General Manager Fairmont Jaipur
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.
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.
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.
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.
