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.

How can you use food as décor

Indian weddings are largely centred on culinary experiences. From the invitations and the giveaways to the décor and the menu—food plays a starring role in the celebrations.

Every cuisine has an origin story that adds character and personality to any occasion— especially Indian nuptials. Chefs Neha Lakhani and Ashay Dhopatkar of Troublesome Duo share, “In India, weddings and food are two of the most important cultural markers across communities.” Take a look at how food has become integral to weddings—going so far as to lend every celebration a unique appeal.

Trend

It’s universally known that food is one of the most talked-about aspects of any celebration. Now combine food with décor and what do you get? Wedding planner Bhavnesh Sawhney of Wedniksha shares, “When food is used to enhance the décor, it is based on the theme, magnitude and location; for instance, macaron towers as centrepieces and candies strung together to form curtains.”

Try this

Namrata Rajgarhia, Owner and Founder, 2 Fat Ladies, shares, “Wine barrels, step ladders and wheelbarrows are items that double up as displays for food, while contributing to the décor.” It’s not surprising to see real fruits and vegetables in table arrangements—especially at brunches and high teas—as they add colour and freshness to the setup. Mallika Agrawal, Founding Partner, Panodrama Events, adds, “For daytime celebrations, attention is given to the tea or dessert station. And if you want to add character to the arrangement, then candy floss carts and chuski stalls will do the trick.”

Take note
