I had two outfits to choose from for the second night of my friend’s spectacular Indian wedding – a purple dress and a black/turquoise “suit”. Though the skirt was a couple inches too long, I couldn’t resist wearing it. It was too pretty not to!
I put on my tallest, silver wedges and hoped I wouldn’t totally bust it on the dance floor in front of everyone.
The reception was at a local country club.
After picking up your name card, you could check out the frames of the bride and groom – lots of childhood photos!
The reception area was stunning.
I loved the centerpieces.
And the bride and groom had a special table in the middle of two groups of tables.
Check out the wedding cake! Gorgey!
The reception started with cocktail hour by the pool with appetizers.
Hubby and I had a bite of each.
Hubby and me.
By the way – here’s the full ensemble. Can you tell what’s different between this photo and the first? In this one, I also have a bejeweled vest and sash.

And shortly later, several of the bride’s good friends did a fun dance!
The food was catered by local restaurant Saffron.
And it was gooood! I lurve Indian food! I even tried my very first goat! It was pretty good, but not as good as the Chicken Tikka and the paneer. Mmm!
First dance 🙂
Gulab Jamun (balls of dough, but not “dough balls“, in cinnamon syrup) and Chai tea.
And wedding cake – vanilla with mango cream on the inside and fondant frosting!
Of course much dancing ensued. Everyone was getting down and the DJ was doing a great job. I had no idea what type of music they would play since this was my first Indian wedding, but the DJ did a great mix of Indian and American songs. I actually really liked the Indian ones. They have some great beats!
Another congratulations to my friend Marium and of course to her new hubby, too! I wish them the best of luck in the future! 🙂
