We’ve got a few tips on hosting a destination wedding in Goa during the monsoons.


MAKE IT COLOURFUL

Take a tip from nature; bring out the colours. You can choose a dominant tone and a variety of supplementary colours, or go with themed decor. If you’ve opted for an indoor-outdoor venue, such as an ancestral home or a fort in Goa, there may be a chance your décor could get wet. So check with your wedding planner in Goa for options that are both weatherproof and sustainable. Gift colourful umbrellas as a party accessory that doubles up as a wedding giveaway.

ROMANTIC RAINY PHOTOSHOOT

Take advantage of the romance in the rains and book a photoshoot for spectacular results. There’s drama in the looming clouds and a special intimacy of being surrounded by raindrops.

KEEP IT FRESH

Fruit is colourful and revitalising. Use it for décor with a variety of local seasonal options, and as refreshment with exciting twists to good old fruit juice. Stalls of adhrakwali ganna, the all-time favourite ganga-jamuna and popular pineapple make exciting pit stops. Bar services for weddings in Goa will help you add some alcohol to the mix for a spirited evening.

HOT SNACK STALL

The monsoon is the perfect time for snacking. Pander to your guests’ whims with a chai and chaat stall. Steaming cups of masala tea with chaat or filter kaapi with idli and vadas can bring back wonderful memories for your guests and make excellent new ones for you. If you’d prefer to go another way, try hot chocolate and warm brownies, momos, wholesome soups, mac and cheese bowls, or mini pot pies. Check with caterers like Malibu Resto-bar for exciting options.

RAIN DANCE

Embrace the monsoons with a rain dance that invites all and sundry to let their hair down. Get the family to join in a wet and wild bharaat or crank up the fun with a sangeet that’s open to the elements.

BE COMFORTABLE

There will be wetness, humidity and possibly cloudy skies, so deal with it. Opt for lightweight, heat-friendly material so you don’t feel hot and sticky. Avoid wearing stilettos so they don’t get wet or stuck in mud. And with high chances of you getting wet, go for waterproof make-up and an updo for your hair, so even if you do go dancing in the rain, you won’t look washed out. Check in with good hair and make up artists like Zeetra for the ultimate monsoon wedding look.
