Our USP is personalized touch to every wedding. We treat every family as our own family and become part of their family which help us in giving personalised touch to every small detail of the event.

3. What challenges/obstacles did you face in your journey so far?

It’s a journey from a hospitality manager to a Wedding Consultant. When we started our journey we use to do just 1 to 2 projects in a year and that too small scale. Slowly and gradually we grew from there and now we have 2 offices one in Bhopal and other in Gwalior.

4. What are your expansion plans?

We are planning to make a Wedding Clinic under one roof where you can find from weight loss program to dress designer to card designer to pandit ji and everything.

5. Tell our audience more about your failures? How should one bounce back?

Failures are the biggest part of success. Yes we have failed and we have learnt from it. We did a project and failed drastically but yes we learned from it. Certainly it took us sometime to come over but yes we again stood up and we again started. We work on our terms and rely our team completely for their support.

6. How do you define success?

Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. Success has no such definition, if your client is happy and satisfied with your work means you have achieved your goal. You should be happy with what you delivered if yes then you made it through successfully.

7. Please share with us some of the challenges you faced in your journey.

When you start your company challenges are part of it. Challenges make you learn, they give you the desire to do something new, something extraordinary. It makes you think out of the box so yes we also had many such challenges where we failed then again stood up, last-minute cancellations and all.

8. What would advice to someone starting up and particularly to women entrepreneurs?

Women can do anything if they just think of it. Our company founder is also a women. Just one simple piece of advice no need to get afraid of anything and anyone, you are stronger than any man. It is just you need to believe yourself. If you believe yourself world will believe you. If you have a supporting family and partner it makes your journey easier.
