Monroe, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Studio KSD

Happy Wednesday, Maharanis! Today, we wanted to revisit one of your favorite weddings, and it is none other than Cynthia & Ankur's wedding celebrated during COVID times. This spectacular event had so much repercussion, and you all loved it so much that we couldn't wait to share the jaw-dropping film captured by Studio KSD with all of you. Right from the start, we have to say that this intimate event, already featured in our Main Blog and our Best of 2020 Magazine, is one inspiring and romantic story you don't want to miss. So let's check it out together! From the wedding ceremony officiated at the Thompson Park to the intimate reception party, everything was impressive. This unique and unforgettable event overflowed with so much beauty and flair that it still has us sighing. But we are not surprised that everything turned out to be this amazing as the talented and highly experienced team from Haneen Festivities took care of the decor that set the mood for this life milestone. And oh boy, they did a phenomenal work exceeding all expectations and delivering nothing but utter perfection. This perfection mirrored Cynthia's fabulous look, who amazed everyone after being fully glamorized by Kanwal Batool. Darlings, if you want to check more of this beautiful wedding celebration, hit the play icon below and get ready to be amazed by this spectacular film!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through bumble and our first date was at Cienfuegos in Manhattan.

There really wasn't one big ah-ha moment. It was a very subtle and slow change change where I felt myself wanting to share everything with him. If I was not hanging out with Ankur I found myself making a mental list of all the things I wanted to tell him. And whenever I would daydream or plan the future he was always a part of it.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
He proposed to me after a hike that overlooks the manhattan skyline in the Palisades. We love to hike together and it was a gorgeous view with just  the two of us.

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.
Ha! I planned my wedding twice! I had my venue, dress and a few vendors ready before I was even proposed to! In-fact Tina (from KSD studios) and I finalized the terms of the photo/video contract while I was on on the hike in which Ankur proposed to me. I am a type A person and I have experience planning large scale events so I threw myself right, made a list of all the things I had to do and just got started. Our original wedding date was supposed on be Oct 31st 2020, I was pretty much done planning with all my vendors booked by Jan 2020.

Then the pandemic hit and completely derailed my plans. With all the uncertainty I was losing my mind. I couldn't plan anything more a few weeks out. I had no idea how much money I was going to lose with all the deposits I had already put down. I also had to completely reimagine the wedding because it was supposed to be a 3 days affair with a catholic ceremony (my family is catholic), a hindu ceremony (Ankur's side is Hindu), mehendi etc and now multi-day affair was out of the questions.

I didn't even know what the safest way to cater this would be: can you even have open food? would the caterer even do individually packages meals? Is it tacky to hand out boxed food at a wedding? There were just so many unknowns that the vendors could not answer either. But all of my vendors were absolutely fantastic, they all worked me to make my day simply amazing.

At the end of the day, the pandemic really let me and Ankur imagine and bring to life the wedding of our dreams. All the plans from the original wedding were so formulaic, we had so many events JUST because that is what tradition dictates. Well the pandemic made us throw all the traditions out he window to create our own. We decided to move up our wedding to September so that it would not be too cold for an outdoor wedding.

With a much smaller wedding, we were able to focus on us and our guests and get a lot more people involved. My dad and I handmade the wedding signs - welcome to the wedding, table cards with names, the rustic polaroid photo board. I had my sister and best friend do a lot of the creative work (games, wedding programs, wedding hashtags). My aunt made the wedding cake and all the cupcakes. My uncles figured out how live stream the wedding so that people who could not attend can still watch the wedding. This wedding came to life because of so many people and it was simply amazing! Better than what could hope for! Even the weather that day was perfect!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Actually I had bought about 5 dresses and only used one. I had a white dress for the catholic ceremony, a saree for the hindu ceremony, lengha for the reception and a few others for the pre-wedding event. I had all the matching jewelry too!

