"Mooh Meetha Hojaye"

Indian are great lovers of food, so whether it is a big fat Indian Wedding or a very Budgeted Wedding, Food is an integral part of the celebration. There is no compromise made in the spread of the buffet of a wedding. The lavish spread of mithai at Indian wedding is something nobody wants to miss.

From the time a couples engaged, to sending invites of the wedding, till the time of bidai, the only way to celebrate and congratulate is by stuffing you with a mithai. Any auspicious occasion in India is incomplete without mithai

Indian mithai's are unique. They are made with sugar, milk, condensed milk & majorly cooked by deep frying. The delicious variety offered is too much to resist, be it Burfi, jalebi, Gulab Jamun, Jhangri, Kaju Katli rolls, Nankhatai, rajasthani Ghevar, milk cake, kalakand, mysore pak, sukhdi, malpua, rasgulla, rasmalai, angoor rabdi.... list is endless

In today's time people have become calorie conscious & health conscious  therefore, sugar free mithai is a must at your wedding. There is a huge variety of sugar sweets like Anjeer Dry Fruit roll, Kaju Katli, Kaju Apple, Rose Bon Bon etc. Although sugar free, these are rich in taste and can be exclusively consumed by people who maintain a tight diet schedule

However, nowadays indian weddings have a delicious Dessert Bar comprising of assorted Indian & Western Desserts like Velvet Cupcakes, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes, Seasonal Baked Puddings, Exotic Fruit Tarts, Cheesecakes, Choco Sticks and much more. The way they are presented including shapes, coating & foils makes all the difference.

Kaliras - Wishes for a Blissful Married Life

Kaliras are chandelier like ornaments worn traditionally by punjabi brides. These are tied to her bangles or chooda by her maternal uncle.Kalira symbolizes warm wishes and blessings which is generally worn for around 40 days after the wedding day.

Originally, Kaliras were made of shells, coconuts or flowers although modern versions may be made from beaten silver, gold, gold plated metals and beads. They are available in many colors to match the bridal outfits.Once the Kaliras are tied, the bride shakes them on the head of unmarried friends and girls of the family. It is believed, that if one of a kalira falls on one of the girls, she is next in the line to be married.

In today's time Choodas & Kaliras are not only worn by punjabi brides but as a trend, by brides of other casts also. Kaliras are blessings of loved one's and wishes for a blissful married life, therefore used as a decorative element too. You can use kaliras to enhance the beauty of anything - use it in mandap area, stage, in chunri for brides entry, gift hampers etc

Music in Indian Wedding

Music plays a very significant role in our Indian weddings. Great Wedding Music creates the right atmosphere and influences the mood of your wedding guests and will ultimately make your wedding one to remember. 

Wedding music and rituals vary from state to state. Each region has folk songs unique to the region. Today, you can choose any type of wedding music you want for your wedding ceremonies. The type & size of group you need for your wedding ceremonies depends on your - ceremony, budget, guest list & venue. Wedding music groups come in all sizes, from one-person band to full wedding orchestras.

Of all the events where you will gather your friends and family to celebrate your marriage, the Hindu wedding ceremony itself will be the most meaningful. For the main wedding ceremony we believe in background music that solely specializes in enhancing the sentiments of your wedding ceremony where the entire music collection is based around the wedding ceremony. Be it the Bride’s entrance, Kanyadaan or Mangal Pheras, play the appropriate Lagna Geet (wedding music) to highlight each symbolic step of the Hindu ceremony.

Today’s weddings have large receptors, where playlists are eager to help you make your wedding music and wedding reception as unique as you are. The idea is to create rich urban fusion, with lounge beats, colorful melodies through the Sarangi, ethnic Rajasthani folk singing with complementing music. The music will be serene enough for conversations to flow easily, and engaging enough to bring out the mood of the night. The music that’s been played at the wedding reception is something that we create during the rehearsals, building a trend of live & pleasing music in Indian Wedding Receptions.

One can also have relaxing instrumental music of Piano, Flute or Guitar with a smooth & inspirational arrangement

Music is perhaps the most universal & sophisticated way to communicate emotions and joys & is absolutely essential in setting the appropriate tone of your wedding ceremony.

It’s always about thinking big & huge - Big wedding, 5 Star properties, lavish Buffet spread, celebrity DJ, Gala Reception and how can we forget large number of guest list.

Choose a destination for wedding that allows you & your guests to relax leisurely in the perfect setting over three or four days. Your guests will warmly remember your wedding for years to come.

Modern chic style wedding allows you to plan your wedding at an unexplored destination or virgin venues like rooftops, cottage homes, army lawns etc...

Skip the formality & get creative, don't be stuck to the traditional wedding timelines. Play with the classic structure of a wedding and make it your own. Loudly announce your "The Day" by hosting an eve - Raising a Toast to the "To Be Weds". Instead of a typical sangeet night invite your guests for a fabulous Pre wedding sit down dinner serving 5 course meals with various artist performances & Vocal singers. Hire a lounge or recreate one, for your reception eve with flute player & pianist in harmony with folk beat boxers
