If you plan for an interior, intimate setting, opt for similar decor which is soft on the eyes and adds to the minimal vibe.

Cut Out The Clutter

Ahead of your D-day, ask yourself a few questions. How do you want your wedding day to look like? Do you really need all those leafy runners across the tables or the big flower arrangement at the entrance or an oversized cake? If the answer is no, ditch all the extras right away. To meet the minimal aesthetic, it is crucial you cut out the clutter and stick to details that are meaningful to you and your partner. This will also help you cut down on your wedding cost. 

Have The Menu Under Check

Just like all the small details of their D-day, this too was carefully kept in check.

The delicious food spread included the North Indian cuisine which items like Dal Makhani, Tandoor Chicken. 

For the bride and groom, special stalls were put up. Alia Bhatt is a big fan of vegan burgers and the wedding had a vegan burger stall. Also, a sushi stall was installed for Ranbir Kapoor's love for sushi.

Think About Upcycled Clothes

Alia Bhatt is a sustainability advocate and to make her mehendi outfit special, she got her lehenga stitched using old textile patches, approximately 180 of them. 3000-hour intricate handwork of #Mijwan women led to the making of Alia Bhatt's stunning fuchsia pink lehenga. The handwoven silk ensemble by Manish Malhotra carried Banarasi brocades, jacquard, bandhani, Kachha Resham knots, and some scraps from brides.
