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.

Reusable wedding décor ideas

Reusable décor makes for a highly sustainable yet fashionable wedding celebration. Read on to find out how they can be incorporated into your wedding..

Vignesh and Veena Balakrishnan wanted to host a zero-waste wedding. Besides the e-vites, the couple consciously decided to not spend on purchases like trousseau and jewellery—the bride wore her grandmother’s sari and paired it with heirloom jewellery. They took an important decision to avoid plastic in all forms. So alternate seating options such as floor bedding and steel and wooden furniture were sourced for the reception.

For the four-hour-long festivities, they ensured the décor was minimalistic and 100 per cent plastic-free; they did so by including seasonal flowers along with lights, blackboards, paintings and fabrics. Food was served on banana leaves and dessert in areca bowls, along with reusable glasses and water jugs.

Vignesh and Veena additionally went to great lengths to correctly dispose of leftover food: “We tied up with Robin Hood Army—a volunteer-based organisation that works to get surplus food from restaurants to the less fortunate sections of society in cities across India and in other countries.”

“The organisation collected the leftover food, which was then distributed to workers, kids and a child welfare centre,” the couple adds.

The used banana leaves, areca and rolling paper were transferred to a compost pit to make manure.

“The used flowers were given to a colony in Thiruvanmiyur (Chennai) to be used as garden fertiliser, while all the vegetable waste was used as a garden tonic,” the couple states.
