The Big Fat Indian Wedding

Indian weddings are getting bigger than ever. It’s a no-expense spared affair, a moment of pride for the bride’s’ parents, a chance to go all out for the betrothed couple and total merriment for the wedding guests.

A beach destination, a beautiful hotel property, a sunset wedding, live music, champagne and dancing. Such is the the big fat indian wedding saga!

Planning one such wedding? Here’s a few quick but essential things for you to ponder over.


Guest Room Accessories & Hampers:

All in-room guests have to be welcomed with a curated snack and beverage hamper. You can add a mix of chocolates, cookies, savouries, sodas, candy and the works. But don’t forget to give it a personal touch with the bride-groom names or your wedding hashtag. Some folks also go the extra mile in trying to make the hamper a keepsake. You must also place a welcome note and a printed wedding itinerary with timing and venue details in every guest room.

Venue Decor

Planning outdoor wedding functions can be a lot of fun. Colourful shamianas, real lamps, delicate danglers, fairy lights, customized installations and more. The modern brides are also experimenting with a bunch of ‘digital’ wedding decor ideas. These can include embossed danglers, coasters, cocktail list & labels, food counter decor embossed with the couples’ names, their hashtag or other fun wedding quotes.

Photography Props

In the digital age, wedding photography is not what is used to be a few years ago. So you’ve got to keep the guests entertained and give them a reason to click lovely photos as your wedding. May we suggest some floating props, completely customized to your wedding? These make for some great Instagram posts too 😉

The key is to have a theme for every function and stick to it. These themes are then extended from the decor to the food menu too.

Often brides also plan the decor themes and colour scheme around their wardrobes, which gives a cute and coordinated look. Decided your look yet? No? Give us a call! 🙂
