 Interesting article on Wedding and Trends

The great Indian wedding tamasha - by Jasmeen Dugal

Unorganised for decades, the wedding industry is finally getting its act together — a trend that is reflected in the plethora of wedding exhibitions like ‘Celebrating Vivaha’, ‘Bride and Groom’, and ‘Bridal Asia’. “The wedding business is a lucrative business, especially in India where marriages are the most awaited event in anyone's life. In India, people don’t think twice before spending on marriages. There is a lot of money involved in a wedding; right from the shagun to the reception, a wedding is a big celebration where families spend huge amounts of money on the decor, apparels and accessories. The wedding industry in India is worth Rs 50 billion, and is currently growing at a rate of 25–30 per cent,” says Divya Gurwara, CEO, Bridal Asia

Bridal Asia 2005 will showcase 85 participants and will encompass categories like bridal apparel, accessories (jewellery, bags and watches) and assortments like chocolates, and will showcase the collections of renowned Pakistani designers. In addition, this year’s show also brings in Patchi chocolates from Lebanon and jewellery from Thailand. “Bridal Asia started off with 40 participants in 1999, had 75 participants in 2002 and this year the number has risen to 85, with an increase in the number of participants from Pakistan and Bangladesh,” says Gurware

It’s not just wedding exhibitions but there has been a spurt of wedding planners too. And now a wedding mall. Says Kolkata-based wedding planner Damini Kapur, “Many working, urban couples – who previously thought they would be able to organise their own weddings – are now realising that they simply do not have the time or proficiency to do so. This is especially so as the big day approaches, when such details as the sending out invitations, floral decorations, food, etc all demand attention at once. That is why a wedding planner is gaining importance.”

Real estate developer Omaxe is setting up India’s first wedding mall in Delhi. Spread over 1,75,000 sq ft, the estimated Rs 70-crore mall will be a one-stop shop catering to all wedding-related needs from wedding planners, honeymoon tour operators, marriage bureaus, trousseau and footwear designers, jewellery brands, footwear, apparel, F&B, entertainment provisions, henna, floral arrangement, card designers to beauty and slimming centres. The niche mall aims to take away the hassles of frequent market visits by providing complimentary products under one roof.

The ripple effect of the wedding industry boom is been felt elsewhere too. Couples are living out incredible fantasies when it comes to their wedding venues. Setting the precedent are celebrity weddings like that of actor Raveena Tandon who made headlines with a pricey nuptial in Udaipur. Her wedding was held at Jag Mandir Palace which stands in the centre of Pichola Lake, Udaipur. “I love Udaipur, with its beautiful lakes and palaces. The place is so charming that I could not think of any other place as my marriage venue,” says the actress. Actor-turned-director Pooja Bhatt wed at a Shiva temple in Goa, and frolicked on the beaches thereafter; in keeping with her casual image, she wore a white linen skirt with a blue top and hubby Munna wore a simple churidar-kurta.

However, if wedding planners are to be believed, an exotic wedding locale is no longer an A-list fixation; it’s fast becoming a middle-class reality. “More and more people from the upper middle class bracket are approaching us to organise destination weddings; the only difference is that the middle class set are selective on services as they have budget constraints, whereas the A-list go all the way,” confirms Sunny Singh, director, Wedding Blitz, a Mumbai-based wedding solutions company.

“We have organised destination weddings in Mussoorie, Jaipur and Udaipur and have recently got a requirement for Dubai. Contrary to the misconception, it is not just affluent people from the metros who approach us for destination weddings; a lot of our clients are from smaller towns like Ludhiana,” says Vikaas Gutgutia, managing director of FnP Events.



Have money, will spend

With the trend toward more elaborate weddings these days, the Indian wedding industry is on a high. Wedding planners, hired for Rs 35,000, transformed 22-year-old Nisha Sarin’s sangeet venue (a farmhouse in Delhi) into a Rajasthani village – for a staggering price of Rs 35 lakh. The music, especially composed for the occasion, entertained the guests while folk artists performed traditional dances. Keeping the theme in view, the guests had been requested to dress in Rajasthani gear, and the bride-to-be looked radiant in a designer lehenga and coordinated jewellery custom-made for the sangeet – for a sum of Rs 7 lakh.

“The themes may span from being purely floral for low budgets to havelis, Mughal palaces and even drapes with ethnic fabric like zardosi, brocade or jamawar for relaxed budgets. Our complete services range from Rs 20 lakh upwards,” says Gutgutia.

There are cheaper options too. Dia Nag, director of a small-scale event organiser, provides a complete wedding package for a quarter of the market rate. The package includes wedding cards, decorations, catering and a rented room at the local community centre. And instead of lobsters you’re likely to have chicken satay for dinner. “The profit may not be big, but the volume is good,” she says.

Saying it with flowers


Fashion house Valaya recently joined hands with FnP to launch their new label of luxury flowers, Valaya FnP Fleur at their flagship store in Delhi. “We have tied up with designer JJ Valaya to provide luxury flowers. As a special service, Valaya FnP Fleur will regularly fly in leading international floral designers to design and showcase commissioned lines of floral art. We have received a tremendous response and most orders are custom-made for theme weddings,” says Gutgutia. “In October, we are launching a wedding company restricted to the elite set in the Capital.”

Even though the wedding business fails to throw up clear figures, it is an industry on an upswing. Only a few years ago, wedding planners were unheard of in India, but today the percentage of couples using planners indicates that that trend has changed. “Everyone makes money. It goes right down to the grassroot level. The artisans make money; the services industry makes money; and the client saves money. People feel wedding planners are costly but, in fact, approaching us makes financial sense. Since we give the vendors regular business, they give us better prices, so in spite of our commission, the client ends up paying less,” explains wedding planner Gaurav Kapur.
