The A to Z of Intimate Weddings
Khush Wedding|Issue 26
For couples who need a jump-start on their todo list
Times are tough at the moment, but don’t let that knock the sparkle off your wedding planning. Whether you’ve already booked your wedding date or working out how to plan celebrations at home, we are here to help. Make the most of the extra spare time many of us find ourselves with, and let’s get planning!

ARRANGING CHAIRS

It’s important to safely navigate guests, before, during, and after a wedding. As a result, weddings today look and feel a whole lot different than before the pandemic. With the health of all guests an utmost priority, arrange chairs at a two-meter distance apart. Make sure that seats and stools are comfortable, especially for older guests. Most brides and grooms are preferring to walk down the aisle alone, and stay seated with immediate family, but far apart from the rest of the guests.

CAKE

You can still have your dream cutting ceremony. Why not leave the main cake left untouched to be cut and boxed individually, and have a smaller one to share between you and your partner.

BARFI

No Indian wedding is complete without boxes of mouth-watering mithai, such as ladoo, besan, and gulab jamun. See if your sweet provider can individually wrap barfi, or create smaller boxes for your celebration. It’s best to hand out closed boxes to guests at the end of the ceremony for hygiene and safety.

ENGAGEMENT RINGS

Handle all rings with care! Remember to prioritise handwashing before trying on engagement rings or visiting jewelers. We are in love with these brightly colored diamonds by Fabergé – fun, bright and cheerful!

FOOD AND DRINK

There are a large number of excellent food & drink vans that practice social distancing and are trained to serve your guests in a safe and secure manner. The Artisan Strawberry Van serves the finest, sumptuous strawberries, fresh smoothies, and delicious cocktails. • www.TheArtisanStrawberryVan.co.uk

GRAZING TABLES

Grazing tables have taken the wedding industry by storm. We believe these are well-suited to your small social bubble. Cheese & Chai bring a creative twist to the catering scene with luxury styled platters, boxes, and lavish grazing tables. They have a mouth-watering menu which includes Samosa Chaat Cups, Baba Bhanooj, Sheesh Kebabs, to name a few. For sweet treats, they offer Kheer, Falooda, Turkish Delight, and Jalebi. It’ safe to say, your guests won’t leave your wedding hungry… • www.CheeseAndChai.co.uk

HENNA

No South Asian bride feels complete without a Mehndi ceremony, and this is normally a private affair with close friends and family. Manraj Henna creates delicate and intricate designs tailored to you. • www.ManrajHenna.com

INVITES

During this time, it’s understandably tricky to visit relatives' houses with your wedding day card invitation. Anita Dongre leads the new way forward with her e-invite Indian designs. The designer has gone digital, creating beautiful invites for eco-friendly brides who want to do their bit for the environment.
