How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in college through mutual friends. He once told my best friend that his next girlfriend would be someone like me. I wanted to be single and decided not to approach him because I told that same friend "he's boyfriend material." It didn't last long and every time we saw each other there was definitely a pull. We started dating but in complete denial that they were dates, so we don't even have a date that we started dating! it was the same when we fell in love. Neither of us can pinpoint when, it just happened and we just knew this was meant to be!
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I love the summer, beaches, and anything nautical. My best friends took me to Long Branch beach and I had an inkling but they did an amazing job convincing me I was wrong. One of my friends said "let's go see the sunset" and as we were walking and I was telling them a rather gruesome story about how my parrot died, they were recording me and laughing. I looked ahead and under a gazebo and in front of the sunset, he stood. I fell in love all over again and now I get to fall for him everyday :)
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 didn't dream of my wedding growing up. When we started talking about the wedding, I just knew I had to get everything in place so everyone can enjoy the wedding day. As I continued planning, we argued over small things and disagreements but at some point, I realized something very important. The whole point of the wedding was to have a successful marriage. We planned together and allowed our loved ones to take part and give suggestions. What else is a wedding if you don't include everyone and add some chaos!
All of my vendors were first time picks. My makeup and bridal hair attendants worked on me during my cousins wedding two years prior and I told them right there and then that they would be my attendants! I knew that I not only wanted talent, but I wanted people to be a part of my day and memory. My decorators went above and beyond and truly captured not just want I payed for but they added additional items the day of that they knew I would love!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went shopping in India for a month after 14 years for my wedding! I had seen a Manish Malhotra dress on Instagram that I absolutely fell in love with. When I got to India, I couldn't find a similar one and ended up buying a dress. My sister, and maid of honor, sensed that I wasn't exactly happy the way I was about my other outfits. We stayed up all night and she told me she felt like she let me down as well for letting me make a quick decision. We called first thing in the morning just as they were opening the dress for alterations and told them to hold off. I went in the next day with a clear mind and reminded myself that I was buying this dress for my wedding day and for Amit to be wowed! I chose a dress and had pleats added to the bottom of my skirt and had them make me a custom solid blouse that they had to dye. Lastly, I had them make me a specific shade of mint that I wanted incorporated into my wedding . Everything came together so beautifully!
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was seeing my family and friends often! We get so busy in our everyday lives. We truly were in awe that everyone came together to make the day special for us. It wasn't just the wedding that we will remember forever but truly the people in our lives that showed us how loved we are.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I didn't get a chance to ask all of my guests but seeing the smiles and happiness on their faces, I hope they loved the positive energy!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
After the saat phere were completed, my dad went to hug my father in law. As he went in for a hug he broke down and said "please take care of my daughter" and my father in law broke down and said, "she's our daughter too now." I gained twice the amount of love that day!
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.
Everyone knew they had to do a dance at the wedding because dance has always been a big part of my life. My parents never danced and even they went up for a quick performance! It was amazing to see how much time and effort everyone put in.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Remember that the wedding is your journey to a successful marriage. Remember that the day of is not all about all of the perfections but about how much people go above and beyond to try to make it perfect for you!
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
No cake- save the time and opt for more desserts! We did chocolate covered strawberries and it was such a hit! Pay for flowers- don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Fresh flowers will make you happy and you'll feel good- keep them by you in the morning as you get ready. If you're like me, put the entire bouquet in your bun! Cheers to love!
Congrats to Krupa and Amit on a beautiful wedding!
