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.

Are brunch weddings the next big thing?

Looking for that little extra something to infuse fun into your pre-wedding celebrations? Experts wax eloquence on how to throw a memorable event that spells personal touch

A few years ago, when Mukta Kapoor, Director of Yuna Weddings, suggested a brunch soirée for one of her client’s pre-wedding events, it was met with disbelief. “They thought I had misunderstood the concept of Indian weddings,” recalls Kapoor. An hour of convincing and a few lookbooks later, the planning had begun. “The idea seemed chic yet extremely colourful with a hint of the grand Indian wedding, and of course it was, cost-effective.” Many couples feel that hosting an intimate get-together like a brunch or a casual garden party is a good idea, especially for pre-wedding events since ceremonies like mehendi, sangeet or a bachelorette are meant to be fun and intimate as compared to a wedding reception.

 

Let’s get brunch-ed

A seasoned wedding blogger, Kapoor has since planned for some of the most lavish weddings including that of UK-based industrialist Pramod Agarwal’s daughter in Puglia (Italy) last year, and says the trend is slowly evolving from traditional and grand to creatively lavish, with brunches being one of the popular concepts. Echoing this point of view, Shruti Ravindran Founder, Vida Weddings adds, “Couples and their families, today, are constantly looking for ways that complement an Indian wedding while being personal in nature; concepts that are built in and around who they are, and what they want people to know them as. And this is where a brunch gives them (and us) a wide canvas to play around with.”
