When I was a boy, it always feels awesome when I heard that there was going to be a wedding at home. It felt like a week was going to go great with all fun and entertainment and no one was going to say for homework. Otherwise, mom always used to tell when we returned from school that do your homework first then go for play. But during the time of weddings, it was no one who said for homework. Wedding seasons always used to be fun when any wedding at home or when we got invited to attend any other wedding of someone else.
At that time weddings and this time's, there is a huge difference between the concepts these days. In those times weddings all family members used to do all wedding plannings and organizing. A wedding at that time used to be entirely a family affair but these days it has changed.
These days a wedding is vendors' affair though a family too but involvement is less, not like earlier. Nowadays it has become a trend and requirement also to hire wedding vendors for planning a wedding, whether for finding a location, catering, decoration, and other works also. These days people are too busy so they don't have time to do all wedding planning, hence vendors are there.
Besides all this, in the middle of the story, if you are searching for a wedding venue, there are top wedding venues in Goa are available that you can book if you are thinking about doing your wedding in the state. If you don't know from where you can hire all the wedding vendors, don't worry. Shaadidukaan is one of the trusted online wedding markets in India where you can find almost all vendors.
So I was telling how used to be weddings, and with time how they are changing. Nowadays it is of many types. If you are not getting what I want to say, then, here is a glance on today's wedding concepts.
Fun & Entertaining: today a coupe just does not want to do their wedding. They want to do or make their wedding a fun and entertaining affair, ever unforgettable. It is like giving guests a memorable experience, whether it is in decoration, food, entertainment or any other thing. In earlier times it was not the priority.
Wedding themes: in today's time when you go into any wedding, you would notice a theme on which the whole wedding is based. If you are wondering what is theme? A theme is a wedding theme that is based on various concepts. It could be anything and according to that whole decoration is done. Wedding themes are like beach, vintage, eco-friendly, travel, classic old-time, and various others. In our parents' time it was not of that headache, just a simple wedding.
Cuisine: these days weddings are food fairs where you can eat and taste various types of dishes. It is of multiple cuisines, and just depends on a couple how they want to, but it is sure that in whichever wedding you go today, you find multiple options of dishes. Cuisine is given uttermost importance. In earlier times it was just some selected dishes found in every wedding.
Vermala Ceremony Theme: you must have witnessed a vermala ceremony where vermalas, garlands are made to wear to bride and groom by each other. In our parents' times, it was just used to be simple. They simply put to each other. But these days there are themes too in this and couples are going for it.
Not Week-Long Affair: today's weddings are not a week-long affair as earlier weddings used to be. Today's ones are just two and three days long. And you can also see the assimilation of other communities' rituals and customs in weddings. In current times it is like whatever good customs and rituals it is, they are being adopted.
So this is all about today's weddings, where themes and concepts rule and reign, and you can see how they are different than earlier weddings where importance was not on entertainment and fun while on performing rituals, customs and traditions. But these days everything has changed and is changing. Though nowadays, how weddings are done is not a wrong idea while time's demand. And in the end everything has to change according to time. There are always flaws and advantages.
