Wedding Party Themes

While most people think that hosting a theme wedding is only for the rich and famous, the fact is that theme weddings are more about creativity, out-of-the-box ideas and the zest to do something different from the usual. The concept of a theme wedding is catching up in India in a big way. Here are some ideas you may want to consider when planning a theme wedding.

 

The Regal Way – “Live Life King Size” —  Medieval, Roman and Victorian-style weddings are some of the very popular themes in the West. In India, the Mughal and Rajput cultures have caught the imagination of generations since the days of yore. In fact, traditionally, royal/regal styled settings are some of the most time-tested themes.

By the Beach – If you are living in a coastal city/town or are in close proximity to the coastline, think no further! Beach theme would be the most ideal wedding idea. Getting married by the sea can be a dream come true for most couples. And here’s your chance to turn this dream into reality. In India, Goa and Kerala are the most popular destinations for beach weddings.

Colour Splash – Designing your wedding with color themes is perhaps the most feasible and economical ways of giving a personal touch to your wedding. “We had planned a wedding with a theme synonymous to the spring season by fusing two pastel colours. We chose orange and green to emulate the colour of mehndi. Wet mehndi exudes a lovely green hue and orange kicks in whence dry. To further accentuate this theme we used cloth bags dyed in natural ink to wrap hand-picked gifts, served food on traditional carts and used warm orange lights to match the décor. Marigold was the decorative flower used for its auspicious and traditional characteristics and baskets were used as center pieces in lieu of fish bowls and were filled evenly by this lovely flower and roses by the heaps,” recollects Mukta.

Regional flavours – India is a land of diverse cultures, languages, traditions and geographical characteristics. If you wanna lend a regional flavour to your wedding, the choices are wide ranging. And with inter-regional marriages on the rise in India, you can creatively cement the bonding between two families belonging to two different cultures. For instance, if it’s a Bengali- Gujarati wedding, you can keep the dinner theme Bengali with a sit down dining, classical music in background, and formal dress code. For entertainment, add an element of Gujarati folk with traditional Garba dancers.

Indian Market Theme – If you are a little adventurous then you may try out an Indian market theme. An improvised version of a typical bazaar with loads of entertainment and food stalls, the theme would be perfect for those who belong to the clan of gypsy at heart. This mish-mash of a wedding is sure to deliver a lot of exciting moments not only for guests but also for the hosts.

Still confused, all you need is to mingle your food, entertainment and props so that your guests can enjoy food and entertainment at the same time. It would be a good idea let your guests a little exploring opportunity around the mini market that you have set up for them.

Pool Theme – A poolside ceremony and reception does not call for the formality of a seated reception. You may opt for a variety of furniture styles to create a unique and inviting gathering spot for guests. Try high-top cocktail tables with bar stools near the bar for an impact. Rather than going in for couches or anything plush the best furniture for such a wedding would be an ample use of wrought-iron sofas with bright cushions or adirondack chairs to create seating areas for guests. If you’re having an afternoon wedding, place umbrellas on the pool deck to offer guests some shade.

Boat Party Theme – The graceful, private ambience of the wedding ceremony on Yacht offers one of its kind opportunity for individuals that desire to stay away from having their celebration in the public eye of a restaurant, golf course or hotel.

Designing you wedding with eye catching decors and settings makes for great photo opportunities. So go ahead and plan an out-of-the-box theme!

BIRTHDAY PARTIES -Themes – tons of ideas, less preparation

Traditionally Indian birthdays were celebrated with a ‘tikka’ and a small pooja. Gradually however, this practice has evolved, into a trend towards elaborate celebrations with theme parties and entertainers. As a result, more and more parents are getting stressed out trying to create the perfect birthday event.

Tips to remember while hosting a successful party

•Big guest lists are more for the satisfaction of the parents than the child. Upto the age of 3-4 years children prefer to spend time with people they are familiar with. The thumb rule remains “the child’s age plus one”.

•Plan the party around the interests  of the birthday child and the guests. What games, food, celebrations will they enjoy?

•Keep individual personalities in mind while preparing for a party – are there shy kids who will need coaxing and hyperactive kids who will need extra supervision? Plan for them in advance

•For the toddler years, instead of calling entertainers, try one special activity or craft of interest to children of that age or put in a few simple enjoyable games.

•For older children you can organize a treasure hunt or any such participative activity. The children will not only have fun but they will also learn a lot by interacting with each other.

•If there is a mix of age groups, make sure the younger ones get their share of party games and goodies.

•Keep the party for the children. Accompanying adults can eat the same food. At best keep one wholesome item in the menu for the parents or the maids.

•While planning the menu keep in mind what the children would like rather than going in for something fancy.

•Prepare the child for what to expect. The child will be more comfortable knowing the order in which the party is going to be held -first the play, then the cake and lastly the presents.

•As far as possible, include the child in the party plans by letting her choose the balloons, the colour of the icing, etc.

•If you keep celebrations small in the early years, she will not have super expectations in the later years. That way a special theme party or elaborate celebrations once in a while will have more meaning to the child.

•It’s not necessary to have a party every year. Make the day special in other ways. Take her for a special treat, fuss over her and spoil her rotten for that one day.

Tips for holding a relaxed birthday party-

•Send out invitations well in time.

•Follow up with a phone call.

•Set a time and keep it short. For toddlers 1 ½ – 2 hours is enough otherwise they may end up getting tired and cranky.

•Plan for more activities than you think you will need.

•If you’re planned an outdoor party, have an alternative location ready in case it rains.

•Ensure you’ve got enough adult help for supervision purposes.

•Expect that a child or two will cry and don’t panic or believe that your party is a failure.

•Make sure the birthday child is having fun. This is one day where you can spend a little more time looking out for your own child as compared to the guests.

•Child proof your home in case the party is at home, keeping in mind that your home hazards may not be familiar to guests.

•Put away your child’s favourite toys or books – you don’t want her to burst in to tears because someone else is playing with them.

•Be careful with balloons.Pieces of broken or collapsed balloons represent a serious choking hazard. Try and ensure that you use polyester film balloons rather than rubber or latex balloons.
– If you have rubber or latex balloons keep an extra careful watch on the children and pick up all pieces of deflated or broken balloons.

•Supervise children around a cake with lit candles.

•Check for food and pet allergies amongst the guests before the party.

The First Birthday

Many parents caught up in the excitement of planning a party for baby’s first birthday, seem to lose track of the fact that a baby is still a baby and the gala event they are so painstakingly planning is rarely suitable for the guest of honour.

1. Keep the invites light-few and familiar faces

2. Keep the décor light- too many balloons , steamers, masks, etc may scare the baby

3. Plan food that small children will like not what would look nice. Include universal favourites like chips, popcorns, jelly not canapés, etc

4. Magicians, clowns, or any other such entertainment might frighten your baby or a playmate. One year olds are very sensitive and unpredictable- what one likes the other may not like

5. If you keep out some toys for the children to play with ensure that there enough of the same items to avoid competition

6. Time it right – baby should be well rested and recently fed.

7. Don’t take on the entire burden of supervising the party onto yourself. Get help from friends and family. You need to pay more attention on the birthday boy. One year olds especially as this is one of there first big interaction with a lot of children.

8. Keep the party brief – an hour and a half at the most.
