My Wedding Binder

Yes, I have a wedding binder. And yes, it's deserving of its own post. Because it's not like I could use just any old binder...I "upholstered" one with red fabric from one of my sisters old outfits, complete with the "Gota" appliqué.

The Arrival of My Louboutins

Eeeeeeeeee!!!!! They've arrived!!! This was the exact squeal of delight that I let out when my mom texted me at work telling me "you won't believe what I have for you.""My shoes?!?!?!" I replied.

Four Months to Go!

I  had this realization the other day. When I first had my baat pakki (a "pre-engagement" sorta thing) in the summer of 2011, a wedding in the autumn of 2013 felt like ages away! Even when my fiance officially put a ring on it (in a manner that was nothing short of a production, by… Continue reading Four Months to Go!
