Dipti and Arpan’s Super Glam Indian Wedding in Chicago by Lauren Ashley Studios

Happy Thursday everyone! I have a day out of the office today as it’s the summer holidays, so I’ meeting up with my best friend and taking Dexter and his cousin to Chatsworth for the day. I’m looking forward to a day in the outdoors, I’m in need of some fresh air and a day off! So while I’m off in the Derbyshire countryside I have this amazing Indian wedding to share with you. Dipti and Arpan were married on 3rd October 2021 in Chicago. They held a super glam, high end wedding that looks incredible, as do they! The decor, the size of the flower decorations, the outfits, all so lavish and opulent! Big thanks to Lauren Ashley Studios for the superb photos.

The proposal
Arpan and I were together for two years, following a set-up by his sister. We are both massive fans of the band OAR. And for our engagement, Arpan decided to get in touch with them, to see if they would get involved. Thankfully, they said yes, and during a concert that we were at, the guys helped out with the proposal. It was a uniquely memorable moment, and has sealed my love for that band! And Arpan of course!

The dress
I am so pleased to have found Studio East6 in Chicago, as they have an unparalleled collection of contemporary, luxury styles that infuse Western trends with East Indian designs. It was the perfect place for me, as I needed multiple outfits, and I knew that Rupa Vora, the owner, would know exactly what to suggest. She’s worked with some of the best designers in India, and she was able to find me outfits that I absolutely loved for each of my events.

How did you plan your wedding?
The planning part of our wedding was certainly stressful, but our planner, JD Events, was wonderful. They really helped us to try to enjoy the planning process, by taking many of the tasks off our shoulders. Tasks that, until the day of, I didn’t even realize were being done! It’s incredible just how much work wedding planners really do for their clients. If we did not have JD by our side on the day of, it would not have gone as perfectly as it did.
For the decor, we worked with Paige from Yanni Design Studios. We only met with her a couple of times, but after the initial meeting she knew exactly what we wanted, and when I saw our wedding mandap and the reception room for the first time, it took my breath away. They did such a beautiful job, and it was definitely one of the high points for us and our guests. We had so many people tell us how spectacular the decorations were.

Advice for other couples
Having JD Events really helped, but we couldn’t help but sweat the small stuff, and that stopped us from enjoying the little things during planning, and on the big day. So, I would suggest that couples get as much help as they can, and attempt to let whatever stress you encounter, just fall off your shoulders. Once you get to your wedding day, you will have done as much as you can anyway, and whatever is going to happen will happen.
