Few weeks have gone by since tanaRi events brought together some amazing talents from the South asian wedding industry to the Tie the Knot Bazaar, which took place at Soigne K in November. Since then we have received many requests to share more details of the event, so here we go…
Tie the Knot Bazaar incorporated many new ideas for brides-to-be and here is a slight refresher for you…
* Décor: Less is more is such a beautiful philosophy.
Sometimes weddings with minimal and simple décor can be the most beautiful weddings. Taking that inspiration, tanaRi events’s table was decorated with a simple tall centerpiece that complimented tanaRi events’ colors. As part of décor, we also included turquoise cake pops.
Using food and drinks as part of your décor is a great idea that you can use. Keep the colors & flavors synchronized with your overall theme and you’ve got a winner!
*Desserts: Tiered-cakes are classic and will always ‘in’. However, these days focus has shifted a bit from elaborate cakes to dessert bars with a mélange of bite-sized delectables, including cupcakes or cake pops. Bittersweet NYC provided us with perfectly sized and succulent cake pops in our colors, which were much appreciated by the guests as well.
*Entertainment: What will people remember most about your wedding? Along with food, entertainment is one of the most important at a wedding reception. You could choose a DJ/Band for music or more exotic choices of entertainment.
At Tie the Knot Bazaar, we had middle eastern dancers, who performed a variety of dance and introduced a range of props, even swords were at play :), which was extremely entertaining. The best part of the dance, as noted by the guests, was that they danced to music from different parts of the world, including Bollywood.
*Photobooth: Even though photo booths are not new, Tie the Knot Bazaar took a very unique take on this idea. We customized it for a South Asian wedding theme. The booth was lined with saris and the many accessories included a pagdi (a Indian headpiece worn by men), saris, dupattas (silk stoles), hand made mustaches, bindis, eye glasses and the like. This is definitely a place to be very creative. Our lovely photographer, KSD Weddings captured many candid shots of the guests.
In addition to this the vendors brought together great tips and tricks for today’s bride. We are glad to have presented this opportunity for you and truly honored that you enjoyed it!
