Our Gujarati dulhan today seems like the type of bride-to-be who planned every tiny little detail of her big day, but was able to relax and fully enjoy the day when it arrived. We're loving the ways she combined traditional and Western elements.
From the bride: "For the wedding ceremony, I really wanted a traditional Gujarati wedding, but wanted to balance the grandeur of it with simple and unique details. In sticking to traditions, I had the dots above my forehead drawn with liquid bindi like my mother did before me. Our horse didn't come in time for the ceremony, so Ashish was lifted on his relatives and friends' shoulders the whole way of the baraat. The walk down the aisle was the most emotional for me. I had all my bridesmaids walk down first, and my uncle and my brother walked me down, along with all of my male cousins, as they gave their sister away."
