We at KOC work similar magic on your , all you have to do is let your imagination run wild and we will oblige to your every request. Coming back to the interesting wedding themes, this time we decided to touch upon Arabic theme.
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.
You can begin the magical journey of your wedding from your . We can give it perfect twists, turns, fonts and aromas to go with the Arabic theme of your wedding. Let your be one of its kind and create a sense of curiosity around your grand wedding with our cards!
Unique Wedding Favours Idea For Indian Wedding
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.

The Fad Of Full Finger Rings

Well KOC can help you easing out this process by getting the entire shop at your fingertips through its online portal. You can simply browse through hundreds of designs under various categories and look for that suit your taste. Just like shopping for cards, deciding on the right bridal jewellery can also be a daunting task. Some bridal fashions are stunning, some amusing and others plain confusing. One such fashion accessory is full finger rings.
Full finger rings extend across the entire length of ring finger and look quite stunning. They come in brilliant designs and make for an ideal piece of jewellery for your wedding as well as engagement. The only problem with them really is that they cannot be worn on a daily basis. Finger rings are just too ornamental to go with your everyday attire. You can liken it to heavy bridal make up which is meant for special occasions only. It is usually this one reason that most of the brides keep away from this gorgeous piece of jewellery. Indian wedding invitation
However, we just realised that most of the bridal jewellery is a one-time affair only. At most you might wear it to a close relatives’ wedding again but otherwise it just sits in the bank locker. So why not buy these full finger rings that are a little more versatile than rest of the wedding jewellery? Besides wearing unique pieces and looking one of a kind is prerogative of every bride under the sun. If you are somebody who is still not convinced than let us put forth another reason. You do get these rings in delicate spiral designs that are very contemporary and chic. All you have to do is tell your jeweller to create a customised piece for you.

India boasts of having a historical lineage any other country would be envious of! Evidence of our rich culture and history lies strewn across the length and breadth of our great country in form of countless monuments. One photographer shared that these monuments would make for a great backdrop to a wedding photo shoot and we loved the idea! Here we are going to give you a low down on how to get that perfect shoot right before the wedding amidst these beauties!Hindu wedding cards
Though your chosen theme is historical monuments but you need to get your outfits right. There are three ways to go about it- either go completely traditional in a lehenga or heavy saree, or create a contrast with hip and happening modern ensemble. The third way is simply to amalgamate both styles. Do an Anarkali and Salim styled photo shoot in front of a monument from Mughal era to create the perfect air and ambience. It is important to pre-decide and reach the destination well before time. After all getting ready and changing costumes is a time consuming job.

As we all know, some of these places do not even allow camera to be taken inside. Besides your elaborate costumes are definitely going to attract the security teams of such places. Whichever monument you choose, make sure it has some gardens, water body and similar views for great photo shoot and variety. You may also need special pass for your vehicle to enter these monuments.

Temple Jewellery Transcending Beyond Tamil Brides
Tamilnadu is the southern- most state of India and it comes with its own spirit and vibrant splash of colours. Weddings here have a touch of elegance and beauty of fairy tales. This is reflected well in our KOC . Chennai is the capital of this state and usually a preferred destination for Tamil weddings. In this bustling metropolitan city, traditions are rooted really deep. This is evident in the way people here dress up, talk and jewellery they wear!
The wedding jewellery in this state is particularly impressive and stands out. Motifs of gods and deities give a signature look to the jewellery pieces and thus the entire range is rightly termed as “Temple jewellery”. Depiction of Goddess lakshmi, Lord Krishna and typical south Indian temple architecture are very popular as jewellery designs. Particularly necklaces, waist band and braid jewellery especially carries these designs that adds a richness to the bride’s exquisite look.
This traditional jewellery is currently undergoing evolution to suit the modern sensibilities of today’s bride. The neckpieces are being made more intricate but denser and narrower. Chunky jewellery is giving way to more elegant and less flashy one bringing this style into vogue. Many high profile and well-known jewellery brands in India have taken notice of temple style jewellery and therefore fuelled the curiosity around it further. What more, this jewellery is transforming bride fashion in some North Indian weddings too. The south Indian themed wedding or functions have seen huge demand for this jewellery which is now becoming more wearable.

The Grand Naming Ceremony
What’s in the name? A lot, if you go by Hindu traditions concerning naming ceremony of a new born baby. The grandeur of this ceremony starts with dispatch of to all near and dear ones of the family. The planning in this event is quite elaborate and it also provides a great opportunity for everyone in the family to get together and celebrate. Hindu naming ceremony is popularly called namkaran. Throughout India, this ceremony is carried out with small differences depending on the region and state.
Naming ceremony is conducted on the 12th or 21st day from the date of birth. A priest usually presides over the rituals and after consulting the dates he gives an auspicious alphabet/s from which the name should start. In some communities, the name from the said alphabet is called “gupt naam” meaning that it is hidden and the child is never addressed socially by that name. Name just serves as an end to the ceremony in this case. The ceremony begins by invoking and worshipping fire god popularly known as havan. This opportunity is also taken to draw out the horoscope of the new born child.
Again as per the custom prevalent, the actual naming is done either by father, mother, father’s sister or mother’s sister by placing the baby in the person’s lap. Then the name is whispered in the ears of the baby. These customs and traditions are now largely diluted with the name being decided by parents beforehand only. For the sake of ceremony, the name iscommunicated to the concerned person who in turns whispers the name in the baby’s ears. Thereafter, an elaborate feast usually comprising of vegetarian delicacies is served to the guests and family. Baby and mother, both are bestowed upon with a lot of gifts on this occasion.
These small ceremonies bring out the fervour of celebration amongst Indian families. We at KOC support this spirit with our . We have cards for all occasions- big or small. Right from wedding, engagement to , our collection boasts of having a card for every occasion under the sun!
