Dear Members,  


Welcome to another edition of BindiWeddings. 

I can't believe this is my last editorial for the year. 2012 has been an incredible year for me as I spent most of it planning and celebrating my wedding, to enjoying the life of a newlywed.  I'd like to take this opportunity to thank YOU, the fans, for sharing this auspicious time with me. Your advice and support over the past year helped me successfully plan the wedding of my dreams.  


2012 also saw five notable weddings in Bollywood from Saif-Kareena to Vidya Balan and her own SRK, Siddharth Roy Kapur, who recently tied-the-knot in a private affair. HERE's a list of the Top 5 Bollywood weddings of 2012. 


As we look ahead and prepare to ring in 2013, be sure to start thinking of your New Year's resolutions, especially if you're a soon-to-be bride/groom. Keep in mind that life is too short AND you only live once. Let 2013 be the year YOU shine - a year you'll never forget! 


Until next time...

Happy holidays and best wishes for the New Year.

Top 5 Bollywood Weddings of 2012
Bollywood Weddings 2012
The year 2012 saw several Bollywood stars walking down the aisle. From Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan to Vidya Balan and Siddharth Roy Kapur, many celebrities sealed their relationship after years of courtship.

While some stars kept their nuptials under low profile, others made it an extravagant affair with extensive coverage by the media.  

Here are the top five celebrity weddings of 2012:

1. The list is topped by so called royal couple of Bollywood - Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor. After almost five years of courtship, the couple tied the knot on Oct. 16. The wedding was a five-day extravaganza and the reception was attended by several B-town personalities like Shahrukh Khan and wife Gauri, Ranbir Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora and designer Manish Malhotra.

2. The next grand Bollywood wedding of 2012 was between Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'Souza. The couple met each other for the first time on the sets of "Tujhe Meri Kasam" and dated for almost eight years before getting married on Feb 3. The wedding was solemnized in Maharashtrian and Christian style.

Bridal New Year's Resolution
Here are 10 New Year's resolutions for every bride-to-be:

Lose weight

We all want to look our best when it comes to the big day, and New Year is always a great time to kick-start some weight loss. Whether it's through a pre-wedding diet or an exercise regime, there are plenty of ways to shift some pounds that won't get in the way of planning. As well as losing weight you'll also enjoy a boost in your overall health and well-being, which will give you that healthy glow every bride dreams of when you walk down the aisle.

Whether it's a best friend who you've drifted apart from, or a family member you've had a petty argument with, make it your resolution to get back in touch with someone you were once close to and invite them to your wedding. What better reason than the most important day of your life to let bygones be bygones and reconcile with a loved one? They'll probably be thrilled that you asked, and it'll soon...
