This Mumbai Couple Had A “Game Of Thrones” Sangeet and we love it!

Shaurya and Sanjana Mehta are big Game of Thrones fans. So when they planned their wedding, something related to Game of Thrones being part of it was only natural and we must say they made it absolutely fantastic.

The idea was first suggested as a joke when their families sat down to discuss themes for the wedding. But soon, it stuck.

Shaurya, who originally came up with the idea, says, “I first thought of it for the wedding and the very next thought of ‘The Red Wedding’ got me to choose it for the Cocktail / Sangeet.”

The couple made their entry carrying the Stark and Lannister sigils and were greeted by a sword salute by their close friends.

These colorful glasses and table centerpieces can sync in well with the overall theme of a cocktail reception, but would not work well with an Indian Reception Dinner 🙂

 

Molecular Gastronomy at Weddings: A new trend catching up in India

 

molekularna_kuchnia14

With every wedding we help plan, the one common request has always been to do something different, something that the guests will remember and talk about for years to come. And we love introducing our clients to new trends that bring a smile to their faces.

One of our favourite wow-factors is the new trend currently making inroads in India, of molecular gastronomy. Molecular gastronomy is a culinary innovation, where food scientists study the chemicals and reactions that go into cooking, and come up with unique new ways of mixing ingredients with experimental and never seen before dishes. They work with equipment that might look right out of a chemistry lab, and produce food that is a new experience in itself, a burst of visuals, flavours and drama appealing to all your senses!

With the cult following obtained by Master Chef, the Indian culinary scene is soon becoming more and more about presentation followed by unique flavour and texture combinations. And molecular gastronomy offers all of that and so much more!

Imagine spoons carrying soup bubbles which burst in warm flavours in your mouth. Cocktails letting out colourful smoke as you sip them. Ice spheres carrying unique cocktails which need to be cracked in your glass. Mushroom soup prepared in the form of tea in front of your eyes, complete with truffle powder that looks like sugar. A globe of potato shreds that ends up tasting like the most amazing chaat you’ve ever had. Paan flavoured candy floss served at the end of the meal. And mishti dahi palette cleansers offered between courses.

A few Indian restaurants and chefs have started specialising in molecular gastronomy, some of whom also offer catering services. While it might not be practical to have the entire food menu based on molecular gastronomy, having one special counter serving select dishes would be ideal. But do remember, molecular gastronomy is as much about the theatrics and wonder as it is about the amazing new tastes, and the preparation and presentation require time. So if your wedding has a large number of guests, you might have to set up multiple counters to ensure everyone is able to experience the histrionics about to unfold for them. Such counters are definitely must-haves for classy cocktails, and go very well with themed events.

While the portions are usually measured, the play of flavours on your guest’s taste buds will leave them in awe and wonder, with a blissful taste and experience they won’t really be able to describe in words!

 

 

Because You Know We're All About The Drapes - Not Tables!

Because You Know We’re All About The Drapes – Not Tables!

Drapes have the ability to magically transform the dullest of places into a visual treat. Whether you have a particular color scheme or a theme running through your wedding or not, a beautifully designed ceiling drape with the right amount of lighting can add volumes to your wedding decor.

There are many ways to go about decking up your venue with drapes – you can either let them fall from the ceiling or take the ends of each fabric and attach it to where the ceiling and the walls meet, to give a romantic tent-like effect.

Lights and drapes get along like a house on fire; when you have monochrome drapes you can project colorful lighting on these drapes for a better effect. If your drapes are already colored, you can keep the setting to a minimal amber or house lighting.

Here are some of our favorite draping ideas which we’ve used with our weddings:

The road ahead… Post Engagement.

What kind of a wedding do you want?

The one with a groom.” – said Jude Deveraux who is well known for her historical romances.

Unfortunately in today’s times, a wedding encompasses more than just a groom. It is a blend of families, friends, responsibilities, decisions and some major decisions. Yours will be such! As soon as most couples get engaged they tend to feel like the helpless employee of a call centre – the ones who get bombarded with every question they never seem to have the answer for. Who, when, what, where and why seems to be the start to every conversation regarding the wedding and at times like these, the only way to have an answer is by creating a list. Yes! A to-do list. Just when you thought these lists only existed in school or at the workplace, you’ll be surprised. These lists will stay with you till THE DAY and perhaps later (for memories of course).

Work within a framework

Once he pops the question, a good idea would be a systematic approach to planning the wedding. The two questions that you have to ask yourselves before you start prepping up are: Will it be a small, intimate wedding or a big, copious one? Secondly, will it be a Local one or a Destination one? Once you have these questions answered, you give yourself a framework to work within.

Create a budget

Like with every other event you may have organized before, the most important factor is setting a realistic budget and getting the most of that budget. Nobody wants to “settle in” for something they aren’t completely satisfied with – not at least on this day that comes ‘once in a lifetime’ (for the most of us).

Get assistance

Up until this point your enthusiasm levels will probably be high and you will to take on everything yourself will soar. This is partially due to the fact that you are visualizing fine drapes, enchanting music and your partner exuding love and romance. But, when you realize everything comes at a cost and a cost you are not sure of or don’t know how much to negotiate for, you’ll realize the need for assistance. Opt for a wedding planner to help you streamline your thoughts.

Opt for a specialized and  experienced team

Professional wedding planners not only assist you with making the right decisions but they also help you see different aspects of the wedding you may have not accounted for. Think about your wedding set in the backdrop of a beautiful Mughal theme, you and your partner in all your fineries, traditional entertainment for guests and then throw in your regular photographer (who perhaps charged a little less than the one recommended by the planner) who hasn’t styled the shots right. Years later do you want to open a wedding album that doesn’t make you relive the memories? Thus we stress the importance of specialized wedding companies who look at every part of the process to give you a beautiful complete picture.

We assure you, by choosing not just any wedding planner but the best wedding planner in your city, your role remains the same. You stay in control of the big day while your wish is their command. The master plan or what we call the checklist stays with you thus giving you an entire idea of the tasks involved, who is responsible for them and by when it will be achieved and you in turn enjoy the benefits of the stress being taken off you for a swap of spare time to actively participate in the fun and frolic of the festivities.
