Asian Bride Live ICC Birmingham

asian fashion blog wedding show

Calling all would be brides, mum in laws, bridesmaids and of course grooms to the Asian Bride Live bridal show at ICC Birmingham on Sunday 15th March. Asian Bride Live is now returning to the ICC Birmingham for the second year running on Sunday 15thMarch 2015. The show is organised by Asian Bride magazine, one of UK’s biggest Asian wedding publication. I did attend one of their shows in London last year and really enjoyed the experience of exploring and discovering new brands. What I enjoyed most was the fashion show, that was finely choreographed and a treat for the eyes. This year’s live catwalk has now been upgraded to its own room to create even more theatre for the day.

I personally recommend attending bridal shows in preparation for your big day. You get access to all wedding vendors under one roof. So whether you are looking for photographers, cake makers, makeup artists, caterers or décor companies you will find them all at Asian Bride Live. It’s a good place to start your wedding preparation list. If you have already started planning you wedding then the Asian Bride Live will help you pick up some ideas plus you might be in for some discount from the vendors. The organisers have taken care of your entertainment needs as well – there’ll be the finest in wedding entertainment from dancers to magicians, cabaret acts and musicians, not to mention the best DJs in town.

So go meet the wedding experts on 15th March 2015 at ICC Birmingham and discover all your wedding needs under one roof. See full details below

Be my Valentine

It’s a coincidence that my due date is 14th Feb and I am hoping it turns out to be that day. Even though I won’t be able to venture out much, I still want to make it a special occasion.

Fine dining, night out, movie date seem to be some great options to spend the special day with your loved one. But who says you can’t have the same fun indoors? Here is how I intend to treat us special. I hope you will enjoy the idea of sweet treats in bed.

Aashni + Co Wedding Show

The Red Notebook

Really excited to share this very special post with you all. Have to warn you that it is a long post but I had lots to share too! Last weekend I went to the most awaited Asian wedding show in London courtesy Aashni + Co. I think it’s probably the first time in London we had so many Indian fashion luminaries under one roof. I was in designer heaven – from top tier designers like Sabyasachi and Tarun Tahiliani to new emerging talent like Anushree Reddy and Arpita Mehta.

I have to say that the event was very grand. It presented high-end bridal and occasion wear to the UK audience. Continue reading

What I Wore: Baby Shower

Asian Indian Fashion Blog UK London

Few weeks back my friends hosted an intimate baby shower to welcome the new phase of our lives. I am thankful for the love and support I receive from my circle of friends, who are more like immediate family. Luckily it wasn’t a surprise for me so I had the time to plan my outfit. Continue reading

It’s my first blog post of the year. I have totally indulged myself during the holiday period and did nothing but just slowed down my pace. With only six weeks to go for my due date, there is a lot to organise and plan. I had envisaged that I will sort things out over the Christmas break but things didn’t go as per plan. Sometimes no plan is a good plan. So all I did over the holiday period was eat, drink and be merry. Continue reading

Aashni + Co Wedding Show 25th January 2015

Brides to be, get ready. UK welcomes first of its kind, high fashion Indian bridal exhibition and opportunity to meet the sub continent’s most lauded designers.

It was in 2012 when Aashni Shah recognised a huge void of access to Indian design outside of India. Aashni + Co was launched to introduce a wealth of Indian fashion talent to London. Aashni + Co has carved a niche for itself as one of London’s most sought after destinations for luxury Indian fashion, garnering attention from fashionistas and celebrities in the UK and Continental Europe alike.

Get Party Ready With Very

With the festive and party season rolling out, I wanted to feature a party list on the blog – your go to list to be party ready. For this blog post I want to feature Very.co.uk as a one-stop shop for this party season. Very’s party edit has everything you need to glam.

We all know that one of the best bits of any party is getting ready. Do keep one thing in mind: glamour. The secret is glitter, glam and shimmer. Going for glam doesn’t mean you have to play it safe. At this time of the year, it is totally socially acceptable to go all-out with a flamboyant outfit.

Here are a few of my favourite outfit options for this season.

1. Sparkle through the night – Opt for a sequin dress. If you are out for a special event or a night out with girls then do rock out wearing a sequin dress. Boasting glamorous appeal with sequin embellishment all over, these are some perfect party dresses from Very.
