The festivities kicked off with a boho Sangeet for a musical night of revelries. Soft white drapes and fairy lights added to the rustic charm of the earthy space setting a relaxed atmosphere, as the couple exchanged rings and spent the evening dancing and enjoying with their loved ones. The bride looked spectacular in a sleek white saree while the groom kept it stylish with an indigo blue suit.
The next morning dawned with an exuberant Haldi ceremony brimming with vibrant decor and fun-filled festivities. A mix of marigolds, sunflowers and yellow drapes set a traditional tone with a modern feel, while red roses added a refreshing pop of color. After a lively ceremony, everyone cooled off in the resort pool.
Imagined in a serene yet regal color palette of white and gold, the wedding decor channeled the couple’s personalities. The minimalistic mandap saw a mix of modern and traditional elements and was crafted by jasmine, rajnigandhas, ornate brass pots, and more. The groom chose a simple yellow achkan for the ceremony, while the bride wore a lemon and blush lehenga.
Advice for couples
“If you are planning a monsoon wedding, a couple of useful tips to keep in mind would be to choose the right kind of outfits and decor elements. Stay away from candles and opt for faux flowers for areas that are not directly visible to the guests, using real ones for only the mandap and centerpieces for a refined look. This way, you can ensure minimal damage in case of rain. Also, be mindful of waterlogging and potential rain-related issues when picking your venue, to avoid inconvenience for yourself and your guests during the celebrations.”
