So, the question has been popped, you’ve said yes, and it’s official – a grand wedding is on the horizon. Congratulations to you and your beau!
Enjoy the initial euphoria while it lasts, because once it dies down and you return to terra firma, there will be a thousand details demanding your attention. A wedding and a gala one at that don’t plan itself, you know.
The most important question you have to ask yourself is what kind of a theme do I want? Once you have that sorted, you can set the tone for everything else, such as décor, flowers, and of course, your trousseau.
The Hollywood Theme
If you’re a gal that’s fond of glitz and glamour, the Hollywood theme is right down your alley. Roll out the red carpet, adorn your table with sequined table runners, spread diamante confetti on the floor, and put up a movie-themed photo booth for your guests. With a color scheme replete with gold, silver, and Red it’s the perfect way to bedazzle your guests.
If your prospective groom is just as much of a bibliophile as you are, consider a setting based on a book that you both love. Perhaps a theme around Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party? Or a venue designed like Hogwarts? Or something more quaint going back to Pride and Prejudice? Choose your pick and let your imagination run wild!
The Rajasthani Theme
Rajasthan is considered to be one of the most vibrant states in India. It’s just a riot of colors out there, and on the most joyous occasion of your life, you couldn’t go wrong with such a happy and sparkly theme. Reds, oranges, and yellows; pillows, umbrellas, and throws; marigolds, daisies, and gerberas (and of course plenty of mirror work) can really come together beautifully to create an ambiance that will put everyone in a lively mood.
Modern & Minimalistic Theme
Not the kind of person who loves pomp and show? Fret not. There’s nothing to say that the great Indian wedding can’t be minimalistic. Extravagance isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, and there’s a growing interest in simple and classy weddings. Pastel shades, sheer fabrics, floral decorations, and aesthetic lighting can really come together to create an evening you’ll remember for life.
Escape the pollution, escape the smog, escape the traffic. In fact, why don’t you just get out of this country and choose an exotic locale for your wedding? Along with being a really unique idea, destination weddings are a whole lot of fun too. Not only do you take your vows in a paradisiacal setting (Paris? Italy? Bahamas? Swoon!), but guests can also enjoy a whole bunch of post-wedding adventure and tourist activities. Now, who could say no to that!
We always believe that if you’re out to make a big impression, the usual simply won’t do. Think of something innovative, something out of the box, which will leave everyone talking about the big, fat, Indian wedding that was yours!
