According to Wedding Planner, Namrata Kohli, a wedding symbolizes the unification of the body, mind and soul. A beautiful wedding ceremony is not only cherished by the bride, groom and their families, but also carves an eternal memory in the minds of those who attended it and we believe in creating unforgettable moments. Myshaadi spoke to her about different aspects of wedding planning and here is what she had to say...

What are the latest trends in Summer Wedding Decor and what are the best wedding venue options (banquets/hotels/halls) in Delhi?

Summer is the season of florals, pastels, water and light flowing fabrics, so summer wedding décor should be a mix of all these but there can always be a little bling added by crystals and mirrors.

The latest colors trending this season are corals, light pinks, lemon & mint green. So mix & match these colors. Chinese lanterns, umbrellas and flowers are a perfect way to add color to your décor while having some fun.

- Canapes Curtains tied with Flowers

If you are having an outdoor function, go for vibrant & colourful canopes with lanterns. Bright red / fuschia arrangements are great for indoor functions. 'Sunflowers' are the perfect summer flowers.

A trend that is catching up now is the use of 'Ice sculptures and Ice Furniture'. An Ice Bar that will serve guests drinks in ice glasses is an ideal way to beat the heat. Scented candles can be used on tables to add freshness.

The Best Venue options:

The best venue options for summers are indoors. But if you would like to have an outdoor function try having it around a pool or an igloo (AC) tent, however these can work out to be quite expensive.

What are the best places for wedding shopping in Delhi? How do you help a bride plan her trousseau?

The best places for shopping in Delhi are:

Aza, Ogaan & Frontier Raas for Indian Wear
Emporio and Gallery on MG for high fashion brands
Shapur Jaat has all upcoming designers offering great styles at reasonable prices.
If you can bargain and manage to find your way around then one can find some great buys at Chandni Chowk.
For home furnishings Shades of India offers a good range.

To help a bride plan her trousseau it is very important to understand her and her sense of style along with where she is going to be settled after marriage. If a bride is moving abroad, I would suggest limiting the number of Indian clothes (especially heavilly embellished sarees) she takes with her.

However, every bridal trousseau should consist of a few essentials that are listed below:

A beautiful traditional Indian saree - can be a kanjeevram, jamdani, paithni, patola or any other.
Timeless & evergreen jewellery along with a few contemporary pieces of jewellery as well.
An elegant and flattering long gown / dress in burgundy, aubergine, pewter, black or ivory.
Stilettos in basic colous such as black, silver, gold and nude.
Some nice scarves and shawls to experiment with.
A nice assortment of day and evening bags (they should be in different colors & sizes).
Well fitted golden blouse with versatile appeal.
Airy light sangeet lehenga.
Feminine lingerie and nightwear.

Can you provide us with some ideas on Indoor Flower Decor?

Flower arrangements in deep reds, fuchsias & orange mixed with twigs and greens can liven up any hall. Choose a colour to contrast with the tablecloth and napkins. One can also use flower chandeliers with candles to create a dramatic look. Flower curtains in contrasting colours to the fabric can change the entire look of an indoor canapé. Roses, lilies, orchids, sunflowers and genda can be used.
