Finally..my sister-in-law sent me some digitalized wedding pics that I can share! I've been trying to do this ever since Karen posted those lovely pics.
This is where the baraat (the bridegroom, his family, all his guests and a music band) enters. Imagine a few hundred dancing people and a groom on a horse. In most weddings they are also happily intoxicated and shooting guns and other fireworks.
All those white stalls in the background? That's all Food. Each stall had a different kind of Indian cuisine. I would have been very happy if it were somebody else's wedding and I could just eat my way down that line.
Or maybe the photographer was testing his flash. This picture was taken before the guests arrived and the grounds were filled with women decked out in finery, sober-looking men and way more children that there should be on this planet.
..with her Gimped bridesmaids.There are no designated bridesmaids in India, everybody gets to go! I'm in the center, with assorted cousins and friends. My sister (on my left) has a fixed grin on her face coz her sari is about to slide off. (It didn't..rescued by the safety pin.)
