Amit & Novina's Wedding in Dubai, UAE
Amit and Novina met randomly at a party and their lives changed. Find out how their chance meeting turned into a lifelong union in Dubai, UAE.
How we met:
We met at a party in Mumbai and randomly started speaking to each other and hit it off instantly!
The entire wedding planning process was stressful but in the end, everything went smoothly. My family helped me plan the wedding, while we got some ideas from the internet and a few suggestions from our relatives and friends.
Feelings on the Big Day:
I was nervous while planning and arranging the details of the wedding. During D-day, I was kind of numb, but was just going with the flow because my sisters kept reminding me to stay calm as they were there to handle everything. Just before the wedding, I was being controlling and critical of small things, mainly because I felt the pressure of maintaining a certain standard for the functions, as I wanted the best for my Big Day.
The material for my bridal lehenga and the other outfits, including my trousseau, was from my dad’s shop, which I got stitched from a designer in Dubai. Mostly all my stuff was from Dubai, as shopping here was pretty smooth – I had a set designer whom I trusted and the materials from my dad’s shop were amazing, so that helped!
