  • Hi there, I used Nu Waves salon in Blue Bell (not sure if that is too far for you to go to, but they may be willing to travel). The girls did a great job with my hair, make-up, bridal eyebrow bindis, tikka placement, and dupatta setting, and they we…
  • Hi there, You might find these sites helpful: http://www.ehow.com/about_6603820_do-guests-wear-indian-wedding_.html http://wedding.theknot.com/wedding-resource-guide/south-asian-weddings/articles/hindu-wedding-guest-qa.aspx Hope this helps.
  • 1. I have no idea about good Judaica websites, but your Rabbi might be able to point you in the right direction. Depending on where you're ordering the items from, make sure you give ample time for shipping and processing (overseas orders take longe…
  • I helped my fiance pick out my ring, and boy am I sure glad I did that! I went in thinking I wanted a particular setting and yellow gold. I completely changed my mind. If I hadn't tried on the ring, I would never have known what I think looked good …
  • Edison is a great place to shop. However, it's best to go there on a weekday when there are less crowds. Also, be prepared to go early in the day, because sometimes the tailors get busy, and same-day alterations might not be possible. Sometimes I th…
  • Hillcroft. Apparently that's where my Houston relatives get good Indian clothes. Make sure you barter (always carry cash when you go to these places). If possible, take an Indian person wirh you (helps with translating, making sure they aren't givin…
  • Are the ceremonies back to back? You could word your invite like: Please join us for our Hindu ceremony at 2p.m. A Christian ceremony will follow at 4:30pm. If there's a time gap between ceremony 1 and ceremony 2, what are you planning on having …
  • Here's what I would say: "Dear FSIL, Thank you so much for generously offering to pay for our ketubah. Before we begin our search for a ketubah, could you give a price range that you would like us to be respectful of? I am very much looking forwar…
  • My wedding is booked for a Sunday. It'll start at 4pm, cocktail hour between 5-6, and reception at 6-10pm. A lot of our guests will be travelling internationally for our wedding, so we are fairly certain they'll stay for the whole thing, especially …
  • How much would your florist charge you for a bouquet for yourself? How much for a bridesmaids bouquet? The cost should help you decide if it's really worth it. Are you planning on preserving your bouquet in some way, so you can enjoy it for a long…
  • To echo the previous post, eye primer is a great tool to prevent creasing. That is a "must-have" in my everyday makeup collection. I recently bought a Stila eyeshadow palette, and it had some sample eye designs with instructions. The Stila eyeliner …
  • After my terrible experience buying clothes online from India, I just had to respond to this post. For my cousin's wedding a few years ago, my sister and I decided to buy some outfits at Utsav online because we thought there's more selection, and be…
  • We got our engagement photos done because we want to use them for our save the dates. We got ours done a few months after we got engaged.
  • hmmn...I'm torn about save the dates. On the one hand, it's useful if you have a lot of out-of-town guests who might need to book hotels, take time off work, etc. But if most of your guests live close by, it might not be necessary. I got a magnetic…
  • If I were a guest, and I saw a reserved sign, I would not cross it without permission. Find 10 of your other VIP guests (first cousins? Aunts and uncles? If your grandparents are elderly and need a nursing assistant?) and tell them that you have res…
  • Ooh, diyas might be pretty, but they can also get hot, and if they're the oil kind, the oil can spill and burn someone or soil their clothes. Maybe you could fill the inside of a diya with one of those battery operated tea-lights? That way you get t…
  • You already asked them to be in the party, so asking them to step down now would cause a lot of hurt feelings. 9 bridesmaids can still work out with a party of 100. Yes, it's probably more bridesmaids than is ideal, but it's not the end of the world…
  • Hi there, You might find this website somewhat helpful: http://www.interfaithfamily.com/ You can fill out their form to get someone to contact you: http://www.interfaithfamily.com/jml/index.php?option=com_civicrm&view=Profiles&Itemid=62…
