Inside Manvitha and Vishwak’s Dreamy & Classic Floral WeddingHyderabad India
Weddings are a day of celebrating two souls coming together, it is a day of celebrating love. And what better day and place than a wedding to find your soulmate? Vishwak and Manvitha had traveled to Hyderabad, India to attend a wedding. They had never met each other before and had flown to India from different states in the USA, right before the pandemic travel shut down, and in the words of Manvitha, “there were so many things that had to align for us both to be there.” It was at Manvitha’s cousin's wedding that cupid struck.
It is said that pairs are made in heaven, and nothing can come between those who are meant to be. Manvitha and Vishwak’s love story is a living example of it.
According to Manvitha, Vishwak is the calm one in the relationship. He loves to point out older couples to Manvitha, who are walking and holding hands with a promise to be like them when they are older. Manvitha calls Vishwak her biggest cheerleader in life who is confident that she can accomplish anything she dreams of.
Vishwak had planned to propose to Manvitha on her birthday in a hot air balloon. But unfortunately, the weather was not in his favor that day and it had to be postponed. But like we said, nothing can come between those who are meant to be, and eventually Vishwak was able to pull off his plan on some other day.
The Wedding Ring Inspiration
Manvitha knew what she wanted - a classic shape. Her heart was set on a square cushion cut, to which she added a beautiful hidden halo feature to the band with their names engraved inside of the band.
Vision for the Wedding
Manvitha and Vishwak’s wedding was planned in a very short timeline. Part of the decor was chosen to be cohesive with the wedding outfits.
Manvitha wanted a romantic, dreamy and floral fantasyland vibe, so they opted for a classic style with the main theme being pastels and pinks, which also matched their outfits.
They also chose to fill the venue with soft pinks, whites, and greens to match the vibe.
Manvitha’s favorite design moment was walking on a flower-filled walkway leading up to the wedding stage.
For the reception, they chose a fun, retro James Bond-inspired theme.
The Bridal Look
A great part of wedding outfits was chosen online with the help of virtual calls and fittings. A lot of time and planning was put into planning the outfits to ensure Manvitha and Vishwak coordinated with each other.
For the wedding day, Manvitha chose to go with a traditional look and opted for a beautiful Kavitha Gutta Sari. The Sari was a perfect amalgamation of pastel pink and pastel blue with intricate gold handiwork. The scalloped border of the sari made it just more feminine.
She completed the look with diamond jewelry from Vasundhara Diamond Roof, which had beautiful green emeralds in it and contrasted perfectly with the outfit and an embellished waist belt with beautiful detailing to it with an emerald green stone in the middle and hanging pearls.
For her entrance, Manvitha added a sheer pastel pink veil with a scalloped border that matched her sari. She kept the makeup simple to match the pastel vibes with a pop of pink lipstick and pink bindi.
The Groom Look
Vishwak also opted for a traditional look to be in sync with his bride. He chose an Anushree Reddy dhoti kurta set, which came pre-stitched and was super easy to put on.
The kurta had a beautiful intricate design at the neckline, cuffs, and hem which also matched the dupatta worn by him. The dhoti was simple with a golden border to match the dupatta.
The look was completed with a gorgeous pearl layered necklace with a brooch embedded in it and a pastel pink turban which had the same detailing at the border as the kurta and the dupatta.
The Wedding Dance
For the wedding dance, Vishwak and Manvitha chose Ed Sheeran as he was one of the first artists they listened to together when they were getting to know each other.
Tips for the Future Brides
Manvitha says the brides should enjoy the moment and relish the experiences, and not worry about things going a little off-plan as they will. She also advises the brides to hire a designated social media person to capture the BTS moments to get candid photos and videos. The final piece of advice from Manvitha is to ensure that the Haldi doesn’t stain your skin!
