Maharani Apurva, on designing her pre-wedding outfits:

"I conceptualized my own outfits and got my sangeet, shagun and haldi outfits made by our family dressmaker! Also, I must add I traveled to Jaipur, Mumbai and Delhi for all my fabric, jewelry, footwear and trousseau selections."

On her pre-wedding style:

"Mehendi had traditional musicians performing for us. Sangeet was Punjabi style with dhol and sangeet performances by family and friends followed by everybody taking the dance floor with the in-house DJ!"

Sit tight dolls, Apurva gets ready to head to the mandap, next!
