There is no doubt about it: Indian weddings are very often nothing short of spectacular, as every family seeks to outdo the last wedding that has been held. Often, there is no expense spared on Indian wedding decorations which is why the occasions are so stunning and memorable. However, logic dictates that – unless money is no object – you should set a budget and at least try to keep somewhere near to it. It is possible to have amazing décor without actually breaking the bank. At Kenza Creations, we should know because it’s what we do.
We know all sorts of endless crafty tricks that can make it seem as though you have spent a small fortune when in reality you have not. This is part of the art behind what we do: producing décor that has your guests gasping in amazement yet keeping within your budget.
The very first ceremony that you may wish to hold is an engagement ceremony. If you are going to do this, it is a good idea to keep things on the minimal side and make it a fairly small ceremony so that you don’t eat too big a hole in your overall budget.
If you are going to have a sangeet, which is often a pre-wedding high point, bringing the two families together as it does, there are many ways you can decorate this night too. One idea is to choose a venue with low lighting and then dot small lanterns, candles, tea lights, and so on around it as the only source of illumination. This makes for a relaxed, yet intimate atmosphere.
Then, of course, there is the Mendhi. This is an all-day affair and, if we’re honest, is really the girls’ day out. And why not? The boys have their stag parties, and we girls have our Mendhi. At Kenza, we can hire your Mendhi stage and props, and we can create them together in such a way that it will give you a colourful and vibrant theme for your party. You can sit back and relax, and enjoy the singing, dancing, and eating. Your Mendhi stage doesn’t have to be big to be beautiful, and again it is a good idea to save as much of your budget as possible for the main event tomorrow.
Of course, when it comes to the big day itself the whole spotlight is going to be on the two of you, and you really need to put some thought into the wedding stage. It is where the real magic takes place where the two of you exchange garlands and become one. You can let your imagination loose on the wedding stage and have it decorated with drapes and flowers in whatever colours you choose. The wedding stage can be raised with some small steps leading on to it so that you are physically above everyone else and the centre of attention in the same way as the actors on a stage in the theatre. The difference is that you are not actors because this is for real.
When we create your wedding stage at Kenza Creations we will always go the extra mile. You can have garlands of flowers hanging down from the ceiling; special lighting effects; a single colour theme or the use of multiple, but blending, colours; statues; and furniture that exudes elegance and prosperity. It really is worth spending some money on the wedding stage for one very good reason: it is not a rehearsal and you only get to do it once, so it has to be right from the get-go.
The wedding ceremony itself is where many people choose to invest in lots of flowers, and yet they are important in other areas as well. For example, the wedding cars can, and some would say should be covered in bouquets and garlands of flowers all over them. Indeed, we would say that you cannot possibly have too many flowers: some people now have them hanging in huge garlands form the ceiling the whole length of the banqueting tables.
At Kenza Creations we can produce whatever you wish. You will be amazed at what we can do on a relatively small budget, so give us a call and let’s sit down together and work out a plan.
