Indian weddings- boring? NOPE. These ideas are impossibly fun.
#1. Have a cricket match before the wedding
What better way than to break the ice than with a cricket match between the boys and girls side?
#2. Have a DJ request box on your Sangeet
Turn your coasters into 'DJ Request chits' that guests can scribble on. Drop them in a box for the DJ to listen to
Everyone gets hungry during the midnight feras. Ensure you keep everyone sufficiently happy with a midnight popcorn cart serving warm popcorn. One salted and caramel mix please for us !
#4.Notes to be opened on your 1st anni, 5th anni
Have people leave you notes in boxes labelled "1st Anni", and "5th Anni". Keep these locked up and open them only on your first and fifth anniversary to see what everyone wrote !
#5. Wedding Tattoos:
Make your mark- with personalised wedding tattoos that your bridal party can wear !
Decor by Wedding Commitments
#6. Have a truck in your mehendi serve up cocktails :
Nothing like a bar truck to get the mood going for one big party
#7. Have a 'make your own golgappa' station
Have taps dispensing sweet and spicey water and let people mix up their own golgapps. Jazz it up with flavoured water as well - thai flavoured golgappa anyone?

#8. Let the groom enter in a vintage car
Nothing like an old vintage car to make an entry
#9. Serve Alcoholic Chuskis
Vodka Spiked Kala Khatta anyone? Just make sure the kids don't get their hands on these !
#10. Have a sufi night
Go sufi one day with hiring a live singer, arabian decor and sheeshas !
#11. Put your parents wedding pictures somewhere in the wedding
Nothing like a bit of nostalgia to jerk those tears. Have a seperate area celebrating your parents wedding!
#12. Have a fun photobooth
Get a giant polaroid photobooth
#13. Put a chandelier in your mandap
Nothing like a bit of glamour during the feras and soft glow of the chandelier sparkling through!
Use grass carpeting to cover the walls of your inside venue- giving it an outdoor forest feel! We know Devika Narain has designed one such event -putting grass carpeting on the walls!
#15. Serve up Chaat papri in martini glasses
Put blow whistles on each table so the audience can cheer the people performing on stage
#17. Dandiya sticks
Use Dandiya Sticks as wedding favors- let your guests even pick up a couple during the sangeet
Have a box with chappals that women can change into for hours of dancing!
#19. Put your love story on the board
So everyone knows YOU guys a bit better
#20. Let people take polaroid shots and string them together.
Our real bride Rupali not only strung polaroid shots together on this string, but the photos served as name tags for table arrangements
Who can make these ideas possible? All the people on our Dream Team ofcourse!
