“He wrote the same letter three times using different inks because he didn’t know which one I would prefer,” she said. Indian Express. The newlywed added that her father became emotional when he saw that she had had the letter framed.
Suvanya’s wedding dress, designed by Sunaina Khera, also came as a surprise to her family members, as none of them knew about her thoughtful gesture.
