That Foodie Chick’s Bridal Shower In Mumbai Included Massage Treatments By The Visually Impaired!

My bridal shower was organized by my sister, Puja at her residence. She literally arranged for everything – from spa treatments by visually impaired girls to the decor to return gifts (which, by the way, were personalized Nutella jars and soaps) – every single thing was taken care of by her. I just had to show up 🙂

There’s a salon in Bandra (Mumbai), named Metta Spa, that specializes in spa treatments by the visually impaired. They’re always sold out and it’s almost impossible to get an appointment with them if you call in last minute. On my bridal shower, we had two girls who were pampering everyone with their outstanding head, shoulder, back and leg massages!

Talk about relaxed Saturday brunches…or should I say drunches!

Real Bride Tales: My Travel-themed Bridal Shower

My bridal shower was planned by my maid of honor and bridesmaids, with the assistance of my mum and fiancé. Involving my mum in the planning process was extremely helpful, as she was the main link of the coordination required for the surprise.

Months before the actual day, I shared my guest list along with a list of ideas that I would like as the theme. In the options listed, there were various cities mentioned which is why a couple of my friends decided to host a travel-themed shower. This included the elements of a few themes that I suggested and turned out to be the perfect theme, especially since I love travelling and exploring the world!

Since my mum was aware of the shower and the theme, she asked the designer to design my dress accordingly. There were different elements from London & Paris incorporated into my dress that went well with the theme.

I was expecting the bridal shower to be held on the weekend around my birthday (January), but it was planned for mid November. It took place at Plantation, Sofitel Hotel in JBR and the weather was just perfect to host an outdoor event. All in all I’d say that it was planned and executed very well by all my friends and was a pleasant surprise.
