India & Some Inspiration

Last week, I got some interesting news at work (for the corporate job I unfortunately still have...)  I found out that I am going to India!!  Oh and I leave this Friday... talk about last minute planning.  They barely gave me time to go shopping for some new India appropriate garb.

I've never been to India and am beyond excited / slightly nervous about going.  I think it is going to be a great experience working there for a week and getting to be immersed in that culture.  The one thing I'm not looking forward to?  The 110 degree weather... that should be interesting.  If you have any tips for me to stay cool, please do share!

While I will be there for work with very little free time, we are planning a trip to the Taj Mahal one day.  By doing a quick search online of the famous palace, I am absolutely thrilled to have this opportunity!  I can tell it's going to be one of the most beautiful place I've ever been and can't wait to share lots of pictures with you all.

 Seriously, how amazing is this??

All this research about India gave way to some wedding inspiration which is where my mind always tends to wander after all! (If only I could do the wedding planning full time - someday, someday... that is the plan)

How beautiful would this wedding be?  I love all of the bright colors and ornate decor.  And the reception is stunning!
No Indian wedding is complete without an elephant!

Have you ever been to India?  Please share your stories & tips with me!

बुधवार खुश!

  2. oh so exciting! No doubt you'll pick up tons of wedding and decor inspiration while you're over there! I've never been but some people from our company have been a couple times and loved it. Definitely warm so dress in very light materials and drink plenty of water! Bring me back some textiles!!!
