Bride-to-be Heta Gandhi shares her memorable experiences of being a part of ‘A Day with WeddingSutra Favorites’ here.
Heta and her fiance Komal have been neighbors for years. She says, “We’ve been family friends and have known each other since we were little! Over time, we became really good friends, and till today, he remains my best friend and partner-in-crime. We have been dating for eight years, and our relationship deepened very effortlessly. That’s what made us decide to tie the knot.”
After an eventful day with WeddingSutra Favorites, Heta shared her experiences of meetings with the eclectic group of WeddingSutra Favorites that helped her finalize details such as invitations and beauty looks for her wedding in advance.
Stop 1: Consultation with Make-up artist Neeta Kapoor
“The bridal consultation with Neeta for makeup and hair was insightful and a session that I was really looking forward to. She shared simple tips on how to start drinking more water a month before the big day to choosing products wisely for my skin. Her tips and insights made a huge difference in my knowledge about skincare and makeup. As I am going to be a traditional bride, my makeup and hair have to be quite distinct. I also got advice on some hairstyles which was great as I have long hair. It was very helpful for me to ask her makeup related questions which she answered based on her extensive experience. Overall, I quite enjoyed the makeup trial that helped me finalize a bridal look for my big day.”
Stop 2: Karpagam Jewellers
“The lovely jewellery pieces I saw at Karpagam Jewellers were ethnic and elegant enough to suit traditional bridal outfits. The gold choker was just so beautiful and different. They made me try each piece with such care that I felt quite special! I saw everything – from their expensive masterpieces to a collection that would be perfect for any pocket. My concern has always been that heavy jewellery would weigh me down by the end of the day. But Karpagam jewellery strikes a great balance between lightweight and elaborate designs in their sets which are perfect for longer wedding ceremonies. I have to say that this store is the one-stop-shop for any bride looking for perfect jewellery for any of her functions. Everything is so tastefully designed that I guarantee a bride-to-be will have a hard time picking only one jewellery piece.”
Stop 4: Bhumika Grover
“Whether you want a traditional lehenga or one with a modern touch, this store is just brilliant with their range and collections. There are many variations in colors and patterns. They also customize pieces according to your preferences and give you the flexibility to go creative if you want to contribute to designing your wedding outfit. The pastel collection I explored there was beautiful and caught my fancy.”
Stop 4: Kankotri Invites
“Visiting Kankotri Invites was one of the highlights of our entire experience, and I cannot thank WeddingSutra enough for introducing us to them. The designs and space just inspire you to get creative with your wedding invitations. I wanted an eco-friendly wedding invite and had a fair idea of what it would look like, but the team at Kankotri Invites showed me how we could make my idea even more interesting and cost-effective. You tell them what you want and they have everything that fits your personal choice. There were so many options and designs made from rustic handmade papers that matched my aesthetic perfectly.”
