Not ev­ery­one can build a Taj Ma­hal to im­mor­talise their love. How­ever, you can cer­tainly ex­press it through novel, imag­i­na­tive ways. And if you do it in a way that touches the heart, noth­ing can be more beau­ti­ful and mov­ing than this. In an on­go­ing trend, peo­ple are go­ing all out to ex­press their love for their part­ners on their wed­ding day. They are com­ing up with fun, tra­di­tion-de­fy­ing ideas to show it to the world that they are a made-for-each-other pair.

Ac­tor and model Av­inash Dwivedi, who re­cently tied the knot with his long time ac­tor girl­friend Samb­havna Seth, did some­thing re­ally touch­ing at their Me­hendi cer­e­mony. See­ing his bride-to-be get­ting his name writ­ten on her palm, he, too, got his would-be wife’s name writ­ten with henna on his palm. He even posted a pic­ture of his hand adorned with henna on Face­book. “I saw her putting in so much ef­fort while putting on the me­hendi. This was the least I could have done for her,” his post read.

De­signer Kre­sha Ba­jaj also took on the mam­moth task of em­broi­der­ing her love story on her bridal lehenga. Her in­spi­ra­tion was the Real Housewives of Bev­erly Hills star Adri­enne Maloof who im­mor­talised her wed­ding gown by get­ting it framed.

And not just hu­man be­ings, even an­i­mals have been a part of high-on-mush shaadis. Vidisha Shah, a 27-year-old city-based mar­ket­ing pro­fes­sional, who got mar­ried to ger boyfriend Gowrang last De­cem­ber, made sure the dog that he had gifted to her when he pro­posed was a part of the cer­e­mony.

Fash­ion de­signer Suneet Varma says cou­ples want to share their love story with friends and rel­a­tives and they want it to be re­mem­bered. “Clients of­ten come to me ask­ing for cus­tomised sweet, sen­ti­men­tal gifts such as clutches with the cou­ple’s name em­bossed on it. They want to share it with the world that they are taken,” he says. Psy­chol­o­gist Pulkit Sharma says the point is to your part­ner feel spe­cial. “If the idea is to please your part­ner, you should not re­ally care what oth­ers think. But in­stead of merely show­ing off to the world how in­no­va­tive you were in pro­fess­ing your love, do some­thing that re­ally touches the heart.”
