I'm going to a monsoon wedding!

Jump to last reply

Though I swore i would never again go to India in June, I am breaking that oath! Our former exchange student is getting married in Mumbai and told me she's hoping I can take part in the ceremonies. I am so excited to see her again, and I've always wanted to experience a wedding in India..

She only lived with us for a summer, but i just adored her. She inspired me to take my first trip to India, although by then her family had moved to New Zealand.

Luckily, my daughters and I bought some beautiful saris, though we'll need to get the right accessories. Guess I'd better start practicing my Bollywood moves on the dance floor as well.;-)

Any tips on gift giving, dressing for the various ceremonies or other aspects of an Indian (Hindu) wedding will be greatly appreciated.
