Oh my gosh, I’m so excited. A white girl marrying a Hindu boy in MD. Can you just transfer all of your knowledge to me telepathically? (haha.. i wish…). Your wedding looked beautiful, and I’m glad to see you were happy with most of your vendors. 

Can I ask if you did a buffet style or sit down style meal?  We (eventually, although no ring yet *blush*) plan to do a fusion buffet with mostly indian food. We toss around ideas about doing a christian ceremony here, then reception, then gigantic hindu ceremony in Malaysia (where all of his family except for his parents/sisters are).  If you don’t mind sharing… what hindu ceremony did you incorporate?  Also, assuming that you served indian food, how did that work out for the guests who weren’t used to it? 

 Sorry to bombard you, just the similarities are uncanny, and there are so few weddings for me to drool over (even for just regular hindu weddings!)

Hey mechiebaby, if you’re not already on there, just want to point you in the direction of the South Asian Board on the knot — about half of the women posting there are non-Indian women marrying Indian men and a couple of them are from the DC area (I’m in DC, but the opposite, an Indian woman marrying a non-Indian man – we’re having two back to back ceremonies and then a reception).  Anyway, everyone on that board has been super helpful with questions and answers.

@ Houligan:  I guess you’re right, its one meal, everyone will sort themselves out, and everyone likes naan!  I know you said you were disappointed with the service… I am not exactly familiar with catering buffet events… Did the Bombay Grill supply servers, or did everyone just serve themselves? Did you have to rent all the plates etc or did they take care of that?  I’ve only ever been to sit down receptions, but know that for us a buffet is the way to go. And (please if you dont feel comfortable answering dont worry about it), about how much did it work out per plate?  Thanks for your patience 🙂

 @ deux.etoiles: thanks for the suggestion…I’m too shy to go on those boards before I actually get engaged, but I’ll keep it in mind 🙂 good luck with your planning! I’m sure two back to back ceremonies will be awesome, but probably a challenge to organize!

I went to a bridal shower at the Delaplaine for a cousin and they did a fab job decorating for that also. Who did your dress alterations? I’ve ordered my dress from TLC in Frederick and they don’t have an in-house seamstress.
