There’s something to be said for finding the right person to share your life with. In Sudeeptha and Vishnu’s case, their paths crossed several times with hilarious consequences before they decided to make a go of it. Their journey together hasn’t always been easy, but this Wedding Wishlist couple are the real deal.
You’re The One That I Want
To paraphrase Shakespeare, the course of true love doesn’t always run smoothly. Vishnu says, “We could begin our story by telling you how we both knew that we were the respective ‘Ones’ for each other right from the start. We could tell you that it was love at first sight. We could tell you that ours was a beautiful romance, meant to be from the start. Of course, we would be lying through our teeth.”
Though they humorously tell friends and family that Vishnu had to ask her to marry him four times, there’s logic behind their laughter. Vishnu explains, “One of the things we both agree on is that marriage itself is a very grown up thought. I didn’t ask until I was sure I was ready, Sudeeptha did not agree until she was sure I was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. Our friends all warned us that our lives were going to change, but when you meet the right person, you don’t mind that change. You don’t run away from it. You welcome it with open arms and walk into the next stage of adulthood hand in hand.”
What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Like any other couple, the two had to compromise on several things to make their relationship work. Vishnu elaborates, “Our relationship has had its rocky moments; we’ve had the traditional clashing mindsets and differing viewpoints on almost everything. Idealistic thoughts vs. more realistic ones, conforming to norms, strong individual likes and dislikes. Despite it all, as we sat through the wisecracks made by the pandits during the wedding ceremony, we both knew that we were embarking on our own little adventure and that it was going to be epic.”
With this strong foundation, it’s not surprising that they’re a practical couple. Their wishlist is a mix of fun decorative items and pragmatic purchases. However, there is no doubt that each piece will be used to make their new house a home.
My Wish Came True
Sudeeptha and Vishnu’s wishlist has everything required to set up a new home – from the TV (everyone needs some screen time) to the coffee maker (we all need that caffeine fix). They have favored practical items over luxury ones. Vishnu says, “Our Wedding Wishlist covered a few tools that we would need in our opening months as a married couple. We could have gone for holidays, expensive trinkets or vanity items. Instead, we put up items that we knew we would need, items which will be useful in our new lives together.”
What made them choose Wedding Wishlist to add to their happily ever after? The groom says, “We saw the Wishlist as a way to make sure that we got what we really wanted, a way for our friends and families to not have to rack their brains and end up buying us statuettes or dishes or crock pots – yes, we got many of those too. Wedding Wishlist helped us get what we want, and for that, we want to say a big thank you.”
