How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual friend and started dating in 2013.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Andrew My husband picked me up from the station after work and was taking me home to have dinner with my parents. When we pulled up to the house, the whole garden was lit up with lights, candles and roses. Andrew got down on one knee and proposed and told me he is taking me to New York the next day. 

Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I always wanted a destination wedding and it was my dads dream that I got married in his place of birth Uganda. We were very lucky that a good family friend of ours Sudhir Ruparelia owned a beautiful report in Kampala called Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort. Both mine and Andrews family travelled to Uganda to see the venue and start planning the wedding in May 2017. As soon as we got there we loved the resort and knew we wanted to get married there. Sheena Ruparelia, the daughter of Sudhir Ruparelia had experience in planning hers and her sister wedding at the resort and took the role of our wedding planner. We worked with her for most of the year on themes, entertainments, décor, food and drinks. Having a wedding in Uganda meant that anything was possible, we made sure each event had a different theme and Sheena and her team pulled out all the stops for each event. We did take a few suppliers from the UK which included our DJ Ravi Dattani part of RV sounds who had the party going every day, My make up artist - Sophia Aafreen would did an amazing job on not only my hair an make up but also my mum and sisters, and we had brilliant live singers come in from Kenya - Sodhi and team. Cake was done by Mira Marsani based in Uganda. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
The easiest part of the wedding planning was actually my outfits, my talented sister Sona Jivraj, owner and designer of Sonas Haute Couture created all 7 of my outfits along with Andrews clothes, and all our immediate family clothes. Sona has been in the business for over 10 years and has an amazing eye for what is in fashion and what suits every individual. She listened to all the ideas I had and made each outfit to perfection, her quality and design is definitely top of the range. Sonas clothes were complimented by Red dot jewels Jewellery, Tarun Thalani Jewellery and Amrapali Jewellery.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I loved planning the theme and décor for each event, as I mentioned there was not limit to what could be done in Uganda and the Ruparelia team made it all possible. I was able to be very creative with each event and make them all very unique. 

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved everything, the resort, the weather, the food and of course spending a week with family and friends. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I would say when all the guests started arriving, we had African drummers playing as all guest started arriving from all over the world. It was so nice to see everyone and the excitement on their faces. 

For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
We had 7 events which were all very different:
1 - welcome party which was an African themed party, we had Africans drummers, singers and dancers, traditional African food and amazing African  décor.
2 - Pithi - traditional pithi ceremony beautifully decorated with pink and orange colours
3- Sangeet -rajasthani theme event which an mind blowing set, I came in on a dholi which all my brothers were carrying, we had various dances and speechs at this event and Sodhi the singer from Kenya. 
4 - indian wedding - set by lake Victoria, with a red rose mandup. The ceremony was not a traditional indian wedding and was carried out by my cousin Sawan Gandesha, it was personal, meaningful and entertaining. 
5 - pool party - this was a Ibiza themed pool party. everyone was wearing white , Andrew and I came in on a boat. We had massage ladies, a live band and music on till early ours in the morning.
6 - civil ceremony - this was in a stunning location in the resort over looking the lake.
7 - reception - this was by the pool, it was decorated with white roses, candles and was a very romantic setting. we had a lovely fire work display, speeches, and a great DJ playing till early hours in the morning 

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Have a destination wedding 

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Happy to send you pictures which will speak a 1000 words.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Karan and I met on the dating app, Coffee Meets Bagel. Post Date 1, I was still unsure about Karan but decided to give him a shot. Very soon after, Date 3/4, I knew this was it. It's like they say, "When you know, you know." 
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I am all things Christmas obsessed! It was a no brainer to Karan that he'd be proposing during the most magical time of the year! With the help of Neelam's friends and family, he located a little terrace area that overlooked the Rockerfeller Center tree and St.Patrick's Cathedral where he had a mini tree, candles, and champagne set up. He also had an ornament on the tree that said, "Will you marry me?" with a ring on it. It was the perfect night! 
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Lucky for me, I had tons of help! Some vendors I knew I wanted to work with and some vendors I instantly clicked with. It helps that I'm surrounded by family and friends who were part of the Indian wedding industry which made my job a ton easier! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew I wanted a very traditional look for my bridal lengha. I definitely wanted it to be the color red but that definitely did not help narrow down my choices. Every one had different opinions on what my lengha should look like, but once I tried my lengha on, I loved it and just decided to go with it! 
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Seeing everything come together was the best part. You can plan for months/years, but finally seeing things come in the mail, or seeing the final product of something you've been working towards was the most exciting and rewarding part of the planning process. 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Definitely think the uniqueness of the different events (Welcome Holi Party, Backyard Mendhi Party, etc) is what guests enjoyed most. Each event had a different look/vibe to it and think that was something guests seemed to enjoy the most!
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
I don't know if I would describe this as "special" but the fact that every event (even outdoor events) were rained out on was definitely memorable. It downpoured during every single one of our events (even engagement shoots) and we definitely confirmed we had the worst luck. However, our family and friends did not let this get in the way of making the most out of our week. We danced in the rain during our welcome holi party, braved the rain under tents during our backyard mendhi party, and even brought the baarat indoors! 
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Welcome party- This was hosted by the groom's sister and brother-in-law. It was a holi theme where everyone was required to be dressed in white and we (the bride and groom) wore mustard yellow outfits. It was cold and rainy and every one was pretty nervous on how the day would turn out. Once the alcohol was flowing, the music was blasting, and we had delicious food in our stomachs, we danced in the rain all day. It was one of the most fun days and one that we'll never forget! 
 
Backyard Mendhi- I've always wanted to do my mendhi at my home surrounded by family. The goal of every event was to party hard and this was no different. We had different food truck vendors come in, set up a flower wall backdrop, and had our closest friends and family in attendance. The beginning of the night started in a downpour and leaky tents, but once the rain subsided, we opened up the walls of the tent, the party just grew and ended up being one blurry night! :) 
 
Sangeet/Garba- This event was all about being colorful. We wanted the music to be live (thank you Medley Entertainment! :)) and the food to be delicious! Having a mix of two different cultures (Gujarati and Punjabi), we started our night off with Garba, went into performances, and started the dance party which was the Sangeet portion of the night. There was a lot of dancing, laughing, crying (happy tears), eating, and shots involved! 
 
Reception- Because our Garba/Sangeet, Ceremony, and Reception were all in the same venue, we wanted to ensure each event felt unique. Our reception really leaned into the geometric theme. Because I didn't want a room full of just flowers, our decorators were great about bringing our vision to life. Working with Susmita from Style by Susmita, she even incorporated this theme into my dress! It included geometric shapes and tulips which represented true love. It all came together wonderfully! 
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
It's totally possible to have a beautiful wedding with limited resources and budget. Be creative and think outside the box. There's so many resources out there and ways to bring your vision to life outside of just leaning on the vendors. 
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Instead of bouquets, I had the bridesmaids walk out with frames that stated how they knew the bride. 
 
We had a hanging cake stand which hung from the ceiling (something I really wanted). 
 
Cold fireworks for the bride entrance.

We've got more on the way!
