Our beautiful bride Aishwariya tells us how she planned for her engagement.Read on to know more.
For my engagement I picked my saree from @pothys# and the saree from the groom’s side was from @a-s-babu-sah#, Kanchipuram. The jewellery for my first saree was from @jaipur-gemsjewelrywatches# in Chennai. The minute I saw this neck piece, I fell in love with it. It was a very unique design, something I have never seen before. The diamond set from the groom’s side was from TARA in Coimbatore.
The makeup for my engagement was by Viji, @bronzer-bridal-makeup-artist#. I have seen her work before and my sister also suggested her name. She did such a great job and I loved the way I looked. Photography was by @photo-kathaas# . Again I have seen their work because they do photography for most of our family functions. I have always liked their work so I decided to book them for my engagement as well. My mehendi was by Nazima from Madurai.
The fun part of the engagement was when I had to greet my fiancée with Vanakkam. Although this is a very common ritual, it was quite hilarious for me to do it because we have literally grown up together. The other one was his entry to the hall where a few of his uncles carried him all the way to the stage. This was a lot of fun to watch.
The only beauty regime I followed was from my mom’s very own kitchen. It was strawberry with glycerin which I applied on my face and washed off after 20 minutes to get that glow!!
