Doli

The hardest  thing on the wedding for any bride is the Good Bye. Amidst all the happiness and excitement , there is a part of you that aches and it’s the moment of Bidai that’s the toughest. Navneet  was all set for her Doli and had made up her mind not to cry, she didn’t wanted her family to go more weak , no matter how much she wanted to cry she  kept the smile on and gave strength to her family.

We enjoyed the trip so much from the cruise dinner to the water sports we  loved every bit of it.

 

Advise For Soon-to be Married Couples

Just start planning and shopping as early as possible that would make you a little  relaxed when the days will start arriving.. For brides try and do all the shipping and pack all your bags almost 10 15 days before the wedding as then you can enjoy your bridal ceremonies stress-free  and enjoy time with your family.

 

“For Gurpunit I can just say that I can never think of anyone who can take care of me like he does. He is the one who can make me happy anywhere anytime. I just can’t imagine my life without him..” ….. Navneet

 

“And for Navneet, I will say that I can’t imagine my life without her. She is a calm to my storm.. words are never enough for her all I can do is thank her for taking care of me because  I know no one else could have handled me the way you do.” ….. Gurpunit
