Top Trends and Tips to Organise Your Summer Indian Wedding

Spring and summer are the favourite seasons of the year for big Indian weddings. Obviously the weather is a lot better, and everything just seems to be more relaxing and enjoyable. It’s the perfect occasion to celebrate something special like a wedding during the glorious summer months. If you’re looking for tips on how to organise your summer wedding perfectly, here is all you need to know to arrange your dream summer wedding.

The Feel and the Look:

For day events, choose an airy and light theme for your wedding decor. More and more, people are opting for less traditional Indian wedding themes and going for something a lot more modern. Of course, they always keep the most important traditional element that is needed to have their perfect Indian wedding day. Choose pastel hues with brightly coloured jasmine, mogra, marigold and other flowers arrangements. If you want something big and original, have an artificial water fountain, which is really refreshing when the weather is hot. Also add dupattas in georgette or chiffon again with pastel colours and adorned with a bit of bling, which will add a perfect modern/contemporary mix to the venue. Shades of orange and pink are a combination for a more traditional theme, which is also trendy and festive.

For evening events, a new trend is creating an Arabian nights ambience during an Indian summer evening. The decor to include is antique styled lanterns and low seating arrangements, or even cushions dotted around the entire venue to complete the theme. If you want to add something extra, floating flower arrangements in brass will bring the theme together perfectly. For the music, keep it seductive and soft for your guests.

Something important to remember during the hot days is air coolers and mosquito repellent, a must have for an outdoors event!

The Ensemble:

It’s always a difficult choice for women to choose their perfect wedding ensemble. Why? Because women want to wear something comfortable, elegant and classy all at the same time. However, you also have to think about the hot weather so not melt in the heat. Wear weather-friendly silhouettes, light fabrics and soft colours. For the design of your outfit, keep it elegant and simple with gold detailing for a regal look.

Make-up should be subtle and natural, focus on the make-up around your eyes and lips with summer shades of eye shadow and lipstick. And top tip is to always keep wet wipes and a translucent powder with you, so it’s a lot easier to touch up your make-up.

The venue:

In India, the weather is unbearably hot in most places, and from April to June it gets extremely humid. You should choose an air-conditioned banquet or party hall: the most practical venue for a summer wedding. Concerning the customisation of your venue, add mildly perfumed air, fresh flower arrangements and eye-catching centrepieces.

For those who prefer outdoors celebrations, consider a poolside option. It’s really a relaxing atmosphere to have a swimming pool with cool aqua shades. If you aren’t a big fan of swimming pools, you can opt for a venue near lakes or holiday resorts on beaches, this way you will have a mix between an indoor and outdoor venue.

The Cuisine:

You can opt for baked varieties, as this is an option that is always appreciated by everybody. For the drinks during an Indian summer, it’s important to have coconut water, nimboo pani, aam panna, khus, kokam and flavoured lassi over aerated drinks. All fresh food is also recommended such as salad bars, fresh fruit stalls and chaat counters. It can be a good idea to bring barf ka gola, ice cream and kulfi vendors.
