Wedding Cake

After the Bangalore wedding ceremony is over then the partying begins.  It is your reception and one of the big events is that you cut your cake. Here are three tips on selecting a wedding cake.

  • There are always new trends in wedding cakes.  Look through some bridal magazines to get some wedding cake ideas.  You don’t have to settle for the traditional white vanilla cake with heavy white frosting. All that matters is that the wedding cake tastes and looks good.
  • At least two months before your wedding, take your ideas to a Bangalore area bakery that has a cake designer on staff.  Good wedding cake designers are in demand and get booked very quickly.
  • Include the groom in choosing cake decorations. Usually most of the wedding planning is left to the bride, but thinking up ideas for cake decorations can be really fun for the bride and groom to do together.

Bridal Gown

Shopping for your bridal gown is an essential part of preparing for your wedding in Bangalore. Here are some tips to do it right.

  • Buy your gown from a Bangalore area bridal shop.  You want to actually see and touch your wedding dress before you buy it, so shopping online for your gown doesn’t make any sense.
  • Start shopping at least two months before your wedding day.  If the bridal shop has to order the gown you’ve chosen you’ll need that much time, especially if alterations are needed.
  • Have an idea of what you want before you shop. You can get a very general idea of the different types of gowns by looking through bridal magazines. Then, move on to surfing the Internet; there are hundreds of Web sites where you can view wedding gowns.  But remember that you are not buying online – you are only looking at different styles.
  • When researching, cut out (or print if using the Internet) pictures of the bridal gowns you like.  On the back of each, write down what you like about that gown. Take the pictures with you when shopping so you tell the sales person at the bridal shop.

Reception Venue

The best Bangalore wedding reception sites book up fast, so choose and reserve one early in your wedding planning.  Here are tips on how to choose a great Bangalore wedding reception location.

  • First impressions are important.  If you don’t like a place the first time you visit it, move on and continue your search.
  • Make sure the venue is large enough, taking into account not just the number of your guests, but also the band or DJ stage, the dance floor, and a place for the wedding cake.
  • Parking is a big concern. If you find a great venue except it has insufficient parking for all your guests, then you have to find a place close where your guests can park.
  • Lighting can influence the overall feel of the reception, so make sure the venue is well lit. Light sets the overall mood, so make sure you see the entire reception area lit during your walk through.
  • Ask how much you have to pay up front.  You should never pay more than fifty percent of the total rental cost up front.  Before you put a deposit down, get a written statement of their refund policy

Limousine

Reserve a limousine for your Bangalore wedding shortly after you’ve chosen a date and a location for your wedding.  Here are five tips to help you when hiring a limo for your Bangalore wedding.

  • Find out what make and model is the limousine you’re renting. Make sure this information is in any contract or rental agreement you sign.  You don’t want a limousine from an old fleet.
  • Ask whether the rental charges include the driver’s gratuity and drinks you pour from the bar that comes with the limousine.

When you are getting married, what better way to show your appreciation for your family and friends than with a memorable return gifts! We will discuss the history of return gifts, the meaning and what makes a return gift so unique that everyone will remember that special day for years to come. The tradition of giving return gifts can be traced back for centuries. It was used to thank guests for coming and a way to give back to make sure the guests were satisfied.

Wedding Planners in BangaloreWealthy European aristocrats, kings and queens usually gave return gifts. The most common favor given were small gift box favors called a bonbonniere. These bonbonnieres were usually made of precious stones, porcelain or even crystal and gold. Hundreds of years ago when sugar was the most sought after commodity, it would be considered extremely thoughtful for one to receive sugar as a gift. Edible favors anyone? In some cultures the bride and groom were looked at as having a special power, or good luck charm. So the return gifts are a way for the newly married husband and wife to pass along their good luck to their guests in form of a gift. Some examples of good luck are almonds, more specifically five almonds. The almonds usually would represent fertility, wealth, health and happiness.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD RETURN GIFT?

1. Make sure it is meaningful. Try to pick something that symbolizes your love for each other.

2. Pick something that is practical. No one will remember your special day if it is not something that they can use, or at the very least, look at on a regular basis. Perhaps a personalized wine bottle opener? Who doesn’t love a good wine every now and then? Personalized return gifts such as a bottle opener, are not only practical, they are beautiful!

3. Everyone loves to eat right? Well how about an edible favor? Edible favors are becoming more and more popular these days. What is the most popular you ask? Chocolate of course! Now comes the question, what type of chocolate should I pick? Well, milk chocolate is probably the best edible return gifts to pick. Sources say that if you like milk chocolate you are a kid at heart! It also symbolizes a nostalgic memory…like old time love. Every time your guests snack on this chocolate they are sure to remember your special day.

4. Give something that has a lot of cultural significance. For modern Indian weddings, pretty much anything goes. If you are short on ideas, make it something that means a lot to your lifestyle. For example, try giving out a lucky elephant! Elephants are known for good luck. If you are of Spanish decent, the men give cigars and the women give out chocolate. In Italy, you can expect to receive a chocolate covered almond. In Russia, many favors consistently have very small pictures, small candles and many trinkets for the guests.

Whatever your decide to give to your guests as a return gift, make sure it is thoughtful, has meaning and at the very least, make it something they can use over and over for years to come!
