Wish-list

Love or arranged marriage…
Love marriage for sure.

How would you propose?
It would be dramatic and romantic. I not sure how I am going to do it, but it will be awesome.

Ideal Bride
Someone who is mature, has a good sense of humor, a giving heart, ample love for family, and mostly she should be emotionally compatible.

Wedding venue
It would be inside the valley. I would prefer an open space with classy decoration, no hotels or party palaces.

Music
I would go for something soothing rather than stereotypical wedding songs. There is one band that plays in our club, Trishna. I just love them. I would surely hire them if they agreed.

Wedding attire
I think Nepali men don’t have that many options when it comes to the wedding attire. It’s either Daura Suruwal with a classic Khukuri or a tuxedo.

Food
Continental and a genuine Nepali thali for dinner.

Honeymoon
Greece and England

What would you want to pick up your bride in?
A buggy

Who would you want to take your wedding pictures?
I would hire my brother, Sujit Potey. Currently, he is the best in this business.
