Hi!  Thanks for visiting Happy Shaadi Seattle. I'm Rachel, owner and editor of the site.

Happy Shaadi Seattle is a wedding blog inspired by the colors, culture, and creativity of South Asian weddings. I strive to provide helpful wedding planning advice and ideas alongside real wedding and vendor features that are sure to inspire brides and planners alike.

I started this site way back in 2012 after struggling to plan my own Indian fusion wedding in Seattle. It took a significant amount of research to find the right vendors to help bring our vision to life. There was no centralized resource where I could find inspiration for cultural weddings. The vendors I was interviewing all promised the moon and stars, but really didn't have the level of experience that we were looking for.

After our wedding, my husband and I agreed that there really should be a better resource for brides and families planning their own events here in the greater Seattle area. And so, Happy Shaadi Seattle was born.

I hope these resources help inspire you and guide you to the right businesses for a truly happy wedding planning experience.
