"When the couple completely trust the people that are working on their wedding they always get the best results. Amrita and Bhisham were one couple who had complete faith in everyone they had chosen for their wedding. They knew the photographer is the best person to decide which shots to take, they knew that the decorators will suggest the best theme and they trusted us as planners for everything. In the end we got beautiful results which is for you to see," remarked Neha Wadhawan, Co-founder, The Doli Diary.

Talking about the Youngsters Party, the bride remarked, “My husband and I were very clear we wanted a themed youngsters party for our friends. We chose ‘The Great Gatsby,’ a charming 1920’s, old school and classy theme. We wanted to transport our friends to the 1920's using props such as hats, feather hair bands and walking sticks.”
The Pheras featured a traditional-themed decor. The Mandap had 4 box pillars which were covered with greens. Orange marigold flower clusters with green leaves were created on these pillars. The mandap ceiling was covered with marigold flowers. The centre part of the ceiling had hangings done on it. Marigold balls, tassels and bells were hung. For the entrance, a box pillar structure was created. The entire pillar was covered with greens. Orange marigold flower clusters with green leaves were placed on the pillars along with flower tassels on the arch. Three lotus urlis were placed on either side of the entrance.
The reception Décor had a vintage theme which consisted of an off white trellis frame which was beautifully done up with flowers, green ferns and flower vases were placed on either side of the frame. A flower arch was created and the sides had urns and lamp posts with flowers on either side (pink and white). A bird cage and garden lamps were placed on either side.
A "LOVE" Photo Booth area was set up for guests to click selfies and group photos. It was a 12 ft LOVE photo booth in the lawn area.
