R2S Events handled the decor for this cocktail party held in Zirakpur, Punjab recently. The cocktail and subsequently the wedding were both held at the same venue which was a resort still under construction.
A contemporary 'Bling It On' theme was used by the agency. Dark fabrics dominated with black fabric covering the walls along with black carpeting. Blues and purples were thrown in to add a stark contrast at the venue.
Punjabi performer Jassi Gill and his band set the stage on fire along with a host of international acts adding to the glitz including belly dancers, carnival theme dancers etc.
The walk upto the venue with neon lights lining the path gave guests a sneak preview into what was in store. The partial ceiling, at a height of almost 40 feet, strategically masked the unfinished portions of the under construction resort.
The low key lighting put the focus on the island LED bar and the beautiful stage with an LED Backdrop and the dance floor in front of it.
Neon paintings adorned the walls of the venue and were glowing due to the diffused ambient lighting. Neon cocktail tables and in-lit furniture were also used to accentuate the theme.
The structures, colours and music definitely brought about a psychdelic feel. Lounges were created in tune with the theme of the event with crystal chandeliers, sequined cushions, backlit walls etc. Round sofas with crystal beads hanging provided some eclectic seating options. A separate lounge was created for sheesha lovers.
A local caterer, Ambrosia dished out a lavish spread of appetizers and a buffet dinner.
The major challenge was to create a space in the middle of an under construction building and syncing the venue decor with the architecture of the unfinished building. Keeping in mind that the function hosted no less than 800 people, planning out the space was of essence.
