Listening to Akriti Kakar talk about her significant other feels like they’ve been together forever.

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.

What to avoid serving your guests on your wedding day

We already know what we should serve at our wedding buffet, but what about the ingredients or dishes that are a strict no-no?

Months before the big day, we have a ready list of everything we want our wedding menu. With our mind filled with thoughts of our favourite entrées and desserts, we can easily visualise the buffet spread. However, while making this selection, there are certain items that you must avoid no matter what.


Light as the weather

Avoid weather-sensitive food on your wedding day. If yours is a summer wedding, keep away from foods that are easily perishable such as dairy- or fruit-based dishes. During the monsoon, keep the non-vegetarian options to a minimum. Also, steer clear of assorted salads during this time. A winter wedding allows you to experiment a bit more on your wedding day. Although the fruits might not be the freshest during this time, they still manage to pack a wholesome flavour and stay edible through the day.


Wake up and smell the garlic

How much ever you may love garlic-infused sauces or cottage cheese lathered with chunks of garlic, it leads to people having bad breath—and no one is a fan of that. Due to its pungent smell, it is not the most ideal choice for a wedding buffet. Save your garlic-centred meal ideas for another day when hundreds of people are not involved.

Off the kid’s menu

As you walk down the aisle, a trip down food memory lane might not be the brightest move. A tray of kid’s treats such as biscuits and hot dogs, or bowls of noodles and peanut-butter sandwiches is a big no. Snack mix or chicken nuggets are not appetising food choices for your wedding day.


Say no to the mess

Many a times you have unabashedly devoured chicken wings while sitting opposite your significant other. However, this might not be the day for those kinds of brave food choices. With hundreds of people enrobed in their finest clothing, partaking in this messy affair might not be their idea of a good feast. Thus, avoid serving burritos, corn on a cob and loaded sandwiches.


Leaf it behind

Fancy salads, although delicious, are a debatable choice for weddings, especially ones that are held outdoors. Most people opt for pasta salads and fruits on their wedding day since they last longer. However, a leafy salad generously laden with dressing might cause it to spoil faster.

Now that you know all possible food faux pas, tell us what’s going to be on your wedding menu.
