Hello, and welcome to The Desi Bride!
I'm Arjita Shrimali, the founder of The Desi Bride (TDB). I recently relocated with my husband from Jersey City to my childhood home in Dallas and since my undergrad days at The University of Texas at Austin, have always a Longhorn at heart!
A little bit about why I started TDB: My husband and I spent 11 months planning our destination wedding in Jaipur, India. It was our fairytale wedding, but it was also the most stressful event we have planned. My parents wanted to throw us a reception back home in Texas, so we returned from our wedding and started planning our third reception. As with our wedding, for our Texas reception, we wanted to mix our traditional Indian cultural roots with a modern American feel, which required a lot of research, attention to detail, and multiple conversations with our vendors. Most importantly, we wanted to throw an event that all of our guests would have fun at and remember.
While our reception turned out to be loads of fun and many of our vendors were amazing, we had several vendors that turned out to be not as great as we had expected them to be.
I wish it had been easier to find the best vendors, read their reviews and understand pricing all in one place, but searching for vendors was quite tedious and often word of mouth or through stalking Instagram posts.
Hence, The Desi Bride was born. The Desi Bride is a one-stop platform for couples to learn about & curate the best vendors in their wedding location with price transparency. From venues to photographers, we curate and bring you the top vendors. I hope this platform can help you in your wedding planning process and make the process a tidbit easier! Please do share any thoughts or feedback you have as you peruse The Desi Bride.
Happy wedding planning!
