Today, after three-weeks, I would be officially be Mrs. 🙂 It’s been almost a year since I first announced Our Love Story on the blog. Man, did those last 11 months just flew by ?
Realizing that it’s just 20 days to go, I feel totally freaked out. Probably because I still have so much to do ! A lot of big things are out-of-the-way but the tiny important things are still there. I feel extremely blessed to be surrounded by lovely people who have taken a lot of weight off my shoulders.
Venue + Decoration :
Since the wedding is going to be in Pune, we’ve selected a place which is closer to our house.
All Most of the planning is done from our side as the guy is from Mumbai and anyways, I already know how I want it to be like. You can read more about the Venue + Decoration here. I’ve also thought of including sky lanterns on my wedding day. You can read about it here.
Bridal Lehenga :
Have you met a bride you bought her wedding outfit in just a day or an hour flat ? No ? Meet me then. 😛 Haha.. Read my Bridal Lehenga story and checkout out the pictures here.
Initially, I had thought to do my makeup myself but later I realized I won’t be able to do it. With so many thing on my mind, I will surely make myself a mess and I definitely don’t wanna risk it on my wedding day. So, I am going to get my makeup done by an amazing Makeup Artist from MAC. I got a couple of makeup trails done but didn’t like any. 🙁 I will be getting one more trial done next week and I hope that’ll be it. I am thinking of getting a soft gold smokey eyes with a hint of pink on the crease with red or bright pink lipstick. What do you think ?
Other Function Outfits :
By other functions, I meant my Mehendi and Haldi outfits. Well, I still can’t make up my mind for these two outfits. I am confused between a saree / dress or something semi casual ? Err.. Can you help ?
My Mum says that I am the most chilled out bride ever ! Lol ! I bought my entire trousseau in just 2 days.. Actually, I would call myself rather organized than chilled out. I had prepared a list of everything I want and I knew where to pick them up from. That made it a lot more easier.
Pre-Bridal Ritual :
Honestly, I had decided to spend half a month in a Salon to get myself pampered. But now I know it’s a lot to ask for. I just couldn’t find time to visit a Salon. Just yesterday, I got my appointment fixed for the Pre-Bridal Ritual. That would basically include waxing, bleach, threading, head massage, mani – pedi and an amazing facial for the bridal glow. 😉 Also, I have been applying a lot of home-made face packs recently. I also got my hands and legs bleached at home last week.
I was very adamant about wearing Kundan jewellery with big stones and nothing else. Even though I bought my wedding lehenge within an hour, it took me days to finalize my jewellery. I will be getting it sometime next week and will share pictures with you guys. 🙂
I’ve been too lazy to move my bum to the gym hence I am struggling to lose my weight. I have started doing some basic workout at home and will be following an intense diet starting from tomorrow. I hope it’ll work. 🙁
Lingerie Shopping :
Every time I went for shopping, I was too embarrassed to enter a lingerie store with so many ppl with me. I’ve left it till the end. I am going to go there alone to avoid any embarrassing situation.
It’s Aalhad’s best friends wedding on 13th and hence we can’t go anywhere before that’s done. 🙁 So, we’re flying to Koh Samui on 15th Morning for 5 Days. 🙂 It is beautiful, isn’t it ?
Phewwwww ! Is there anything I am left with ?
We’re definitely down to the wire, but I have faith everything will come together on the day. And if it doesn’t? Who cares! I’m marrying the man of my dreams – that’s the important part anyway.
Any last minute tips for a bride who is just few weeks out?
