The latest trends show the emergence of experiential weddings. From Lake Como, Tuscany’s villas to wine country California, Arizona and south Asia, desi couples are loving the idea of a saat samundar paar wedding (outside India wedding). Themes and experiences are more preferred over the traditional “eat-and-bid-adieu weddings”. Love is celebrated more than anything else.
In this full of fun vibes edition, we bring to you the ideas for wedding celebrations, real-wedding stories, and a close look at California, a relatively mild weather state that is fast emerging as a hotspot for desi weddings. Moreover, there are many terrains and styles to choose from in California, like the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa, the Agate Cove Inn and the Post Ranch Inn, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by mountains and forests. We also have a special section for experiential weddings with breathtaking wedding theme ideas like picnic outings, Alice in Wonderland, Met Gala, Jewel tones, The Great Gatsby, and so on. To understand the rise of “experiential weddings” better, we had a chat with Tina Tharwani, co-founder of Shaadi Squad and Angad Singh, partner of Innovative Eventz. Captivating the mood of marital bliss, the royal theme is a classic. We have curated a list of designers to help you achieve your look in the Royal Weddings feature. Along with these reigning trends and styles, our Real weddings in this Issue will give you more ideas. Tamana & Kunal Kapoor curated a Met Gala theme in Thailand while Athena Vooght & Thomas Vooght settled on Raj Palace. Dr. Divya Radhakrishna & Nicholas Lawton’s wedding at Mahabalipuram had traditional exotica at its best.
