REAL WEDDINGS get inspired Browse local weddings, including Mansai and Bill’s glam day at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel. “We wanted our outfits to take center stage,” Mansai says.

Here’s how they made tradition: “Red is a color commonly used in Hindu weddings, so we put a modern twist on tradition by using bright pink,” she says.

your day, your way

When my husband, Mickey, and I tied the knot in St. Louis (my hometown), we wanted to include a subtle nod to New York City too—after all, it was the place we met and where we planned to continue building our life together.

From spins on classic wedding rituals to totally unexpected wedding venues (like a circus—really!) and inventive ways to honor two different cultures in one epic party, we’ve got lots of ideas to help you make your wedding day a true reflection of who you are as…
