I got invited to a Bengali wedding on Thursday 12th June. This was one of my wishes before I left NZ - to go to a wedding and also to wear a saree - my wish came true together!
Mini who I work with at Microland invited me, it was her cousin's wedding. It was a small wedding of about 300 people. The ceremony took about 2 hours to complete and the bride and groom looked like dolls. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengali_wedding <---- for more info (love wiki!)
But I got to get all dressed up in a saree! So very exciting, and I had a lot of fun learning about the cultural I didn't trip once, and it was very comfortable to wear too.
