Wedding High Street will make sure your ‘D day’ is nothing but glamorous
Indian weddings are great fun no doubt. But planning for one can be an ordeal. And for brides and grooms to-be, it can be extra troublesome as they shuttle from luxury boutiques to the narrow lanes of Avenue Road, looking for everything — from a bindi to a tuxedo.
Wedding Vows hopes to reduce that stress with their event, The Wedding High Street, which will bring together enough and more retailers under one roof, all of who cater to your wedding needs. The company, which also owns a lifestyle magazine, conducts expos across the country that primarily focus on bridging the gap between those hosting or involved in a wedding and the retailers. “As much as people love to shop for high-end luxury brands for their wedding, they also love their street shopping. We wanted to bring the two on one platform where people can have best of both worlds in one place. The Wedding High Street not only helps those gearing up for a wedding in the family, but also the local artisans who specifically cater to special occasions,” explains Divya Ramamurthy, chief marketing officer of Wedding Vows.
All in one
Some of the luxury designers and brands showcasing wedding specific ensembles and jewellery include Ritu Kumar, Krishniah Chetty & Sons, Nikhaar Jewels, and Clutches by Enso. Meanwhile, local artisans will showcase handcrafted items that make for great trousseau such as brooches, silk woven dupattas, glass bangles and so on.
The two-day event will also feature a digital filmmaking workshop by Vishal Punjabi, from The Wedding Filmer, and makeover sessions for brides.
Rs.2,000 upwards. January 8 and 9. 11 am to 10 pm. At ITC Gardenia. Details: 9840573935
