I'm Swetha, I'm just done with my MBBS and my better half Vikas completed his Masters in Construction Management in the US and is now involved in his construction company with projects in Hyderabad and Vijayawada.
His dad and my dad were classmates in their engineering. Our families knew each other since then.
We both knew each other since our childhood. Vikas even attended my first birthday and the funny thing is he even attended my parents wedding! We used to meet at family gatherings once in a while. We hardly met after he went to the US. After coming back to India after 4 years we met last year at a birthday party. Our conversation started and ended with a simple hi !
After 5 months we randomly bumped into each other at a place called Hylife and even then we dint have any clue of us ending up getting married.
Like about 10 days later our parents suddenly out of nowhere got us the proposal! We were shocked! We never imagined in our wildest dream that we'll end up together.
We met for breakfast later that week. In the little time we spoke we got very comfortable with each other. things were easy for us as we knew each other already and we dint have that awkward strange feeling which everyone talks about in arranged marriages. He is the most decent guy i have come across in my life , so calm and composed! He is just the perfect guy I could ask for!
My sangeeth outfit is from Neeru's Banjara hills.
My mehendi outfit was designed by Tanuja Nimmagadda
And then coming to the sarees I chose different colours for different occasions.
I bought most of my sarees from Sai Kanchi, Hyderabad. They had a wide range of collection and this made my job easy.
My muhurtam saree was yellow with a pink blouse as that is my favourite colour.
I'm not a fan of heavy works and I wanted my blouses to be very simple yet elegant. All my blouses were designed and stitched by Tanuja Nimmagadda. She is one of the best designers i have ever met. She was very patient and we spent a lot of time on designing the stuff! The must notable is the blouse that she designed with the a pearl work for which i received many compliments.
Vikas got all his outfits designed from Sagar Tenali and Ganesh Nallari! They are well known designers from Hyderabad. They were amazing.
My gold and diamond jewellery were mostly from Tanishq and Neelkanth.
I have got my pulajada and flowerjewellery from " Pellipoolajada " I made a right choice choosing them.. they always delivered the flowers on time and they were very fresh.
I was very particular about the decor. I took care of even the minutest details be it from the design , the type and colour of the flowers to be used and the colour of the lighting in the background and everything!
Sangeeth we went on with a theme "Tollywood talkies " ! And that day was very special to me.. I proposed him asking "Will you be my hero? " and he said yes. The entire sangeeth was organised by a movie choreographer named " Basheer". For us the sangeeth was divided into two parts one of which was the routine dances and then the after party in which all our friends and cousins danced their hearts out and all of us will remember it for a very long time. It was a fun day all together.
Mehendi decor was with yellow and white warm mirchi lights along with marigold flowers! We hired mehendi designers from Shilparamam. Our mehendi was on 13th feb a day before Valentines day which remains to be a memorable day for me. Vikas suprised me with beautiful red and yellow roses along with a note saying " You have my whole heart ! Happy valentines day love " and went on his knees and proposed. I was on cloud 9.
Wedding decor we hired a movie art director named "Gangaraju " we went with antique color and used roses and chamanthi! we had paintings of " Sree Rama Kalyanam " which stood as a highlight and complimented by many.
Amongst everything.. Vikas and I spent most of our time on searching for a perfect photography team! After we met Vijay Eesam, we immediately decided we are going with him and now we can tell we took the right choice! All the events were photographed and videographed by Vijay Eesam Photography. Excellent team work , very professional and very punctual! And the pictures are amazing! We did our couple shoot in and around Hyderabad.
It's common to stress out during the wedding time.. take a chill pill! Everything is going to be fine! Everything will eventually will fall into place! Drink lots of water , keep yourself hydrated and try avoiding oil food to prevent acne and eat lots and lots of fresh fruits! This gives you a healthy and shining skin!
Boom! we had a wedding of our dreams! None of this would have happened without the help of our families and friends.
We went on a honeymoon to Maldives. It was a quick and short trip! We are planning for a long trip soon and are excited for it!
