“Always remember, your wedding entrance is the first moment of truth. The first look should be able to encapsulate your entire wedding decor theme. We like to use more pastel shades, sheer fabrics and go for a more delicate look for summer weddings. Whereas, for winter weddings we like to use deeper colours and richer fabrics to add more warmth to the wedding,” shares Aakriti Anand, Founder of Silhouette’s Events.
Nidhi Arora and Rashi Pruthi from RashiNidhi Events share some trade secrets, “For summer weddings, we are very careful about the kind of flowers we use on the gate – the sun and heat makes the natural flowers wilt really fast. To avoid such a disaster, we take fresh flowers that don’t wilt fast with a combination of other props, which are beautiful and practical. Fortunately, in winters, we can go big on floral gates as we get a lot of floral variety in winters. But always remember, daytime in winters can get gloomy, so even though pastels are everyone’s favourites, we add a bright colour to keep things happy and festive.”
