Our wedding theme/colors... -There were no specific colours. Maharashtrian wedding needs brides to wear yellow for some rituals. Apart from that I chose several different colours like green, purple, red etc.

Our honeymoon… We went to Kerala.
My favourite part of the wedding day.. – Each and every moment! We will cherish it for years!
My piece of advice for other brides.. – Enjoy every moment of your wedding because it just goes by so quickly! Leave everything to the professionals. It is your day and the last thing you want is yourself or your mum and dad stressing about things!
