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.

Everything you need to know about planning a minimalist wedding

Keeping with the trend of minimalism, you can also host an understated wedding affair sure to leave a lasting impact – here’s how

Every couple looks forward to having the wedding of their dreams—opulent, full of life, and etched in people’s memories forever. However, if you are the couple who likes to keep celebrations low-key, these minimalistic wedding trends are just for you.


Choose a laid-back venue

By opting for locations such as a beach or even the backyard of your house, you can nail the perfect minimalist wedding. Choose wooden furniture and the least amount of adornments for it to stay true to your theme. Consequently, you will save money otherwise spent on a grander location.


Opt for understated décor

The décor must complement the theme of your wedding. Go for natural or reusable decorations that not only look sophisticated, but also have minimal effect on your wallet. You can also DIY if you feel creative enough to do so.


Send e-vites to people

Since most of our lives are documented on social media, it only seems fitting to send electronic invites to people either over e-mail or messaging apps. You can even create an interactive save the date and let people know about the details of your wedding. Furthermore, you can ask them to RSVP electronically to save both time and money, and environmental resources.


Plan your honeymoon right away

Instead of planning your honeymoon after finalising other details of the wedding, begin planning early to have the perfect getaway. Take the time to research and finalise a suitable itinerary and book in advance for maximum savings. Take care of these details beforehand to ensure a stress-free holiday.


Say no to gifts

Put an end to the receiving and returning of gifts. Inform your guests in advance to avoid any awkward situations and relieve them of the burden of having to spend a lot on something you may never use.


Aside from this, choose a muted colour palette (think pastel tones) for your bridal entourage.
