While speaking to the Indian Express Singhi said that she has been wanting to do this for a long while hence she discussed it with her mother and her fiancée a month before the wedding.
She also added that, while her father was a little concerned about her view being obstructed by the flower arrangement, her father-in-law was worried how she would get in the car with the heavy lehenga.
“Everyone was obviously taken aback. Mostly, people were worried about how I’m going to fit in the car with the 12kg lehenga!”she said. She added that everyone was surprised and a little confused but overall quite supportive.
