Monsoon-proof your wedding
Who doesn’t love the rains? Monsoons are pretty snuggle-friendly and romantic as a season. Planning a wedding in this season however, is a different ball game altogether. Monsoon weddings are fun without a doubt but a round of heavy rains on your special day can wash out all the zeal and gusto. Fret not. Here’s how you can tackle the tricky showers on your wedding day.
While tying the knot under the heavenly blue sky sounds magical, the bliss will prove to be short-lived as soon as rain starts cascading down during the wedding rites. It’s best to go for an indoor venue during the monsoons. It will save you the constant trepidation about the changing weather. Make sure that you waterproof all the outdoor spaces, if there are any, at the venue. And oh, it is always a good idea to pick a venue that offers a good amount of parking space. Your guests will thank you for this, trust us.
Gloomy days during this season are inevitable. Add a splash of vibrant energy to the venue by incorporating bright colours into the décor. We’re talking about cheerful pinks, sunny yellows and bright blues. You can even think of a theme encompassing the pastel palette.
The bridal trousseau
Go for light and breathable fabrics like crepe silk, tussar silk, georgette, and chiffon. The best part about these fabrics is that they dry up in no time and are wrinkle resistant. Resist the temptation to go for heavy, pile fabrics like velvet or suede as they have a greater capacity to retain moisture.
Heavy makeup and humid air don’t work well together, at all. Stick to light makeup instead. And don’t forget, good quality waterproof make up is your best friend for this season. Keep it soft and natural!
Let’s just admit it. Humid air equals to disastrous, frizzy hair. While letting your beautiful tresses down for your D-Day sounds appealing, it’s best to go with intricate hairstyles to allow you to pin your hair up.
Ladies, make sure that you get the food section waterproofed at all costs. There is very little that you will able to do on your wedding day to save the food from getting wasted by the onslaught of rains. Take the necessary precautions beforehand. Try and blend the season into the wedding menu. Replace the traditional refreshments with comforting hot beverages.
Go ahead and make the most of this beautiful season! A very happy monsoon wedding to you!
