When I met Anu I was immediately struck by her style and grace. After learning more about how she runs her business (not to mention the business itself – Exclusively.In Weddings), I was convinced that this beautiful lady has the whole package: brains and beauty!

Style tips for South Asian weddings by Anu Duggal of Exclusively.In:
Fashion: Many designers are creating Indo-Western gowns, bringing the best embroidery from South Asia and pairing it with silhouettes from the West. We love Payal Singhal’s flowy cocktail gowns with light embroidery. Pair one with fun earrings that make a statement and you’re all set for your party.
Jewelry: To create a South Asian-infused style, accent your wedding attire with an elegant, colorful necklace or earrings that match your style and your wedding dress. Your jewelry should enhance your dress, not be the star. Visit Art Kart on Exclusively.In Weddings to see their latest collection of wedding jewelry.
Makeup: Open a makeup bag for an Indian wedding and you're sure to find the most essential piece of makeup: black eyeliner. To infuse a bit of Indian-ness into your look, add black liner (waterproof of course!) to your upper and lower eyelids and voilà, you're a certified Indian princess.
Gifts: Give your bridesmaids something unique with a delicate shawl or earrings encased in a lovely brocade box.
Accessories: It’s the little details that count! Complete your look with a bold accessory, such as a rich brocade purse or a bejeweled clutch.