But with the pandemic I ended up just using my big white dress. I got this dress from David's Bridal. Ankur and I had a conversation about getting married and OF COUSE I immediately had to tell my best friend that Ankur and I talked about getting married and that a proposal was gonna happen soon! She decided to book a bridal appointment at BHLDN just for fun! We got a ate brunch, got a little tipsy and went to try on dresses! It was there that I realized I loved lace and an A-line silhouette. Then it was just a matter of finding the right dress. This dress at David's Bridal had everything I wanted and it fit perfectly.

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Getting to reimagine the wedding to be very intimate. I loved adding the personal touches to everything: I worked with Lilly Mae Designed to make all the lettering so that people had something to take home with their names on it. We got custom coloring books for the kids with activities. We planned games so that everyone could be an active participant.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Everyone loved how relaxed it was. No one had to wake up at 4am to get their make up done or stay up late to practice the dances/performances. It was a very chill day, beautiful weather, great atmosphere! And we had the dogs!!! They were the best part. All the dogs were having the fun and everyone had fun playing with them. Ankur even made them pup-cakes. They definitely added to the vibe 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Honestly the whole day was just spectacular. There wasn't just one moment that I loved because so many people came together to make this day a reality. The whole thing was chaotic yet perfect. Just as it should be.

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 to cancel all other events. I spent the few days prior relaxing with my family and by best friends family. My mom made is face masks, we got our nails done, had some great food and watched movies. Ankur spent the day before playing Overwatch with his friends and playing with this nieces and nephews. It was great because we were so relaxed going into the wedding day.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Do not try to plan or control everything about the wedding especially the day of. It is just not going to happen. I thought I had everything planned then a pandemic hit. Then I thought I had everything planned again then a whole slew of things went wrong: the rain made the tables sink in the grass, the wind knocked down the ceremony arch right before we were about it start, the electricity stopped working, half our guests didn't get food, one of the dogs jumped on me and got mud on all over my white dress and the priest hit me in the face with the microphone as I was saying my vows.

Love every minute of it and don't take it too seriously. Take in all the crazy and enjoy it as much as possible. If you laugh at it, then it becomes a great story for later.

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
The cakes!!! The cake and cupcakes were made by Nirmala and she worked with me to make sure that the cake matched the decor! She hand made everything, including the fondant flowers to match the floral wedding decor. She also searched high and low for the perfect lace cupcake holders since I love lace. She also packaged the cupcakes individually so that someone couldn't accidentally cough or sneeze on the food. They looked amazing and tasted even better!

Alpharetta, GA Pakistani Wedding by MNK PRO

Good morning, Maharanis! TGIF! As you know, here at Maharani Weddings we make sure to bring you the best of the Indian Weddings and today is no exception. We are double featuring Shoheera & Mohammad's marvelous wedding celebration. First of all, we should thank heaven for the phenomenal talent of MNK Pro, who made sure to capture from beginning to the end, every detail and special moment, and created a marvelous photo gallery. And if this is not enough, on this installment, we have the visual masterpiece they produced, and I am sure that once you see it, your inspiration will increase! So let me take you right away to the Atlanta Marriott Alpharetta, the ideal venue chosen by our lovebird's to celebrate their eternal union. The long-awaited day arrived, and everything was just as our lovebirds dreamed about. And we want to take a moment to admire the beauty of Shoheera, our gorgeous Maharani, who looked spectacular and stole everyone's attention. She made the right choice by trusting all of her beauty needs to Color Impressions by Saba. And to add the special touch to her already ravishing look, Beauty You Deserve created a phenomenal Mehndi Art for our beautiful bride. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below to start enjoy it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met Mohammad ("Mo") while I was doing my Master's program in Boston. He moved there for work. I was trying to be more social at the mosque, so I decided to go out with a group of people for bowling. Mo was working late that night, but one of his friends (who planned the bowling night) convinced Mo take a break and join us. That's the first night we met and hung out together.

When we met, it was an instant spark. As I got to know Mo as friends, I saw a lot of signs that pointed towards him being "the one". We got along really well, shared many of the same values and ideals in life, which for me was a rare find, and we supported each other with our goals and ambitions. There wasn't really one specific moment where I knew - I think there were lots of mini moments that confirmed that we were meant to be together through the course of our relationship.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We both come from a traditional family! So there was no proposal. We had a very traditional engagement ceremony with our family and friends, complete with the ring exchange, dinner, and dancing.

