DesiWeds founder, south asian wedding resources

meet Shena

Hi, I’m Shena Cherian, I started offering wedding consulting services in 2004 exclusively to South Asian families. At the time, wedding planners for the Desi community did not exist so I knew that there was an absolute need for this service.  After planning over 250 weddings, ranging in budgets from $30,000 to $650,000, I have mastered the art of South Asian wedding planning for couples who live in the States. I’ve also heard way too many horror stories of couples and parents who are winging this on their own. That experience has provided me with the foundation for what DesiWeds represents.
