Dear Readers,

Congratulations on your engagement! You’ve found the love of your life, and now the excitement of planning what may be the most important day of your life is upon you. During this time of anticipation and expectation, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the multitude of tasks involved with planning your wedding.

Let’s face it, there is never enough time to visit every reception site, flip through every photographer’s albums or taste food from every Indian restaurant in the area. But do not panic, the Desh-Videsh wedding special issue is here to help you. Relax and browse through this issue while you get a pedicure. We invite you to peruse our website or the pages of our magazine. Find valuable information from hiring a panditji to tips from professionals themselves on questions to ask when booking your vendors. We are here to help you make your wedding flow smoothly. With our desire to be fresh, inspirational and unforgettable, we set the trends and influence the planning decisions of contemporary couples across the area.

I’ve been to many types of weddings over the years. The celebrations that stand out the most are when the couple incorporates people, places and things that are most important to them. Whether you are recently engaged, halfway through your planning or getting married tomorrow, this issue is sure to help you. Your wedding celebration is a reflection of who you are and the values you hold dear such as family and tradition. Hopefully, we can help you turn your vision of a dream wedding in to a beautiful reality!

As in past wedding issues, this issue features some of the most unique and breathtaking weddings from Florida, Georgia and Carolinas. Learning from someone else’s experience is one of the wisest things you can do!

Learn more about amazing honeymoon destinations in India, from the beaches of Goa to the hills of Ooty. We want to show you places that perhaps, you might have never thought of that would be great for your wedding or honeymoon.

I would also like to invite you to take advantage of our MyShadi Bridal Expos in Orlando and Charlotte. The Expos will provide a one-of-a-kind backdrop for some of Florida’s and the Carolinas’ top wedding vendors to introduce their services to you. Enter our raffle, sample products, enjoy tastings, and watch make-up sessions, then stay for our runway fashion show, featuring the latest in styles for brides, grooms, bridesmaids, and last but not least, mother-in-laws.

Finally, remember – we love to hear from our readers and would love to feature your wedding in our magazine! Email me ateditor@deshvidesh.com.

Best wishes for efficient wedding planning and a blissful marriage!
