Wed Jan 16
Last year was big on grand weddings and setting new wedding goals for numerous reasons, from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s regal affair to the Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s traditional extravaganza; we have been taking notes from all the things that work and will be the next big things in the realm of wedding affairs. Although Wedding trends are as hard to gauge as the next fad in fashion, but here’s our list of a few things 2019 weddings have in store for everyone:
Personalize your trousseau, ab tum bhi viral!
Wedding outfits in India were largely about the same lehenga that Kareena Kapoor wore in bole chudiyaan, but the times have changed and how. The 21st-century bride is all about what compliments her body the best. Women are opting for practical wear in their wedding trousseau, with laboriously long events for days on end, brides are opting for something that doesn’t burden them under manifold layers but also stealing the show at the same time.
Choosing the color that catches your fancy, log kuch nahi kahenge!
We have always been restricting our wedding outfits in terms of the colour palate till now, from crimson red to blush pink was the maximum of our choices. Thanks to the new-age designers who have been pushing the envelope with eclectic tastes in not just custom designs but even bolder colour choices. From stunning gold Valentino lehenga that Isha ambani donned to the long-veiled chikankari ivory saree by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, we’ve had stunning servings of out-of-the box bridal wear.
A visual feast for the guests, Shaadi is the cutest party!
Modern day weddings aren’t just all about the baraat and the varmala, but there are many more fun events like haldi, sangeet, after-party, et al that have to be designed by care and quirk to cater to the entertainment of every guest. Destination wedding planners in India, make these wishes come true by all this creative inputs in little personalised details for every event. You can have innovative edible displays, or fun juggling near the bar; these things light up the mood of the guests and gives them a joyous experience throughout the wedding.
Make your guests feel special. Unke aane se bahaar aayi hai afterall!
There are no harm in flaunting the bride and groom to be’s wedding hashtags, but why just do it simply? The newest and the most personalized way to do this is to craft illustrated invitations which are designed according to little details of your wedding story that the recipients can get a smile on upon receiving. A touch of generosity also goes a long way, the thoughtful gesture of crafting invitations like gift packs with herbal products and organic goodies instead of sweets is a cute way of switching things up for good.
Do it your own way, DIY rasmo riwaaz
Weddings of the past used to be weeks long duration of archaic preparations and conventional rituals, but now we are all occupied in our hectic lives and chock-a-block schedules. So, we made our weddings weekend friendly or plan it in the holiday season. But why just stop there? From years of expertise, we have seen that everyone loves a creatively thought of the customs of the family. We had beautifully manifested crazy yet adorable baraat for both the bride and the groom! Moreover, nowadays we have seen a huge appeal of organizing after parties post-Sangeet where all the young-at-hearts rock the dance floor with the DJ. So when it comes to your ‘once in a lifetime’ affair, don’t fret about log kya kahenge and fulfill your wishes with your loved ones.
Give back to mother earth, Bacchon ki shaadi Mars pe karwani hai?
The new generation is all about being good citizens, we care about everything from the cleanliness of roads to greener earth; then why should we not care about making our big fat Indian weddings cleaner too? Everyone wants to get their D-day as perfect as they imagined it to be, this entails decking up many venues and preparations for various events as well. It’s all about what happens a few hours after these events – scattered flowers, plastic cutlery waste, firecrackers waste, et al. 2019 is all about cleaning up that mess by taking small efforts in terms of switching plastic cutlery to biodegradable/recyclable cutlery, decomposing flower or natural wastes, least air pollution, and many such acts of zero waste.
