Maharani Amy on meeting her Raja and how she knew he was "the one":
"Believe it or not, Jimmy and I met on shaadi.com! We were both at the same point in life and we knew exactly what we were looking for in our future partner. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant about the meeting someone online but there was something special about Jimmy's profile and I just had to accept his 'request.' We met just 5 days after talking on the phone and it was love at first sight. He is the only person who makes me laugh and is so easy going and very family oriented. I knew right away he was 'the one.'"
On her wedding style:
"Jimmy and I are both Malu and Catholic. So we knew we wanted the traditional Catholic ceremony and incorporate our Malu traditions into the wedding. Being Catholic, I had to wear the traditional white wedding gown. Usually at Western weddings, the bride is the only one who wears white. But when I went down to plan the bridesmaid dresses, I was thinking that I haven't seen anyone incorporate white into their bridal party. So I wanted to do something out of the ordinary and had my beautiful bridesmaids match my white wedding gown. My husband and I also like bright colors so I wanted hot pink incorporated in my wedding colors as well. So in the end, my colors consisted of hot pink, white and gold. It was something different and I was happy about how it all turned out!"
On her favorite part of planning:
"The best part about planning my dream wedding was that I got the chance to go to India for a month. Both my grandmothers live in India and they are both very old so they couldn't travel for the wedding. So I headed to India to get their blessings and they also got the chance to be a part of my wedding by helping out with all the wedding shopping. I got to show them all my wedding outfits and jewelry I bought in India so I loved the fact that I could share some part of the wedding with them even though they couldn't be there."
