HOW TO PICK YOUR IDEAL WEDDING DESTINATION?

  • By Srestha Dutta

Getting hitched to your beloved amidst the balmy breezes of Malta or among a flamboyant estate overlooking the Eiffel tower sounds like the desired dream of every couple, but picking out an exemplary destination for your wedding can be quite a task. Yearning for a destination wedding is alright but how does one select one single destination from the best? This is where we come in, of course! By the end of this blog, you will confidently have a specific destination planned for your wedding.

OBLITERATE A FEW PLATES: – A destination wedding means a limited number of guests. Before you chart out your destination make sure your guests can travel to the place to attend the occasion. If needed cut down on the guest list, obliterate a few people who won’t be able to join in on the fun if a specific destination is chosen for the event. For instance, if you want an international wedding destination some guests might not be able to join in.

THE ELIMINATION PROCESS: – Before you start researching about places you see yourself getting married in, eliminate the places you do not want. Some couples want a destination wedding in India for instance – Goa, Agra, Karnal etcetera. Others want the total opposite and desire to get married among the international breezes like – Paris, Greece, Canada, etcetera.

PLAN YOUR BUDGET: – If you have a budget to care about searching for a destination wedding eases out a lot. Having a budget for your marriage allows you to eliminate the destinations that will trouble your wallet therefore limiting your choice and make you harness your energy for just the right destination. If you do not have a lot to spend on your wedding still crave a destination wedding outside India lookup Krabi – A tropical Island perfect for couples!

PLAY FAVOURITES: – Ask yourself where do you see yourself taking pheras with your partner – on a beach, in the middle of blue mountains, or surrounded by luscious green forests? After you have the answer to this question search up respective destinations for your dream wedding! If you are looking for a minimal yet memorable destination wedding, getting hitched on the Amazonian riverboat will surely do the job. More adventurous out lookers can search up the Jim Corbett National park in Uttarakhand for a wedding complemented by the sounds of rich flora and fauna!

GO VENUE SEARCHING: – Some might prefer searching for venues after they have jotted down a specific destination. But we say otherwise, searching up venues in different destinations opens up more ground for you to compare places on. Maybe the venue in Paris accommodates more guests than the one in Rome. Working on different destinations simultaneously might sound doughty, but it will palpably help you choose.

SURROUNDING AREAS: – While searching for a wedding destination view what else the place offers other than a dreamy wedding. Look for active tourist spots, amusement parks, gardens, or museums that will keep your guests entertained and you stress-free.

You get married just once, therefore make it count!

GET GLOWING AND CLEAR SKIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!

Don’t we all want our skins to seem unblemished and radiate a gorgeous pink glow on our big day? However, amid a global pandemic, it is not feasible for every bride to be to visit a salon and receive the soothing treatment she desires. With a ravishing dress, one needs flawless skin as well to make the heads turn. Try these simple and quick methods at your home to achieve picture-perfect skin for your wedding!!

EXFOLIATE: – Exfoliation is a pivotal process if you truly want your skin to feel fresh. For all my DIY Queens out there, this is the perfect project! Mix three tablespoons of sugar with one and a half tablespoons of honey. After you have achieved the fit consistency. Smear it to your face and scrub for five minutes. Rinse the mixture and say hello to your crisp and dead cells free skin! Repeat the process once every week for the prime results.

MOISTURIZE: – Some might think moisturizing one’s skin might give rise to acne which is a myth that needs to be addressed. Not moisturizing your skin might cause it nevertheless. One of the soul steps to glowing skin is to moisturize your skin twice a day! Keep your skin from drying up and keep it saturated for glowing skin.

ICE BATH: – Do you believe baths are just for your body? think again! Your face needs proper treatment as well. Take a bowl and fill it with water, release some ice cubes in it and stick your face in the bowl. Use a straw to breathe and elevate your face after two minutes (or before if the water is too cold). This ice bath will shrink your pores and make your face more compact for the makeup to go on well!

CLEANSE YOUR FACE: – None of the above-suggested methods will work on a face ladened with dirt and pollution. Therefore, make sure to wash your face with your go-to face wash before trying the other techniques! Lather on the facewash and gently scrub for a minute or two to discard all the filth and unclean particles.

HYDRATE YOUR SKIN: –Although most of us have been told drinking gallons of water can make your skin glow brighter than the sun few of us have seen results instead of sprinting to empty your bladder every second. But we can guarantee you hydrating your skin with a fundamental toner will bring in the compliments as well. Start applying the toner twice every day and see the results for yourself. Try Dabur Gulabari Premium Rose Water for instance. It is money efficient and worth the purchase.

DITCH THE OILS: – Nothing can be achieved without a few sacrifices. Therefore, this wedding season, say no to oily foods and eat lots of greens and maintain a healthy diet. Gulping down junk foods will add to your acne and oily skin, thus give it up for this wedding season for the skin you always desired for. Maintaining a healthy diet will only add to your perfect and glowing skin!

CLEAN PILLOWS: – Make it a routine to rinse any applied makeup before you hit the pillows. Unremoved makeup is the source of acne-prone skin and skin diseases. Say hello to makeup-free pillows and clean skin every night before dozing off!

SLEEP WELL: – A well-rested mind will not only reduce the wedding day stress but allow you to feel and appear fresh as well. Not to mention the long gone dark circles, it is of utmost importance for the bride and groom to have a sound sleep before the big day!

