“It is called falling in love because you don’t force yourself to fall in love, you just fall.”
Ramyaa and Prabu’s love story began back in the Orkut days. They became friends from strangers and eventually fell in love. Their eight year journey is engrossed with beautiful memories that they will cherish forever.
Their wedding dates were finalized back in April 2016, giving them ample time to plan and enjoy the whole process. They quickly decided upon the venue and the caterers. Their wedding took place at the Rama Mandhiram Mandapam at Nanganallur, Chennai. The whole wedding was a grand and traditional affair. They had to make sure the food and hospitality was top notch. They booked Vinayaka Caterers.
“We were really impressed by Zero Gravity’s creativity, customer service and their album quality. They even gave us additional inputs about décor and pre-wedding shoot venues” said Ramyaa.
The next big step was to book the make-up artist for her big day. With so many amazing artists available, this can be a confusing task. Eventually she decided on Arupre Makeup Artist and had absolutely no regrets! They dozens of complements she received on her big day pumped Ramyaa with joy.
“Archana didi did my make-up for both the wedding and the reception; she is a perfectionist. She made me feel like a diva for my reception and totally ethnic for my wedding” said Ramyaa.
The invitations were customized by Ponz Happy Life Creations. With their love story in mind the couple decided to share their love for social media and got a Facebook themed invite with the cutest caricature of them inside it. Isn’t this invite giving you goals?
And now coming to the most exciting part ‘Shopping’! Ramyaa was very excited for this and seeing the pictures, we can imagine why! A good sixteen months in hand, gave Ramyaa enough time to explore and choose the right outfits for every ceremony. Here’s a small list of all the shopping she did and from where.
- Viratham -Copper sulphate blue silk from Vara Mahalakshmi , Kancheepuram
- Engagement Saree 1 – Bottle green with red silk from Kala Nikethan
- Engagement Saree 2 – Honey with teal silk from RMKV
- Reception – Fanta Orange Evening gown from Diva, Nungambakkam
- Oonjal Saree – Mango yellow with pink and green dual border silk from Babu Shah, Kancheepuram
- Muhurtham – Maroon 9 yards silk from Nalli
- Grahapravesam – Red Samuthrika silk from Pothys
- Nalangu – Parrot Green Samuthrika Silk fromPothys
This should give you a fair idea of where you should head for shopping for your big day. Ramyaa’s wedding day blouses were designed by Mabyo Fashions in Nanganallur and others from Roy N Rich in Nanganallur. Doesn’t her Oonjal blouse look extraordinary? The wedding blouse was a simple puffed sleeve with the tassels holding the initials of the couple.
All the jewelry that Ramyaa flaunted was purchased from Sri Swarna Prabhu Jewelry at Mylapore, Chennai.
With the wedding being a traditional affair, Ramyaa chose to wear an Indo-western gown for her reception. The key was to keep it simple. A zircon choker with earrings, a fancy finger chain and a white metal kada is how she completed her look for the evening.
For her wedding, she dressed up with an extraordinary flair. She chose a green and pink kembu theme for muhurtam as it was a match for both the Oonjal sari and her Madisar. A choker and multiple haarams make quite an interesting combination. They Baahubali haaram defintey made heads turn. To complement her Oonjal sari that has elephants and chakras, she replaced the Baahubali chain with a longer haaram and it looked beautiful. For both the occasions she chose to wear custom made silk thread bangles and an antique ring.
Her beautiful poolajada was made by Vaagai Poojadai.
Exclusive tips from the bride!
“Do not miss the nathu and bullaku in your wedding accessories list, this small detailing is capable of increasing the richness by many folds. Also try out a bindi with golden stone border instead of white stone as this will give a subtle shine unlike the white stone which overpowers the bindi color. Lastly, don’t forget to be happy!
