How we met
“We’re from such different worlds. I met Dhruv at my sister’s wedding and it was hate at first sight. I thought he was very rude. Someone told me he was my sister’s best friend’s brother and he started sending me friendly overtures on Facebook. We used to chat a bit – we moved to BBM and then Whatsapp. We didn’t talk very often though and then his mum started looking for a girl for him to marry.
One day, he called and kept insisting I meet him and I couldn’t say no. It was all we needed, that first meeting. We were inseparable after that. We became best friends, partied but there wasn’t a hint of romance. The idea was that I’d help set him up with a girl and he’d set me up with a suitable boy.
Little did we know, huh? Friendship brings out the best in you and the truth of a relationship. We never talked about dating or proposed to each other but suddenly, we were a couple, so lost in love with each other.
However, after our roka, I decided to break with tradition and went down on one knee and asked him to marry me in front of his friends!”
“We’d always wanted a destination wedding. Having planned for an April wedding, we chose Jaypee Residency Manor in Mussourie. It was the best decision. Our guests could just relax because the weather was beautiful, we were surrounded by hills and the place has a beautiful vibe. The food at Jaypee was mindblowing – there wasn’t a single guest who didn’t praise the menu. And the staff were extremely polite.”
“Dhruv and I envisioned the décor and our planners executed it perfectly. We wanted an English Autumn feel with crystals, white foliage and a tint of blue. The stage was covered in pastel flowers with little hearts suspended from above.”
“I wanted the mehndi to be a riot of bright color. I told the planner I wanted the colors rendered in fun props and that’s exactly what they did – multi-colored kettles, cart, colorful glasses, etc. made the decor pop out even more. There were multiple games for the guests and there were dholwalas and a Punjabi dance troupe for more fun!”
“I wanted the décor highlight to be the color red. And we made it happen with an abundance of red roses. Everything came together beautifully. The mandap was gorgeous and the set up was straight out of a dream. My outfit had a royal vibe and I wore intricate jewellery and a headpiece. The idea was to be different but elegant at the same time and it worked out.”
Advice for Couples
“Plan everything well in advance and distribute the responsibilities among your friends and families as much as you can. This will take the entire burden off your shoulders. Make sure you sleep well and are rested so you are bright and energetic on your big day. Then all that remains is for you to smile and experience the beautiful moments.”
