Bucket List Item: Attend an Indian Wedding

I went to a party recently and a Caucasian couple told me “attend an Indian wedding” is an item on their bucket list.
I was reminded of how fortunate we are to have these beautiful traditions and how much they’ve been embraced around the globe.

It’s pretty cool when you stop and think about dancing in a baraat…with a horse…witnessing a beautiful South Asian ceremony…savoring delicious desi food…in the middle of Newport Beach, Fort Wayne, New York, Toronto or Chicago, and everywhere else around the globe.

Here’s a compilation of photos from some of the weddings featured on ShaadiShop. Hope you enjoy it as you give thanks this holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
