Neha & Abhishek's Big Fat Indian Wedding {Pune, India}

March 24, 2014 - by Preeti

When Neha Mittal and Abhishek Agarwal got married in Pune, India last year, they didn't just have an Indian Wedding. They HAD a Big Fat Indian Wedding.

It was fantastically epic. Neha wore a collection of designer lenghas and dresses and looked like she floated off the runway. Abhishek styled in true maharaja form: the sherwani, the turban, all the glam for a groom.

It was a maharani and maharaja wedding!

The Bingo & Sangeet night which featured a grand prize giveaway of two cars (yes, cars) took place at the Oxford Golf Club, Bawdhan, Pune. The other giveaway goodies were iPads, iPhones, and macbooks. It was an Apple heaven.

The wedding and reception converted the Radha Raman Lawn, Koregaon Park, Pune to the decadent Dolmabahçe Palace in Turkey.

When I asked Neha what was her favorite moment, she said, "My favorite part was the jaimala (garland exchange). It happened in a very melodramatic way and all eyes were only on us. It was truly special."

Thanks to Knots Forever for capturing this stunning wedding of Neha and Abhishek (and no, she is not related to *that* Mittal).

Sonia Azhar, a big name in bridal ware, has made a rather brave move  with her new line 'Divine Unison.'  Maybe I'm just coming off of Halloween but it feels like she's just taped fairy wings to the back of outfits we've all seen before.  Her combination of religious iconography with South Asian bridal wear is, sadly, not a match made in heaven.
