Interview: Schedule meetings with at least three or four selected planners. Discuss their previous work, ask to see pictures, and review their management style. Share your vision about your wedding in terms of color, theme, style, music, comfort, entertainment, and especially your budget. You can also request references to gain insights from previous clients.

The Individual: A good wedding planner will listen to you carefully, and then share his or her thoughts. Look for someone passionate about weddings, as this enthusiasm translates into dedication. If you can envision working harmoniously with them planner and sense their genuine passion for creating memorable weddings, you may have found the perfect match!

The right wedding planner would have great communication skills and a good sense of humor to lighten the stress in the days leading up to the wedding.

Bride entry ideas in Indian wedding

The bride’s entrance holds immense significance, and above all, symbolizes the transition into a new and beautiful phase of life. Hence, introducing a few subtle yet creative bride entry ideas can transform the bride entry into an experience that goes beyond the ordinary.

Looking for that perfect entrance to set the tone for your Indian wedding? Here are some bride entry ideas-
  1. Flower Magic: Dressed in royal attire, the bride can make a regal entrance with flower petals strewn along her path. Picture a stunning tunnel of fresh flowers leading her to the groom.
  2. Carried in Carriage: Embrace tradition with a beautifully adorned doli, or instead, take it up a notch with a carriage drawn by four elegant white horses – because why should boys have all the fun?
  3. Caaaar: Opt for grandeur with a stretched-out limousine or a vintage royal car that brings the bride straight to the altar in magnificent style.
  4. Ethereal: For a touch of simplicity and romance, consider a path lit by traditional lamps as the bride walks alone, radiating ethereal beauty amidst the soft glow.
  5. Music All the Way: Create a cinematic Bollywood moment! For example, like in the movie “Main Hoon Na”, you can have live music accompany the bride’s entry – imagine the melodious tunes of a sitar or the rhythmic beats of drums played by a live band.
  6. Zara Hatke: Want to break away from the ordinary and add an element of fun? Then take inspiration from Gul Panag, who had a cool bike escort at her wedding. Drive in, Roadie style, but in the most exquisite wedding attire.

The choice is yours, and the possibilities are endless! Whatever you decide though, keep it a delightful surprise for the groom and his family. You certainly don’t want to miss their expressions as the future lady-of-the-house makes a grand statement with her bridal entry!

It’s that once-in-a-lifetime moment when all eyes are on you. As a bride, you should be ecstatic and overjoyed. However, it’s common to feel a bit tense and nervous, questioning, “Do I look alright?” This thought resonates with brides worldwide, across cultures. Don’t blame yourself, dear.

Since childhood, many of us, as little girls, have already envisioned what we’ll wear on our wedding day. For some, it’s a deep red bridal lehenga , for others, a Banarasi magenta sari, and for several, a vibrant pink one. While these colors are undoubtedly beautiful, countless Indian brides have already chosen them over the years.

On your special day, you might observe married women donning dresses in the same hues, saved from their bridal trousseau. It’s time to consider breaking away from tradition and embracing a look that reflects your unique style and personality.

It’s time for a change!

If you’re considering a change in your wedding attire, the fashion world has a reassuring message – white is the new red, or perhaps green or orange. Top designers have redefined the traditional image of bridal dresses in recent years.

In the Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014, designers Shyamal and Bhumika showcased a floral bridal collection featuring stunning shades like beige, peach, wine, brown, aqua, among others. Gaurang Shah’s collection, Chandbali, paid homage to the modern bride with royal ethnic designs in vibrant colors such as sabz green, narangi orange, zard yellow, and more.

For those rooted in Rajasthan or similar traditional cultures, breaking away from tradition might raise eyebrows, but your wedding is uniquely yours. Trust your instincts on what looks best for you. Remember, as the bride, all eyes will be on you, regardless of the color you choose. So, if you feel like experimenting, embrace the opportunity without hesitation!

Rajasthani Mehndi: A Symphony of Design and Color

Jaipur, and in fact the entire state of Rajasthan, boasts a unique flavor when it comes to mehendi designs and colors. The henna from Rajasthan leaves behind an extraordinary shade, reflecting the cultural essence of the region. One particularly amazing style is the mirror design mehendi, where the intricate patterns on one hand or foot are meticulously replicated on the opposite side. This artistry is so challenging that only an expert designer can achieve such precision. The popularity of this style extends far beyond the borders, with people from across the nation specifically seeking mehendi designers from Rajasthan for their weddings.

Apart from its cultural significance, there are various theories about the color of mehendi after application, beyond its medicinal value in stress relief. Two particular favorites emerge. One belief suggests that if the mehndi turns a dark brown, almost blackish brown, it signifies a deep bond and affection from your mother-in-law, promising smooth sailing ahead. Alternatively, focusing on the same color factor, another belief suggests that it is the husband who will shower you with intense love. Regardless of the theory, it’s the bride who ultimately gets the last laugh.
