DLF Emporio and the Wedding Design Company have collaborated to create the first of it’s kind weddings-related event called Wedding Atelier & it is currently taking place at DLF Emporio, Vasant Kunj. The dates are 24th, 25th and 26th August & tomorrow is the last date. Their introductory page online says, “From bespoke wedding trousseau to exquisite jewellery, conceptualized décor to complete wedding planning services, the event provides you with a complete solution to all your wedding needs.”

The Oberoi Hotel had a space where they were showcasing their wedding expertise in wedding cakes and gifts. One of the cute ideas was mini-wedding-cakes that can be sent along with invites to the guests.

Wonderful to see them on the social media space.
By now you should be able to tell that I have a crush on Rohit Bal *grin*

I did expect the event to be more grandiose and luxurious but my excitement and delight to see such an event overshadowed whatever else I might have had a critique for. The wedding space in India, while large and cash-rich, is in desperate need of being organized and such events are a great way to create a standard and a benchmark. The event also saw the launch of a magazine called Timeless Weddings, which is a good initiative again but did not come across as polished – maybe because it is the first edition and is meant to garner feedback and be improved upon.
The other exciting thing that was launched at the Wedding Atelier is India’s first ever Wedding & Gifts Registry. I hope this will inform more people about the possibilities of what gifts couples actually want as wedding presents.
