How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Mayur and I initially dated when we were 15/16! We stayed friends after that for many years and always bumped into each other at random social events. Life happened and we reconnected again after I turned 30 and it was an instant connection. We had the same values and morals and instantly fell back in love again. Our first date was at a vineyard and we knew fate brought us back together for a reason.

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.
Unlike other brides I hated the part of "planning". It was something that gave me a lot of anxiety because I wanted everything to be perfect. I had a vision in my head but had a hard time putting that down on paper. My husband who is a creative genius helped out tremendously in this department and pretty much executed all our ideas to our vendors. As our wedding was going to be on Long Island we had to find venues that could hold the amount of guests we had attending ( 800 +). We went with The Garden city hotel, Hyatt Regency and Crest Hollow country club. My hair and makeup was done by Kanwal Batool and her amazing staff - She has always been a dear friend to me so that was the one thing I was certain about. The Decor and theme we worked with House of Dipali ( Kiriba Floral) and Stylish Events of NY to execute the different visions we had for each event. They were an incredible help. Last but not least our attentive wedding planner Artistic Affairs ( Jharna) was there from the first moment to the last. She really gave us so many unique ideas and helped plan to perfect, we could not have had such beautiful executed events without her and her team!

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
All my Indian outfits were custom done by Mom in India. I wore two different sarees for the wedding ceremony and they were custom made on the handloom. My mom actually picked out all the threads and warping and they were weaved by the weavers. Fun fact - I did not try on any of my Indian outfits till the day of each event! I trusted my moms choices and they all came out perfect. My reception outfit was an american white dress covered in swarvoski crystals. My family and I traveled to California to Karoza Bridal to pick it out as I fell in love with their designs on instagram. I initially envisioned myself in a mermaid gown but after spending hours there my mom pulled the perfect princess gown that I fell in love with as soon as I tried it on. Once again I guess its true, Moms know best.

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
The most special moment in our wedding was the first dance. My close friend Breanne actually sang our first song and recorded it and sent it to us all the way from Spain. She was unable to make the wedding but its something that my husband and I will cherish forever. We were serenaded with the most beautiful voice as we were dancing ; We truly felt there was no one else in the room as we danced.

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.
Our sangeet night was filled with so much laughter and dancing. We had so many people that performed and took their time out of their life to add something special and memorable that we can remember, we will always hold those dances and songs close to our hearts. I also wanted to do a combination of songs dedicated to my grandmother, Mom & dad and my in laws. It was something I always wanted to do and I am glad I had the opportunity to do that.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don't sweat the small things! So many things are going to go wrong and not as you planned but just remember this is the start of the rest of your life with your perfect love and that is what's important.

Stick around, we have tons of inspiration prepared for you tomorrow!

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis! You know that we only have the best of the best here in Maharani Weddings, and today's featured gallery, thanks to the marvelous visual talent of Rizwan Ghumro Studios, is everything you want out of a gorgeous couple like Maria & Osama. Maryam Islamic Center and Chateau Crystale were the venues of choice for the pre-wedding festivities, and the exclusive Signature Manor was chosen to host the long-awaited ceremony. Not to mention the fantastic wedding reception hosted at the Grand Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria. And each place was looking totally fabulous, to say the least! Everything was looking at its very best, thanks to Dream Decors Design House, who was behind the floral and decor! You totally know you are about to enter a wonderland of style when they are involved! Such talent! But what struck me the most was our Maharani's fashion sense and choices. She made the right call by trusting Fashion Face for her beauty needs. What can be more beautiful than a Maharani on her wedding day? We agree, nothing! Such an enchanting bride, of course, deserved the wedding of her dreams. Want to know what this jubilee is all about? Then head down to our gallery of the day and see it for yourself! Beware! Massive amounts of glam and romanticism are to be expected! I bet you will get tons of inspiration.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met through a mutual family friend and our first date was at Grimaldi's Pizzeria (even though I don't like pizza but I couldn't tell him no). I knew he was "the one" because he was very chivalrous and even offered me his sweater on our first date.

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.
Overall, I enjoyed planning my four-day Pakistani wedding. I already knew which vendor I would choose for my hair & makeup so I really didn't have to "shop" around too much. All of my outfits were designed and purchased from boutiques in Pakistan which allowed me to customize bridal dresses for each day. The groom's side and the bride's side worked together to establish a unique decor theme that captured each event in its own unique way.

