Floral Blooms for your Wedding Celebrations

Families globally are beginning to understand the significance of unique floral elements for their celebrations. Flowers can be implemented in numerous ways throughout your beautiful Wedding Celebrations, from bouquets and boutonnieres to exquisite floral centerpieces, guest experiences, and flower petals down the aisle. These blossoms can be utilized in various ways. 

Flowers are a vital element of any wedding celebration; they have the power to enhance the ambiance, beautify the venue and create memorable moments for your unforgettable day. Vivaah Celebrations identifies beautiful ways in which florals are used to wow guests at your Wedding Celebrations. 

Guest Welcome

Every wedding experience starts with the welcome of your loved ones. One way to use flowers is  to create a welcome experience by giving out a rose blossom to your guests upon their arrival at the Wedding Destination. This can be something handed over at the airport or the venue.

If you’d like to give out at the venue, this may be in the form of a boutonniere for men, an accessory for women, or simply a flower handed over to them, but it most definitely would touch your guests’ hearts and set the mood for the celebration. 

Floral Jewelry

The inclination of floral jewelry has continued to pick up by chic brides again, and the trend seems like it’s only growing amongst these gorgeous brides. Day events such as the Mehendi and Haldi have been opportunities for brides to flaunt their beautiful floral jewelry with their vivid attires. 

Any bride can implement this jewelry for her big day. From traditional events to a simple lunch or even her big wedding day, floral jewelry can be hair accessories, floral bangles, necklaces, or even floral earrings, making you look like you’ve come out straight of a fairytale. Should you wish to go more traditional, floral jewelry can also be anklets, maang ka tikka, or other hand accessories; the options are limitless. 

Wedding Garlands  

 

Exchanging Wedding Garlands has been a tradition that has been carried forward over the years. These garlands are made of fresh flowers; thus, using the right choice of flowers and ensuring that the garlands match your bridal outfits and the decor around you is very important. Using the right flowers to compliment the theme can make a huge difference. 

Bridal Bouquets and Boutonnieres 

The use of Fresh flowers for bridal bouquets and boutonnieres is one of the most elegant ways to implement flowers on your big day. There’s a variety of flowers you can use while ensuring they match the outfits. These boutonnieres are perfect for your Groom and groomsmen while the bride carries the beautiful bouquet. If you aspire to add some color to the bridesmaids, they can even have an elegant floral hair clip to match the others. 

Wedding Decor  

Any wedding decor is crucial as it sets the mood, vibe, ambiance and beautifies the venue. Using fresh flowers and implementing them in your decor is only going to make your venue stunning. Centerpieces can be designed and made with fresh flowers, whether peonies, hydrangeas, or roses, or a mix of all. Brides also tend to love a heavy floral mandap or wedding arch for their big day, as this definitely adds a wow factor to the decor. This can be followed by an aisle with flowers on both sides, making it exclusive for the bride. 

Fancy a floral backdrop like Kim K. this can be used as a photo wall for your gorgeous wedding day! Flowers can be implemented in so many different aspects of your decor, whether your stage, entrance arches, or enhancing your tablescapes. 

Wedding Cake  

Choosing your wedding cake does not revolve solely around the flavor; however, design and aesthetics also play a significant role! Amidst all the decor and floral aspects, incorporating fresh flowers picked straight from the garden on your wedding cake can add a lot to the overall decor: Roses, Ranunculus, orchids, or even peonies. Whichever flowers you choose to incorporate, they will definitely give a touch of elegance. 

Fresh flowers on wedding confections have been used a lot; however, this trend is undoubtedly coming back. We at Vivaah Celebrations can assist you with designs and even connect you to professionals who’d know the best way to implement these buds in your wedding cake. 

Edible Flowers  


The number of ways you can incorporate flowers at your wedding celebrations is countless. Wow, your guests with cocktails, appetizers, meals, and desserts with gorgeous edible flowers. This is not as widely seen, so it will surely leave an impression and enhance your food aesthetics. Rosemary, Lavender, and many other edible flowers are now available to add a touch of elegance to your food.

Overall, incorporating flowers in a few different aspects of your wedding can surely help tie your decor together. It makes everything match one another, whether your cake, tablescapes, or the wedding aisle, making the event glamorous.

SANGEET EXTRAVAGANZA AT DESTINATION WEDDINGS

In conversation with the top choreographers in the region

The Big Fat Indian Wedding would be incomplete without elaborate dance performances, designer outfits and larger than life celebrations. 

