If you’re the couple who prefers going big over going 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. Decked with only the most beautiful elements, it can be difficult to incorporate glamour through and through on your big day. With lavish marriages becoming the rage now, what do you need to pull off a glamorous wedding?
Choosing the theme
While choosing the theme for your luxurious wedding, take the seasons into account. You can go for a classic black and white or a royal theme for your big day. Choose a theme that resonates with you as a couple and ensures you have the wedding you have dreamed of.
Essential to add scoops of glamour on your big day, you can choose a historic site or museum, or even book a grand mansion for the day. If not indoors, you can go for a romantic beach wedding or one on the mountains. As per your preference, make a pick that suits your relationship style best.
Sending out the invites
Make your guests eager for what is coming their way through extravagant wedding invitations. Your invites must match the grandeur of your wedding day. Make generous use of custom calligraphy or laser-cuts for the cards. You can also choose to personally deliver boxes brimming with luxurious goodies or a piece of art to mark the beginning of your wedding.
Your wedding trousseau
Your wedding trousseau is what brings the whole of your wedding together. As you spent hours and energy looking for the one, there are some colours that simply embody grandeur. You can opt for the traditional grand red lehenga that instantly becomes a wedding memorabilia. You can co-ordinate outfits with the groom and create a lavish ensemble that will be etched in your guest’s memories forever.
The colour of love
The colour scheme you go with should be just as lavish as the rest of your wedding. A monochrome palette is always a safe bet when it comes to keeping it classy. You can experiment with royal jewel tones and hot hues. While a combination of neutral and bold colours is an absolute win, make sure whichever colours you choose are refined and elegant.
Cascading bouquets and tall floral centerpieces are the perfect choices for a grand flower arrangement. You can choose from an array of elegant flowers including orchids, roses, peonies and the like. With myriad variations possible in flower arrangements, don’t hold yourself back when it comes to a dramatic floral presentation on your big day.
A memorable feast
A wedding is always remembered for the food that it offers. You can table an assortment of multiple cuisines to cater to the tastes of all kinds of guests. 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?
