The much talked about 3-day wedding extravaganza of Yash and Kripa Mehta was attended by over 400 guests including the gorgeous Alia Bhatt!
The guest welcome started right at the arrivals area of the airport, where their bags were tagged with their personalized baggage tags and transported to their respective hotels. After check-in, they were welcomed in the room with the most delightful hamper (which also reflected the spirit of Jodhpur & Rajasthan). There were over 400 guests in 3 hotels around Jodhpur. The wedding venues where spread all across Jodhpur(Indana Palace & Jodhpur Polo Grounds)
The Pre-wedding Cocktail in Mumbai showcased modern decor and a lot of flowers. Therefore, a combination of blue and grey with roses pattern was chosen to give its invite a modern touch.
While the wedding in Jodhpur was a royal affair. Therefore Itcha Talreja Designs used burgundy, bottle green, deep violet and royal blue colours for the wedding invite. They also incorporated Indian elements like the bells, lanterns, royally decked up elephants, horses, and peacocks!
The events started with a “Phoolon ki holi” themed haldi for the couple followed by a Mehendi, Polo Match, Sangeet and the Wedding.
Food being a critical part of the Royalty , was imbibed in the events of the 3 days from start to finish, whether that involved sourcing local delicacies from the small towns of Gujarat and Rajasthan or Chaats and specialties from the bylanes of the cities of India.