Sangeet Evenings are one of the most sought-after events at a wedding celebration. A lot goes on behind the scenes for months before you witness that picture perfect family performance that presents itself like clockwork. Those impressive dance moves, special effects, flamboyant entries and the entire show production is the genius of the masterminds behind the craft – the Choreographers! These unsung heroes work over weeks for endless hours training family members on their dance steps till they can perfect them and time them correctly. They travel internationally with the wedding groups to slip in that one last practice session before the performers go up on stage. This is their passion towards their skill. 

Being one of the most experienced wedding planners in Dubai, Vivaah Celebrations had a candid conversation with leading choreographers in the region about their craft and the future of their business.

One of the leading choreographers and UAE’s biggest dance You Tuber, Nidhi Kumar (IG: @nidhikumardance) believes the pandemic has led to an evolution in the way the Sangeet performance is choreographed.

“In adversity often lies opportunity. As the world succumbed to a pandemic, the wedding industry also was hit. But despite the hurdles, the industry evolved & that is where the win is! 

Sangeet performances now have become more intimate and digitally friendly. I have choreographed two in the USA where the whole family from across the world came together on zoom and danced! Did we ever imagine that before 2020?! 

Instructors, now have a wider audience to cater to & expand their business. This change is so beautiful. We may have been locked down, but our love for weddings and dance can never be!” 

– Nidhi Kumar

Another renowned choreographer with years of experience in destination weddings, Satyen Babla of DANS (IG: @dans_me) expresses the challenges he faces when working on a high-profile destination wedding.

“High profile weddings are always fun. Having said that, they do come with some challenges. One of the top challenges is availability of the client’s time. Most of our clients are business families or working professionals who usually have formal commitments followed by family time which makes it difficult for them to allocate time for choreography and practice sessions. 

In other cases, most of the performing dancers are in different parts of the world. Hence, a lot needs to be worked on remotely through videos or online sessions. 

Finally, we have seen multiple additions, edits and removals of songs even after the production has been finalized which compromises the flow and continuity of the performance on the days of the events.” 

– Satyen Babla

Known as the maestro of Sangeet performances at Indian, wedding Sumit Khetan (IG: @sumitkhetanent) is a force to reckon with. He spilled the beans on one of the most elaborate Sangeet production and performance he has choreographed under the banner of his company Sumit Khetan Entertainment Co.

“There are many (large projects) to pen down, but in case if I have to choose one, I would highlight a wedding that I recently choreographed in 2020 at Aamby Valley City (Lonavala). The venue was huge, it was called Town Square. We had a larger than life stage measuring 100 meters x 80 meters.

 The elaborate acts included special entries, aerial acts, LED interaction and a whole lot more that took months to put together in a seamless manner. I am glad Sumit Khetan Entertainment Co. got an opportunity to design and direct this wedding and we are proud to exceed the client’s expectations too.”

 – Sumit Khetan

Dubai-bred talent Riya Berry (IG: @riyaberry) is loved by many for her bubbly and chirpy nature that puts all her clients at ease instantly as they feel deeply connected with her as friends. This gives them the comfort of following Riya’s dance choreography steps quite easily. This power packed talent is creating ripples in the world of destination weddings. 

“Typically, choreography should start a month in advance and regular practice sessions should be followed once the songs are finalised. I am aware of clients’ different levels of dancing skills and I guide them accordingly. 

Once I arrive at the wedding venue, I liaise with the light and sound team as well as the performers to make sure we practice 2 hours before the event starts so they can mark their positions on stage and get used to their props as well. I am constantly working with the DJ and light team during the entire performance to make sure everything goes right.

Destination weddings are trickier because the Sangeet practices are usually after a pool party, mehndi or any day event – which makes it harder to gather guests together for stage practice! However, performers and guests usually love the essence of a well-choreographed dance skit and more than happy to take that time to make sure everything goes well.”

Curating Culinary Concepts – Featuring Foodlink, Moshi & Food Inc.

Without a doubt, Food & Beverage plays an important role in any wedding celebration. More so for an Indian wedding, where delectable flavours come together in elaborate settings to elevate the sense and the overall experience for the guests. 

Good food has known to touch a chord with many taking them back to fond memories of their hometown or even their childhood. Food at Destination Indian Weddings has evolved over the years and is a full-grown industry in itself with world class catering companies leading the foray. 

Our Director, Rahul Kumar has led Vivaah Celebrations to be recognized as one of the most renowned and leading wedding planners for destination weddings. With Big Fat Indian Weddings slowly making its comeback after a challenging couple of years, Vivaah Celebrations is always on the forefront to deliver exemplary wedding planning and management services to the top and elite families globally. 

As they say ‘With great power comes great responsibility’; the experienced team at Vivaah Celebrations ties in together all aspects of the weddings and the finer details to provide the clients and their guests with a wholesome memorable wedding experience. This most definitely has key focus on the Food & Beverage offering including the trending Culinary Art to satisfy the aesthetics of how the food is presented and served. 