He did surprise me with the most amazing date night, with dinner at the same place as our very first date, a walk through our favorite neighborhood, and dropping down on one knee to ask me to marry him.....A MONTH BEFORE our wedding. I guess all the hints I dropped about wanting to be proposed to post-engagement really worked.

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.
Wedding planning was stressful because I was planning a 3 day wedding in Atlanta from Boston, but I started very early. I secured the venue, decorator, photo/videographer and caterer 10-11 months before the date. I relied mostly on word of mouth - vendors I knew have done an exceptional job in the past. I looked through Instagram and Facebook to see their work as well. I had a list of priorities where I knew I couldn't compromise on: food was a big one. At a desi wedding, the only thing that your guests care about is food. Photo/video was another priority because that's all that would be left to look at once the big day was over.

I will say, if I had to plan my wedding all over again, I would not change a single vendor. They were all so amazing to work with and they were truly amazing people that I got to know during that year of planning.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Most girls have a vision of how they want their dress to look like years and years in advance. I just knew I wanted my dress to be the traditional red. I had a few ideas (long top, skirt) but I was very open to other ideas. I traveled to Pakistan for my wedding shopping and relied on word of mouth about which designer would be the best one for me. The first (and only) place we went to was PLK (they're super well known in Pakistan), and that's where I got every single outfit designed (from scratch) for myself. Because I didn't have any specific idea or vision for the dress, I was able to mix and match designs, fabrics, shades of color, and styles for every inch of my wedding dress.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
THE FOOD. To this day, we have family and friends talk about how AMAZING food was at our wedding. I'm so glad I went with Asma's Cuisine. They catered my engagement dinner and I knew that day that they would be the only ones that would cater my wedding.

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 a very traditional 3 day desi wedding. The first day was mehndi, second was pithi/haldi + sangeet, and the third day was Nikkah in the morning with a reception in the evening.

I didn't have too many ideas for my decor, with the exception of the backdrop for sangeet and reception. Yasmin Khan of RoyalDekors really helped bring out my creative and visionary side and added her own experience and input to come up with decor that would look unique and beautiful for each event.

The dances at the sangeet were another favorite moment. Mo and my friends and our cousins did a 45 minute sequence of dances and a skit that portrayed our love story. We had a cousins/siblings dance for both sides, a girls dance, a guys dance, and a ShoMo dance followed by the skit.

Reception was quick because I really wanted to have a large amount of time dedicated to open dance floor. After our entrance, we had our first dance, cake cutting, speeches, and then we played the shoe game - you know, the one where we sit back to back holding one of each other's shoes as we get asked questions about each other - followed by dinner and dancing.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Start planning early. Us girls have a very specific vision of how we want our wedding to be for years and years. And if that is the case with you, it is best to start planning well in advance to secure your vendors who can make your dream wedding a reality. Come up with a list of things that you do not want to compromise on (for me, it was food and photo/video) and set your budget accordingly. I also think it's so important to try and take your wedding day one moment at a time. The day really flies by fast so enjoy it as much as you can!

Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My makeup and hair was done by Saba Jawed of Color Impressions by Saba. She was so great to work with. Because I didn't have a clear vision for each look, she really worked with me to figure out how to make each look for every event beautiful and unique. She made me look and feel like a Maharani bride.

My mehndi was done by Nikki Karimi from Beauty you Deserve and I LOVED her work. I really wanted mehndi that was very intricate and that's exactly what she did.

I also decided to get fresh flower gajray bracelets made for my sangeet night. Gardlands by Yasmin did that and I think she also did an amazing job. I showed her the color of my outfit and she made beautiful bracelets to match my outfit.

My cake was made by Nausheen Amir of Inspirations Unlimited. I asked her to incorporate my bridal lengha designs into the cake and she did just that. The cake looked spectacular and really complimented by bridal lengha.

We hope you enjoyed today's post, so make sure to visit us back on Monday! We have more for you.

