Meetha and Prashant’s wedding celebrations was no short of ‘A Dreamy Affair’, it was among the most anticipated weddings of 2022; the celebrations for our Sabyasachi Bride took shape over a nine – month detailed planning and conceptualizing journey managed by Vivaah Celebrations under the leadership of globally renowned wedding planner Rahul Kumar in Dubai.
The Royal Habtoor Palace hosted the destination wedding over a three-day period, with guests enjoying a variety of events as part of the lavish celebrations. It all began with our energetic bride’s desire for a spectacular fairytale wedding. Every element and aspect of this wedding celebration was significant and personalized to our bride and groom’s likes and preferences.
The first event was the Puja and Behrana where there was spiritual singing by traditional folk artists to commence the auspicious occasion.
The following morning, guests went to Firefly Terrace for a colourful, classy and chic Mehendi Lunch. The immersive tunnel with hanging dreamcatchers and other traditional ornaments kicked off the guest experience. Before entering the colourful venue, attendees passed through this tunnel on their way to the Indian Kitsch Art Photo-booth. Interactive artists such as the bangle maker with cart and setup, the peanut maker, the paan waala and many others added to the overall experience. Our mixologists also added to the colour with their vibrant cocktails and coolers. Throughout the day, there was a lot of dancing while DJ Nitesh was spinning at the decks.
The evening went on to an elevated Bollywood Oscars themed extravaganza. This evening featured illuminated posters of the couple as well as a red carpet media wall with MC Abhijeet interviewing guests. The guests were amazed by the large trophy sculptures that were displayed throughout the pre-function area.
Once guests entered the V Hotel’s Amazing room, they were astounded by the arrangement, which included a beautiful fairy light dance floor and a lit up stage with lightbulbs around it. Elegant centrepieces with trophies, clapboards, movie reels, and more portraying the theme of Bollywood and the Oscars were also a part of this elegant setup. Finally, at the end of the ballroom, a giant immersive gold bar counter with sparkles, shimmer, and #PrashuKuchMeethaHojaye, the hashtag of our gorgeous couple was incorporated. Our outstanding skilled mixologists had a lot of molecular activity going on at the bar and kept the guests entertained with their unique creations.
The evening began with the couple’s romantic reveal from the balcony while exchanging rings. The magnificent sight appeared to be straight out of a Bollywood movie. The duo then took came down and joined the audience for the high-energy sangeet performances choreographed by DANS.
Their engagement was commemorated by a spectacular cake and the popping of a champagne bottle. The dance floor party continued until sunrise, with interactive artists joining them on the dance floor.
The wedding day began with Pujas and ceremonies, followed by the Groom’s Procession along the Habtoor Palace’s pathway in his vintage vehicle. The Royal Brass Band led the procession along the route as he made his entrance like a Maharaja.
Our Sabyasachi bride entered the lovely site with her flower chaadar, which was adorned with red flowers. As our bride stepped in dressed as a Maharani, it was yet another scenario straight out of a Bollywood film.
The Grand Reception was the most anticipated, magical, and dreamy affair. For this Ethereal affair, Cinderella was used as inspiration. Meetha, our bride, was dazzling in her opulent gleaming gown. Our groom found her shoe and slipped it on, knowing she was the one, and they wowed the guests with their white horse and carriage as they made their grand entry. For all of the guests, this was a surreal sight to see.
As soon as Meetha and Prashant arrived at the venue, they cut the cake and popped the bottle, pouring champagne on the champagne tower with low fog, sparks, and other spectacular effects, followed by their first dance. As their first dance came closer to the end, they invited the remaining couples to join them on the dance floor to recreating the Cinderella scene on the romantic song.
While the night progressed into party mode, we had Walter Scalzone, a renowned percussionist, join us and provide an unforgettable experience for the guests by performing a champagne performance with water drums.
