Neha weds Ankit

By Sanhati Banerjee

Plan your wedding presents the tale of gorgeously done wedding, all planned and set right by the parents of the bride, after months of meticulous research making it an event packed with memorable ideas and gala welcome amidst lots of beauty and fanfare.

Meet the Couple
Neha Modi, the daughter of Anil Modi, an importer of petroleum products based out of Delhi and Ankit Chawla, the son of a business tycoon from Jalandhar had a wedding that was straight out of a fairytale filled with stupendous beauty, gorgeous decoration and splendid couture and marked with lavish setups and ideas for welcoming the bride and the groom. It was an arranged marriage. However, both Neha and Ankit studied together in Delhi and the marriage was fixed only after six years and it’s simply a coincidence that they actually knew each other.

From Dad and Mom with Love to a Daughter

When it was decided that Neha would get married and it all happened sometime early last year; from that very moment onwards, the parents of the bride had decided that it’s going to be a grand wedding. Despite the fact that the bride’s father was unwell, the thing that was topmost on the mind of this pair of doting parents was that they were not going to settle for anything less than perfect for anything and everything related to the wedding; right from the fashion designer to the wedding venue. Anil Modi had bad slip disc a week before the wedding but he attended it nevertheless. After all, how could he miss his darling daughter’s wedding?
It all began on 5th June, 2013 at Tivoli Gardens in Delhi with the roka ceremony. And since then, the only thing that was there on the top of their minds was the wedding.

The Countdown to the Wedding

“We had a good eight months before the wedding after the roka ceremony. Each and every one of our friends and family gave us numerous tips in the intermittent period and provided us with all their support” says Shefali Modi. A lot of painstaking effort was put into the research and the final selection of Neha’s dresses, jewellery, makeup, accessories and her trousseau.

The Sangeet and Wedding Dresses
A lot of creative hours were spent in the market before finalising the dresses for Neha. Her sangeet dress was a brilliant Indo-Arabic fusion. An off-white Chinese-neck top with blue pants gave her the perfect look. It was elegant and chic to the core; a great design specimen created by Parvesh of the designer duo, Parvesh and Jai.
Neha’s wedding attire, which had been designed by Frontier Raas was simply out of the world. “When she first walked in and was going through the shelves, I figured out that she will look good in a subtle yet sparkling look. We discussed the options and then we zeroed in on a not-so loud look” says a designer from Frontier Raas. Based on the theme, a dress was designed which not only made her look gorgeous but also made her look a class apart from the rest. Her wedding trousseau was designed by Monisha of Monisha and Roopali.

Makeup and the Look
On sangeet, her makeup was done by Mehul of Affinity. He gave her a very subtle look. For the wedding day, Meenakshi Dutt was the makeup artist. Neha wore heavier makeup this time suitable for the grand note of the wedding.

Sangeet-Mehendi and the Musical Medley
The sangeet-mehendi ceremony took place on 6th February, 2014 and it was an out-and-out fun night. It was organised at the Wok in the Cloud banquet Delhi. On one side, all the ladies were treated to traditional sangeet songs accompanied by the beats of a simple dhol; special dholwalas had also called in and bhangra was going on simaltaneously by a bhangra performing band; while many could not stop shaking their leg on the DJ floor. It was a gala evening which went on till the wee hours of the morning. The following day was sagan at Grand Plaza but that was an all-formal affair. The wedding took place on 8th Feb, 2014.

Wonders of the Wedding Décor

Anil Modi says “We decided for a pink-and-purple colour combination for the wedding. The grand location chosen was the Royal Gardens at GT Road, Delhi and the decorations started one week prior to the wedding. From the very beginning, we had thought that we will design everything ourselves so we did not have any wedding planner. But the theme and the decoration were simply out of the world. We got a specially designed bar from Mumbai which was a great hit.”
An open restaurant was also made especially for the purpose which had its own menu giving a fine dining experience to the guests. The catering was done by Blue Circle caterers and it was excellent.
Shefali Modi says “We got a 100 meters of carpet which had roses embedded into it for the bride. We did not let her feet touch the ground! It was simply awesome.”

The Gala Guest List

In all, the Modi family had anticipated about 2000 guests including many VVIPs. But many of them could not turn up as there was a huge traffic jam on that day. Many of the “high profile guests like Shatrughan Sinha could not turn up for that reason” says Anil Modi.
The famous personality from Bollywood, Sanjay Khan was present at the wedding as the dearest guest and family friend of the Modi family. Benu Gupta was similary another dear guest present at the wedding.
Jagdish Tytler, ex-minister of the parliament and Maninder Singh Bitta, member of the parliament were among the VVIP guests from the political elite present at the wedding.

Those Memorable Moments…
It was a great day for us. The groom came to the venue on a ghodi. While it was regular fun at the ribbon cutting ceremony, after that “Ankit was escorted by a special band from the entrance gate till the dais” says Shefali Modi. That’s what made the groom’s being ushered in so special. The groom’s sherwani matching his bride’s attire was by Deepak S Chhabra.
The bride came decked up in beautiful kundan-jadau jewellery. It was a great sight to see the fairy walking on the specially designed rose carpet flanked by her brothers. “While rest of the evening went on fine the special moment was the vidai ceremony. We had arranged for a traditional doli and the brothers carried her till the car. A similar kind of thing happened at the groom’s place when they parked the car some distance away and Neha entered her new abode in a vintage doli. On the other hand, the groom had to negotiate hard with her sisters-in-law for his shoes just before the vidai! He gave each of them a diamond ring as sagan cash” says the bride’s mother redrawing the picture of bliss and beauty that went into this wedding for us.
Each guest was given a basket of fruits and sweets as return gifts. It all went on very well and beautifully for this beautiful wedding.
