EventzInspired planned and executed a big fat Indian wedding at multi-venues in Kolkata. They executed the Mehendi Ceremony at Hindustan Club Banquet Hall, Mayraa Ceremony at JW Marriott Hotel, Sangeet Ceremony at ITC Royal Bengal, Haldi Ceremony at JW Marriott Hotel and Wedding Ceremony at PC Chandra Gardens, Kolkata for the couple.
The Big Fat Indian Wedding had 7 events, 7 completely unique themes, entertainment options to fit each theme in sync, hospitality for over 400 in-house resident guests and up-to 3,000 on-sight guests, location-to-location seamless commute and short deadlines to be met. The ceremonies started with home rituals, with less than 24 hour turn-around time to fit our selected floral themes, followed by a complete transformation of a community hall to fit a grand gold-Mehendi ceremony that was adorned by a classic folk entertainment.
Mehendi, followed by a modern twist to a traditional Mayraa ceremony the day after (24-hour turn-around time) with hues of blue and pink contrasts, where the guests serenaded to live acoustic music with memorable, and kitsch give-aways. The Adda Room, bustling as the hotspot for the wedding, EventzInspired replicated the street vendors of Kolkata in terms of décor and catering were chats, tid-bits, finger foods, and a small entertainment set-up was placed for our guests to unwind throughout the day for all days till the wedding.
The last day of the #BigFatJagAriWedding started with a Bengali-Haldat (fairly unusual for a traditional Jain-wedding), EventzInspired proposed their over-seas guests would get a taste of traditional Bengali culture, without losing the Jain roots of the family. The Bengali-haldat, a culturally-loaded and memorable success for all involved included banana leaves, conk shells, red-gold décor combination, Alta, traditional Bengali florals in abundance – and to top it off, along with our trusted vendor/ choreographer, EventzInspired put together a bridal entry that puts previous bridal entries to shame – six traditionally dressed professional Bengali dancers, clothed in traditional Bengali attire – engaging in flower-showers, classical Bengali folk dance, and a “dhanuchi” performance to showcase the bride-to-be.
Later that evening, for the main-wedding EventzInspired had a big task ahead for them: 3000PAX audience, and a Varmaala ceremony proposed by them as the main highlight entertainment for the night. EventzInspired had planned, brainstormed, and referenced several Varmaala ceremonies prior to this, but this would be nothing like anything they have done before. The 24,000 sqft. venue had a total of 3 stages, each with a different look of its own, endless catering display, and the main Varmaala stage which was to be the highlight of the evening.
The groom entered a secured passageway keeping the 3,000 guests as spectators with a grand parade of male performers leading the way, replicating the grand entrance of Kings in the ancient “Rajwaada” times, with 8-foot drums, 20 cold pyros, symbols, and custom made hand-pulled gold chariot designed especially for the groom’s entrance. On the stage to greet him were trained professional traditional Indian dancers, guiding the groom to the top-tier of the stage where the Varmaala exchange would happen, 40ft above ground-level, visible to the overflowing audience below.
The bride entered in a masked, embellished and ornamented hand-pulled doli, with fireworks and flower-showers leading her way to the stage. The Varmaala exchange received high-praise from spectators, clients, and the bride-and-groom themselves. As the sole entertainment for the night, it was key to ensure the exchange went off spectacularly and left an impact for all involved.
EventzInspired executed the wedding at muti-venues in Kolkata including JW Marriott Hotel, ITC Royal Bengal, and PC Chandra Gardens, Kolkata.