We spoke to some of the leading experts in the field of Food & Beverage who have catered for large events and they proudly have in their list of clients, some of the top renowned business families, industrialists and celebrities.

One of the leading food specialists in India and the Middle East – Mr. Sanjay Vazirani of Foodlink (www.foodlink.in) shared his views about how food has evolved at weddings celebrations.

“We have been blessed to be the caterer of choice for esteemed clients such as Deepika Padukone & Ranveer Singh, Ambani family, Bachchan family, Shilpa Shetty et al. I can’t divulge specific details due to our non-disclosure agreements, but it gives me great satisfaction to deliver memorable gourmet experiences for them. The strong influence of culture, tradition and hence regional delicacies and traditional sweets continue to remain the same and so does the flair and eye for excellence that Foodlink promises, while the rest including the overall offering and approach keeps evolving based on trends.

For instance, In the current time, modern diets need to be considered while designing the menu. Single-serve packages/Mono Portions are a trend to stay. Plant-based eating is on the rise. With COVID being a major factor in play, there is a move towards the main essence which is QUALITY FOOD – with less extravagance. You can say Minimalism & “Less is More” is the new mantra. A robust and updated ‘Food Safety Management System’ and appointment of trained hygiene officers are a must-have. Interactive Live Cooking Stations are the need of the hour and are fast developing to add more dimensions to them to please all senses.

What’s constant is that we continuously strive to reinvent ourselves according to the existing trends and guest preferences. While we have specialty chefs in our chain of restaurants and banquets, if a guest requests a cuisine or dish that is not in our domain, we are sent on special training programs to develop the required skills. We also collaborate with other Chefs in different parts of the globe and learn from their inputs and experience.”

Known as the guru of fusion and quirky, Rahul Sajnani of MOSHI (www.moshiuae.com) has entered the market in a much unique manner by fusing traditional flavours with local delicacies. We asked him What inspired him and how his out of the box offering has been received by young couples as part of their wedding events menu. 

“I always noticed there was a gap in the market and people wouldn’t eat/try new items easily. For example – Sushi. The mindset of it being served with raw ingredients kept people away from it. We changed that perspective by adding unique fillings / flavours into it. This made our brand stand out and differentiate from the rest.  

We then started tweaking other dishes combining it with a couple of cuisines which people avoid eating or trying. Moreover, we wanted to bring some fun element into the food. Sushi gave us a boost and made us want to explore more cuisines and since then we have been known for our unique concoctions. 

Young couples and teenagers are the easiest way through which our products are marketed as they are the ones looking for different concepts and are ready to try newer dishes. It has been a great hit amongst the younger generation and eventually they would bring their loved ones and families to try our unique flavours. 

Once we became part of their daily cravings, we had an easier way in to becoming a part of their occasions such as weddings, birthday, anniversaries etc.”

Creating a distinguished experience for discerning clients is Food Inc’s (www.mmmbox.ae) priority and forte. Led by renowned Food & Beverage expert, Varun Tuli, the catering experience that their clients enjoy is unparalleled. We asked Varun what are the demands and expectations of clients from Food and Beverage at a wedding?

“All of them demand a truly unique experience and we leave no stone unturned to exceed their expectations. 

We craft a bespoke menu in collaboration with our clients. Our expansive repertoire helps us ensure that each celebration catered by Food Inc is a distinctive experience with an abundance of cuisines. Be it for intimate gatherings or celebrations that bring thousands of people together, no two of our menus are alike. 

From starter islands, dessert bars, conveyor belts, flying buffet service, sit-down dinners to flying in specialised international chefs, we are always willing to assimilate a multitude of innovative concepts to make an indelible mark on our client’s guests. We conceptualise various themed live counters, fun and unique stations, pop-up restaurants and menus that are one of a kind.

We design a culinary carnival with extraordinary experiences that ensure the celebration is extravagant and entertaining. Even while crafting thousands of dishes in a single day, we ensure that each one is a gastronomic affair for our clients and their guests. It has been thrilling to create a Thali that encompasses an entire country with chaat from Benaras, curries & bread from Punjab, Awadh and Kerala, rice delicacies from Hyderabad that ends with delectable desserts from Bengal or curate a Dastarkhwan under the starlight sky set against the dunes of Jaisalmer. Over the past few years, we have created avocado bars, tiffin stations for South Indian cuisine, teppanyaki pop-ups, detox bars, stations by renowned regional delicacy vendors, pizza acrobat counters, edible helium balloon stations and pop-up restaurants like Indian Accent, Yum Yum Cha and tbsp with a curated set menu. 

We hope that our passion for bringing food and people together shines through in our scrumptious food, spectacular food display and splendid service.”
