“We were out for a fabulous 6 course meal and I was certain he was going to propose after dessert. He excused himself and went to the washroom. I knew this was going to be it. I texted my friends immediately. They told me not to get my hopes up. I didn’t listen.
This was it, I was going to be engaged! He returned from the bathroom. Nothing happened! I was disappointed.
When we walked into our hotel room it was not the way we had left it. It had been completely transformed! The sun had set so the Sydney Harbour was lit up!
There was a panoramic view of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House from the window. There were rose petals everywhere and music playing. A table full of my favorite desserts. A bottle of Champagne. And a ring. There was a ring.
Before I could even take it all in, he was on one knee. I knew it! We spent the night celebrating with my closest friends, the same friends that helped him organize it all.”
Suhki also shared her wedding experience with Indian Wedding Buzz.
Q: What was the inspiration behind the wedding & reception theme?
“We wanted everything to be classic and simple. So when we looked back at our pictures in 30 years, we would smile. Not look at them and think ‘What was I thinking wearing that color?'”
Q: What was the most fun part of wedding planning?
“The dress rehearsals, and the photo shoots. We felt like celebrities!”
Q: What was the biggest challenge when it came to planning your wedding? How did you tackle it?
“Time management. We both wanted to be 100% involved in every aspect of our wedding planning. But we also had full time jobs. This became difficult but we managed to divide and conquer! This can only work if you trust your partner’s judgement. Lucky for us, that was not a problem,” the bride recalled.
Q: What advice would you give to newly engaged couples about wedding planning?
“Start early. As early as possible, she said, “This reduces the stress levels closer to the wedding date. Make a list and work through it. Have both families on the same page early on in the planning process.”
