The pastel panache has taken us all by a frenzy. And we couldn’t agree more. The Gen Z peeps are all about looking beyond the mainstream. Gone are the days when donning light hues for brides were a complete no-no. The big fat Indian weddings now seem to be going in for subtle and sublime colour schemes. Pastels all the way!

They’ve become the epitome of romantic in more ways than one. From your invites to your favours, here are 5 details you absolutely cannot miss while fixing up your wedding itinerary for the best wedding planning.

1. Nail that Invite right!

Whether you’re going for an e-invite or a physical invite, go for minimalistic yet graceful colours: mint green, peach, blush pink and the likes are our favourites when it comes to invites. Add a pop of metallic detailing to accentuate and add a royale look to the invitations.

 

 

2. Pastel in your ensemble!

From the little charms hanging in your ballerinas to your bold embellishments on the wedding attire, go all out on pastels because you just can’t overdo with it. Spill your fairy-tale romance in blush tones and stunning hues of soft pinks, greens, blues, and purples for an enchanting bridal look.

 

3. Cutesy DIY wedding favours

From the bridesmaid kit to the room hampers, aligning everything to the pastel theme might sound like a task but we tell you, it’s not. Just make sure you settle for favours you would want to use. DIY the packaging using little flowers and pastel sheets to give it a personalized touch and you are sorted.

 

 

4. The ever-so-gorgeous cakes and garlands cannot be missed

Do it for the camera, we say! These two being the highlight on the stage and the latter on you, you wouldn’t wanna go wrong with these. Mind the colours though, as it shouldn’t get camouflaged with neither your attire nor the stage decor.

 

5. The dainty decor, of course!

Pastel drapes, the lights, the charms, the flowers make up for that whimsical wonderland setting where you’ve always dreamt of taking your vows. The ruffled tissue and soft chiffons in pastels springs up the entire place. The lush carnations, lilies, mogra, hydrangeas, the glamorous gold details and the bewitching colossal chandeliers are sure to light up the space just the way you want it.

 

 

Aren’t we all in awe of these photographs? Yes, pastels have been dominating the Indian wedding space for quite some time now and we’re drooling over it. So now that we’ve already set the mood board for your wedding we’d like to say- Think Pastel! And your sail from there onwards is as easy as this read.

5 wedding decor ideas infused with the local flair

Whether you are travelling to an exotic far off local, or planning to invite out of town guests to your current home, incorporate the flavors, sights and sound of the local culture to give your guests an enhanced personalized experience.

 

  1. Welcome Bags and favors

Set the tone of the wedding festivities with a welcome bag in their room or upon check in including a welcome drink, map of the venue, wedding itinerary, recommendations for restaurants within walking distance and a list of the main attractions to see while they are in town. Personalize your recommendations with your own favorite spots. Add local favorite snacks and beverages to give guests a preview of what is in store.

  1. Choose a venue with a local character

During your venue search look for sites that genuinely connect with your guests, properties that retain the local charm but are also retrofitted with all modern comforts. An event is more fun when you create ties to the venue that all guests can share.

  1. Decor

When planning your decorations, ask your designer to use locally inspired flowers, plants and other materials. Consider a fusion of styles – something contemporary you love with something purely local for a look that is unique to your wedding.

  1. Customize your menu

Choose your menu basis the uniqueness of your wedding destination like the south Indians, for example, must have their parboiled rice and fish. You do not have to turn your entire wedding into a fiesta, simply request local ingredients throughout your menu, and sampler-size local delicacies as finger foods at your cocktail reception.

  1. Entertainment

When it comes giving a complete experience to your guest, music and entertainment ties everything together. Panjabis’ love their their dhol, keeps the guests moving and is not something you see every day. Another more interactive form of entertainment could be incorporating artisans who are making a handicraft that you can send home with your guests or even a sketch artist to draw portraits.
