When a wedding planner gets married herself, you can imagine the wedding to really pop, especially the decor! That's what we noticed about Neha and Gaurav's Wedding in Thailand, with Neha being the Founder and Director of Signatures by Neha and Foreign Wedding Planners ! She had a two-day intimate wedding abroad, with only about 35 close family members and friends as they did not want a big wedding- but it did have some neat little decor ideas and cute favour ideas! Over to her now, as she takes us through it!

The Unique Decor
"So the events we had were - Day 1: Mehendi Lunch and Pool Party Dinner & Day 2: Wedding with Lunch. Evening was followed by Cocktails Reception and then a Sangeet."
Mehendi with Kites & Marigold
"We wanted to keep it really colourful and casual. Keeping in mind that its an afternoon event and it would be at a venue called Swan Garden, which has little ponds with fish and a lot of natural greenery. We took inspiration from 'Kites' and added desi-tadka by having a Truck-bar and LOTS of marigold strings."

The Wedding Favours
"We gave away favours of hand-made purses and bindis for mehndi, which were hand-picked by me from streets of Janpath. For our pool party, we had these lovely Thai pashmina stoles for everyone. For the wedding, we gave small purple pouches of mixed nuts and lavender pouches of Potpourri for all. Since it was a day wedding, we also gave wooden hand fans in beige to all guests. For the Reception, we gave these beautiful cocktail rings to all ladies, hand-picked from Chandni Chowk. A special mention to Thai wicker baskets with leather straps, which we sent to all rooms filled with all kind of savouries and eatables. These bags were intended to be uses as souvenirs later and also served as beach/pool bags for all who wanted to carry them.
