Deepak & Manisha's Wedding in Udaipur, India
Deepak and Manisha's story is the perfect example of 'Marriages are made in Heaven, but celebrated on Earth!' Their 'Happily Ever After' began with great pomp at Radisson Blu, Udaipur.
How we met:
Someone has rightly said “Marriages are made in heaven & celebrated on Earth”. Our parents where the ones who united us, the “two unknown souls”. We met in Dubai and I feel very lucky to have found my Mr. Perfect! When I first met Deepak in Grand Hyatt, I believe it was an instant ‘Yes’ from both our sides.
Getting married to Deepak was the best thing that happened to me but the process was both fun and stressful. We hired Horizon WIE, an Event Management Company in Mumbai, who helped us from the beginning to the end and did a great job.
The support of family and friends can never go in vain and we were glad that they were always there for us.
Feelings on the Big Day:
The day I had always imagined from my childhood days, the day when two of us would be one, was finally here!
From morning itself, I felt a mix of emotions – on one hand I was happy that I will always be with the love of my life, on the other hand I was thinking about leaving my parents and family.
After my vows, I still remember the moment when me and my parents were crying, Deepak stood by me, even though he had tears in his eyes (mainly because he can never see me cry).
Being a girl, I love to shop and hence, it was great fun! I did all my shopping from Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur and Dubai.
Schedule of events and outfits worn on each function:
Mehndi: As it was a day function, I wore an ethereal Green & Gold Skirt with a short Choli; Deepak wore a Churidar Kurta with intricate work on his jacket
Ring ceremony/ Sangeet: I wore an Indo-Western Dress; the groom wore a traditional yet modern Sherwani
Pheras: I opted for a Red Lehenga with antique Gold embroidery; while the groom wore a Red & Golden Sherwani
Reception: I chose a Soft Pink Shimmer Evening Gown while Deepak opted for a Knights & Lords Tuxedo Suit
We decided on Radisson Blu Hotel in Udaipur as our destination wedding venue. All the arrangements at the venue were carefully handled by the event team and hotel staff.
Performers and Performances:
For the Sangeet night, we had Shadab Faridi entertaining the guests and a singer named Rahul from Goa performed at the Reception. Both the families performed a short skit for the couple.
Few words on the photographer, videographer, hair/make-up artist, bartenders and DJ:
Choose a good photographer as they would be capturing the best moments of your life. Make sure same photographer is there for your pre-wedding and wedding so that he knows the couple and obviously you don’t want the same pose. For make- up artist I would say have a trial of what hair and make- up you want so that there is no confusion last minute.
Advice for to-be-weds:
Just enjoy the moment. Do all the planning beforehand and if something does not go as per plan, don’t panic. Just go with the flow.
