Listening to Akriti Kakar talk about her significant other feels like they’ve been together forever.

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.

Why Kathakali is the perfect entertainment choice for your wedding day

When it comes to celebrating your big day, there are no set rules—join the tribe of newly-weds who are giving their nuptials a festive flavour

Performed at several religious and festive occasions, Kathakali, the Indian classical dance, is now making its way into weddings too. Characterised by dramatic costumes and facial expressions, Kathakali performances engage audiences and entertain them—though many are unaware of the religious significance of Kerala’s popular dance.


Blogger Kavya D’Souza married Anish Nair at a destination wedding. D’souza, owner of StreakHueFall Salon, shares the details, “It was all about giving our guests a taste of Kerala through our three-day wedding celebration. One of the best ways to experience this land is the backwaters, so we decided to host our mehendi on a cruise boat in the backwaters.”

But the couple wanted their guests to experience Kerala’s cultural beauty in its true form and so, for their mehendi, they roped in Kathakali performers. For the bridal entry, the couple arranged for traditional percussionists, who played the chenda(type of drums). The chenda is often heard during Hindu temple festivals and is a common accompaniment in religious art forms of Kerala.
