A ‘Cherry Blossom’ themed reception was the highlight of this elegant wedding in Mumbai
Alifiya and Abizer, who wed in Mumbai, planned exquisite themes for their various functions. They hired WeddingSutra Favorite – At This Point Events and Celebrations to execute their vision, and the team did so flawlessly. Here are some highlights of the celebrations.
Situated amidst the lush backdrop of Mahalaxmi Racecourse, and against the skyline of historical buildings in South Bombay, Tote On The Turf proved to be a perfect venue for the couple’s exquisite sangeet ceremony, and they hosted their regal reception at ITC Grand Central.
The couple’s wedding celebrations began with the fun-filled mehndi ceremony. The groom was welcomed at the venue by bhangra dancers and dhol players who drummed up a heady beat. The open-air event was a bright affair as the venue was decorated with colorful phulkari umbrellas, kites, floral pots, open bicycle rickshaws, traditional carts, and seating arrangements. The bride and groom were all smiles as they were showered with flowers by their guests.
Alifiya picked a light blue embroidered lehenga-choli, which she paired with blue floral jewellery, pearl necklaces and a matha patti. Abizer, on the other hand, donned a green kurta and a burgundy Nehru jacket.
The sangeet ceremony had a classy ‘The Great Gatsby’ theme, and it was held at Tote On The Turf. The decor comprised floral arrangements, Edison bulbs and crystal beaded strings suspended from the ceiling.
The bride donned two different outfits for this function. Her first one was a red dress embellished with delicate embroidery. Her other outfit was a gorgeous emerald green velvet lehenga-choli. The groom looked dapper in a red tuxedo. The dance floor was busy all night with a live band and dance performances by the bridesmaids and groomsmen.
The couple’s grand reception had a ‘Cherry Blossom’ theme. It was an outdoor affair held at the ITC Grand Central in Mumbai. Alifiya picked an embroidered ivory lehenga with a shade of grey at the bottom, along with a heavily embellished grey top and an ivory dupatta. She paired her ensemble with a delicate necklace and earrings. Her classy hairstyle and make-up completed her perfect look. Abizer looked polished and regal in his grey sherwani and beaded neck jewellery, which complimented Alifiya’s outfit. The couple looked like a match made in heaven as they were showered with flower petals when they went on the stage.
