So you are having a monsoon wedding and you don’t know what to do apart from praying for clear weather and keeping your fingers crossed! We think a monsoon wedding is the perfect opportunity to move away from the traditional and sometimes predictable Indian wedding celebrations and do something different and enjoyable. Don’t let the soggy weather dampen your enthusiasm of having the perfect and extraordinary wedding day. Here is how you can use the monsoon to your advantage and have a fun filled and memorable special day.
Your wedding stationery can be designed keeping in mind the weather. This is also the best way to inform your guests to dress casually and come prepared to enjoy the rains.
In case of traditional cakes, you can go for cakes with a crystal or pearl finish with a beautiful themed topper. You can add umbrellas, boots, raindrops, clouds and any other rain elements to make this more interesting.
Umbrellas and rain boots are images you easily call to mind when you think about the rains. Using these things in your décor will not only be unique and refreshing but will also bring in splashes of color and the element of fun to your décor. Incorporating rain boots and umbrellas into your table décor and centre arrangements is an interesting idea.
Brightly colored boots or umbrellas can also be used to line walkways leading to your main venue or hung randomly inside your venue.
Similar to white paper lanterns, white umbrellas with lights strung across the venue also looks very dramatic and pretty. You can also use umbrellas in pretty prints or solid bold colors for an equally stunning effect. This will look best in an outdoor venue or indoor areas with high ceilings.
Using crystals in your décor can give you a dramatic raindrop effect, which will compliment your theme!
Surprise your bridal party with some personalized boots or umbrellas with names etched into the handle. Wedding themed rain wear is not uncommon and can produce some very interesting photographs as well for your pre wedding shoot as well as your wedding day.
And last, but not the least, here are some monsoon themed favors for your guests. We would love to hear your ideas!
