Bring the auspicious wedding and engagement ring in style!

Though engagement rings are not in our custom, I insisted my dad that I buy a couple ring for my engagement ceremony. I was very choosy, tried and tested multiple shops before finalizing the best engagement ring! Did I have time to plan the best way to carry my engagement ring to the center stage? NOOOOOO… What I notice in most of the weddings and engagements? The ring might be hidden in the groom’s shirt or pant pocket ( the groom will start digging his pocket while the live recording is on but wouldn’t reach the ring sooner, maybe he is tensed or maybe he has a tunnel inside his pants ) Close relatives might keep the rings in their bag or purse ( miraculously, that person will be missing when the priest or the pastor asks for the ring) The bride or the groom might have the rings safe on their hands keeping their fists tightly closed ( this would be seen visibly on all photos ) Bridesmaid or close relatives might wear the rings on their fingers so

Honeymoon tips amidst the busy wedding preparations!

Honeymoon packing becomes less important when you still have a lot of arrangements for your wedding. Wedding plans and arrangements can be given to your relatives, family members but honeymoon arrangements should be done by you so spend a little time in between your busy schedule to plan and pack your things for your honeymoon.

It’s time to realize that today’s kids are active and they have the ability to ask questions and learn. Tell me ‘Don’t do this! And don’t do that!’ My next question will be ‘Why should I not do that? I demand an answer for everything that is imposed on me! I’m married and my Mangalsutra is not extra jewelry that is hung around my neck. It has significance and it has a lot of meaning! Mangalsutra and married women Indian brides are the most beautiful brides in the whole world with a lot of decoration and ornaments on their wedding day. I miss seeing those grandeur brides in
