Any discussion of the best posts of TNIB has to include the AMAZING guest bloggers whose advice, words of wisdom and insight into weddings and related topics was sooooooooooooo well received by each of you. So here we go, with my top 5 favorite guests on TNIB.
5. Photography is a HUGE part of any wedding and helping my readers navigate the multitude of considerations a newly engaged couple needs to make regarding photography is none other than Bay Area Indian Wedding photographer Jigar Champaneria. If you missed his expert insights, you can catch them again here: http://thenewindianbride.com/category/photography-week/ And an honorable mention to his wife, up and coming cupcake artist Radha for her guest post durring sweet week: http://thenewindianbride.com/2010/08/30/sweet-week/
4 and 3. Becoming the beautiful, blushing, beaming, bride is no easy task. That is why I was thrilled to have fabulous experts talk all about becoming bridal beautiful. My fourth and third favorite guest posts are a tie between two beauty mavens in Vancouver. The first is Ravy Mehroke, the President of Bombay Brow Bar in Vancouver and her essential eyebrow tips for brides! http://thenewindianbride.com/2010/08/26/gorgeous-arched-and-groomed/ The second, is leading lash expert Joyce Poon the President and Founder of Noir Lash Lounge, Vancouver’s premier lash destination specializing in semi-permanent eyelash extensions. http://thenewindianbride.com/2010/08/25/la-la-la-lashes/
2. Continuing with bridal beauty, the man single-handedly responsible for making my skin beam on my wedding day is non-other than Craig from Gentle Star Med Spa in San Francisco. Ladies, if you are in the Bay Area you must put your face in Craig’s hands and wait to see the beauty that exudes! http://thenewindianbride.com/2010/08/24/its-face-week-first-up-skin/
1. Drumroll please!!! My favorite guest post on TNIB are the wellness tips from Ritu Riyat of Made in Yoga. Ritu guided TNIB readers on how to be a happy and healthy bride with a week of posts on nutrition, fitness, meditation and laughter. http://thenewindianbride.com/category/healthy-happy-bride-week/ She also wrote a guest post on attending my wedding, where she recounts seeing green hills covered in pink on her drive to our Pretty In Pink Sangeet: http://thenewindianbride.com/2010/06/29/guest-post-from-made-in-yoga-friend-of-tnib/
