Indian Wedding Planning Tips for a Rainy Wedding

No matter how much you prepare for your wedding day, somethings are still not in your hands like weather. Even if you have checked the forecast earlier, Mother Nature can still play its role. Yes, it may rain on your D-day.

A rainy wedding may sound utterly romantic but it calls for serious planning. Rain should not dampen your spirit, so one has to make the arrangements accordingly. Here are few Indian wedding planning tips to make your wedding a memorable one, without rain playing havoc.

Indian Wedding Planning Tips for a Rainy Wedding! | Bride Smiling Under the Rain

Bride’s Make-up
No bride would want her make-up and hair to get spoiled on the best day of her life. So, to avoid this nightmare from turning into reality, ask your make-up artist to use water-proof and water resistant cosmetics on your big day. Make sure your make-up lasts long especially your eye-liner and mascara. Use make-up spray to seal the make-up in its place.

If you get little wet, don’t panic and wipe off your face as it will remove your make-up. Instead just pat your face lightly and you are good to go. You can also opt for air-brush make-up as it has tendency to last longer than the usual one. So, don’t freak out while doing Indian wedding planning in monsoon and make the most of it.

Turn Bane into Boon 

Rains are usually associated with chaos and mud. But if planned properly, this inclement weather can become the perfect backdrop for your wedding. Generally, Indian wedding planning is done for winter season but if you are someone who likes to break the norms, monsoon wedding is just perfect. 

One can get one’s favourite venue at cheaper rates as weddings in monsoon season are unconventional. Also one can bargain with caterers and decorators and can get pocket-friendly prices.

Make your List 'Rain-checked’
No Indian wedding planning is complete without a rain-check. Even if you are expecting a dry day on your wedding, one should be equipped with the ‘Plan-B ’just in case it pours.  Make sure you book an indoor wedding venue.

And if you are daring enough to go for an outdoor location, ask your wedding planner for the water-proof tents. Along with this, arrange the umbrellas beforehand for the guests. Also, arrange for carpools and hire few cabs that can pick and drop your guests in case of a rain shower.

Power Backup
As soon as monsoon hits the country, we all face the common problem of power cuts. So, to avoid this disaster on your crucial day, make sure you arrange for the power backup while doing wedding planning in India. It’s very important to have power backup facility so that you can enjoy an uninterrupted wedding.

Rain-Theme Décor
If you are thinking out-of-the box by doing Indian wedding planning in monsoon season, the décor should be in conformity with the rain theme.  You can bring the essence of rainy season by experimenting with fountains, lots of colorful umbrellas and rainbow inspired furniture. Also, you can add a touch of rain theme by decking up the venue with lots of aromatic candles and artificial flowers.

Menu Must-Have’s
Rainy season is synonymous with famous Indian chai and pakora. Chai and pakoras make the lethal combination and is a must have for every Indian on a rainy day.  So, if you are planning a quirky monsoon wedding, go ahead by introducing a stall of desi chai and pakora.

Indian wedding planning for monsoon season is incomplete without mouth-watering jalebis.  Live jalebi counters will definitely curb the craving for guests with sweet tooth. Lots of soups and rain themed candies for kids will be another highlight of the wedding.

Rain Dance
Chuck out the regular sangeet ceremony from your Indian wedding planning list and surprise your friends and relatives with the rain dance party.  Let the guests tap their feet on classic monsoon songs of Bollywood and beat the heat with rain-dance.

Also, you can arrange pool party to get the real feeling of monsoon. You can take the party to another level by bringing in the props like raincoats, rain boots and umbrellas. I’m sure it will be a big hit among the guests and they will remember your wedding forever.

Photo-Shoot in Rain
One of the most significant aspects in Indian wedding planning is the couple’s photo-shoot.  And getting your photo-shoot done in rain is way beyond adorable. Not just you can have fun in the rain with your beloved but raindrops in background gives an effect of millions of shining diamonds.

