Good Morning ! Readers….excited to feature a lovely sunset themed beach wedding in Goa. Sadly, Bangalore does not have a beach….i know…how I wish we had a beach too… When my childhood friend Presley told me he had found the love of his life and was getting married to Alina on 23 Feb 2014, I was super thrilled.
Today, marks their 1st anniversary…. so, with great pleasure I would like to share their lovely wedding and how both the families helped to make it happen.
Though Alina was in Mumbai and Presley was in Muscat, Technology brought them together and there was never a turning back…
We were looking for a wedding on the beach side. We selected the theme of sunset for a couple of reasons – its romantic and I, Presley, had spent most of my life in Dubai (the land of hot summers), cause both our star signs are Leo (Zodiac element – Fire, Sign Ruler – The Sun).
First thing to do was to get a date in the church and get a venue for that date. My brother, Placid and my Father in Law, Lindolf; were the main two people involved in the planning of our wedding. Since I am from Goa, I made an initial list of vendors that could be used. My brother has a background in events and so finding out contact details of vendors/suppliers was not much of a challenge. Closer to the wedding my sister in law/maid-of-honour – Lianne; got involved with our wedding trousseau and the bridal entourage. We didn’t need a wedding planner to ruin the fun of wedding planning. I downloaded a wedding planning app and made my checklist using that. I then assigned responsibility to people on each item or between my fiancé and me accordingly.
Wedding Invitation & stationery
Wedding invitation was designed by my Brother in law- Clyde Nunes, since he is an art director. It got designed in Canada, printed in Dubai and was finally distributed in Mumbai, Goa, Canada, Dubai and Australia.
Wedding dress & Accessories
Since we had just 4 months only, I, Alina decided to buy a readymade dress. This was quicker and also more economical. Plus, I didn’t have to be bother about buying materials, choosing a pattern, doing trials etc. After checking out couple of stores and getting my close friends opinions, I found the perfect wedding dress and accessories from Brides R Us. And they worked out a very good deal.
