Professional Wedding Management
Making Dreams Come True
Weddings: Blight or Bloom
Lord Byron has defined marriage as: “The bloom or blight of all Men’s happiness.” Marriage, which signifies the cooperation that the gods decreed would lead human beings towards the attainment of their ultimate goal, represents an auspicious occasion. This occasion marked by joyous celebration of the joining of man and women in holy matrimony, of bonding, of the relative security of two persons beings together as one unit, part of a family, of a community and , by logical extension, a part of society. Marriage is perhaps one of the oldest institutions of the world. A lifelong relationship between two individuals who vow to care for each other and share their joys and sorrows, and promise to support and the concept of marriage, too, has changed over the ages.
Marriages have always been governed by customs, traditions, usages and conventions from time immemorial. Beginning with the practice of “Gandharva marriage”, in which by only placing a ring on the bride’s finger, the marriage was treated as valid and proper, to the brilliance and grandeur of the current-day celebrations, the wedding ceremony has experienced many transformations in form, although, there has been little dilution in its substance.
This course encompasses a study of customs and rituals, of communities and regions in the India subcontinent, with a view to incorporating them appropriately in the wedding ceremonies. In every session, you will find helpful guides on etiquette (both traditional and contemporary views,) and ready- to use checklists to help organize every facet of a wedding. The checklists deal with all outside services you will be depending upon including caterers, photographers, florists, musicians, car rentals and so on.

The Program :
We would like you to run through a common quote cum explanation on what we do get from our prestigious clients.
“When my husband and I decided to get married, I had always thought I could handle all of the arrangements on my own. A few months before our wedding, I had attended my sister’s wedding and the poor thing was all over the place worrying about everything from ‘why aren’t the flowers here yet’ to ‘did the musicians set up in the right place?’
I knew that I could not let this happen to me. I’m a bit of a worrier and very picky. This meant I needed someone to help. It had to be someone with vast experience and have the ability to make fast decisions under pressure.
I honestly could not have been more blessed when I met Neeta Raheja of Creative Explosions. She fit every idea I had in my mind. She remembered everything we had talked about like a family member would. She was able to accomplish everything I needed and so much more. We had an outdoor ceremony in the mountains and she actually researched other weddings up there to give us information we would have never known if it was not for her. When it comes down to it, she was like having family there without all the hysteria!
On the day of the wedding I didn’t have a worry in my mind about the caterer or the musicians. All I was thinking about was how lucky I was to be marrying the man of my dreams. The day was flawless. That would have never been the case if I didn’t know that Neeta was there to worry for me just like I would.
Thank you, Neeta from the bottom of our hearts. We could have never done it without you!”

Media coverage of Event Organizer :
Neeta Reheja has planned more million dollar weddings that she cares to remember, but she can still get nervous when a big, expensive show is about to go off. On this occasion, she was standing on the wedding ground amid thousands of awed guests, watching the grandest entrance she had ever been asked to pull off. Two helicopters were flying in low, and as they hovered over the crowds, the groom was lowered from a cable onto the stage. A massive construction crane rumbled from just outside the wedding grounds, and its huge arm wheeled around to deposit the bride next to her new partner.
The second helicopter started dumping fresh rose petals by the bucketful, and, right on cue, a DJ started playing a popular hindi song about lovers flying through a shower of rose petals. For more details follow this link.