And if this is not enough, an emotive film created by the talented team from Regal Palette Studio will inspire you. So don't think twice and hit the play icon below!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
How we met:
Sujit and I have a love story like no other couple. Our love goes all the way back to 7th grade. Yes, 7th grade! We are middle school sweethearts. It was right at the end of the school day in April 2005 when Sujit first saw me in the hallway as I was rushing to the debate team. Sujit later told me how taken back he was by my beauty and he was trying to think of an excuse to talk to me before he missed his chance. As I was about to open the door of the staircase, he said “Excuse me, do you have 50 cents I can borrow?” Immediately he thought to himself, “Seriously, that’s the best you can come up with?” I looked at him like he was crazy and said “No, and I don’t even know you!” and then ran off to my after school activity.

We didn’t see each other again till a month later. We bumped into each other in the cafeteria during lunch. I was looking down at my phone (a flip phone at that time by the way) and on my way to buy some cookies, and he was talking to one of his friends when we both collided. We looked at each other with a smile. I said, “Hey! You’re the guy that wanted to borrow money from me!” And he smiled and said, “Can I borrow a $1” in a joking manner. I said, “You’re crazy! What do you even need it for??” He laughed and replied, “I just want some cookies!” I laughed and walked away smiling.

The friendship:
Two weeks later, our fate brought us together yet again. This time it was outside after school. I was with my best friend waiting for an after school program to start, but I was really craving an M&M McFlurry. Since we couldn’t leave, my friend and I asked one of our other friends if he could bring us ice cream from McDonald’s which was a few blocks away. We gave him money and 10 minutes later, he comes back with the McFlurry in his hand. He was also walking back and conversing with another guy. It was Sujit! Our friend walks over to us and says “Here you go! Oh, and this is my friend, Sujit”. Sujit and I smiled at each other and I said, “We’ve met”.

From there, Sujit and I became friends and couldn’t help but want to spend all of our free time with each other. We hung out during lunch and after school almost every day. I loved how kind and genuine Sujit was and Sujit loved how open and honest I was.

When we started dating:
Fast forward another month. Sujit’s math class was in the same room as my homeroom. On June 17th, 2005, when the dismissal bell rang, I was walking into homeroom, and Sujit pulled me to the side of the classroom. He took his hat off and looked into my eyes. He smiled and said “Sonam, will you do me the honor and go out with me?” We got interrupted by the math/homeroom teacher. The teacher said “Mr. Suchdev don’t you have to get to your homeroom? Ms. Kapoor please take your seat”. I looked at Sujit and said “I’ll meet you outside after school”.

Both of our hearts were racing as we impatiently waited for dismissal. Sujit was so nervous, he was worried I would say no. I was hesitant because I knew we were both very young to be dating, yet my heart was so drawn to Sujit and I knew there was something special between us.

We met outside in the courtyard and Sujit looked at me and said, “Well?”. I smiled and said, “Yes!” We hugged each other and immediately were surrounded by our friends who were clapping, how cliché, but this is what happened!

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sujit proposed to me in the most romantic way ever! We had been dating for such a long time, so he wanted to make everything perfect. Sujit told me we had to attend a very important fundraiser his uncle was hosting the day after Thanksgiving. He also told me that he had an exclusive work holiday party that same night at 48 Lounge in NYC, so I should dress appropriately to attend both events. I was so confused how to dress since one event was a fundraiser and the other was at a lounge! I asked him if we could skip the holiday party since it would be a long day, and Sujit sent me a pic of the email invite from Steve Madden. He explained this was a very exclusive invite only event and showed me the flyer and how it wasn’t sent as a mass distribution email. I decided to go with a lace black dress, and paired it with my black Christian Loubitons. Sujit suggested I paint my nails red since it is attention grabbing for when we shake hands with people at the fundraiser.

November 23, 2018 finally came and I decided to pamper myself and got my hair blown out. I didn’t know it at the time, but Sujit called my hair dresser that morning and told her to make sure she did an extra nice job on my hair because he was going to propose. He told her “Please don’t make it obvious and don’t let her find out”.

