4 Things That Might go Wrong on Your Wedding Day

By at March 29, 2019 | 10:41 am | 0 Comment

Not everything might go as planned – not even on your wedding day. But remember – this is your special day. You have to be the happiest on this day. You can’t let little things spoil your day – at least not this one. Of course you will have to plan things and make the necessary preparations ahead of time. But if there is something you just can’t control, it is absolutely fine.

As a bride you might have your own dream wedding to look forward to. You try your best to make all the right decisions at all times. You prepare yourself to face every challenge that might show up on your Wedding day. Nevertheless it is always better to have a Plan B just in case something unexpected happens. Here are some of those unexpected situations:

Bad Weather

If there is one thing you will have no control on, on your wedding day, it is the weather. Whether you are planning an outdoor wedding or an indoor one, it is always better to have a weather back-up plan. Always check the forecast; but be prepared for a 100% chance of rain. Have your umbrellas handy and give out a couple of them to your guests. Work with your vendors and see if a tent can be arranged to keep the venue dry. If there are a few drizzles just take them as divine blessings and enjoy the special moments. It might take a little extra budgeting and planning; but all your efforts would be worthwhile.

Traffic Jams

Traffic jams can happen at any time and in any place. So build some buffer time within your schedule. If your ceremony starts at 5:30 PM, you can ask your guests to be there by 5. Offer them a few refreshing drinks. That should keep them happy. If you are not able to reach the venue in time, it doesn’t really matter. No ceremony can happen without the bride. Make arrangements to entertain your guests till you arrive.

Décor going wrong

You might have pictured the perfect wedding; but things may turn out a bit different. If the bouquet is a little different from the one you approved or the linens in the dining room are of the wrong color, there is nothing you can do about it, especially at the last moment. But remember – you are the only one who knows about the mistakes in the décor. Your guests are only going to see the big picture. For them, it is only a beautiful celebration.

Wardrobe malfunctions

With all the rituals and the running around this is not something you can’t expect. But hey – there is always an aunt with a purse full of safety pins and bobby pins. You only have to make sure she is somewhere nearby when you need her. You could even have someone get a hair dryer or a curling iron to the reception. You may not look the way you imagined yourself – but you are still going to look beautiful as long as you are happy.

Keeping calm is the only mantra you need to remember on your wedding day. This will help you handle any situation with a smile on your face.

Traditional Games that add Fun to Hindu Weddings

By at March 22, 2019 | 2:02 pm | 0 Comment

Can you remember the last wedding that you attended? What can you recall about the day? Was it the décor at the venue or the food? Was any special entertainment program arranged? Most importantly did the bride and the groom play any of the traditional marriage games? You might not have noticed; but there certainly are a few such games that make Hindu marriages a lot of fun.

It’s not just the rituals that make up for a Hindu wedding. The traditional games are essential too. Not only do they improve the interaction between the bride and the groom’s side people, they also add a fun element to the wedding. We have compiled an entire list of such traditional games that you can use to make your wedding unique and memorable. Don’t forget to print this article and staple it on to your wedding diary.

Rolling the Coconut

This game is played after the rituals of the marriage are over. The bride and the groom sit facing each other with about a 10 feet distance between them. The couple has to then start rolling coconuts towards each other and try to strike them mid-way. They get three chances to do this. Within these three chances they have to make sure at least one of the coconuts breaks. With all the commentary and constant batter of the guests, this is going to be a lot of fun.

Ring Fishing

Take the wedding rings from the couple and put them in a big bowl. Now fill the bowl with milk, turmeric, and rose petals. To make things a little more complicated, you can also add a few metallic things such as coins, nuts, and bolts. The objective is to find the rings. When the game starts, the bride and the groom are to put one of their hands into this bowl and start searching for the rings. The first one to find both the rings is declared a winner. With the winning prize being an upper hand in the marriage with full bragging rights, things are going to get a lot more competitive and interesting.

Spot Thy Name

The preparation for this game starts at the Mehndi ceremony where in the bride gets the name of her groom inscribed into the design of her Mehndi. The groom has to identify his name before taking his new wife home.

