Yes wedding food is important, but wedding sweets and desserts are the new attraction. Having a great spread at the dessert corner is what everyone looks forward to at weddings. Pies, mousses, pastries, doughnuts, and more, not just the usual jalebi and halwa!
More and more couples nowadays are investing in their own wedding websites that have their love story, their wedding story, a list and description of their functions, guest details, reservations and updates of the wedding from the first save-the-date invitation till the last reception party event and the wedding album.
“Dhol pe to sab nachte hai, but khud gaake nachne ka mazza hi kuch aur hai!” Yes, the dhol will always be an integral part of the mehendi function, but the karaoke is what will add freshness and fun to the event.
Did you know about The Significance Of Mehendi Ceremony?
With the initials of the bride and the groom on the wedding cards, posters of the couple dressed as popular movie characters, wedding choreography with dances and skits depicting the story of how they met, to destination weddings at the couple’s favourite location, personalised weddings are the flavour of the season.
Floral patterns seem to be ruling the fashion industry. Unusual colour palettes, small and big floral patterns and motifs along with floral printed fabrics are becoming popular in wedding outfits both for brides and grooms. And looking at their popularity, they aren’t going away any time soon!
Yes, just like weddings in the West, live music by new and upcoming bands that play all of the couple’s favourite numbers are now becoming more and more popular.
With the world almost coming to an end with the increasing pollution, cutting of trees and global warming, why waste more paper and print out hundreds of cards and send them out? Just design a beautiful wedding E-card online (which is also very simple to do) and send them out. You need to make that change, and start a trend for people to follow it!
Gone are the days when the groom just got dressed 15 minutes before the wedding, and sit in the mandap. Grooms of today are even more conscious than their brides when it comes to what to wear, where to shop, and taking care of their skin and hair-care routines. And so we have a new, evolved, smart and stylish breed of grooms now!
Because with busy work schedules and limited time, shopping assistants can be a blessing in disguise! They know what to shop, where to shop and how to fit everything within the budget. Technology is evolving and so are the ways of planning a wedding!

Yes, people are getting aware nowadays about the unnecessary wastage of money, time and resources at multiple functions and week-long weddings! “Chat mangni, pat viyah” is the new thing. Mehendi ki raat, engagement the next day followed by a quick wedding leading to the after-wedding dinner! All in a day’s work! And, where should they spend their money you ask? On the honeymoon, where else?
Gone are the days when brides wore heavy lehengas and donned kilos worth of jewellery on their wedding day. Brides now prefer to be comfortable instead. Thus, light weighing, elegant and classy jewellery with a good mix of traditional patterns along with light weight wedding outfits in soothing shades is the new trend!
The bed sheets, the mixer grinders, flower vases, and other such things that people give as wedding gifts are usually passed on ahead at other weddings as the couple has either already bought all of that or they do not require it at all. Also, everybody has their own taste when it comes to bed covers and other decorative items. Gifting cash is useful both for you and the couple as you do not need to stress over what to gift and will they like it or not. And, the couple too can use that money as per their needs and buy something which they actually need and like.
In short, this is the new face of the Indian wedding and its industry. So, make sure you use some or all of these at your own or a wedding in your house to not only make it a memorable one, but to let your guests have a blast as well!
