Amrit & Jhanvi's Wedding in Mumbai, India
Amrit and Jhanvi's wedding celebration in Mumbai taught them a valuable lesson - the less you see, the easier it will be!
How we met:
We met in grad school through common friends.
The planning process was quite experimental, mainly because there hasn’t been any wedding in my family since a long time. So, we attended various wedding exhibitions to get some ideas on clothes; the jewelry aspect was pretty much sorted, as we have always opted for TBZ in Mumbai. Amrit’s mother is an exquisite diamond jewelry designer, so the engagement rings and the other sets they gifted to me were done by her.
Even though we started planning the wedding a year in advance, I did not have much time because of my profession. Hence, we used to go shopping every Saturday after work.
We wanted a swanky venue which would arrange everything for us, as we didn’t have the time to select vendors.

Advice for to-be-weds (one or two sentences):
Don’t stress out and just go with the flow! The less you see, the easier it will be, so don’t spoil yourself with choice; rather, spend the limited time you have to choose things personal to you.