Hiding the Shoe

If you have watched the movie, “Hum Aapke Hain Kaun,” you will be familiar with this game. The bride’s sisters and friends have a major role to play in this game. While the bride and groom are busy performing the rituals of the wedding, they have to somehow find the groom’s shoes and hide them in a safe place. To get his shoes back the groom will have to pay the bride’s sisters and friends, the ‘Shagun’ that is asked for. The negotiation part of this game is going to be the most interesting part of the entire wedding. Apart from the fun, the bride’s side also gets to make some good amount of cash through this game.

You will find many more such games if you ask around and do some research. Add as many as possible to make your wedding a fun-filled event

The Drama of the Hindu Weddings – How to deal with it?

By at March 11, 2019 | 4:18 pm | 0 Comment

A wedding day is supposed to be a beautiful day filled with moments that you can cherish as sweet memories for life. But it is hardly so when it comes to a Hindu wedding. There are so many demands to be fulfilled, rituals to be completed, and arrangements to be done for that one day to go as expected.

When compared to the other weddings, Hindu weddings are full of drama. Whether it is a lavish wedding you have planned or a simple traditional wedding, you will always be hit by the “What-will-people-think” syndrome that is going to cause you a lot of stress and exhaustion. If you can deal with that there is nothing you need to worry about as long as you follow a few steps in the right way.

Finding the Right Venue

The preparations for a Hindu wedding start with finding a venue. This of course depends on the number of people you are inviting and the kind of budget you have in mind. But with so many weddings happening, it is quite a challenge to find the right venue that matches your requirements perfectly.

Making the arrangements

Once you have decided on a venue and paid up the advance, the next thing you need to do is book a priest, a caterer, a photographer, and a decorator. The list may be longer if the wedding is going to be an elaborate affair. Nevertheless, this is generally the easy part of organizing a wedding.

The invites

Your next step is to start making a list of people who are to be invited for the wedding (leaving out a couple of them could turn out to be a costly mistake irrespective of which side you are on).

The world has come a long way towards becoming digital; yet there are lots of people who expect to be invited the traditional way – you have to visit them and invite them cordially with a formal invitation and maybe a gift with sweets. Now how you will find time for this in your busy schedule is something you will have to figure out.

Shopping

Shopping might seem to many as the fun part of the wedding. But it can be stressful, especially when you have a limited budget. The main purchases would include clothes and jewelry for the bride and the groom, clothes for their family members, and return gifts for people attending the wedding. Pleasing everyone while making sure you stay within your budget is not going to be an easy task.

Sailing through the wedding day

The wedding day when most of your friends and family members come to shower their blessings on the couple is not going to be easy either. Your tasks on this day include transportation, boarding and lodging for the Groom’s family, welcome drinks, sumptuous meals, and thoughtful return gifts for the guests, and entertainment arrangements if any, to make sure your guests have those precious smiles on their faces when they leave the venue.

Now you can make most of these things easier by hiring a wedding planner. Have a check list ready and make sure you write down details of all things you may need. Keep the communication going with the wedding planner and make sure everything is organized before-hand. There is going to be a lot of drama; but if you are well-prepared you can still have your share of fun while being an integral part of it.

Lighting

Setting the mood right is very important when holding an outdoor wedding. You can choose from a variety of lighting options including paper lanterns, twinkling lights, stately chandeliers, or pin spot lighting to light up the venue. Make sure you light up the surrounded walkways to provide easy access to rest rooms. You might want to hang a few tea lights or mason jars from nearby tree branches. Rent an extra generator to avoid blackouts during the wedding reception. Have an electrician check out the venue and secure all your lighting fixtures. Keep a ‘lighting pro’ on hand to make sure everything stays in place.

Safety

You might want to clear all the walkways and make your venue safe and wheelchair-friendly if you are having elderly people attending the wedding. Keep some extra umbrellas and shawls just in case anyone needs them. Make sure there are no loose wires lying around the place. Have enough seating spaces ready for your guests.

Menu

The best part of having an outdoor wedding is that you can get creative with your menu. You can have a variety of options of your choice. But make sure you also have lots of cold water and refreshing nonalcoholic beverages on hand. Lemonade, tender coconut, and iced tea can make good staples during the summer months.
