If you’re the couple who lives by the term, ‘go big or go home’, we have the perfect step-by-step guide for you to host an extravagant wedding
Many couples love the idea of a big, fat wedding. And with lavish marriages becoming quite the rage now, here’s what you need to pull off a glamorous wedding.
Identify a theme
While choosing the theme for your luxurious wedding, take the seasons into account. Based on this, you can pick a classic gold-and-ivory palette or a royal theme for your big day. Choose one that resonates with you as a couple and ensures you have the wedding you’ve been dreaming of.
Decide on the venue
Capable of inducing plenty of glamour on your big day, the venue could be a historic site or museum, or even a grand mansion. If it’s outdoors, choose between a romantic beach wedding and a stunning hilltop. Pick a location that represents your style as a couple.
Send out the invites
Make your guests eager for what is coming their way through extravagant or quirky wedding invitations. Your invites must match the grandeur of your wedding day. Make generous use of custom calligraphy or laser-cut invitations. You can also choose to personally deliver artisanal chocolate-filled boxes or a work of art to announce your wedding date.
Assemble your trousseau
As you spend hours looking for the perfect bridal ensemble, there are some colours that simply embody grandeur. For instance, a red lehenga instantly embodies tradition and wealth. Alternately, coordinate your outfit with the groom’s and create a lavish ensemble that can be beautifully captured through photography.
Determine your palette
The colour scheme should be just as lavish as the rest of your wedding. A monochrome palette is a safe bet if you’re aiming for understated elegance. Here, you can also experiment with jewel tones. While a combination of neutral and bold colours is an absolute win, make sure the colours exude a sense of refinement and elegance.
Think cascading bouquets and tall floral centrepieces for maximum impact. Choose from an array of elegant flowers including orchids, roses, peonies and the like. With myriad variations possible in flower arrangements, don’t hold back when it comes to a dramatic floral presentation for the big day.
A memorable feast
A wedding is always remembered for the food that it serves. You can table an assortment of multiple cuisines to cater to different palates. Pick your favourite cuisines as a couple to serve during your wedding.
Take your love for everything lavish and turn it into the wedding of your dreams. So, what are you waiting for?
