// Cards by Made By Badal //

As you probably guessed by now, I loved the idea of cute, customized props for our wedding. From chalk boards to welcome signs, I had so much fun coming up with ideas and bringing them to life. One of the intentions Shiv and I set for our wedding was to have fun and make each event a celebration. It’s easy to get stressed out, take things too seriously, and get bogged down in the details during your wedding. Instead, we made a schedule and ideas that worked for us. Given my husband was laid back when it came to planning, I was able to indulge in my creatively quirky side. While some (ok most) ideas were a bit far fetched, the ideas we did decide on turned out so fun! For example, our photographer planned a first look shoot before our ceremony. We wanted the photos to be more casual and fun and not be too posed. We decided to write each other messages and exchange our cards at our first look.  We found fun Indian-inspired cards by Made By Badal. On Badal’s Etsy site, there are a wide variety of cards for us to pick from. My favorites are the Bridesmaids card, festival cards, and of course “Your Are My Favorite Ladoo”. Badal also designs items such as henna inspired table numbers, which we used during our reception!

When I think of beautiful, elegant, and grand weddings – I think of Sonal J. Shah Event Consultants. Having attended weddings that Sonal has coordinated, I can say first-hand that Sonal’s work truly sets her apart. Recently, actress Melanie Kannokada’s destination wedding was featured in Harper’s Bazaar Bride India. Unlike many South Asian weddings that tend to go over the top, Melanie’s wedding was tasteful and beautiful in every way. Sonal and her team have helped Melanie and over 1300 brides plan their dream wedding. I chatted with Sonal to learn more about her experience and approach to wedding planning.
