Planning a Theme for Wedding in Delhi

Wedding planning is a tough task and deciding a theme for the wedding is just the beginning of this mammoth job. Secretly all of us think about weddings. Not just our own wedding but also when we are attending one. So where are you headed to this wedding season?

Talking about weddings, one cannot miss out on weddings in Delhi. Be it the charms of ChandniChowk where a majority of the shopping happens or the scenic locations like HauzKhas where pre-wedding shoots take place, Delhi is dazzling.wedding planner in delhi

In recent years, we have seen a shift from our regular classic band-baaja weddings. Couples prefer various unique and beautiful wedding themes for their special day that makes their wedding unique and special in their own way such that people remember them forever.

And trust us, planning a theme for a wedding in Delhi is more than replacing the traditional marigold with plush orchids, because we are so captivated by #Virushka and #DeepVeer. Aren’t we?

So here we list a few tips for all those who have wedding planning on their mind.

Decide upon a wedding theme

You can choose from a number of wedding themes as per your liking. From ‘Fairy Tale Themed Wedding’ where you can write your own happily-ever-after story to a ‘Green Wedding’, which reflects you as a couple who is sober and closer to nature.And it all matches your budget too. With the right wedding planners, you can have your dream wedding planned in no time. The wedding destination, bride and groom outfits, wedding decorations, menu and everything on your wish list.

Basis the trends we have some suggestions for you.

What to do-

  • Lighter shades are in. Being subtle is the new trend in Indian weddings. Colours like pink, peach, mauve or cream are preferred. However, too much of flowery appearance can be avoided. We can always work with duppattas and other draping material for the décor. The bride & groom outfit can be worked out accordingly so that it doesn’t merge with the décor and still be in the theme.
  • What is a wedding without the right lighting arrangement? Here we suggest you use a mix of light sources like rice lights, earthen lamps, candles, and glass reflectors. As the wedding night grows, it makes the ambiance more warm and peaceful. Especially for weddings in Delhi which happen to be mostly in winters, these can do the magic.
  •  Controlling food wastage at our weddings. The best way to do is to decide upon a good, unanimously approved menu. The extra food can be given to the needy after the function is over.

What NOT to do

  •  Being loud is allowed but to an extent. Weddings in Delhi have been always been in news both for good and bad reasons. Undoubtedly we have grand weddings but let us choose more peace-loving wedding themes which aim at eliminating the burning of firecrackers and reduce both air and noise pollution.

The Wedding Stringer – Should Wedding Pros Eat on the Job?

Last year, there was a spot of controversy over a Brides magazine piece which laid out which wedding pros a prospective bride and groom should or should not feed over the course of the big day.

Specifically, the writer suggested that, in most situations, photographers ought not be fed.

A lot of people objected to this, but there’s a shred of truth to it. Feeding photographers might make them sleepy, and they might follow you home and generally get too comfortable and complacent around humans.

Wait, sorry. I’m mixing up wedding photographers and raccoons.

Of course brides and grooms should feed photographers, as well as any other wedding professional. It’s just a kind, giving, human thing to do.

But this article is not for brides and grooms, it’s for wedding pros. Alas, you will encounter clients not very simpatico with the people they hire.

So how do you handle that, in regards to your belly? Here’s how:

DO: Pack a protein bar

Or any other snack that fills you up. You know, they say Snickers really satisfies you.

It can be a drag seeing all of this scrumptious food made by top caterers when you can’t have any of it.

But that’s show business, hoss. If you see to it that you’re not hungry to begin with because you thought to pack a snack in your emergency bag, then the braised mastodon turnovers will be less distracting.

DON’T: Eat conspicuously

I know that secretly, you subsist on solid foods just like the rest of the world. But I will keep your secret. Here, you’re not a human, you’re a professional.

It honestly kind of sucks that wedding professionals aren’t treated to the fun parts of weddings and made to feel like friends more often. We, as a society, should spare tons of humanity for the worker bees we encounter throughout the day.

But it is what it is. If the cable TV installer plopped down on my couch and watched a full episode of Judge Judy before taking off, that would feel weird and presumptuous.

By the same token, any eating you do on the job, whether it’s a candy bar or a meal, should be done either privately, or subtly on the periphery of the main activities.

DO: State your wishes in your contract.

As noted in the linked article, some wedding professionals do just that; require, in their contract, that their clients feed them.

This is a great and smart thing. It takes away all the awkwardness of wondering whether it would be right or wrong, acceptable or gauche, for you to grab a slice of tiramisu.

DON’T: Ask the host if you can eat the catered food.

If you put it in your contract as above, you don’t even have to ask. But (again, not saying this is right, just saying it’s reality) if you’re all, “C’n I have a lobster tail, too?” you’re gonna look kind of lame.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is, the clients who don’t give a damn if you eat or not aren’t as common, in my experience, as more kindly clients who will invite you to partake. And if they do, you absolutely can.

Sorry to end this here, but I have to shoo some wedding photographers away from my dumpster.