3pm Sujit met me at my house to pick me up and I noticed he looked stressed and a little disoriented. I asked him if everything was okay, and he responded, “We have to help my uncle setup a few things at the venue and we are a little late”. I didn’t know at the time but Sujit was stressed because it was frigid cold and he was planning on proposing outside. He had actually come from the venue where him, his sister, my mom & my cousin were helping setup the proposal!
Sujit and I pulled into the parking lot at The Sterlings, in Bethpage and he immediately said, "There’s no cars here because no one is here yet". I was so confused because he mentioned we were late, but I didn’t bother asking. We step out of the car, and he said “We don’t have coat check so we should leave our jackets in the car”. I replied, “Well that’s ghetto”. He laughed and said, “Let’s go cutie”. I was shivering and quickly ran inside. (It was 20 degrees that day).

Sujit grabbed my hand and said, “It’s this way”. As we were walking to the hall in the back, he told me I looked so beautiful. We arrive at the hall, and he pushes the door open and the song “Differences” by Genuwine started playing (our song from 7th grade). I was so confused because there were photographers and a setup that looked like a proposal and I looked at Sujit & said, “Is this for me?” He smiled and said, “Yes”. I started crying immediately. I was waiting for this day for so long and my emotions got the best of me. Sujit walked me down a white carpet with purple rose petals, and purple balloons everywhere. (Purple is my favorite color.) He picked out the most romantic sonnet from Shakespeare and read it to me during the proposal. He popped the question with the most gorgeous cushion cut diamond ring and I was hysterical. I said, “Yes!” and we popped rose champagne (my favorite). Sujit planned out every little detail and I was so ecstatic. After finishing the glass of champagne, he turned to me & said, “I have another surprise for you”. I said, “What!?” Sujit said, “It’s outside”. He took my hand and led me outside, where there was an aerial banner flying around which read, “SONAM, I LOVE YOU. WILL YOU MARRY ME?” I was in shock because of how perfect this proposal was.

After taking our pictures with the photographer, I called my mom in excitement to tell her the good news. I told Sujit I wanted to go home to show her the ring but Sujit kept stalling. We made 3 stops before he finally took me home. I open the door and heard people scream "Congratulations!". It was my family and Sujit’s family all at the door. At this point, I understood why Sujit was stalling. He was stalling so my mom had enough time to get the family together to celebrate the big moment.
Fast forward a few hours, we say goodbye to everyone so we can drive into the city for the holiday work party. I was so sad I couldn’t hang out with my cousins longer, but knew this party was important to Sujit so I didn’t complain. We reached the city and parked a few blocks away from the lounge. As soon as we arrive, Sujit tells the hostess, “We’re here for the Steve Madden Party”, and she took both our coats and led us to the back. Out of nowhere a bunch of people scream “CONGRATULATIONS!” I was so caught off guard. Sujit gave me yet another surprise and invited all our friends out to celebrate with us. I said, “But what about the Steve Madden party!? There was a flyer, I’m so confused!” He said, “I had to do something to keep you surprised!” We partied all night with our friends and it was the best ending to the most perfect proposal!

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.
Don't let anyone tell you planning an Indian wedding in one year is enough time! Sujit and I got married exactly one year from the day he proposed, and boy did it feel like crunch time! It takes a village.

We looked at a few different venues, but ultimately fell in love with The Crest Hollow Country Club because of how well maintained it was and we loved their customer service and how attentive they were to our wedding needs.

I struggled with finding someone for hair and makeup because the MUA I originally wanted (I won't mention any names) was very rude and unaccommodating. After this bad experience, my wedding coordinator, Arun from the Detailed Affairs Team, suggested Makeup by Khadija. She was an absolute doll and I ended up becoming friends with her after the wedding. I loved every look and would definitely recommend her to all future brides!

My outfits were all from India and my mom found designers for us to work with to create the perfect sangeet, wedding and reception outfits for the wedding of my dreams! The sangeet and wedding lenghas were from Madame Exclusive and my reception dress was from LaPalette.

