Which way did you and your companion met?
Who could have imagined that my friend from gym could become my fiance? We met during the time we completed our masters studies at the University of Texas at Dallas and we never thought about it again. After two years of being together We were both eager to take the next step. He surprised me with a surprise in San Francisco and got down on one knee in the month of September, 2020. After more than a year of planning the wedding We had the wedding that we had always wanted in 2022. our most beloved friends and family!
What were you and your spouse’s top priorities for your wedding?
We wanted to stay within our budget as well as enjoy the glamour and tradition of the traditional Indian wedding. My priority was the decor, photography/videography, and makeup artist. It was a big weekend for us and we wanted to select vendors that were unassailable for us. We were thrilled with the final result!
Let us know about your most memorable bridal details as well as how you came up with these.
We loved the décor because we have both loved blue since we first met. We also had the traditional exit of a rose since my husband has given me roses each month since we first started dating! We also enjoyed our private first dance it was incredibly intimate that we were enjoying the moment.
Which customs or ceremonies have you included in your wedding, and what was the reason they were important to you?
As we are both from different religions and backgrounds, it was essential to us to integrate both as they were equally essential to one another. Because Anisha (the wedding bride) was raised from Dallas, Texas, we wanted our wedding ceremony to be in Dallas. She has always desired to have an American Style- white dress wedding, which is why we planned the ceremony first. Our huge large Indian wedding included mehendi and Haldi (turmeric ceremony) as well as sangeet and nikkah, as well as reception, and the satada (goodbye dinner). We wanted to concentrate on having a fantastic time with our family and our friends.
This allowed us to divide the different categories, but we always went with our partners to each meeting and discussed budgeting together as a group.
Anisha has twins as well as an elder sister. Her older sister, Afsha, got married in Dallas in the year 2020. The whole family was involved in planning the wedding from beginning to end and this certainly wasn’t the first time they rodeo. It was certainly a lot easier when we’d already identified the vendors we wanted to cooperate with.
Pranav’s family did not have any expectations. They wanted the couple to enjoy complete autonomy in their decision-making (as as long as they invite guests).
What would you like to know that you’d known prior to starting planning your wedding?
Weddings are costly and wedding vendors make reservations early. It was extremely useful to number each of our vendor/priority lists so that we could integrate both ideas. I strongly recommend discussing budget, finances and guest list prior to preparing so that you are with the same mindset. It’s also simpler if you can find confirmation of the dates for your top vendors, and arrange them prior to making a booking.
What tips would you recommend to couples who are entering the wedding preparations?
Take advantage of every moment and enjoy every minute of it! It’s over in the flash. Wedding planning can be difficult, but it’s absolutely worth it. You’re going to share the remainder of your life with your partner and what better way to celebrate than with your family and acquaintances! Don’t focus on the little things. Things could go wrong. concentrate on the bigger parts and be happy with every second of it!
