When did you get engaged?

When do you want to get married?
Manila and Ravee: We are getting married during the end of fall this year.
How did you first meet?
Manila and Ravee: We met through a common friend, here in Nepal.
The most memorable date you’ve had…
Manila and Ravee: For us, it has to be at the Lake House in Pokhara, a lovely restaurant by the lake. The lake officially closes down at 6 pm and you cannot ride a boat nor there are security personals or lifesavers after that time. We bribed the rower to get us through the lake at 8 pm and we got back to the shore at 12 midnight. We not only risked getting caught by the police, we actually risked our lives. It will probably be one of our most memorable dates throughout life.
What quality do you most admire about each other?
Manila: His positive attitude towards life. His confidence and sharpness.
Ravee: Her attention to detail and her ability to make people understand.
What was the best engagement present you received?
How would you describe the style of your wedding?
Manila and Ravee: Well it’s a celebration of love, togetherness of families and friends coming from different corners of the world; it will be a very traditional ceremony combined with modern aesthetics.
What’s been the most fun detail of your wedding plan?
Manila and Ravee: Some of the most fun details for us would be discussing wedding rituals with families, sharing ideas regarding the videos and pictures with our camera person. Also, choosing the décor, interacting with professionals and listening to their ideas, travelling overseas for shopping and practicing our dance moves.
What’s been the most difficult detail of your wedding to agree upon?
Manila and Ravee: Since we are having four receptions, I think the most difficult detail would be inviting, pairing individuals or groups on different dates.
What do you look most forward to: The wedding day, night, or the honeymoon?
Manila: While choosing amongst the three, I will choose the wedding day as undoubtedly it will be the best day of my life, to be united with my love, my better half and my best friend. The moment declaring us as one with the title of being his wife for life.
Ravee: Since I have to choose amongst the three, it has to be the wedding day, because I can’t wait to make her my wife. The person who I love dearly and with whom I want to spend the rest of my life.
What will be the most unique detail of your wedding celebrations?
Manila and Ravee: The most unique detail of our wedding celebrations will be people coming together from different cultures from around the world to celebrate the embracement of the diversity of two different individuals belonging to two different cultures.
Wedding day anticipation…
Manila: To see my well-dressed groom.
Ravee: To see her in her wedding attire.
