The billowing swathes of mint green tulle mirror the aquamarine shades of the ocean, or it is a turquoise blue? The young lawyer groom and artist have been working with us closely for the last eight months to make their wedding perfect and ensure it is talked about by friends and family in the highest terms; a pre requisite that most modern couples have while planning their wedding. Intimacy of experience is key and bespoke is the only way to go.
More and more couples are choosing to orchestrate their weddings using professional help and personalise their celebrations. The Indian bride has also evolved in her taste as she chooses the perfect balance between traditional and contemporary wedding attire and jewellery designs. The business of weddings is clearly booming. While India is quick to take cues from weddings in the west to up the ante at home, we look at some trends that are big on the wedding circuit and gaining popularity at home this season.
SAVE THE DATE
This year in India the concept of “Save the date” cards are gaining popularity. Whilst popular in the west it is a new concept in India. Couples are choosing save the dates for the practicality it offers and the fun you can have with it. In India where we don’t believe in sending invitations more than a month in advance it is especially a great idea to send save the date while you work on the main invite and all the details of how to integrate it into your over all wedding décor. You want to make sure your wedding does not clash with other big events!
Technology seems to be the way forward in everything from creating invites ( e- Invites are big as is Face book and Twitter) or little video snippets. Live web casting your wedding is another popular concept especially with couples who choose to have destination weddings or have loved ones that can’t make it to the big day. While personal websites have been around forever in US and UK this trend is now gaining momentum in India.
