This girl is a diva, (no I'm not just praising her ) she actually won a Beauty pageant, where I was her fellow contestant. There are few people who are so gorgeous and down to earth like her. Girls, meet Raka, the the Real Beautiful Bengali Bride.
Raka is a friend of mine from those beauty pagent days. And when she got married to her high school sweetheart ( isn't it soo cute and exciting) I had decided to feature her here in the blog. Because I love her and because we all love everything related to weddings, brides, shopping... :D
So here is a small interview of Raka where she answered all my questions related to her wedding.
Me : so, tell us the story. How did you two meet?
Raka : I met koustuv through a common friend....I remember I quarelled with him on the first day....later we became friends...he never proposed me officially..:P
Me : Haha, really?! Well, where did you buy your sarees from?
Raka : I bought all my attires from different shops...for exmple.. I bought my saree for marriage ceremony from Adimohinimohan Kanjilal (Kolkata) ...from Anand i bought my saree for reception. Then I bought sarees from Tolaram..but most of my sarees are from Anand
and... I haddecided what to wear,from where should I buy etc right from the day my marriage was fixed :D Afterall I was excited!
Me : Who were your makeup artists?
Raka : For marriage day Sarmili halder did my makeup and for reception I booked Nanda.
Me : Who was your photographer in your wedding?
Raka : My uncle knew some photographers from Kolkata tv personally. So they only covered my full wedding.
Me : where did you buy your jewelleries from? And who chose them?
Raka : Jewelleries were from p.c chandra and Anjali jewellers. Well my mom, granny and i chose all my jeweleries . And my hubby chose the special diamond ring which he gave me :)
Me : That's great! Please share some tips for all the brides to be :)
Raka : Well what will I say? After all I am only a new bride :D But still firstly i wanna tell all brides to take care of themselves. Make a routine for what to do and what not to do. Take care of your skin hair and body. Do exercises if you have to shed extra kilos :p You have to drink lots of water & vegies if you want to glow on your wedding day..start doing facials and body messages....take some hairspa. :)
Me: Thank you so much Raka for sharing these wise words with us. I hope the brides to be are taking notes . And thank you again for all the pretty pictures :)
