MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR MONSOON WEDDING

Published

on

After the sweltering hot and sunny days, the monsoon season brings in the much needed wet and cool climate. If you are getting married in this romantic weather, make the most of it by following the simple tips by wedding curators Aaradhana & Prateek Kashyap of Made in Heaven.

Venue: Check the weather forecast before finalising the date and make sure the venue is monsoon proof. Opt for an indoor venue. Choose one that has glass walls, transparent ceilings or even windows to enjoy the lovely weather. Have humidifiers at the venue to balance the temperature. Also, an indoor venue will keep all the decorations safe. Make sure the venue is well ventilated and has a constant power supply as there are sudden electrical breakdowns due to bad weather.

Going in for an outdoor venue will be cumbersome as you will need to go in for waterproofing and don’t forget to have a bug repellent plan in place as the monsoon invites lots of bugs. We have a lot of umbrellas and sheds in the venue. Always have a backup plan in case you want to go in for an outdoor wedding. If you really want to go for an outdoor venue, look for a convertible venue if you really want to go for an outdoor venue, or opt for a venue that has both indoor and outdoor facilities so that if the rain comes, the entire wedding can happen inside, but make sure the indoor is big enough to accommodate all the guests. 

Make sure the venue has valet service so that the guests can easily leave their vehicles and move in if it’s raining. You should have escorts and ushers, especially if there’s a distance between the parking area and the venue. You should have a hot beverage station to serve hot beverages and snacks the moment guests arrive. Plan out flexible times for your festivities as the monsoon invites a lot of traffic jams.

Décor: A monsoon wedding calls for a vibrant and colourful décor. Avoid real flowers as they get spoilt easily in rain, and they might attract small insects and crawlies. You can use origami, sheer curtains, glassware, and bright floral print fabrics and can add umbrellas, boats, origami, danglers, and fairy lights for the decor. If you choose an outdoor venue, avoid using props as they might fall in case it rains or the winds are heavy. Floral umbrellas, light colours, and the vibgyor theme are popular décor themes in the monsoon.

Food: Have plenty of live stations for hot snacks and beverages. You can have South Indian dishes, Chinese and grilled sections. Avoid raw salads and any cold beverages, as they can make you sick easily. Make sure the food is fresh and prepared hygienically, as rain brings in a lot of bugs and food allergies. Sweet dishes like garam jalebis and gulab jamuns are a must-have in your menu. Avoid dishes that have leafy veggies as ingredients like palak paneer, green chicken, hara bhara kebabs, etc., as leafy veggies are high in infections due to the conditions, they are grown in. Avoid risky sea foods like shrimp and an overdose of non-vegetarian preparations, as meat too leads to a lot of stomach infections this season. Plan a pre-wedding rain dance party and enjoy the lovely monsoon weather. A rain dance theme bachelorette party or even a pool-side party. You can even plan your haldi ceremony followed by a rain dance party. This can happen if you plan a destination wedding or book a hotel.

Wedding invites and favours: Opt for the monsoon theme for designing your invites, e.g., a couple dancing in the rain. Accessorise the wedding favours with umbrellas, cute raincoats, and other rain-wear gear like flip flops.

Photography & Videography: How about a pre-wedding shoot in the lovely monsoon weather. The romantic weather can definitely bring in the love in the air and complement the Pre-wedding shoots. 

Wedding Outfits: Choose lighter outfits, and not too long hemlines and trails. It’s advisable to keep a spare.

Published

Punjab Police on Wednesday arrested Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Faridkot Lakhvir Singh for accepting Rs 10 lakhs as a bribe from a drug supplier for not nominating him in the FIR registered under NDPS Act in Tarn Taran, said the Director-General of Police (DGP) Punjab Gaurav Yadav.

The development came after the Tarn Taran district police had arrested a drug supplier identified as Pishora Singh from a petrol pump near Patti Morh after recovering 250 grams of opium and Rs 1 lakh of drug money from his possession on Sunday. Accused Pishora, a resident of village Model Boparai in Tarn Taran, was wanted in the FIR dated 30 June 2022, in which his aide Surjit Singh of village Mari Megha in Tarn Taran was arrested with 900grams of opium.

DGP Gaurav Yadav said that during the investigation by the Tarn Taran Police, Surjit revealed that he had purchased opium from Pishora, who is the main drug supplier.

“When Police started conducting raids to arrest him, Pishora tried to bribe Patti CIA in-charge by offering Rs 7-8 lakhs through ASI Rashpal Singh (posted as MHC CIA Patti), in lieu of not arresting and nominating him in this case, but the in-charge refused to accept the bribe,” he said while adding that the Police teams continued their efforts to arrest Pishora.

Later, Pishora met Rashpal Singh’s brother Hira Singh through his acquaintance Nishan Singh of village Sito in Tarn Taran, and together they approached DSP Lakhvir, who also happened to be the cousin of Hira Singh, where the DSP negotiated the settlement at Rs 10 lakhs to help the drug supplier, said the DGP, adding that the accused DSP instructed Hira to keep the amount with him.

On the disclosure of Pishora Singh, the Police have also recovered Rs 9.97 lakhs from the house of Hira Singh.

Reiterating the commitment of the Punjab government to make Punjab a corruption-free state, DGP Gaurav Yadav unequivocally said that any Police officer/official found indulged in corruption will not be spared.  

SSP Tarn Taran Ranjit Singh Dhillon said that the Police have also nominated ASI Rashpal Singh, Nishan Singh and Hira Singh in the FIR and raids are being conducted to nab them.
