone calls and emails as guests received their invitations in the mail.  The hours upon hours of note writing was well worth it! 

Merci beacoup Nadia pour l’inspiration!
