The wedding of Meetha and Prashant, a lovely Indian couple, was no short of "A Dreamy Affair". The entire event took 9 months to plan and execute. It took months of detailed planning and conceptualizing by Vivaah Celebrations under the leadership of Rahul Kumar.
The destination wedding took place at Habtoor Palace Dubai; the extravaganza that lasted 3 days was filled with lavish celebrations, kicking off with a fairytale event! Every element and aspect of this wedding celebration was significant and personalized to the bride and groom’s likes and preferences.
The first event was the Puja and Behrana where there was spiritual singing by traditional folk artists to commence the auspicious occasion.
The following morning, guests went to Firefly Terrace for a colorful, classy, and chic Mehendi Lunch. The immersive tunnel with hanging dream catchers and other traditional ornaments kicked off the guest experience. Before entering the colorful venue, guests passed through this tunnel on their way to the Indian Kitsch Art Photobooth. Interactive artists, such as the bangle maker with cart and setup, the peanut maker, the paan waala and many others added to the overall experience. The mixologists also added to the color with their vibrant cocktails and coolers. Throughout the day, there was a lot of dancing, while DJ Nitesh was spinning at the decks.
The evening went on to an elevated Bollywood Oscars-themed extravaganza. This evening featured illuminated posters of the couple, as well as, a red carpet media wall with MC Abhijeet interviewing the guests. Wedding guests were amazed by the large trophy sculptures that were displayed throughout the pre-function area.
Once guests entered the V Hotel’s amazing room, they were astounded by the arrangement, which included a beautiful fairy light dance floor and a lit-up stage with lightbulbs around it. Elegant centerpieces with trophies, clapboards, movie reels, and more portray the theme of Bollywood and the Oscars were also part of this elegant setup. Finally, at the end of the ballroom, a giant immersive gold bar counter with sparkles, shimmer, and #PrashuKuchMeethaHojaye, the hashtag of the gorgeous couple was incorporated. The outstanding skilled mixologists had a lot of molecular activity going on at the bar and kept the guests entertained with their unique creations.
The evening began with the couple’s romantic reveal from the balcony while exchanging rings. The magnificent sight appeared to be straight out of a Bollywood movie. The couple then came down and joined the audience for the high-energy sangeet performances choreographed by DANS.
The wedding day began with Pujas and ceremonies, followed by the Groom’s Procession along the Habtoor Palace’s pathway in his vintage vehicle. The Royal Brass Band led the procession along the route as he made his entrance like a Maharaja.
The Sabyasachi bride entered the lovely site with her flower chaadar, which was adorned with red flowers. As the bride stepped in dressed as a Maharani, it was yet another scenario straight out of a Bollywood film.
The Grand Reception was the most anticipated, magical, and dreamy affair. For this Ethereal affair, Cinderella was used as inspiration. Meetha, was dazzling in her opulent gleaming gown. The groom found her shoe and slipped it on, knowing she was the one, and they wowed the guests with their white horse and carriage as they made their grand entry. For all of the guests, this was a surreal sight to see.
As soon as Meetha and Prashant arrived at the venue, they cut the wedding cake and popped the bottle, pouring champagne on the champagne tower with low fog, sparks, and other spectacular effects, followed by their first dance. As their first dance came closer to the end, they invited the remaining couples to join them on the dance floor to recreate the Cinderella scene in the romantic song.
While the night progressed into party mode, Walter Scalzone, a renowned percussionist, gave an unforgettable experience for the guests by performing a champagne performance with water drums.
