Indian inspriation

My friend Nidhi who got married here in Delhi in December just sent me the snaps from her wedding:

Enough with the white dresses.... that's what I call a wedding outfit! (She's the one in pink in the middle; I'm the one in gold who doesn't look Indian!) I wonder if there's any way of using the colours. I read somewhere about someone using saris as table cloths. Not sure how that would work, but could be worth considering.

You are totally right - where did all this white wedding dress nonsense come from, I want a pink and gold and green outfit with sparkles - your friend looks great!

I actually think using saris as table runners is a wonderful idea, I can just picture the colour and the drama and of course the nod to the time you have spent in India.

I love the sari idea. And you're so right about white dresses, they're a long way from the best thing you could ever wear.

Oh, and I dated a man who's background was Chinese. I really like their tradition: a minimum of 3 dresses, including a bright red and gold (lucky colours dress!
