cousin’s wedding and the family-visits that go along with the occasion.  Needless to say, the shopping; stitching of all the sarees & blouses; and keeping in mind the last-minute details, took up all the time I had.   The wedding went well; ever since then I’ve been travelling around Chennai and other southern cities.

This post is a brief on what I had planned to wear for the various rituals in the wedding.  FYI- I’m a Tamil Brahmin (TamBrahm as we’re usually termed in popular lingo), and our weddings are conducted for 3-4 days; they are made up of rituals, each of which have a beautiful meaning to them.

My outfits during the actual wedding days had definitely succumbed to change.  Meeting the entire family was a huge bonus; weddings are always fun and dramatic that way.

I hope all of you are doing whatever makes you happy this summer.

LotsofLove

Hey everyone :) ! This blog is for all those who share my obsession with beauty, fashion, books, and movies. Yes, it seems like a potpourri at first, but one can never entertain a single interest alone; at least I cannot. I'm also a cat-lover or an ailurophile as they call it. This blog will essentially include my random musings and reviews on everything mentioned above and more (of course, I can't review cats, for I truly love them all). Please feel free to contribute and/or critique upon my posts. Lots of love out there to you :) .
