The Wedding Story Of An IPS Officer & His College Sweetheart

Date: 11/07/2018

Imagine getting a marriage proposal from a total stranger and eventually getting married to the same person. Such is the case of Sujitha and Giri Prasad. Let's hear it from the bride herself.

"Giri Prasad was my senior in college. We’ve known each other for more than 7 years. It all started with a text message from him on the ethnic day function at our college. 

After my graduation, I was posted in the same city where he was working. It was destiny!  I gradually fell in love. We were the happiest of all. Giri Prasad’s dream was to clear the Civil Service Examination. We’ve had tough times during his preparation journey, but that got us closer. After a lot of hard work, his dream came true. After he cleared the exam, he met my parents and convinced them for marriage. Can't believe I am married to an IPS Officer. We had a beautiful wedding full of happy moments.

We had three events, Mehndi, reception and muhurtham . 

After our wedding date was fixed, we booked Mandap, Makeup artist, Wedding photographers, Decorators and Caterers within a month’s time.  Trust me, once this is done, the most hectic part gets over and you can enjoy your wedding shopping.

I purchased my wedding saree from Mahaveers-The Silk People, Coimbatore. All the other sarees were from Shree Devi Textiles, Coimbatore and A S Babu Sah, Kanchipuram.  If at all you plan to go to Kanchipuram, I would suggest all the brides to plan it three months before the wedding because your parents may get busy with invitations and marriage work later on.

The reception Lehenga was from Kay - The Fashion Bay, Chennai. Other Boutiques that have good lehengas are MOKSHAA, Evoluzione in Chennai and Samyak in Bangalore.

All my blouses and Mehendi lehenga were stitched in Amarilly design boutique, Tirupur. They can replicate any design you show them. Their workmanship is good. Just don’t try new tailors at the last minute. Wouldn’t suggest that.

For a Groom, shopping is not as complex. Giri Prasad did all his shopping in Louis Philippe and Raymonds. Because of his busy schedule, we finished it off in a day.

Muhurtham antique jewelry set was from Sumangali Jewellers, Coimbatore. They have a good collection and customer service is great. You can simply find the best of varieties there. The reception diamond choker was from Jewel One, it was their ad piece. Other jewelry sets were purchased from Kirtilal,Joy Allukas, and Challani.

I purchased my muhurtham maang tika and nose ring in a wedding expo. You get everything under one roof, from fancy anklets to maang tikas, artificial flowers and even toe rings. Keep yourself aware of wedding exhibitions in your region.

Coming to the makeup artist, for engagement, it was Lucky Girl Makeup Artist. She gave a total makeover in three hours. For pre-wedding shoot, reception and wedding, it was Bridal Studio NOOR, Chennai.He makes you look flawless in pictures. For Mehendi day, it was Ranjitha from Tirupur. Everyone loved the hairdo and mehendi.

If you want minimal makeup, be very specific. A trial for hairstyle is a must, because some may not suit your face. At the end of the day, whoever be the makeup artist, a happy smile will lighten up your face.

Mystic Studios were our wedding photographers. They have amazing artists who capture your moment for life. We got a lot of compliments for our pictures, especially the pre wedding shoot pictures. Saravanan is our favourite! He’s very calm and patient. But, be it any wedding photographer, just ensure you allow some time for pictures before and after your event so that u don’t miss great couple shots.

About skincare, don’t try new products/ new parlors. All the trial to be done beforehand. Eat a lot of fruits and exercises for some bridal glow. Avoid traveling out in the sun.

We still didn't go for the honeymoon yet. Planning on a trip to some island.

When it came to our wedding invitation, I wanted a simple but unique card. I’d designed a vintage card with seeds that can be planted.Now I have tiny plants with pretty flowers.

During all the events always have some food by your side so that u don’t get  HAngry. (Hungry + Angry) Haha! Don’t involve yourself in any planning in the last one week. Just chill and pamper yourself. It's your day, be the happiest bride ever. Live every moment with the husband! Cheers!"
