The last two- three wedding seasons in Manipur were quite a riot in terms of fashion trends, makeup, decor, photography and everything else! We loved it all but there are certain wedding trends which we wouldn’t mind if it would repeat this season and the next too!
With the Inga Weddings Season on, we listed a few Manipuri wedding trends which we would love to see this season and the season after!
The lei nachom (floral fascinators worn on the hair) was a huge favourite among the wedding goers in the last few seasons and we can’t seem to get over it so quickly!
Indigenous Wedding Decor Elements
Vijita’s ingenious idea of incorporating the phuk (water reed mat) and using the water Lily (tharo amubi) in her Wedding Decoration became the talk of the town. Since then we are looking out for more such ingenuity in design and style!
Styling the Tradition
Be it styling the traditional jewellery or making a statement with your intricately hand-woven puanchen! We love a twist in the tale!
Creative Wedding Invitations
Wedding cards set the tone of your wedding but it need not always be expensive and glittery. We can’t stop gushing about these minimal yet fancy cards from Horizon!
Dessert Bars and Cakes
Fancy a dessert? We do! We love to indulge ourselves every now and then. And this particular dessert was a dream come true. Do check out our list of Cakers, bakers and Pastry Chefs who can make your dream come true!
Destination weddings are huge trend in the wedding industry these days but we are not only for the extravagance! One particular wedding had all the elements of romance, close knit friends witnessing love and way within the budget! The Sendra Resort by Classic, Gaby’s Cafe at Tengnoupal and some of the best hotels in Ukhrul could be your destination!
Trendy Wedding Guests/Bridesmaids
Weddings are incomplete without trendy bridesmaids and fun-loving guests. They make the party alive! And boy, how much we adore them!
Fancy Wedding Parties
One of the recent trends we love is these Fancy Wedding Parties! They make this beautiful milestone in life worth a fancy! Like we said, now weddings are a celebration and not just an Event that needs to be done away with.
Gowns make the wedding for some of us! And we somewhat belong to that category of people 😉!
Creative/Artistic Wedding Photography
If we had to choose between portraiture and candid, it’s hands down candid/ creative photography for us. We love a photographers creative interpretation of our lifetime event!
Favour Box with a Traditional Touch
Move away from organza pouches and plastic boxes and embrace these traditional bamboo/ water reed products! We loved these favour ideas with a traditional touch and won’t mind seeing them over and over again. It’s makes a beautiful keepsakes. Don’t you think so?
Why should the young and unattached have all the fun when our mommys paved the way for us! These slay moms definitely proved they are here to rule!
Cotton Wangkhei Phee
Nostalgia and Romance in one inaphi! The cotton wangkheiphee returned to the wedding scene with a storm! Thanks to Koijam Mantri for this One!
We have to acknowledge, we don’t like the caky potloi makeup! And there is no hard core rule that the Bride has to look white! Thank God for our new and vibrant MUAs!
DIY Wedding Decor
We loved and heart Sophina’s engagement decor! The Reason: She painstakingly concieved and designed the entire set up. Checkout Epic Films’ Gallery here!
Thank God there’s a designated place where we can pose as much as we like! We love our wedding decorators for making this a must. Bring it on guys!
Is there anything we missed out on! Tell us what you think? We would love to hear from you.
