Life, Throwback Thursday

The Day I Looked Best ~ Throwback to the Most Special Day of My Life

Elizabeth Gilbert says,

The fantasy of the wedding day is that it represents undeniable public and private truth that you have been chosen. For that one day, you are the most valuable creature in the world; a treasure, a princess, a prize.”

On 21st February, 2017, I felt like the most special and beautiful person on this planet. The reason? It was my wedding day. It’s been three years since that day, but I still feel (and know for a fact) that it was the day I looked my best.

Of course, one of the reasons for feeling this way is that is that I also felt happy from within and smiled as well as laughed from my heart that day.  After all, I’d found the person I’d be spending my life with and we were taking our wedding vows in front of the people we loved, so what was not be happy about?

Though I strongly believe that ‘Beauty is skin deep’ and that one cannot be defined as ‘beautiful’ just by the way they look, I do believe that a bride needs to look her best on the day when she takes her wedding vows.  And, we all know that just happiness and that inner glow isn’t enough to complete that bridal look, right? So how did I look so pretty that it made everyone’s heads turns and eyes glued to my face?

Have a look yourself at some of my best pics from that day. Aren’t you in awe of my bridal look too? Would you too like to look this drop-dead-gorgeous and head-turningly beautiful on your D-Day?

Then I’d recommend the bridal package and services provided by Rahul’s Salon, Surat. They’re thoroughly professional and I did not need to waste a single ounce of my energy in either following-up or in any suggestions as to how I wanted to look on my D-day. Despite that, just look at the results!

The best part about their service was the quickness with which they got me ready. I reached their salon at 3:30 pm (after the Haldi ceremony and Grah Shanti pooja on the morning of my wedding day) and they had me ready in just an hour. I was back at the wedding venue by 5 pm, with ample time for my bridal photo shoot and before the Baarat came in.

Also, they have an amazing studio type ambiance at their own salon (which I now regret not having taken advantage of). So, you can have an amazing bridal photoshoot in their salon itself!! I did manage to take one photo of myself and it still remains one of my top favorites from that day. Just look at royal looking sofa and table, which would be perfect props for a royal bridal photoshoot.

Rahul sir ( the founder of the salon) tries his best to make you comfortable, engaging you in easy chit chat, and making sure your pre-wedding jitters are taken care of. Till today, that day has been etched in my memory as a special one, and it will stay that way for a long time to come. And, one of the major reasons behind this is the quality of service provided by Rahul’s Salon, Surat.

I sign off reminiscing that day as we celebrate our third wedding anniversary. As Richard Needham says, “You don’t marry one person you marry three, the person you think they are, the person they are, and the person they are going to become as the result of being married to you.” and so our marriage continues to be strong because we both, despite turning out to be different than what we expected, have become better versions of ourselves as a result of finding and being married to each other.
