After an elaborate surprise proposal, we had high expectations from Nikita and Nakul’s engagement party. We weren’t disappointed! At first glance, the party appears to be a formal affair with Nakul dressed in a black suit and bow tie and Nikita in an embellished black gown. But the couple indulged in their creative sides to put together a personalized, chic DIY event that was plenty of fun as well.
We were blown away by the amount of detail the couple went to in creating a fun, playful vibe. Our personal favorites included the colorful mason jar cocktails, the decorations featuring elements of their story and the life-size Instagram board that served as the perfect prop for guest photos and memorabilia for the couple. We couldn’t take our eyes off the extensive dessert bar that was mostly prepared by Nikita herself.
We catch up with Nikita to find out all the details and the behind-the-scenes planning that went into this fabulous party.
About The Couple
How did we meet?
At my sister’s 21st – you never know where you will meet someone! Nakul and my sister knew each other from their Bollywood dancing days, so he happened to be on the 21st. Nakul says he was “blown away” by my speech so he approached me afterward to compliment me on it, and we had a quick chat. The next night, Nakul flew to America for 5 weeks – but not a day went by without us talking (you can imagine the phone bill!). When he came back, we met up again and the rest, as they say, is history!
How he proposed?
Nakul organized a series of surprises that lead to the most amazing proposal.
What marriage will mean for us?
For us, marriage will be the opportunity to spend the rest of our lives together – as best friends and as husband and wife. We look forward to traveling and starting a family together, along the way creating lots of happy memories and sharing amazing experiences. We are excited about what the future holds and look forward to taking the next step in our relationship.