Trust me; the photographs will be artistic, magical and stunning. But make sure, your photographer is willing to shoot in rain and is experienced enough to get the right click.

Bridal Indian Jewellery and Top Bridal Trends

Bridal Indian Jewellery is an extremely significant and integral part of the styling and appearance of the Indian bride on her big day. Essentially the bridal look is not actually considered to be complete unless the bride to be is showcasing every piece of jewellery that is intended and chosen for her. 

Traditionally, within most Indian weddings, the bride wears a variety of statement gold bridal Indian jewellery, similar to how every country has its own bridal trends. Among these countries, Indian weddings are widely considered the most glamorous.

The significant occurrence of marriage is an extremely special one for most people. In India, it is considered to be a very sacred and special bond. An Indian woman considers the day of her marriage to be the most important and biggest day in her life. To make this special day perfect, arrangements go on for a number of months within the Indian households. Bridal Indian Jewellery plays an extremely important role within Indian weddings; the Indian bride is normally decorated from head to toe in gorgeous bridal jewellery that accompaniments both her attire and personality.

On par with Bridal Indian Jewellery, bridal attire trends are always changing, and brides often strive to be at the head of their game when it comes to following the top and most luxurious trends, here are our top bridal trends from the most recent Indian Bridal Fashion Week, that stood out to us as being one of the best we've seen so far!

First is rich colours and Mirror work. Designer Suneet Varma was specifically inspired by the rich coloured hand-painted and crafted architecture of ‘Shekhawati’, a well known region in Rajasthan. His collection consisted of vibrant reds and deep fuchsia, perfect for a bride looking to turn heads. Kangana Ranaut stole the show in a deep red coloured saree, heavily embroidered and every inch of glamorous.

Next is the unique colour trend, and the colour of choice is blue. Funnily enough blue is an unusual choice for bridal wear, but it looks beautiful for more reasons than one. To get the most out of this unusual tone trend, add contrasting colours such as reds, oranges, maroons, and a touch of gold to accomplish a opulent look just like the one showcased by Ashima Leena's Jashn Bridal Collection. Her colourful bodice was an instant hit for it’s unique colour contrast.

Last but not least is the Cape trend, it would be fair to state that Sonam Kapoor was the first person introduce this trend when she wore a unique cape over her saree at Cannes Film Festival. But most recently, popular designer Jyotsna Tiwari paired a stunning sheer cape over a beautifully structured gown that made it look all that more special!

Bright like an Indian Bridal Dress!

Dear all,

You know how beautiful and detailed indian bridal dresses are...
They are characterized by the embroideries and the precious appliques: my favorite are the mirror worked embroideries.

I recently read some articles about it! Here you can find the most interesting one that I found. Enjoy!

From | Mirror Mirror

"Mirror embroidery originated in India in the 17th century. It is also called shisha or shisheh work, which means glass in Persian. This work involves fine craftsmanship to hold down pieces of glass or mirror on the fabric by embroidery threads. It is a kind of embroidery that was first found on garments worn by the traditional folklore in central and west India. It is a rather tedious process but is definitely worth." [Read More]

The International Star Iggy Azalea in Indian Bridal Dress

She's from Australia, raps like she's from America but Iggy Azalea has looked to India for inspiration in her new music video.

Wearing an array of indian bridal dress and dancing in the traditional style, the hip hop artist tries to translate the Indian sound in the song Bounce through the vibrant visuals on screen.

From riding an elephant to leading a dance troupe, the video descends into the psychedelic, and soon Iggy, 22, becomes the star in her own Festival Of Colours.

The Australian model-turned rapper begins by wearing a red sari complete with veil, headdress and traditional jewellery, composed by Indian earrings, Indian bracelet, Indian necklace and a Indian Tikka.

At one point Iggy wears a full white sari, before getting pelted by colourful paints by local children, which could also show the Indian culture leaving an impression on the Western rapper.

If you don't know her yet, watch her new music video:
