The Marwar Mega Wedding Show in Mumbai was certainly a hit with grooms-and-brides-to-be as well as for their families what with the plethora of stalls that displayed wedding finery, mehendi artists, jewellery and gift packaging! Further, newly wed couples also had an amazing opportunity to stock up on wonderful products for their new home at the many home stores at this show. And, if anyone happened to be looking out for that big fat Indian wedding gift, they’d surely find it at this very exhibition. Here are some excellent stores that were carefully handpicked by us out of the many home stores at the Marwar mega Wedding Show.
This stall certainly caught our eye as you can see from the photograph above. Cushions of all colors, designs and fabrics took center stage at the Spazio stall. Themed cushions that ranged from dull gold Buddhas to funky prints right up to football clubs like Manchester United stood out bright and clear. Ruchit Kapoor, Director of Sales at Spazio mentioned that the company is well known for its customizable cushions that could well be a part of the wedding trousseau.
Divyavastra is basically a store that offers intricately carved and crafted idols of deities, temple decoration material and other devotional embellishments used in religious activities. However, the main attraction of Divyavastra’s offerings lies in its handcrafted fabric that is made out of Gold and Silver. In fact, Divyavastra has patented this fabric, which is created from 14k, 18k and 22k gold and sterling silver. The Radha-Krishna statuettes definitely make for wonderful wedding gifts for a newly wed Indian couple.
Everybody’s favorite store for handmade, natural body products also had a cute store that was almost always crowded with intrigued onlookers and shoppers. Interestingly, the word Nyassa has its origins in a Sanskrit word that means healing through touch and by chanting. Yummy products that smelt as good as they looked were displayed in an enchanting way. Along with soaps, Nyassa also does room fresheners, lip balms, bath salts and creams. Their hampers are definitely worth a look and make for wonderful gifts.
Rosenthal meets Versace!
Further down the line, we visited Rosenthal, famous for its contemporary table pieces including dinner sets. One section of the stall really caught our fancy, and that was Rosenthal’s Versace line of home pieces. Delicately engraved dinnerware with the ubiquitous Versace logo were on display. We think one of these Rosenthal-Versace dinner sets could be a unique yet elegant wedding gift.
Right next to Rosenthal was Lladro’s well set up stall. Lladro, a brand synonymous with artistic porcelain creations is well known globally. At this show too they made their mark with Indian themed creations like a well-crafted Radha-Krishna pair of statues. We really loved their bride and groom porcelain figures too!
