It is a surreal feeling as we say good bye to 2015 and a feeling of excitement as we gear up for the New Year. This last year, it was wonderful to connect with our readers and clients through our ever expanding marriage cards collection ranging from , interfaith ones, other invites and these blogs. Our new entrants were received warmly by one and all and the older ones held their ground in people’s heart. As we get ready to step into the next year, it is all but natural to feel the nostalgia.
We began talking about our cards through first few write ups and then migrated to the symbolisms of a wedding. Right from Maang tika to mehendi, we covered every possible thing. By the time we were done with the auspicious symbols, it was high time to give our readers glimpses of wedding ceremonies all across India. And what fun we had finding out about unique and rare experiences of weddings that spanned across East, West, North and Eastern parts of this great country. We were literally panting by the time we got this one done!Marriage cards

We brought wedding trends from all over the world but relevant to an Indian wedding and its traditions. Our ideas on décor, theme, gifts, dressing up and all things “wedding” were shared whole heartedly with our readers and we must say that we were delighted with the response we got for all the hard work!

Outdoors look like the flavour of 2016 and so be prepared to have a celebration amidst sprawling gardens, woods, winery, botanical gardens and such other awesome locations!Online Indian Wedding Cards
The Mughal and Moroccan styled lamps and lighting would also continue to show up in weddings with floor and low seating. However, use of colour and palette would be far from gaudy. The ambience even with such traditional theme would be modern owing to shades of pastels with some vibrance added here and there! Some weddings might take on a rustic mood with wooden benches and wild flowers and shrub decoration all around the venue and on tables- another reason why outdoors are going to be hot in 2016. The French touch to our Indian food would be more evident than it ever has been before. We expect a lot of “Served at table” dining with small portions presented in OMG! way. So overall it is rule of soft shades except where it is pop culture wedding with delicate portions served right at the table.
We at KOC strive to match up with all ruling trends so if you want your own set of customised, get in touch with us. If there are pieces in our collection that catch your fancy then order for and we will serve it right at your doorstep- a la French!
With all the “feel good” wedding air that surrounded us in the past year and more of it expected in 2016, we wish all our readers and clients a great 2016 ahead!
At KOC we are as much in love with as the wedding themes. Yesterday someone shared their experience of a wedding party that had lot of glassware. And no it was not limited to crockery but extended to décor. It seems the wedding looked spectacular with glass lamps and centrepieces radiating a lot of sparkle but an hour into the wedding, many of the pieces had been smashed by children who attended the do. We can’t even begin to imagine how the host would have felt finding the dream wedding décor turn into a total disaster!
Don’t get us wrong, we are in love with glassware. It is classy, elegant and absolutely gorgeous but there are ways to integrate it in your wedding that are safe and childproof. First of all, try and create a decoration that is propped up high like lamps suspended from ceiling. If at all some pieces need to be on the ground, make sure that they are attached to something unbreakable and solid. For example- a glass encasing propped up on a heavy wooden base that would not topple on a nudge. If glass moulds are part of your centrepieces then place them in the middle, amongst things like flower bouquet and other knick knacks. This will keep them safe and out of reach from younger guests. You can also have tiny glass pieces adorning the walls with flower decoration.Hindu marriage Invitation card
If your budget allows, then try to get your hands on glassware that is encased within intricate metal frames. Such glass lamps and other decorative pieces do not break easily since they havemetal bracket to hold them in case of a fall. Avoid placing breakable centrepieces around the venue on the ground, they are easy to topple and trust us you cannot even trust adults with them! Another nice way to get the glass creations to do up your wedding is to have only one corner of the entire wedding done up in magnificent glass. This can be the stage or photo booth though we vote for stage because stage is a place where children cannot hover for a long time because of the inflow of guests thereon.
Now that we are done giving tips on incorporating glass in your wedding décor let us talk about our collection. We create our cards keeping our clients in view vis-à-vis the latest trends. Right from our to rest of the creations, we have a piece for everyone. So step into our online portal and be surprised!

Other than clothing, you can buy thank-you gifts for your guests online. The best part about online shopping is that it gives you great ideas if you don’t have any!

Deserts of Arabia are birthplace to many fantasies and stories. The beautiful expanse of golden sand dunes inspires romance even though everyone knows of its harshness. But there is more to Arabic theme than the desert and sands and it is quite easy to pull it off as well! So what comes to mind when you think of Middle East, well the carpets! In the Middle East lush carpets create the seating space with richly decorated cushions in velvet and gold embroidery. You can do away with chairs; just have some foam mattress covered with a nice and luxurious fabric on the carpet. A low centre table within the seating arrangement with hookah and a Moroccan lamps perched on it would complete the look.Muslim wedding invitation
Arabs also share special love for shamianas and breezy tents. You can also erect tents for every seating arrangement. If you are getting married in the winter chill, your guests would be ever thankful to you. Though you can create an Arabic theme anywhere, an outdoor venue would give it the right look and ambience. You can also have temporary palms planted around the venue for an added effect. Light some candles, incense sticks and shower some itr (traditional perfume) to transport your guests to the sands of Middle East. Ones done, you will get a wonderfully regal ambience oozing with opulence and luxury in every way.

Every wedding needs detailed planning right from the appropriate to venue and all the way to the wedding feast. We at KOC would like to add one more “to-do” in this long list- wedding favour. Popularly called return gifts, wedding favours are in trend and whether it is simple or a big budget wedding, every family is trying to accommodate this idea in the big scheme of things.
While we take care of your let us give you simple ideas that you can use for your wedding favours. Consider the sweet tooth of your guests and see them off with a box of chocolates, muffins andcupcakes with the couple’s name. In a winter wedding you can gift shawls and stoles at the venue itself. Your guests would keep themselves warm during the wedding and depart with the lush wool shawls on their shoulders. Spices are loved in all Indian households. You can gift a combo pack to your guests in attractive bottles and packing.
If the wedding is near New Year then calendars with pictures of pre-wedding shoot as theme can make for a very thoughtful gift. However, keep in mind that this kind of a gift is ideal only for close relatives and friends. If you are having a destination wedding, then gift something that is unique to the culture of that place. For example, if Kerala is your pick for destination, then gifting aromatic oils would make a lot of sense. The best point about this idea is cost factor. For an exotic gift, you would be spending fraction of cost because you are sourcing them from the place they come from. Gifting small plants like that of bamboo, candles etched with couple’s name, planters etc are also exciting gift options.
