We bet none of you have forgotten Leelu and her engagement blouse ever since we featured her on our engagement diaries. Her engagement had an authentic flavour and traditional touch to everything. And the chirpy Leelu is married now and we were all ears to know every detail of her Sangeet and Wedding. Leelu is one of those girls with beauty with brains and after seeing the pictures we are sure her wedding would be the talk of the town. Long story short about Pavan and Leelu's Bollywood romance.
“I met Pavan when he came to India for his sister’s wedding (Jan 2015). We had good vibes from the start and we had been in touch via texts after he left. Later in June we had a formal meeting at my aunt's place when I went to do a course in New York. We liked each other, both the families also felt we would make a good pair and the dates were set immediately. We got engaged in Feb and tied the knot on Aug 7th 2016.
How did you plan for your wedding and what all fun you had while planning?
Everything related to our wedding was well planned. Pavan got his ethnic wear custom made from Kadambini boutique. He ordered when he was there in Hyderabad for the engagement. We kind of tried to match our outfits and complement each other! One of my favourites is our Sangeeth attire, the black and white. I got my outfits matched with my jewellery and vice versa. We just wanted our guests to enjoy all the events and ceremonies as much as we did!! A cheerful, colourful and beautiful wedding with loads of fun :-) I will any day thank parents and give them the credits for the way all the functions happened.

The interest they showed to get the best output made us feel special every time we worked with them. They even surprised us with a mehndi and sangeet teaser on the day of our reception. Whole team did a great job.
Her health and beauty regime included normal diet and her daily dose of green tea. She skipped makeup on most of the days so that her skin can breathe. She had regular walks to keep herself fit.
