Maharani Shweta on her wedding style:
"My wedding style was inspired by NYC and natural elements. My Mandap was tones of all yellows as I didn't want bright distracting colors to take away from the NYC skyline and the Hudson river. The overall look was simple and ethereal. For example, all my bridesmaids held a single hydrangea, instead of massive bouquets. I did not have any flowers walking down the aisle with my two brothers, but rather had a parasol with fresh real flowers attached to it - which my younger brother held over me. The reception style was inspired by my outfit - romantic, soft but fun with a little bling. I loved all the candles everywhere!"
On her favorite part of planning:
"I enjoyed putting the personal touches into our wedding. For example, we had a sign throughout the hotel - it was a cute cartoon my cousins had drawn of me and Sagar holding red balloons floating away above the NYC skyline. I also love to DIY - so I ended up doing a lot of crafting for my Sangeet and Mehndi."
