How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
There wasn't much to it. When you know, you know.
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 had been planning for this day since I was a little girl, so a lot of what I wanted I already had in mind. It was a matter of finding the best vendors to execute my vision. I've the course of 6 months, I found my "dream team".
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew for a very long time that I wanted Farah Talib Aziz to create my mehndi and shaadi outfits. I've been seeing her work for years and I knew I wanted a very regal and traditional look for my big day. Her team nailed it.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I hope they felt involved - I had 20 bridesmaids. I hope they were fully entertained, particularly the out of town guests from Toronto. We made welcome baskets for each of their hotel rooms for when they arrived that had information on where to go, where to eat, and what to do. And most importantly, we hope our guests enjoyed the food. We put a lot of effort into determining the menu from appetizers all the way to dessert.
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The first look. So much had built up to that moment and it all felt so right.
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy every moment of it because it's over before you even realize it. Don't stress the little things - there is bound to be something that will not go your way. And lastly, eat!
