As the great Indian shaadi gets bigger, more couples are tweaking convention and giving age-old customs a new-age spin. They’re putting the wah! in vivaah. Have you got your invitation yet?

Whether you’re the bride, the groom, the host or just someone with 200 glittery invitations to sangeets, mehendis, nikaahs, nuptials and receptions this year, you won’t be able to escape this wedding season. Rings will be exchanged, pheras taken and solemn promises of togetherness, sharing and love will be made. But somewhere through it all, you’ll probably notice little changes – the location may be out of the ordinary, the couples might wear something unusual, the rituals itself could stray from the norm. India’s brides and grooms are proving that weddings needn’t just be big and complicated; they can be personal, romantic and a little crazy as well. Read on for their stories... and please do RSVP.
