The groom knew that the bride loves to sing. She had mentioned on our first date that a dream of hers has always been to sing at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.
Himat took me there for dinner unsuspectingly one night. He had arranged for Aman to sing.
“When I finished singing and the lights all came on and Himat took the mic from me and proposed,” the bride recalled, “It was so beautiful and thoughtful.”
“We didn’t have a theme for the wedding but we did want our outfits to be royal,” the bride said, “For the reception, we wanted to keep the decor simple, yet elegant.”
The couple’s second reception was more of a casual, nighttime lounge setting.
Q: What was the most fun part of wedding planning?
“Planning the wedding with my husband, sisters and best friend was really a lot of fun!” The bride said.
“We had fun exploring venue options and meeting vendors to see what they had to offer. It was also exciting to choose outfits for our wedding and pre-wedding photoshoots.”
Q: What was the biggest challenge when it came to planning your wedding? How did you tackle it?
“Our biggest challenge was time because we only had about five months to plan,” the bride recounted.
“Spending quality time with friends and family during the wedding week was something we really looked forward as many of our family members travelled from out of town to celebrate with us but five months is not a lot of time to plan a wedding.”
Q: What, if anything, was the biggest surprise on your wedding day?
“I was happily surprised with how smooth and calm the wedding day was, specially considering our time constraint,” she said.
“We were expecting somethings to go wrong but to our surprise, the day was calm and peaceful. We enjoyed every moment of the wedding.”
Q: What advice would you give to newly engaged couples about wedding planning?
“It’s easy to get caught up in the planning but remember, the wedding is only a day,” the bride said, “Marriage is a lifelong commitment and everything really starts after that day.”
Royal Reception Number Two
“Get everything done as soon as you can and don’t procrastinate. It may seem overwhelming but its really not. If we could plan it all in 4 months, it can be done!”
