Want a perfect wedding? Insure it

What do you do when on the day of your marriage the caterer fails to arrive? Or the wedding venue gets flooded due to rain? Honestly, there’s not much you can do, except go to a back-up caterer and a back-up venue, if you have one. However, most people don’t have back-ups is such cases.

While your prestige may take a hit, you can keep your pocket safe. How? By insuring your wedding.

What is wedding insurance?
Just like we have life insurance to protect our life, car insurance to safeguard our car and health insurance to secure our health, we have wedding insurance to ensure our wedding goes off smoothly.

Is it required?
Over a period of time, marriages have evolved from a simple ritual to a complex affair where lakhs are spent on lavish ceremonies. Besides, costs of all the services involved in providing marriage facilities have gone up. So if anything goes wrong, the parties involved can suffer heavy losses. This is where having an adequate wedding insurance will help. It will give you peace of mind as you are assured you won’t lose any money.

Coverage of wedding insurance
Different insurance companies have different types of wedding categories. Some of the most common ones include: personal accident, postponement/cancellation, damage to property, burglary, money and public danger. However, some insurance companies do offer certain specific categories of cover like food poisoning.

Selecting the right type of insurance cover
With so many types of covers being available, you have to choose the right cover carefully. For that, consult an insurance agent or request your wedding planner (if you have one) to help you out in selecting the right cover. Also, get the details of every section covered in writing. Read it carefully and ask questions if you find some important points are not covered. Moreover, get in writing from the insurance company the method of claiming money and the necessary documents required to be submitted to make a claim. For example, if anybody falls ill at the marriage party, you will have to submit a doctor’s certificate stating the nature of the person’s illness. If you intend to provide cover to your relatives, you will have to mention their names when submitting the forms for buying the policy.

Choosing the right amount of insurance
The premium of wedding insurance is quite nominal. For a premium of Rs. 12,000, you can get an insurance cover of Rs. 8 lakh, which covers all the categories of covers. But you can exclude some covers, thus reducing your premium amount.

Changing beauty trends since the 1940’s…!!!

Are you a big fan of Madonna’s material girl looks? what about the doe-eye make up of our yesteryear’s actresses? Just like fashion; beauty trends have seen an evolution over the ages.Every new decade brought with it innovative, sometimes outrageous, ideas that has managed to create a stir amidst the connoisseurs. Presenting you an amalgamation of the looks that have rocked the different eras…

1940’s

Think 40s and the image of ethereal Madhubala comes fleeting before the eyes. The auburn hair, peaches and cream complexion and full pink lips remain unmatched. The epitome of the beauty reflected some of the most pertinent styles of the era. Throughout the gleaming waves were in vogue. Wearing a lock of hair that covered one eye was the hairstyle that most symbolized the era. After the pale look of the 30s, lips were well defined and made to look larger right through the 40s. Shades of red including clear bright reds, cherry reds, pinkish reds, and orange reds or rasberry were used in a generous fashion.

1950’s

During the 50’S, The focus shifted to the eyes, but not completely away from the lips. The doe eye, created with shadow on the lids, eyebrow pencil,mascara, and heavy eyeliner became fashionable. Mind you, the mascara, as we see it now, with a tube and wand applicator was introduced for the first time in the 1950s. Even though this iconic style was introduced almost seven decades earlier, it continues to be popular favourite with Indian girls today. In terms of hairstyle, the bouffant was the trend setter. Think of Vyjayanthimala and Waheeda Rehman. Hair was waved and fit to frame the face, or to be pulled back. Sometimes hair were extremely short way above the ears, as if they had been cut with a hair trimmer. This was also the period of scarves and turbines.

1960’s

This was the era of big hairdos. Extravagant bouffant with curls falling on the shoulder, giving one the classic look. Curls were in a big way; whether the big deep ones, small tight ones or spit curls. The decade brought a total change in make up style, with the emphasis totally on the eyes. Lip color saw a revolution, with pale, pastel tones and icy shades, without any colour, to add further emphasis on the eyes. Eye make-up was heavy, with black eye liner being extended beyond the eyes. Epitomising this era were actresses like Asha Parekh, Sharmila Tagore and Sadhana whose youthful vigour and unique styles are still talked about.

1970’s

1970’s was the time of the hippie movement that captured audiences the world over. It gave way to the natural look in terms of make up, hairstyle as well as fashion. Freely falling curls, short and sassy wedge cut, bronzed skin and glossy lips created a sensation in this era.

1980’s

Disco era had arrived with the beginning of the 1980’s, the age of excess, as many call it. Brought to the forefront by Madonna with her ‘material girl’ video, this was the era of wild experimentation with all the colors on the palette. It was all about heavy makeup with vibrant neon colors and intentionally messed up and off colored hair. Inspirations were mostly derived from individual experimentation and followed as a trend there on.

1990’s

In the 1990’s, standards of beauty was incredibly diverse and constantly changing. There was one section that went in for wash and wear dos and the other that experimented with cuts and styles. Another section that crossed over to the extreme were in tongue, eyebrow and nose piercings also came in vogue.

2000’s

The millennium brought with it many changes in the world of beauty. Perm went straight. Waves and curls completely taken out.Re-bonding, extensions, and straightening were the vogue of the season in the early 00’s. Color added a new dimension to it. Women were experimenting with color again from tawny golden to mahogany browns to flaming orange. Thick eyelashes and flaming lip colors like fuchsia, reds and oranges came back around in this decade.

2010- present

Hair extensions and nail art has been a wonderful trend that has really caught up in these two years. Sleek and shiny, braids, ponytails, pixie cut, extreme side parts were the favorite hair trends and styles in 2011. The biggest make up trends were metallic eye shadows, cat eyes, geometric shadows and chiseled cheeks. Bright lip color may have had the best year ever in 2011. All shades looked stunning in hues of crimson, fuchsia, violet and bold orange. The bold lip color complemented with bold blush, liner and mascara added to the dramatic look of the season.

4 Tips to select your wedding theme

Having a colour theme for your wedding can help bring together the various elements and create a unified look. If you’re trying to decide on a suitable colour theme for your wedding, then here are four practical tips to help you make your choice.

1. Choose a wedding colour theme based on your favourite colour or flower.

A good starting point for choosing a wedding colour theme is to look at whether you, or your partner, have any favourite colours or flowers. If there’s a particular type of flower that you love, and would like to include in your bridal bouquet or in any other wedding flowers, then do check first that it’s in season when you’re getting married, otherwise it could be tricky getting the flowers.

2. Pick one main colour for your wedding theme.

Don’t get carried away and pick too many colours for your theme. Ideally, it works best to have one main colour, such as blue, burgundy or pink, for the primary theme. If you want to have other shade tones too, then these can be combined, like pastel colours or red and pale pink, but too many strong colours can be confusing.

 3. Make sure your wedding colour theme will fit with the venues you’re using.

Before you finalise your choice of colour theme for your wedding, make sure that it will work in the venues you’ve chosen for your ceremony or reception. For example, if the reception venue has curtains, carpets or wall colours that could clash with your chosen colour, it may not be a good choice

4. Choose a colour that will go well with the season in which you’re getting married.

When you’re debating colour theme choices, don’t forget to think about the season in which you’re getting married. Although you don’t necessarily have to stick to this, many brides find that winter weddings work well with darker colour choices, such as purple, burgundy or deep green, whereas spring and summer weddings work well with brighter colours or pastel shades. If you want to use flowers that are in season, this is particularly important to consider, as yellow daffodils or red poinsettias are both seasonal flowers that aren’t available all year round.
