An Indian Wedding is a event full of love, fun, color, tradition and culture. When all of these elements are present, the bride, groom, wedding party and guests can have a magical time that they will remember for a very long time. Even though there is a lot to organize, it can be done when there is a plan in place. The plan will be based on the beliefs and visions of the bride and groom for what they want their day to look like. If you are looking for this vision and are looking for different ideas then this article is for you.
My aim is that before you leave you will be full of ideas about how you might want your day to go. These ideas are inspired by Indian Wedding Themes, wedding themes that will guide every decision you make from hairstyles to jewelry, from location to entertainment and food. So make yourself comfortable, read on and start dreaming 🙂
Royal Wedding Theme
Here is some great insight on a royal wedding theme from www.weddingwire.in
For a royal wedding, nothing less than a majestic palace would do, as your wedding venue. Find yours in a heritage property, a hotel resort, an outdoor location or even a popular destination wedding location (we recommend reading up on these for a Destination Wedding in Udaipur). Similarly, for example, The Taj Falaknama, Hyderabad is a great wedding venue option if you’re thinking of a royal Nizami wedding.
Add a little drama to your royal endeavour. Make bridal or groom’s entries with traditional grand announcements. You can go for live Shehnai and Nagada players instead of a DJ to fit in the theme. If you’ve been eyeing those Nizami bridal magazines and want a Hyderabadi regal look, go for heavy silver zardosi work on Lehengas with an elegant Khada Dupatta.
Accessorise with diamond jewellery. Grooms can wear silver embroidered Sherwanis with contrasting Uttariyas paired with matching Nagrai juttis. As an accessory, you can carry a sword in a kingly style. Make sure you add a touch of grandiose in food too. Talk to your wedding caterer while deciding on the wedding menu and include food and drinks apt for a royal themed wedding. For example, you can use metallic Surai instead of bottles for serving drink
Futuristic Wedding Theme
For the tech minded couple, celebrate their love of tech and futuristic technology with these tips from www.vogue.in
Robots carrying trays of food and drinks, drones recording footage, 3D mapping—Mohan’s wedding theme is a tech geek’s dream come true. Self-lit glasses for drinks, LED ice cubes and wait-staff dressed up as robots to serve drinks and food will create a cool tech vibe. Hologram selfie booths to up your guests’ Instagram game. You can also have LED butterflies, laser performances and magicians. A party favour could be LED bands, self-lit sunglasses or even glow-in-the-dark sticks. You could also indulge your guests in some 3D printing for DIY favours. An in-lit table with gobo projections (used to modify the shape of light) is a great option. You can project any kind of design with this projection. For example, the initials of the couple or the hashtag of the wedding.
Bollywood Wedding Theme
womennow.in gives a great insight into the fun that can be had with a Bollywood Wedding Theme
The all-time-favorite theme almost every little girl secretly cherishes since childhood is having a Bollywood style Indian wedding. Those singing and dancing rehearsals, that week long sagai–sangeet–mehendi–shaadi festivity, that band-baaja-baaraat concept – it gives an unmatched high. In fact, now, you can even make a real time full length feature film on your wedding too where a director will work on a script with his entire crew, where the bride and groom will play the lead roles, where roll-camera-action will be heard beside the Vedic chants. You can’t get it better.
Rajasthani Wedding Theme
If you are looking for fun and color in your wedding then consider these ideas from www.weddingsonline.in
A colorful, mela like backdrop will set the tone for your Rajasthani wedding. Vibrant and lively, this is the décor to go for if you want to get all of your guests in the spirit of the celebration. Include plenty of colorful throws, pillows, umbrellas, marigolds and other orange, pink or red elements. And while you are at it, Rajasthani snacks and Indian street food will ensure that your guests remember your wedding for years to come.
Lucknowi Wedding Theme
Last but not least is the Lucknowi wedding theme which is described perfectly by www.weddingwire.in
Live your Nawabi fantasy by having a classic Lucknowi theme for your wedding. An elegant Haveli, a heritage property or an expertly decorated banquet play perfect host to your dream for a Lakhnavi themed wedding. Go for antique chandeliers, lanterns, red roses, coloured glasses as a part of Mughal themed wedding decoration. Welcome your guests with Ittar and Gajras for a perfect Lucknowi ambience. Organise an Umrao Jaan themed Sangeet with Ghazals and Nazms being special features. Use Lucknowi chikan as much as you can in your wedding outfits. The bride can opt for Anarkali dresses for Haldi, Mehndi and Sangeet. Groom can go for a chikan embroidered Kurta for most of the ceremonies. Go for Kundan or gemstones for your bridal jewellery. Don’t forget to book appropriate wedding caterer to serve authentic Awadhi cuisine with famous Tunday Kebabs and Lucknowi biryani as special attractions.
We hope you now have some fantastic ideas for your upcoming Indian Themed Wedding. Best of luck for the big day!
