We got engaged on 7th Feb 2017 and enjoyed our courtship period to the fullest. It was Valentine’s Day right after the Roka and I was flooded with roses, gifts and chocolates. Love all around!

Wedding Date

We decided to fix the dates in early winter, when its neither hot nor too cold. So we settled on 20th November. Luckily the weather was amazing all throughout. Winter weddings can be the most colourful ones!

Our Dresses

We went shopping together in Delhi in August and decided to match and colour coordinate our dresses. For the Big Day, I chose dark maroon lehenga from Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam in Chandni Chowk and for Nitish, we chose a sherwani in slight peach colour with dark maroon accessories from Gujral and Sons in Karol Bagh.

I really loved our engagement outfits! I wore a full flair trail cocktail gown in champagne color again from Kamal Bhai Saree Sangam; it was so graceful! The store owners had apparently got it designed from Dubai!

His engagement suit was again from Gujral and Sons, in dark blue shade. My sangeet dress was from Lucknow from  Calcutta In Style. It was a crop top and skirt and I believe this style will never go out of fashion!

My Jewelry

For the sangeet, we purchased my jewelry from Sardarji Bentex Aminabad Lucknow. They have a really good collection. My bridal jewelry was also from the same place; this time I chose Kundan jewelry with a big matha patti.

My Hair and Makeup

For the sangeet, my MUA was Sneha Charan’s Body Care in Lucknow by artist Ajay. On the engagement and wedding day, I had my hair and makeup done at Empire Luxury Salon in Agra. I got my nails done at Gunjan Nail Art Studio Lucknow.

Our Photographers

Sangeet photography was done by Makker Studio Lucknow while the  wedding photography was by Nainy Studio Agra.

Advice for other Brides-to-be

Weddings require a lot of planning; so utilize your time well and keep planning each month. It helps to keep a target of things to do; I only had 9 months so I made sure I used the time well. An important piece of advice is to shop at your hometown itself. My Delhi experience with Kamal Bhai wise was fantastic but they took a lot of time for the delivery which was nerve wracking to say the least. Also use homemade beauty products for your skin; paste of honey, lemon and coffee etc- they work wonders!