EASY WAYS TO MAKE YOUR WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT AND WEDDING FILM TO STAND OUT.

If you do not want to regret looking back at their wedding photoshoot because it’s ‘too basic or artless’, you are in the right place. Photographs are the most important ingredient in the recipe of wedlock. You get hitched only once, but the photographs stay with you for an eternity. When you are in your 70’s with your spouse, would you not want to view a unique wedding photoshoot that flawlessly expresses the bond you and your partner have had since day one?

Here are a few approaches to have an exclusive Wedding photoshoot and film!

PRE-WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT: – 

  1. You and your partner can mimic the first picture taken together in your candied days for a wedding photoshoot. Wear your wedding attire and imitate the posture in the bygone snapshot with your companion. Finally, make a collage with both the pictures against each other. This will unveil the lasting venture you both have been through, the tempests you have passed by lingering together for all these years!
  2. Yearning for a unique pre-wedding photoshoot should not have to make your travel to a new destination, this beautiful image can be snapped on your terrace! Travel to your terrace at dusk and hold a piece of slate with your wedding date on it. Let the photographer capture this exquisite moment as the setting sun reveals a crimson sky and you both look into each other’s eyes while holding the date of your eternal union!

POST-WEDDING PHOTOSHOOT: –

  1. Framing the moments for the onset of a timeless odyssey after the wedding is just as necessary as the pre-wedding snaps. Print a sign with the surname you and your beloved will be sharing till the end of time, for instance – ‘MR. AND MRS. IYER’. Voyage to the nearest park with the sign, your partner, and the photographer and frame another novel commencement!
  2. How would you like if just a picture could represent all that you and your spouse have been through? This easy plan will do just that. Capture various images with your partner depicting the diverse junctures of your relationship through the years. Subsequently seek a photoshop retoucher to edit the varied snaps into an ultimate one. And you will have the post-wedding photo of your dreams!

WEDDING FILM: – 

Having the ultimate wedding film is the desire of every newlywed duo. And this awestruck angle will only add to your countless wedlock souvenirs! Apart from churning up an hour-long wedding film, make a sixty seconds video embracing the nitty-gritty of the wholesome event. Ask your wedding videographer to capture a few candid shots of the betrothal and club them up in the wee video. For instance – when the bride-to-be walks into the venue, decked up in her breathtaking attire and her eyes meet the groom’s while all the family breaks into cheers!

These out of the world ideas are bound to set your wedding photoshoot and wedding film apart!

Therefore, instead of going all out on your wedding party, choose cost efficient methods to save some money and still have an extravagant and heavenly wedding!

CUT DOWN ON THE EXTENDED FAMILY: – Invite only your close relatives and not the extended families. For instance, the in-laws of your best friend, the plus one’s of your relatives which included the members of their in-law’s extended family. This will surely save you some plates and money.

ONE VENUE: – It is a routine practice of Indians to choose different venues for various wedding ceremonies. This increases your transport cost and rent for the copious number of venues.

RELATIVES TO THE RESCUE: – Remember your distant cousin who has a lit playlist and consistently wanted to be a DJ? Ask him/her to pump up the wedding party for the eve.

What safety precautions to take for intimate home weddings?

The galloping rate of COVID-19 has forced many people who had earlier wanted to hire the services of the top exotic destination wedding planners in India to reshuffle their plan. Since there is a greater restriction on the assembly of more than 50 people in any social gathering, it would be foolish to hire the services of the best destination wedding planner in Jaipur at an exorbitant price which only a handful of your guests can attend. In such a scenario,it is wise to plan the wedding ceremony in your city while taking all the necessary safety precautions. To help you in this regard, we have asked a destination wedding planner in Udaipur about the safety measures that are needed for an intimate wedding ceremony.

Try to incorporate safety measures a creative way

When you are planning an intimate wedding, you could never let your guard down when it concerns safety measures. You can distribute hand sanitiser as well as a disposable facemask when your guest arrives at the wedding venue.

Make wearing mask mandatory for the guests to make

It does not matter how close the guests are to you personally, you have to insist that when they are enjoying their time with others at the wedding ceremony they must wear a mask and gloves all the time. Similarly, you have to make sure that the waiters wear the complete safety suit.

You should plan for plated foods

In your marriage ceremony, you should give the buffet party a miss and instead organise for plated food that is served on disposable plates. This will ensure that the chances of infection spreading is minimised.

Opt for social distancing seating arrangements

In an Indian wedding where everybody group together for chitchat is not possible during the health emergency. You have to arrange the seats of the guests in such a way that the norms of social distancing are respected.

Go for the traditional way of creating

Instead of shaking hands with your arriving guests when you welcome them, you should either welcome them with a folded hand (Namaste) or salaam.

Keep the wedding ceremony short and small

Invite only your closest relatives and try to keep the marriage ceremony short but memorable.

1). Get help: Organising a wedding ceremony is a huge event and you must ask for help from your friends and family members. You must delegate some responsibilities to people you trust would do the job. You can ask your sister, aunt, or friends, to help you with the shopping. You can also ask your uncle to act as a bartender on your wedding date. All these looks quite small, but they all add up to reduce your responsibility and thereby decreasing your stress.

2). Take a hiatus from the social media: Social media that includes Facebook, Instagram or YouTube offers numerous dos and don’ts to the wedding couple.
