- Wedding: December 2017
So the moment I’ve been waiting for the last 4 years has come. We are finally (officially) Engaged!
Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting, cake I made myself from scratch! We play a lot of xbox together :3
Well.. let me first explain the situation. I’m from Afghanistan, so our culture of being proposed to, or being engaged is different from most American culture. When we met we knew we wanted to get married right off the bat. But because of a lot of personal things and struggles and goals and obstacles we had to face, we couldn’t get engaged right away. And it took us 4 years to get to the special day. So how it works is usually, the guy comes to the girls house and proposed for her hand in marriage like 3+ times. When the girls family finally approves we are considered Engaged. So that whole process just happened in june.
I didnt have a professional photographer unfortunately which i prob should have gone with one. But yeah at least some of the photos came out decent!
I did my own makeup and had the amazing Tamanna Roshan do my hair. I got the dress from a local store called Blossoms and its a Tony Bowls dress. I absolutely fell in love with the dress when i saw it in the window. It’s a strapless but since were conservative I had to cover it up. Luckily i had bought the lace long sleeve top 2 years beforehand and it matched perfectly!
Now i can plan and book EVERYTHING!! yay!
