The Big Indian Wedding presents the larger-than-life, sometimes outlandish, generally madding, and always high-octane world of Indian marriage ceremonies!

Dip in to discover of the zany, over-the-top, and thus far undisclosed stories associated with the well-heeled Indian s courtship and nuptial dance. From inebriated first dates over bottles of Dom PĂ©rignon; to inspired proposals in exotic locations; to the entrance of the big-ticket wedding planner to, finally, the giant wedding itself, preluded by shopping sprees, bachelorettes, sangeets and mehndis, and culminating in the mother of them all, the saat phere this book is the ultimate compendium to the Indian marriage tamasha.

Written by someone who has keenly observed and enthusiastically participated in weddings and has almost been roped into one herself and peppered with witty observations, merry quizzes, and a whacky proposal manual (Bollywood-style), this book is a satirical account of the excesses of modern-day Indian weddings, and a sobering comment on the simplicity of the past.

Author Bio: Born and brought up in New Delhi, Sakshi Salve holds a bachelor s degree in business management from the University of Exeter, UK. After working for one year at a reputed fashion house in London, she had two stints in the banking sector at UBS and Barclays, following which she moved back to New Delhi to set up a lifestyle store at the DLF Emporio mall with her mother. Her love for fine dining took her back to London, where she completed a comprehensive culinary course from the reputed Le Cordon Bleu. She also spent a summer in New York City and completed an intense scriptwriting course from New York University.

Sakshi loves to travel, is a voracious reader and is instinctively drawn to all things spiritual. She divides her time between New Delhi and London, and is now planning to pursue full-time writing and entertainment.
