Generally, Indian weddings are pompous and colourful. But what will set aside your wedding from the others is when it is flashier and glossier. Be prepared to go overboard with the idea right from the start because such weddings are extravagant! And why not? It is a once in a lifetime affair. Incorporate golden drapes and ribbons, pastel hued canopies, lots of seasonal and exotic flowers to make the venue lavish.

A Bolly-Inspired Menu Card