Our floral and decor, which was stunning for each and every event was from Stylish Events NY. Kashi, the owner, took the time to sit with Sujit and I and really understood our vision of how we wanted each event to look. My favorite decor was for the wedding ceremony. We went with the "Maharani Mandap" (how fitting) and had a platform catwalk for our walk down the isle.

For my henna, I knew I wanted Henna by Inder as soon as I saw her Instagram page. That was probably one of the easier decisions in the planning process. Inder did an amazing job and was very fun to chat with while she did my bridal henna.

We chose DJ USA to DJ all our events and they rocked the party! Sharad was amazing and very hands on during the planning process and everyone on the team was so professional. They DJ'd our engagement party as well, and we plan on using them for future events.

For our photos and videos we ended up going with Regal Palette Studio. I found them on Instagram and called and spoke to Hershey over the phone, and instantly knew they were the right fit. I appreciated his level of professionalism and patience when answering all our questions. Wedding planning is a very stressful process, but becomes easier when you have vendors who truly care about you. Sujit and I were very happy with RPS' work, and would book them again for future events.

Our catering was from Beneres and we are so happy we went with them. Our guests still tell us about how much they loved the food at each event. For the reception, we had specialty desserts from The Paanwala and oh my goodness... those paan shots were amazing! Worth every penny!

One week before our wedding, I came across @Inthedetailnyc Instagram page, and I am so happy I did. I worked with Manisha to create our wedding welcome sign and our signature drinks bar signs. She was very professional and was able to deliver my signs in just 3 days. The signs added a special touch to our wedding.

Shopping for our wedding bands was my favorite part. We worked with New York Diamonds, Inc. in the diamond district to customize beautiful matching wedding bands. My husband also bought my engagement ring from them. Anu and Neha are absolutely amazing and were very patient with us during the process.

Last, but not least, our wedding and reception went so smooth and without a hitch thanks to The Detailed Affairs team. Arun and his team were on top of everything! Without a doubt, I know if we didn't hire them, Sujit and I would've been so stressed. All our guests asked how we were so calm and looked stress free during the wedding, and it was all thanks to Arun and his team. I would recommend them to all future brides!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I was saving up my vacation time for the wedding and honeymoon, so my mom went to India and did all my wedding shopping for me. She has great taste so I trusted her with picking all my outfits and jewelry. I always knew I wanted to wear a red lengha, but my mom did one better and helped me design a custom lengha with a beautiful matching veil. It was stunning and the jewelry she picked was equally as beautiful. From the gorgeous pink veil, down to the custom heart shaped latkans, the lengha was absolute perfection.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
EVERYTHING! We still get calls and messages about how fun it was. Our guests told us how much they loved the food at each event, our farewell vidai (in a helicopter), and the performances at our Sangeet!

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
1. Our first look was so special and the moment was very precious. It was an emotional high and both Sujit and I teared up in joy when we first saw each other. I will never forget the twinkle in his eye when he saw me, his bride to be, moments before our wedding.

2. Our vidai was a special moment for us because we had a farewell in a helicopter. It was the first time Sujit and I flew in a chopper and it was so fun after such a serious goodbye to my family and loved ones. It was special to be with my husband and start the next chapter in our lives together flying away in a helicopter. How cinematic!

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.
The Sangeet was so special because of all the performances. My cousins, Sujit's siblings and cousins, my mom and aunts, Sujit's groomsmen, and me and my bridesmaids all did performances. Sujit's family even did a cute skit with all of them dancing together. We really felt like we were in a Bollywood movie!

I especially loved our look for the Sangeet night. Sujit and I wore matching green and silver outfits and everyone told us we looked like a King and Queen that night. My lengha was sparkling and the glam makeup and hair was the stunning finishing touch.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't let the stress get to you! Easier said than done, but remember that this moment doesn't last forever. The wedding week especially, will fly by so fast and in the blink of an eye, it's all over. Try to enjoy every moment, and leave the stressing to everyone else. I am so grateful for my mom and maid of honor (my cousin Nikeeta), because they really worked hard to make sure I enjoyed every moment and that I didn't get wrapped up in any drama or wedding politics!

We have more for you, so if we inspired you today, wait to see what we have prepared for you tomorrow. You will love it!
