"Come on, come on, settle down inside my love" goes the lines of the song 'Accidentally in Love'. To love and be loved is such a beautiful feeling! Sometimes it takes time, sometimes, it's instantaneous. All it took for our IAS-prepping bride was to meet her guy, and did she get hooked or what! :)
Read on, have a look at this so-much-in-love bride take us through her wedding with so much delight! Hello World,
This is Banu here from Senjerimalai (A green unpolluted village in Coimbatore) and I got married to a software engineer.
I would love to share some of my unforgettable moments, which was my Wedding.
Before all of this, I was preparing for IAS without any intention of getting married. Those intentions changed the moment I met my Vinoth. He is charming, smart and soft at heart (he entered these comments ;)).
Engagement happened on April 11 in a traditional way. I had only two months for my marriage after engagement. When I was confused on how to select a Saree, or to choose for a makeover, my Sister Bhuvi pointed out Shopzters to me.
I just dropped a note in shopzters.com. I got a call soon from Prasitha and she helped me to fast track my preparations. My family, my Friends and my Hubby too helped a lot in choosing everything.
When it comes to marriage purchases for the Bride, the first thing that strikes us is the Saree. Everyone wanted me to go to Kancheepuram. But since I did not have much time, I went to Chennai Silks - Coimbatore. Their collection was unique and mesmerising. I took both the Reception and the Wedding sarees from Chennai silks.
For my other Reception, I chose a colorful Lehenga from Shresht@shresht-coimbatoreclothing#-Coimbatore.
Coming to jewelry, I took my wedding and reception jewelry from Joy Allukas-Coimbatore and Sree Kumaran-Coimbatore. Both had beautiful diamond collections; and I bought my traditional jewelry from @karpagam-jewellersjewelrywatches#.
For my blouse design, I chose @anya-where-tradition-meets-fashionclothing# Coimbatore.
I was very choosy while selecting my makeover artist. I browsed through many and chose Kausar (http://bridalmakeupinchennai.com/) who worked with @bridal-studio-noor# and @make-up-ibrahim#. She wowed me as well as the crowd with the makeover on all three occasions.
Vinoth loves photography, and so, after surfing through tons of sites he selected @studio-31-by-pranesh-photography#. They did not fail us in delivering our memories as photos. My Big days were held in Sri Sai Mahal, Palladam. My Appa surprised me by choosing eye catching stage decorations and mouthwatering catering services.
Catering was done by chef pottukara ayyavuh Tirupur. Backdrop and decorations were done by Rasi decorators. Since my Father in law was in politics, we had another colorful reception in Ajantha Hall, Trichy.
Amidst the many visits to Relatives home and temples, we went to Goa for our Honeymoon. We really enjoyed our stay in Planet Hollywood, South Goa.
To all the Bride to be, don’t get stressed out in choosing things. Keep calm and Visit Shopzters :). Don’t forget to wear a smile.
