A lot has changed over the time. Wedding is no more constructed between a couple and just the pheras and bidaai. It has now become an articulately well-planned series of events where one can know the other’s family in a better way. Our each and every step is now logical and so is the arrangements for the marriage ceremony.
With the advent of Internet, technological accessibility to it and the TV having its place right on the facing wall of our drawing rooms, we are more into a trans situation. A situation which has us grounded to our roots but also gives us the freedom to measure the sky. The 21st century calls for innovative, eco-friendly, larger-than-life yet realistic marriage concepts. From pre-wedding shoots to marriage cards, from designer lehengas to dance numbers, from exotic locations to lip-smacking food. There’s no stopping. Here is what you need to be keen on while preparing to be the millennial bride.
Bollywood inspired photo shoot
There is no lying that everybody dreamt of being a bollywood diva at some point of time. Your marriage does make you the star, but to relish those moments with your partner-cum-hero, all you need is to hire a professional photographer. Look on for a serene background,try those LBD(Little Black Dress) you always wanted to wear, and pose!
Go smooth on your budget and the environment by opting for an E-card. Invitations via e-mails or other online mediums is the new cool to doing your gracious bit to the environment. Its high time to go green and ditch the boring cards. An online invitation can help you create your own templates and save money at the same time.
Marriages are all about fun, dance and music. You can hire professional dancers and choreographers to teach you the grooves to steal the night. Dance numbers make the moments unforgettable and highlights the bond that is shared by the family. Music helps you express and what better way than dancing on it. From your power-packed entry to a dedicated dance number, from a solo performance to the group dance. From bhangra to bollywood, there is no limit to the fun that dance can add.
You can now have a theme party. This adds personality to it. You can request everyone to follow what you love the most. A head-gear might make you stand out, or a specific colour theme. The unanimity is beautiful. Everybody donning the same piece of art yet differently styled.
Saving on food
We all know what a food massacre takes place after wedding receptions. The extravaganza to feed guests, the lavish trays and plates and piles and piles of salad, all go in the bin. It is very disheartening to see all the money go in the trash like this. Marriages call for celebration..celebration till it may. So all the millennial brides-to-be take notes and register your marriage event with an NGO and let poor kids have a share of what celebration tastes like.
