Wedding Saris – #TBT

For today’s #TBT I dug into the files to my friend Harish’s wedding in 2005. One of my favourite photos.
My friend @bhudeo  asked if I wore a Punjabi suit.
I did not, even though Harish and his family offered to take me shopping for a sari. I thought about it but after some consideration I was worried about feeling like I was in a costume being a cultural tourist, rather than being fully present celebrating my friend’s day. Silly maybe but true.
Maybe next time I’ll get a sari. They are so beautiful and I’d love to have opportunities to wear one without feeling like I’m dressed up in a costume.
