From the bride, on her wedding style:
"Like everything in my life, I like it neat and classy. So my theme was metallics (silver and gold) and white. Luckily, my mom and I share the exact same taste; so her opinion played a huge role in picking out the decorations and setting the mood. She LOVES flowers; so we made sure there were plenty of those. And I have a deep interest in elephants. Since NY doesn't allow real elephants, we had flower elephants. To add to the zoo, my mom wanted a white orchid peacock as the central theme at the reception. It was a huge hit. Also, it was very important to me to create a clean and crisp mood in the room, which a white dance floor fulfilled. We also had a carriage for my entrance and a white horse for him."
On the planning process:
"Being a physician, I get very limited time off. So I didn't get any time off to plan and it was very difficult getting things together. But I think the best part of planning the wedding was spending time with my mom and planning together. Like I've said before, my mom and I are very close and share similar tastes. Honestly, I left most of the planning to her. She picked the decorations and my saris."
On bridal fashions:
"I am the bride who initially didn't want any outfit changes for her wedding, but ended with having three outfits the last week. We are Bangladeshi from Bangladesh; so traditional red banarasi is a must. Again, I left that to my mom to pick out and it was beautiful. The other sari, also red, I just simply fell in love with at first sight. We do not shop around much; we go to where we need to. For the saris, we went to Pashmina in Jackson Heights, NY and for my last outfit, a gown, I went to Pinky Chopra in Long Island, NY. I felt like Cinderella in all of them."
On their "song":
"Mubdiul and I had been practicing out first dance for weeks prior to our wedding. We went to a ballroom dancing school and had a dance choreographed for us to the song, 'All of Me' by John Legend. Mubdiul was in love with the song from the beginning. And I had my gown designed to flow for the dance."
On her hair and makeup:
"Classic, classic, classic. Sanjana Vaswani just gets me. She did our makeup for my sister's wedding last year, and did an amazing job at my wedding. She allows me to look like me, but just a little more glamorous. And she's quick! I would never go anywhere else!"
