About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Keep calm and plan your wedding!

Though planning a wedding is one of the most thrilling experiences of one’s life, it can easily become one of the most stressful moments. To weather through the inevitable challenges and anxiety, arm yourself with information and knowledge to prepare for whatever lies ahead

The Lifestyle Dodgeball

Often, brides are so caught up in the preparations that they tend to develop dark circles, acne, pigmentation, hair fall and unwanted hair growth. Besides these appearance-related concerns, there are health issues that must be addressed. Dr Sonia Tekchandani, consulting dermatologist, The Wedding Clinic in Pune, advises, “Brides usually focus on weight as an aspect of being healthy and tend to ignore underlying health concerns. Take for instance, medical conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome/Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOS/PCOD), which is a hormonal disorder common among many women. It is advisable that brides undergo a medical check-up and start treatment five to six months before the wedding, so that all concerns can be treated for not only good health, but also a natural glow. “Knowing well that brides have a lot on their minds and that it can be difficult to spot symptoms, Tekchandani lists the red flags, “In PCOS/PCOD, irregular periods, recurring lower face acne, unusual weight gain, hair fall, and thick hair growth on upper lip and chin are some of the common symptoms. Regular exercise, weight control and proper diet are important to tackle it.”

The timing

Timing is everything. It would be amazing to get married during the holidays or even on Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve—all your relatives are available, everyone can make it, and the date makes it oh-so-special! But in order to get the best deals on venues, hotels, travel and catering, you would be better off picking a flexible date that doesn’t coincide with a holiday.
