Maharani Apurva, on her wedding style:

"A two day affair of back-to-back Punjabi and Rajput rituals made the ceremony exciting and exquisite. The events were beautifully planned, the decor was thoughtful and very thematic, food and alcohol flowed freely and it was one of the most fun weddings we attended. It was ours. The colors of what we wore being the focus, we had complementary hues running in the decor. We chose brights mostly, for the winter wedding."

On what she enjoyed most about planning her dream wedding:

"Art and styling being my background I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Right from designing the invites to exploring fabrics, styles, patterns for my outfit. I loved getting the whole event organized especially the girly stuff like selecting decor, the dance practices. The pampering from family and friends. All of it made it super memorable."

On her most memorable wedding moments:

"The walk to the Jai-Mala mandap was so emotional, as I met and greeted friends and family along the way, while they witnessed this beautiful transformation. My husband waiting for me at the mandap, looked into my eyes like He read my mind and knew what I was feeling exactly.

Magical was when the Jai-Mala was exchanged and my Raja in spite of being held up by our people, grabbed a chance to caress my face in full view of everybody."

On her and Arjun's special dance:

"Despite my Raja being a Naval Officer and his tight schedules, we managed to Skype and practice our dance together. Choreographed by Srikant, a trainer with Shiamak Davar. It was Raabta we chose. Raabta - For the words felt so appropriate to us, since there was always a connection between us. A feeling so strong that, we believed everybody finds his/her better half, and us having met again was a sign from above."

On the role that family and friends played:

"I had support all the way. My in-laws for finding us this dream destination, my mum and brother for letting me go crazy with all my ideas and execution. My friends for helping me with places to shop all over India, guiding me in these cities. Deepti, Geetu, Namrata, Bhavya who stood by me throughout. Farah my best friend who met me after about 8 long years coming all the way from Riyadh. A special mention - my bhabhi Sneha, who was carrying at the time, organized a sweet hen party with my closest friends and colleagues, was also a huge help in designing my outfits."

Additional thoughts from the bride:

"The venue we chose was Alwar Bagh, Alwar, Rajasthan, a gorgeous heritage hotel. Arjun and I were keen on having a traditional Rajasthani theme as I'm Rajput, and rasams of the Punjabi's as he is Punjabi. Mehendi that 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. There was love of course, friends and family who truly rejoiced with the two families coming together over some great company, authentic Rajasthani food, the choicest of cocktails and total Bollywood naach-gaana."

Enjoy the rest of your day, dolls, and don't forget to join us tomorrow for another spectacular wedding event!

Maharani Apurva, on meeting the Raja of her dreams, Arjun:

"We met in high school, there’s not usually a fun ‘how we met’ story behind it! No romantic story of the stars aligning and fate bringing us together. Somehow there was something we knew was more to us. Sadly, we moved schools and soon lost touch."

Meet me back here for more Maharani magic from today's Indian wedding in Rajasthan!

Maharani Neeti, on her and Raja Niraj's first dance song:

"We dance to John Legends "All of Me." It resonated with our relationship the best, and was romantic. We had definitely considered Rihanna's "We found love in a hopeless place" but didn't end up using it!"

On her reception hair and makeup:

"Linda Chiriac did my reception makeup, and it was also very fitting for the look I was desiring!"

On the role family and friends played:

"My sister was monumental in the whole planning process, my schedule got a bit worse for 8 weeks prior to the wedding so she really stepped in... in place of me! It was so sweet of her!!! We had family from both sides choreograph and do dances for us (this was much appreciated since both Niraj and I acknowledge how much time and effort goes into putting together performances!!!)."

Additional thoughts from the bride:

"Appy Couple was a great website to use. It allowed us to publish our stories, pictures, event information, and to collect RSVPs. We did both paper and internet RSVPs and we thought it worked out very well!

For the jewelry, I wore a gold set my grandmother had bought me before she passed away during the Sangeet- Garba, which was very sentimental to me. Like most parents and grandparents, she had said she was buying this gold set to give me on my wedding day when we purchased it and I was only 10 years old. My jewelry for the wedding I bought in a jewelry store in Amer Palace while visiting Jaipur, Rajasthan, during my "wedding shopping" India trip. And my reception jewelry was simple and also purchased in India!"

Join us tomorrow for more amazing wedding moments!
