Questionnaire

How would you define a wedding? A heartfelt celebration with friends and family to mark the event of two people in love who have decided to live together as family .. A once in a lifetime occasion..that marks a rolling stone in your life.

Do you believe in the idea of getting married?

Traditionally yes... But times are changing! I also equally accept the concept of a live-in before marriage.. as failed marriages can cause great damage in every department of life. So I feel that a couple should be practically pretty sure that they can live and adjust together for a lifetime before getting married legally. Personally I may not go for a live-in but I would get to know the guy for a good amount of years before I take the big decision of getting married to him and being a part of his family.

Who was your first crush?

GOURMET GIFTING

Weddings are memorable moments. Weddings in India are no less than a carnival and when you start a celebration on a high note, you wish to end them on a high note too. Ideally, we would want them to last forever, for the bride and groom, but also for their family and friends. Return gifts are one way of making this happen. And according to me the best way to do it is by sending your guests back home with a beautiful pack of gourmet gits pack. Obviously, prestigious weddings call for prestigious return gifts such as gourmet products.

ADORN YOUR WRISTS

There is something so timeless about a wrist jewellery – no wonder they’re often gifted at festivals and weddings. Bangles, kadas, cuffs or bracelets are the most popular forms of jewellery. According to Abhishek Kajaria, Owner/ founder, Avama Jewellers, “The staying power of the wrist jewellery speaks volumes.