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I wanted an antique gold and dark red wedding dress. I worked with Samsara Couture House to design my ideal bridal outfit.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Our guests loved the decor and the catering for each day. They had so much fun dancing and celebrating our special 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.
The reception (Valima) was hosted by the groom's side and all of our guests loved the elegance of the decor and the delicious food.

Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Make your dream come true. Whatever wishes and wants you have, make sure you obtain them since this is a one-of-a lifetime experience.

We can't wait to show you what we have prepared for tomorrow. So, please visit 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.
I found most of my vendors through Facebook and Instagram. Social media is great because you can preview a vendor's work before making a decision. The first thing I did when we set our date was reach out to hair and make up artists and started looking at venues. I was lucky to get the hair and make up artists that I wanted. Finding venues for all three days of our wedding was a bit stressful as venues book up really fast. Thankfully we were able to get venues that we liked and were within our budget. I did feel overwhelmed and looked into getting a wedding planner. I found Nida Khan from Red and Gold Events on Instagram and after our phone consultation I just knew I needed her! She made me feel less stressed and gave me great advice and recommendations for vendors. After talking to Nida I started booking all the other vendors such as catering, photographer, decor, mehndi artist, etc.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
My family and I went to England to shop for my wedding. I knew from the beginning that I wanted my bridal dress to be red and gold. We had 3 days of shopping planned in three different areas. As we started shopping, I got overwhelmed because there were so many different options. But the very first dress I tried on was the one! Originally I wanted a red dress with gold embroidery but this dress was all gold with a red dupatta and just so beautiful.  When I put the dress on and looked in the mirror I was just like "Wow, I feel like a bride!" My family loved the dress too! We still shopped around for another 2 days but nothing compared to the first dress and in the end the first dress I tried on was the one I bought.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
I enjoyed the whole planning process. From looking for vendors, to meeting with them to discuss details, to shopping for my dresses and jewelry. But I think the most enjoyable part was going for the hair and make up trials!
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
The earlier you start planning the better. Venues and vendors get booked up really fast so if there's certain vendors you know you want you have to make sure you contact them as soon as you can.
 
Getting a wedding planner/day or coordinator is definitely worth it. Nida and her team from Red & Gold Events really helped take the stress away from me and my family during the wedding events. My parents and sisters were able to enjoy the wedding and mingle with the guests while Nida and her team made sure everything was going as planned.
 
Be organized. Getting a wedding planning binder or make you own. I made my own wedding binder and this helped me organize the details of all my events. It made it easy to see what has been done and what still needs to be done.

If our first installment inspired you, you will love the upcoming post as we will unveil the phenomenal outcome from this event.

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Vineeth and I met when I interned in Seattle for Boeing one summer and he was already working for Amazon. We met while we were out with friends and got drinks together shortly afterwards. We hung out almost everyday that summer and continued our relationship even after I went back to school. We did long distance for two years and once I graduated I moved to Seattle for work! I knew he was the one when he came over to my parents house for Diwali dinner and met my grandpa. My grandpa was one of the most important people in my life and once I saw how he loved vineeth I knew he was the one.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Vineeth had my family and closest friends fly out to Seattle to surprise me. He took me to our favorite park in Seattle (South Lake Union Park) and proposed while my family and friends hid in the bushes. Afterwards everyone came out and then we went on a boat cruise around Seattle for dinner! When vineeth asked me he showed me a drone video he had filmed on his last trip to Hawaii. He had “Marry me BAEdi?” written in the sand and the drone flew up to show the quote.
 
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.
My mom is a wedding planner in Detroit (Utsav Planners) and took care of everything for our engagement party! Everything went so smoothly that vineeth and I barely stressed. I knew the venue I wanted had to be the MGM due to the elegance of their ballroom. Since it was an engagement party the ring theme worked perfectly and all the decor followed. When we walked in to the ballroom the first time our minds were blown at how regal and beautiful it all looked.
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I went shopping in India for my outfit and found a few I loved. My Chaachi (Mira Bedi) is a designer and had my favorite outfit made for me and surprised me with it. The best part about it....it had pockets! I didn’t lose my phone the whole night.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
My favorite part of the planning was the decor and seeing the ring theme come to life in person! Going from hearing ideas and concepts to seeing it in real life was so much fun.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the dancing and decor. Everyone was in awe when they walked in to the ballroom.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
When we did the engagement Shagan on stage and vineeth’s mom gifted me the dupatta and she put it on me.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the party! Once it gets going nothing else matters, dont stress and have fun.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My mehendi was done by Henna by Krupa and it came out so dark and it was gorgeous.
