Anil & Payal's Wedding in Pune, India
When a school’s ex prom King & Queen met via a relative, their love began to blossom. Here’s the story of the bride Payal, in her words, and her love Anil.
How we met:
We were both in IHS (ex-prom king & queen), but we never spoke or knew each other back then. Got connected online through my elder sister, Novina and started talking over Skype.
It was stressful as it was the first time we were figuring it all out. We did have a wedding planner from JP events in Mumbai who helped us out. But overall there was a lot to do anyway.
Feelings on the Big Day:
I was a bit tired by the wedding day after two entire days of functions and dressing up. I was calm even when we couldn’t figure out how to place my dupatta since my outfit was very heavy. I needed one person to carry the lehenga with me to the stage. I wouldn’t say I was scared or nervous though. Was just going with the flow I guess!
I got my lehenga from Jaipur, two outfits from Mumbai and three outfits from Dubai. Wedding shopping was honestly a bit stressful, mainly because it was too time-consuming.

We decided on Corinthians Resort simply because it was cost-effective & a gorgeous destination resort.
Performers and Performances:
Our family curated a skit, wherein my siblings and Anil’s cousins recorded a humorous version of our story. There were several dance performances as well.
