Looking Back: Advice from Shruti

Indian people need escort cards and table numbers. Give them the organization they seek! Otherwise, it’s a mad dash for the best tables, and your poor grandmother is going to get stuck in the back corner of the ballroom while your neighbor’s dog sitter’s best friend’s roommate is at the head table, right next to you.

Looking Back: Advice from Sudhir

Especially with big Indian weddings, it’s hard to spend time with, let alone greet, all of your guests. On top of that, many of the guests you may not know or recognize because the relationship is more with your parents than you. Looking back, I wish I had done a better job of going through our guest list and at least trying to make sure I knew something about everyone who was at our wedding. I also wish I had made the effort to spend a little more “quality time” with our close friends. — Sudhir
