HappiWeddings SS’2019: A Floral Story

Come summer and everything will be about florals once again. The winter will take away the deep hues of solids, leaving us with lovely blooms and blossoms. Whether it’s food, apparels, shoes or jewelry, floral themes will rule the season in the summer of 2019.

Weddings too will see a lot of beautiful pastels and florals in terms of wardrobe, decor, invites and other accessories. A wise bride may pick a set of colours, say pink and white and plan her wedding details around this palette. A signature floral Sabyasachi lehenga for the bride, with a matching turban for the groom and co-ordinated wedding invites. What a beautiful sight!

Just the thought of floral weddings makes us go all warm and fuzzy. What about you?

When planning a floral themed wedding, the key is to not go overboard. It’s equally important to add solid shades in the mix, so that your floral accents stand out. So for instance if you’re planning the dining table decor for your sit-down reception dinner, the table cloth can be a solid white, topped with a floral runner. Similarly the chair ties can be a solid silk with bunches of artificial or real flowers.

Here’s a few fun and floral decor accents for you to consider while planning your wedding decor –

Starting with the wedding invitations, one can choose a variety of floral styles – watercolour florals or sketched out monochrome blossoms with rich gold foiling or even vintage red roses.

Moving on to the bigger decor elements, like planning the entire theme for an outdoor wedding function, like a Mehendi or Cocktails. Here’s some accessories and decor accents that will help you accentuate the food and drinks counters, the photo booths, and also help keep your guests entertained.

These are just a few ideas on how you can use summer blossoms to add a fun and young look to your wedding. There are many many more ways to incorporate floral themes into your wedding decor. For more such ideas, feel free to call us at +919920979565.

Along with these invites, we also made some unique looking checklists, which were a part of the giveaway hampers for journalists, who attended the press launch.

They are extremely useful to make quick notes and jot down reminders. The cover plates of the checklists were designed on lines of the invitation, keeping in mind that the attendees are riders and biking enthusiasts. The matt finish of the checklists was made to match the classic look of the Jawa bikes.

HappiStories: A Happipress Initiative

“Long rainy days, a hot cup of chai and crispy bhajias have a crazy effect on my mojo. Usually I want to shake things up, ruffle some feathers and stir up a storm. This August,  after one such session, the impact was more deep and sombre. I have been associated with Happipress for over a year now, and at its very existence this brand stands for everything good, cheerful and positive. It celebrates the best of design, contemporary art and crafts and marries it with recycled aluminum plates, to create something outstanding and rather premium. So we know that the product never fails to bring joy and happiness to our clients. But it got me thinking, how can the brand ‘Happipress’ also create some good karma. That’s when HappiStories was born.” – Anaggh Desai, CEO, Happipress

Happi Stories, is an initiative to convert the values of Happipress, into a tangible effort to reward and recognize the lesser known and unsung heroes around us and anyone who selflessly helps others. We’re constantly on the lookout to find such stories that inspire us and in our own little way we applaud them, share their story and reward them with our humble happi hamper.

Since we have consciously started keeping an eye out on digital mediums and within our social circles for such anecdotes, we have been overwhelmed with the good work that common folk are doing these days. Here’s a few interesting picks for you.

HappiStories # 1:

Meet Varun Gupta. On his 10th birthday, Varun collected Rs.10000 by selling his story books to sponsor the education of a girl child from ‘Vidyasha’.  With this selfless deed, Varun has not only set an example for his peers, but also for us. We decided to applaud and encourage his efforts and his value system instilled by his parents, with a small HappiHamper.1blog.png

HappiStories # 2:

Sandhya Menon, a writer, journalist and active Tweeter, has never failed to inspire us with her opinions, hardwork and writing. She was spearheading one of the most active campaigns in Bengaluru for relief efforts during the Kerala floods. Without a break, she was mobilizing donations and relief material, channelling accurate information, and pleading with truck drivers to take food and clothes to Kerala.

And so when we recently decided to send her a happi hamper, little did we know that it will give her so much joy on a day when she was in need of some magic. We were happi to have given her her first ever personalised memo-board along with other goodies, which a stationery lover like her would really appreciate.3
HappiStories # 3:

Rudraksh, another young boy, created his first social awareness campaign against child labour in firecracker factories. The concept, visuals, copy and artwork all have been created by him. Encouraged by everyone’s words of praise, he is now working towards crafting his own photograph collection for his future campaigns.

We hope to continue this little endeavour of ours to spread happiness and encourage the do-gooders around us. If you hear of someone who deserves a HappiHamper, make sure to bring it to our notice. You can write to info@happipress.com. So long and be good! 🙂

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! 🙂

Happi Weddings: The Outdoor Mehendi Party

_EHA1599

Contemporary Wedding Planning Ideas For The Fun Bride

by Happipress

If you’re getting married in the winter of 2018, you’re most likely planning a lawn or poolside Mehendi function. And you should. It gives your guests something to look forward to and frankly you’ll need that change too. With all the bridal nerves, you can use this casual outdoorsy set up to break into the ceremonies and shake a leg yourself.

Open and outdoor venues give you a blank canvas, to do as you please. So decorate away. Throw in some entertainment, a live barbeque, a colourful dance floor. AND DON’T FORGET A WELL-STOCKED BAR. You’re set!

So where to begin? Plan the live activities and food counters first, because those will take up most of your space.

Live Entertainment & Activities

There’s no real Do’s & Don’ts here. So don’t hold back any wishes. You’re only going to get married once. If you’re really looking to create a unique and memorable experience, here’s some killer ideas for entertaining your guests and yourself! 🙂

Food Counters

You know your friends and family best. So while you’ve got to cover all bases in the main course, go a little nuts with the appetizers. No one really says no to some good old-fashioned munchies with cocktails. So pass ‘em around till they say stop!

The Life Of Every Party: The Bar

Whether it’s a daytime function or evening, you’re definitely going to need a killer bar. Get your banquet manager to curate a themed cocktail list and a well-trained bar man. If you’re planning to go all out, dress up the bar with custom-made accessories like coasters, straws, tissues and the works.

(Custom-made colorful coasters with personalized quotes)

Contemporary Decor Accents

Colourful danglers help in dressing up trees, pillars and other elements that are a part of your venue. These can be customized to suit your decor and colour scheme.

(Traditional coloured danglers from trees, pillars to match the marigold flower decoration)

A non-traditional photo booth can be installed, to help highlight your wedding hashtags, other quirky quotes and it also serves as a great decor accessory. It can be strategically placed to mark the party territory.
