Speaking of beachy affairs, this wedding in the Bahamas has some of the very elements we mentioned in this DIY post! Don't you love it when you come across an idea and see it in action just a little bit later? Neeti and Scott got married in the Bahamas surrounded by close family and friends - and you get to hear all about it from the bride herself! Here she is:
Having grown up in completely different parts of the world, we had a hard time picking a place for the wedding. Should it be in Pittsburgh where he is from, or Singapore where I grew up? We ended up picking the island of Nassau because if there’s one thing we had in common, it was that our families and friends loved to have a good time.
We had a Hindu ceremony on the beach with the color scheme of turquoise, cream and silver. Being a DIY Bride, as well as a bit of a control freak =P, I spent many hours on the little touches. I used blue wine bottle labels to adorn the cover page of our ceremony programs. I then scanned those in and use the graphic to make smaller tags on a number of things including the buri fans we handed out to our guests. I had help from the hotel (Sheraton Nassau) and my family to make the garlands, and the traditional cloth that was used to adorn my walk down the aisle with my brothers. Overall, it was a small traditional wedding but it was just the way we imagined it to be - with smiles all around.
And there you have it - Neeti and Scott's lovely wedding in the balmy Bahamas. Congrats guys!
