5 Things to know while planning your wedding.

Some prefer big fat wedding and some prefer Mini/destination wedding. Whichever is your choice? These 5 key things you better keep it in your #WeddingList

1. Plan Early

2. Hire a Wedding Planner

3. The Wedding Decor is not built in
4. Food and Beverages
5. Wedding Dress + Accessories



Now to make it a unique day the couple ensures that ‘the big day' schedule is perfect. Being independent and thoughtful they know their preferences beforehand and make sure that their wedding location, decor, food, and attire are all in place. Young Indians are always on the move and are debilitated with their daily routine of work where they hardly get any time to do the planning all by themselves but at the same time they want to decide most of the wedding aspects, and sometimes the entire planning goes on a toss.



Plan Early: Commit to a particular date in advance so that you get your favorite location/Venue especially during winter, New Year and Valentine days. As the competition is much more these days. Suggestion: Send all your selective guests save-the-dates well in advance so that guests can make appropriate travel plans. And flights and hotels can book up quickly during this wedding season.

Hire a Planner: Wedding Planners generally help couples navigate the wedding journey smoothly especially if it’s a destination affair. You need a person who is well-versed at troubleshooting and coming up with alternative solutions during hiccups. Since you need more of 'me time' in your wedding rather than getting into the stress of doing the arrangements all by yourself. It is effective and a clever choice to get a Wedding planner onboard and get experienced advice on best practices for getting all your vendors, logistics, decor and guests to the location without overspending

The Wedding decor is not built in: It is a common misconception that the location comes with the decor. The basic decor done on the entryways and some here and there by the venue owners is not personalized at all. Make your wedding decor dreams come true by getting it personalized by a professional decorator. Whether it is only flowers, drapes or festive lights it is absolutely your choice. Affordable themed decoration is in these days. Google couple of décor service providers or get some contacts from your friends/relatives and reach out to them. Get their portfolios and finalize one within your budget and likeness.



Food and Beverages: This is the crucial part of the wedding. What to be in the menu? And what not to be. Are we overdoing it? Should we go for continental or Indian cuisine? Lot of confusion right? Now to deal with this your guest list should be prepared by now. You know roughly who and how many would be coming and you have an idea what they like. Get hold of one of your family member or Wedding planner or both and give them a brief of what you desire to have. They will deal with the catering service and get you both quotes and menu for your wedding day finally review and finalize on the menu and setup. You know right? The weddings are remember by their sumptuous food. 



Wedding Dress + Accessories: Ensure that your wedding dress is in sync with your personal choice and the decor. And get a good Photographer who can capture the right essence of your big day!  Get the necessary accessories for your wedding rituals sorted as early as possible. Have someone from your family to keep these accessories with them; easy to get.

OUTDOOR CAMP WEDDING OR PARTY, ANYONE?



OUTDOOR CAMP WEDDING OR PARTY, ANYONE?
Yes, you heard that right! We are talk about a wedding outdoors, perhaps at a camp and not too far from Bangalore. Read on to find out more!
When we think Camp Wedding, we think ‘Rustic’. A rustic, boho-chic wedding & party themes are at an all high with most millennials these days. These décor styles are simple, they are elegant and beautiful. So, we thought, why not take the rustic, boho-chic theme where it truly belongs, the outdoors! Nothing says rustic like tinges of burlap, mason jars, fairy lights and of course soft subtle hues of greens, whites and browns.

We chatted with our friends at ‘Camp Monk’(https://campmonk.com/) and learnt that there are 5 to 6 suitable sites around Bangalore and Mysore alone! Amit Shetty, Founder & Partner says, the setting is perfect for weddings, small parties like a bachelor, milestone birthday or anniversaries! The locations include mountain backdrop, water fronts, organic farms and come with electricity, camping equipment, certain closed areas, tents, camper vans and can accommodate atleast 300 people. These sites are also pet friendly, children friendly and geared for nature and environment enthusiasts. The sites are also suitable to host ‘Green Weddings’, leaving minimal carbon footprint.

We imagine the campsites make a perfect setting not just for Rustic, Boho Chic weddings but any kind of celebration. Be it a mile stone birthday, bachelors, anniversary, what have you! Take a look at some pictures and get inspired.

"Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho toh puri kaynaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.”



Some people meet through friends, or online, some at work, and maybe a few during college or even at a bar. Then there are these couples who have unbearably sweet “How We Met” stories. Stories that are so ridiculously amazing that serve as special reminders that beautiful things can still happen... when you least expect it or if you let them happen.



This blog we talk about a couple who recently got engaged in Bangalore and chose us as their Decorators - Sandhya and Mayank. Their story is guaranteed to make you believe that love happens in the most surprising ways. 

Sandhya is self proclaimed ‘Filmy’ and a huge Bollywood fan. She first met Mayank when he came for a job interview at their work place, 8 years ago! Their work friendship grew into a thick friendship or like she defines it, they became ‘Chuddi Buddies’ and a true bond of love and admiration (no they still weren’t dating yet) began. Like any typical BFF relationship, they hung out everyday after work, grabbed beers, met each other’s crushes while at that, spoke about life in general and continued the daily grind. Until one day, after constant harrowing from friends and office mates, Sandhya realized she may have feelings towards Mayank a bit more than she likes to express. This soft feeling grew into something a lot like love. Mayank knew, but they never spoke about it. Life happened, they grew apart and didn’t speak to each other in spite of working at the same office for almost 2 years. Later, one Valentine’s Day, Mayank gathered courage to speak to Sandhya and tell her he knew all along but never reciprocated his love because they both didn’t want to risk the beautiful friendship they had. He however confessed his love for her and asked for forgiveness for the years lost in vain. This was their turning point. A couple of months after resuming their friendship they finally started dating. There was no looking back!
It’s been 3 blissful years and they recently got engaged in a beautiful private ceremony, which we were also a part of by being their decorators. 
The decor theme for this lively, gorgeous couple was a subtle mix of peach and pink. We gave them a fuss free backdrop on the main stage made with peach drapes, chilly lights, glass jars filled with small bouquets of roses, carnations and greens and lastly to add an extra spark we used cutting chai glasses and filled them with rose petals and tealights. At the entrance to welcome the guests, we used peach drapes and tied them with a wreath of mixed flowers! The tables were decorated with beautiful flower centrepieces and candles.
 
Wishing this lovely Jodi only love, love and lots of love!
