The picture perfect weddingWeddings, whether large extravaganzas or small family affairs, are invariably a style statement, and  a reflection of the personality as well as the beliefs upheld by the groom and bride. A wedding is by far the most celebrated day of our lives, an occasion which is the culmination as it were, of all our adolescent dreams and desires.

No longer just a series of simple traditional ceremonies, marriages have become a carefully orchestrated, designer event, at the heart of which still lies the solemn exchange of wedding vows. This is the day when a large chunk of fantasy and a bit of reality get to meet on a platform of opulence, aimed at making this ‘once in a lifetime event’ a treasury of cherished memories.

Affluence finds its most articulate expression in the way marriages are conducted these days. For families who still believe in the tradition of horoscope matching, this still remains the first rung on the ladder of major happenings before the nuptial knot is finally tied. However, while earlier it was the family elders who scripted and oversaw the agenda, today you rope in the services of a wedding consultant in whose capable hands, the wedding details begin to unfold themselves in a beautiful haze of glamour and glitz.

From the tastefully created invitation cards often accompanied by expensive gifts (in some cases meant only for exclusive invitees) to the colour coordinated themes of the wedding décor, everything is an expression of money power, sophistication and elegantly constructed ostentation. Even the menu – in fact, the menu remains the most telling aspect of a high class wedding where absolutely nothing is left to chance. 

Recently an NRI wedding held in the luxuriant interiors of a farmhouse in Delhi, a dreamy pink affair where the drapes, the centerpieces, the tablecloths and even the attire of the guests and close friends were all variations of the colour pink, was so breathtakingly beautiful that it seemed to have come straight out of a Bollywood film. The food was simply out of the world. Blueberries on a bed of cream, fresh vegetable salad dressed in low calorie sauce, succulent meat and baked fish, lobsters and imported cheese along with truffles and confectionary delights, everything suggested a great deal of thought and planning. The floral arrangements too were in perfect synchrony with the general theme. Orchids, pink tulips and hydrangea formed the floral tapestry.

Once the wedding date has been fixed, the most important activity on the agenda is shopping for bridal wear. This can take from weeks to months and sometimes even a year. Your wedding is that one grand occasion when you will remain the cynosure of all eyes, an occasion which will generate much talk about your appearance for days to come.

Depending on which part of the country you come from, the lehenga and the sari are the most opted for costumes for the bride. Packed into each attire is an admirable amount of oomph cleverly disguised in the garb of tradition.

The colour red, once the only colour chosen as the symbol of a bride, has yielded place to a variety of other colours such as pastels, ivories and pale golds. Elegant shimmer has replaced the heavy glitz of yesteryears.

In matters of dress and make-up, tradition scores over the western and modern look. Fabrics, colours, styles, embellishments and accessories… all add up to make for an overall picture of magnificence. The modern Indian groom aims to look chic in traditional finery. The sherwani, made from fabrics that vary from silks and brocades to viscose and linen blends, has found favour with both the elitist class as well as the wannabes.

The kurta with either an elegantly styled pajama, dhoti or churidar comes a close second in the order of preferences. Today’s groom proudly flaunts a fine blend of ornate clothing and macho elegance.

At the end of the day, no matter how beautifully turned out you both might be, how you feel from within is what really matters. That’s what you call the aura of a bridal couple. So just chill and enjoy this day. It’s that one day which is really yours.
