5 Things To Keep In Mind While Planning A Monsoon Wedding

Follow these expert tips to make your monsoon wedding a memorable affair


We all enjoy the monsoon season and the occasional cool downpour, but when you're planning a monsoon wedding, it seems unlucky to have it rain on your big day. Not a nice sight for the soon-to-wed couple or the guests to see all the flowers and food wilting in the face of Mother Nature!

Do not worry; we have a guide to an easy monsoon wedding. So go ahead and read everything there is to know about it:

Apparels to wear

The monsoon season is a free pass to humidity and moisture. Pick breathable materials such as cotton, cotton-silk blends, chanderi, georgette, pure chiffon, or organza (very trendy). You won't have to put much effort into getting the comfort you want. Resham or chikankari embroidery, beads, pearls, and stones provide excellent choices for embroideries because they are monsoon-friendly and don't easily deteriorate.

Convertible venue for the wedding events

This way, whether it rains or not on your special day, you won't have to worry. The location has features that make switching from an outside environment to an inside setting simple. For the first few minutes, things could get frantic, but ultimately things calm down.

Footwear to wear for your monsoon wedding

The terrain will be soggy. Puddles could be present. Maybe you shouldn't go about in your high heels. Purchase yourself some sandals or low-heeled juttis, or you might wear a decorated sports shoe with your wedding gown.

Monsoon-Friendly menu


Food is the heart of Indian weddings. It will not only fit with your wedding's theme, but it will also reduce the likelihood that guests may get sick during your wedding. Choose recipes that feature seasonal, organically grown foods. Make sure the food area is always covered.

No matter if your wedding festivities take place under cover or in the open, do this. The likelihood that you'll be able to replace the food in a reasonable amount of time if it spoils due to the rain is very low. Therefore, it's best to use caution.

Makeup and hairstyle

Use waterproof makeup. A light outfit will allow your skin to breathe in the already humid climate. You might choose to play it down or use bold lips and eyes. But keep in mind to use a setting spray to secure the makeup.

Create a bun to keep your hair off of your face and reduce perspiration. You can also select lightweight hair accessories to keep your hair from weighing you down.
