HARRY POTTER THEMED SANGEET
Here comes the best ever part in our wedding. Oct 27, 2017 was the most happiest ever day of our entire life. But the ground work to execute this was not a single man’s effort. I would like to thank Elegant weddings and their team for their complete dedication and hard work. Here, comes the story behind this :
My mother and I wanted to do something different for our Sangeet. When my parents visited the Universal studios, they totally liked the Harry Potter World. Considering that my fiancee is a Potter head, I thought surprising her with an Harry Potter themed Sangeet. My parents were as excited as I was and they also wanted to welcome their future daughter-in-law in a special way.
Since, I lived away from Chennai, it was hard for me to find an event decorator. Through a relative, my mom got Anusha’s (the emcee) and Tina’s (from Elegant Weddings) contacts. Since, we both lived in different timezones, brainstorming and communicating my ideas to them was a little challenging. To bridge that, we came up with the idea of discussing ideas and making a Powerpoint Presentation. After going through various iterations, we finalized the things that we wanted to have. Tina was so professional in the process of gathering requirements and she envisioned it in the same way as we thought. More than professionalism, she was passionate and excited about executing this with perfection.
When we decided to go with the Harry Potter theme, we also wanted this to look majestic, elegant, beautiful and entertaining for the Non- Harry Potter fans(guests) who would come to the wedding. So,we kept little mason jars filled with family photos and some Harry Potter themed props and photos for the others to enjoy.

Anyways after marriage, there’s always going to be a duel. So, we decided to have a one at our Sangeet!
Wait! We love GOT but this is not the Iron Throne. This is a throne made of Wands and not Swords.
