About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

6 ideas for an unforgettable brunch wedding

Do you and your partner love the idea of a brunch wedding? Here are a few out-of-the-box ideas to include on your big day

Brunch weddings are slowly becoming the talk of the town when it comes to planning the ideal wedding day. Couples everywhere are opting for the mid-morning festivity owing to its affordability and striking aesthetic. Aside from being easy on your wallet, brunch weddings have an irresistible food and drinks menu. If you are a couple who loves brunch or are looking for an unconventional way to tie the knot, we have a few ideas that will leave your guests in a cheerful mood!

 

A brunch of flowers

Ditch the grand centrepieces and go for something off-the-cuff by setting up wildflowers in a mason jar. With brunch weddings, you can keep your décor simple yet snazzy. If you are hosting your wedding in a garden or in a cosy restaurant, mason jars will enhance the aura of the venue.

 

A food fiesta

Why not have fun with the multiple breakfast ideas that complement a brunch wedding? Instead of a classic sit-down meal, set up a food bar with live pancake and waffle stations. It is a fun way to quirk up your brunch wedding. Serve an assortment of sliders, quiches, and a tower of doughnuts – because what is a brunch without the sugar-coated delight, right?

Nip on stylish sangrias and mimosas that are a perfect addition to your brunch wedding menu. Bear in mind that most people won’t drink alcohol early in the day; instead, keep a drinks station for both–cocktails and mocktails. You can offer champagne, screwdrivers, mimosas, smoothies, fruit juices and the evergreen hot beverages including gourmet teas and coffees.

 

Jazz it up

A brunch wedding isn’t necessarily the right atmosphere for people to let their hair down and dance like no one’s watching. Instead of hiring a DJ, your partner and you can have live music to create a dreamy mood. Dance to the tunes of a live jazz band or string quartet, while everyone else sways to the classics.

Set up a personalised and creative photo-booth at your wedding venue. If your wedding takes place in a natural setting outdoors, you can experiment by hanging photo-frames from trees and decorating it with a bunch of flowers such as daisies and orchids. With irresistible outdoor lighting and a picturesque frame apt for a photography session, your wedding guests are sure to enjoy the booth.

 

A favour-ful wedding

 

As your brunch wedding comes to an end, it gives you the occasion to gift your guests some creative favours. You could send them off with cookie or jam jars to remember the occasion for days to come, or you could create custom newspapers that include your love story and other details about your wedding. Recreating a typical brunch hour where people sip on their coffee while scrolling through the daily news, the custom newspapers will be a big hit among the guests.

 

So, what does your ideal brunch wedding include?
