Bloggers have a unique way of inspiring us. One post with some skincare product in it, and they'll get us hooked on to it. But to persuade us to adopt certain wedding trends (that most of us have been dreaming of since our childhood), surely makes a mark of a good influencer. Here are a few bloggers who swept us off our feet with their grand Indian (and Western) weddings, and also created a few benchmarks for the best 5 days of our lives.
Each of these women come with different tastes and personalities, so regardless of your own baseline aesthetics, we are sure you will find inspiration ahead.
