Meghna and Devansh, Jaipur
The vivid blues of the Greek island of Santorini inspired the decor at this bride's mehndi in Jaipur.
Meghna and Devansh first met as post-graduate students in Manchester, UK. Their friendship evolved into a romance which endured the challenges of a long-distance relationship, till they finally tied the knot at a lavish wedding in Jaipur.
Hosted at the plush Jai Mahal Palace in Jaipur, with its lush lawns and heritage architecture, the wedding saw Meghna and Devansh going the extra step to see that their guests were well taken care of. Thanks to the elegant rooms, well-trained staff and location convenience, the venue ticked all the boxes that the couple wanted for their grand wedding.
The decor for the mehndi was largely inspired by the blue tones of the stunning Greek island of Santorini and was punctuated by pops of pink blooms. A breezy and relaxed affair, the event saw guests dance to their favorite tunes and get henna patterns applied on their hands. Dressed in a pink one-shoulder lehenga, Meghna twirled around to her heart’s content and paired her outfit with a blue shimmery eye look that reflected the theme of the event.
Held by the brilliant blue pool, the haldi function had everyone unleashing their playful side as they smeared the bride with turmeric paste and shared friendly banter. Meghna was also dunked in the pool by her squad which added to the merry vibe of the occasion.
Adding a touch of glamor to the proceedings was the ‘qawali’ themed sangeet whose decor was inspired by Mughal motifs. With a huge stage that encouraged everyone to shake a leg, this event saw the bride and groom perform a duet on stage. Dressed in an off-white lehenga depicting vintage scenery, Meghna looked radiant, and she was joined by Devansh who contrasted her in a black bandhgala with floral designs.
Meghna and Devansh’s wedding echoed the ‘Royal Traditional Palace’ theme with decor that included fairy lights, red drapes and vivid blooms. After an emotional garlanding ceremony, the bride and groom proceeded to the red and white mandap where they took their pheras under the starry night sky. Channeling her inner princess in a pink and white shimmery lehenga, Meghna was all smiles as she looked lovingly at Devansh who chose an off-white and gold sherwani for the occasion.
Bringing their nuptials to an end on a high note, the reception was a dazzling event where the couple mingled freely amongst the guests and enjoyed their first event as newlyweds. Dressed in a dark floral tuxedo, Devansh looked dapper as he struck a pose with Meghna who personified elegance in a dark purple, metallic gown.
Advice For Couples
Meghna advises, “Be sure about what you want and keep your ideas ready in a PowerPoint presentation so that your planners know exactly what your vision is. Also, planning your outfits before buying jewellery is absolutely essential for a seamless look.”
