I’d like to take y’all back to the weekend I spent in New Jersey for a family reunion. In my recap of that weekend, I talked a lot about family, food, and craziness. I forgot to mention one major thing. Don’t hate me, ok?
I forgot to mention that I found my wedding outfit that weekend! Yes, I found “the one.”
See, Edison, New Jersey is the Indian capital of the US. What that means is that Edison, in particular, is home to thousands of Indians. What that means is that there are tons of Indian restaurants, grocery stores, and clothing boutiques. Lucky me!
The day I arrived at my cousin’s house, my parents, sister, and I ventured out to Oak Tree Road (the mostly Indian street in Edison). I tried on a couple of outfits at the first boutique we went to and found one I liked but didn’t love. We then headed to the next store, but I honestly didn’t have high expectations. In my mind, we were just looking. Well, lo and behold, I was shown an outfit that I absolutely loved. After looking at a few other pieces, I asked the lady we were working with if I could try in “the one.” I immediately felt like a princess. It was just what I was looking for. My parents and sister also loved it! By the end of the weekend, it was confirmed, that was going to be MY wedding outfit! We went back to the store and put a deposit down.
Now, fast forward to this weekend. Yesterday morning, I headed to my aunt’s house in Connecticut to pick her up so we could make our way back to NJ for a fitting. The best part about it is that I am more in love with my outfit then ever before! Seeing it again made me so so so excited for the big day!
Now, I know y’all are wondering what the outfit looks like, but I’m afraid you’re not going to see it until after the big day! The reason being because I don’t want Vishnu to see the outfit beforehand. I want him to be surprised! And a part of me wants my guests to be surprised as well. At every wedding I’ve been to, you can almost feel the anticipation right before the bride’s arrival. I don’t want my day to be any different!
Soon enough, my friends, soon enough!
Now, on to the second part of today’s title. I’ve noticed that a lot of bloggers like to share their playlists, which I personally find very helpful. But I have yet to see an Indian song on any of the lists. That needs to change pronto because there are so many awesome songs out there that will literally make you want to stop and dance in the middle of your workout.
So, if you’re looking for a fun way to change up your usual playlist, check out these songs…
1. Desi Girl from the Bollywood movie Dostana
2. Laung da Lashkara from the Bollywood movie Patiala House
3. Nai Rehna by Imran Khan
4. Hadippa the Remix from the Bollywood movie Dil Bole Hadippa
5. Disco Khisko from the Bollywood movie Dil Bole Hadippa
6. Chali Chali from the Bollywood movie Bhaghban
7. Aaja Nachle from the Bollywood movie Aaja Nachle
8. Mauja Mauja from the Bollywood movie Jab We Met
9. Ni Nachle by Imran Khan featuring Lucky
10. Uff Teri Ada from the Bollywood movie Karthik calling Karthik
I especially like the last song. Just YouTube the song title, and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.
It has something to do with this guy…he’s dreamy.
Good night! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
How often do you change up/add to your playlist?

How fabulous that you found your wedding day outfit! I bet it is gorgeous and detailed and colorful and breathtaking =)
It really is!
Woo for finding your wedding dress- super exciting! I love Farhan Akhtar, SO cute! Download ‘Chamak Challo’–> Akon goes Bollywood 🙂
YAY I’m so excited for you that you found your wedding outfit. I bet it’s beautiful! 😀
I’m terrible with updating my playlist… I do it maybe once every 6 months. So I always get so bored of my music!
I’m not too good at updating regularly either.
I really appreciate your playlist recommendations! I love music from Bollywood movies, I used to listen to it while I ran all the time, really got me going. 🙂
Let me know if you like the ones I listed here. Bollywood knows how to do it in the music department!
Can not tell you how excited I am that you found your wedding lengha!!!! And I am totally going ot steal your playlist 🙂
ohhh mannnn Parita!! that’s sooo exciting!! hehe can’t wait to see it, and I can feel the butterflies on behalf of you lol.
Omgsh! haha in high school I used to flip through channels and sometimes watch the Indian/Hindi network. I would just stare into the TV and listen to all their music. I think I recognize chali chali!! Isn’t it the one with the guy following a girl on the street and he trips/falls, etc.? 😛
I love Indian music channels! They’re my fav! I think you’re thinking of the same song – it’s really fun and catchy!
Congrats on finding “the one”. 🙂
I used to change up my playlist way more. But my computer weirdly wiped out my itunes a few months ago and I’ve yet to stop being lazy and export it all again…
oh Edison NJ! I can’t wait to see your outfit, hopefully you will blog the pics!
I love that you put a playlist with Indian songs out there! Awesome!
I am glad you found your perfect wedding outfit…its so important! When I was dress shopping I ended up buying a dress that everyone else liked…and I thought it was pretty, but I didn’t get that overwhelming feeling like it was the one. I ended up returning it and finding the perfect one a few days later!!!
