Minimal Engagement Decor
For Engagement the couple chooses to take an existing tree as a key decor element without damaging it and adorned with minimal flowers and greens which seems perfect for nature lovers as Dheeraj and Deepika. The couple also looked stunning with their gorgeous outfits.
The Mehendi decor was simple and elegant which is designed by hand with pink and green color hues and the bride Deepika shined in her beautiful pink saree.
This wedding was all about love and togetherness towards the family and nature in which friends and family planned to create this adorable wedding. The Mantap was simple, traditional yet contemporary with natural shade and seating. The various folk art performances like Chenda Madale, Garudi Gombe was the highlight of this wedding.
The photo booth was quirky and charming that incorporated the love of the couple towards Raja Ravi Varma Paintings.
Deepika & Dheeraj celebrated their reception night with vintage lights and drama which included folk arts Yakshagana and Pilli Vesha to entertain their guests.
Because our soul is vintage…
We want to tell you how we planned an Eco-conscious wedding!
No plastic bottles, no tissue papers, and no plastic or Styrofoam cutlery anywhere around.
Instead, we had handmade cotton cloth fabric napkins set aside, water served in crystal ware, and dispensers.
Wedding favors were in the form of zardosi clutches during the Mehendi, organic coffee from Coorg and tulsi/basil plants in cute jute bags from an NGO we support that helps destitute youth, and portable stainless steel cutlery in pouches that we made at home.
Wedding invites mostly shared as e-invites , but very few made for the elders were made with seed paper and made by hand ourselves.
A venue that’s not only beautiful but was also one with the owners practice Eco-consciousness. With a venue that was nestled around trees that provide shade and a natural amphitheater seating, helped cut down the amount of decor and furniture required which helps aid transportation efforts and the outdoor space with trees helps cut down on the need for additional fans and air conditioning.
Promoting local art forms and staying true to our roots will go a long way in preserving our heritage.
For the past two years, we have always painstakingly practiced segregation of used flowers and greens and donate the flowers to an NGO we work with, that provides vocational training to mentally challenged children in helping them make organic colors. Trust us when we say it, flowers used at a 3-4 hour-long event is still beautifully fresh.
Intimate small weddings are the future and will be amazing!
Also having a no gifts policy could help. Support a cause by directing the cash gifts to them.
