Sustainable Wedding Planning

The latest trends can be broadly divided into two. One one hand we have ideas and themes which take big, fat Indian weddings to the next level. On the other hand, many couples are choosing to downsize and go minimal. One of the major trends here is sustainable wedding planning.

Some of the ways by which couples are achieving this are by using sustainable decor, by using materials such as blackboards and jute fabrics. Another way is to repurpose existing articles such as wine bottles, blackboards or even coconut husks.

Another point where you can innovate is at return favours. Many couples have taken to giving seedlings or potted plants as a return favour. Another option is consumables such as coffee, tea, honey or other consumables.

Small Weddings

Many couples have really brought down the size of weddings, not due to budget constraints but because they wanted to have an intimate and meaningful ceremony with only their innermost circle present. It may be difficult to get your family’s approval on this one. In that case, you can always host a bigger reception for extended family and friends. remember that only the number of guests reduce here, not the fun, beauty and happiness that a wedding entails. 

Customised Invitation Illustrations

One of the best ways to introduce customisation to your weddings is through your invitations. You can get hand-drawn or digitally designed quirky illustrations of you and your partner. They will get a laugh out of your friends, look super cute and also make for a great keepsake. You can additionally incorporate your wedding theme and destination through these invites.
