HUMANISING EL­E­MENT

Fair­mont Jaipur has found its much-cov­eted place on the list of the most pre­ferred choices for des­ti­na­tion wed­dings for peo­ple through­out the globe. While our clients hail from dif­fer­ent coun­tries with var­ied de­mands and ex­pec­ta­tions, one el­e­ment re­mains con­stant - the de­ci­sions within this cat­e­gory are more emo­tion­ally driven as com­pared to other seg­ments within the MICE cat­e­gory. We have to en­gage with our clients and treat them like a part of our ex­tended fam­i­lies to help them cu­rate one of their most cel­e­brated mile­stones. Meet­ings are held time and again to reaf­firm their de­ci­sions.

WED­DING DÉ­COR

The big fat In­dian wed­ding is get­ting big­ger by the day. Usu­ally, one would think of the ba­sic func­tions - the en­gage­ment, a sangeet, the mehendi cer­e­mony and the wed­ding fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion. But now, modern-day brides are delv­ing deeper into tra­di­tional aus­pi­cious prac­tices and bring­ing them back to life. Thus, the num­ber of func­tions and the var­ied list of for­mal­i­ties keep grow­ing as do the costs and themes for dé­cor op­tions.

BUSI­NESS AS USUAL

Busi­ness has con­tin­ued as usual de­spite the im­pend­ing is­sues of GST, liquor ban, and de­moni­ti­sa­tion. While wed­dings are a com­mit­ted spend, even book­ings from our other MICE seg­ments come from some of the most re­puted busi­ness and cor­po­rate houses from across the globe.

IM­I­TAT­ING FILMS

The movies, the stars, and the glitz and glam­our that comes with them is an essen­tial el­e­ment of a dream wed­ding. We have had count­less wed­dings in which the list of celebri­ties has been end­less from In­dia and across the globe. Si­mul­ta­ne­ously, cou­ples want to em­u­late wed­dings and themes draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from their favourite sil­ver screen wed­dings.

THE HICCUPS

Lots of In­dian fam­i­lies are get­ting into des­ti­na­tion wed­dings with­out re­al­is­ing the Her­culean task that they have set out to ac­com­plish. De­spite hav­ing an army of wed­ding plan­ners and pro­fes­sion­als to take care of the many el­e­ments, In­dian wed­dings re­quire a lot of in­volve­ment per­son­ally from the core fam­ily mem­bers and even the bride and groom. As time pro­gresses, the wed­ding seg­ment is only go­ing to wit­ness a boom. Des­ti­na­tion wed­dings will share a healthy por­tion of this pro­jected growth.
