While researching India for my post I came across an interesting statistic
the Indian wedding industry has today ballooned to a whopping 40-billion dollar enterprise, and is still growing exponentially. -the Malaysia Star
Ooohh..apparently Indian brides and grooms have decided to ignore the recession and throw caution to the wind on their wedding day.
“Often, money is not even discussed at client meetings,” says wedding planner, Meher Sarid. “They just tell us what they want and we have to produce it.”-the Malaysia Star
I can't stand it!
The most talked about wedding celebration in recent history was the one hosted by US-based Indian hotelier Sant Chatwal, 65, for his son Vikram’s marriage to Delhi model Priya Sachdev in 2007. The wedding had creative inputs from Milan’s Paola Ricotti and production designer Sumant Jaikrishnan was on the scale of a Hollywood production. It included a restrospective of Ferragamo’s Maharani collection from their museum in Florence, a fashion show where 25 leading designers displayed their best creations along with collections from Valentino, Marc Jacobs and Galliano. -the Malaysia Star
Be. Still. My. Beating. Heart. Did they just say Galliano?
Who can forget the uber chic Elizabeth Hurley when she married that insanely good looking ___________ (whoever he was, but he was in fact, Indian)? The point of the matter is..Who could forget that wedding?
Are you kidding me? I mean everyone looks good on their wedding day, but Liz, you set the bar. And by the way..that handsome Indian man..has a name. Arun Nayar. It's Indian for tall drink of water.
And the colors....White schmite, it's all about color dah-ling. Did someone say BLING baby?
