Vintage Bollywood Glam

Vintage Bollywood Glam

Mita Events had the honor to be a part of the Indian Weddings Magazine event this February 2014. The event took place at the New Delhi Restaurant in the heart of San Francisco. The night was themed as Vintage Bollywood Glam. Guests arrived in their best red carpet apparel and had their photos taken at the entrance. The menu, which was put together by Ranjan Dey, had a traditional taste with a modern look.

The evening’s entertainment included Amita Bal’s Bridal wear showcased on models, mehndi application by Neeta Sharma, and a dance performance and lesson by Baraat Mob. Real and soon-to-be married couples were also there to give and receive advice on the Indian wedding trends.

Mita Events had a radiant turquoise and gold mandap set up with crystals. It caught the eye of each guest and it became the photo spot of the night. Keeping up with the new wedding trends, the peacock turquoise really popped in the restaurant. Special thanks to Indian Weddings Mag and Ranjan Dey for having Mita Events be a part of this glamorous night !

Vivah Lounge

Vivah Lounge – the Bay Area’s premier south Asian wedding and productions resource center – held an exclusive expo for its vendors on December 8th 2013 at Madhuban Indian Cuisine in Sunnyvale. All vendors had displayed their products and services spread throughout the restaurant. This event was held primarily for potential clients who were interested in our services for their upcoming productions. Attendees were able to talk face-to-face with vendors, see their work up close, and have more personal attention rather than at larger expos.

Other vendors such as Creative Vision Studios took extravagant photos of this event; Absolute Vibez provided lighting and music all throughout the day; Vama Designs set up a variety of bridal wear and provided apparel for models to walk about wearing them. M-Sutra Bride and Singar Studio showed their excellent services by doing hair and makeup for the models – Roop Bridal brought in clients for makeup trials. Our attendees appreciated the fact that we were not just standing at tables waiting around, rather we had taken a different approach and showed them what it is we actually do.

Kaustubha showcased beautiful jewelry, from traditional to high fashion. Vivah Celebrations displayed a wide variety of wedding invitations, favors, and many wonderful Indian products that give that perfect touch to any event.

Misha’s Cakery had a delicious setup of cupcakes to taste and cake designs for attendees to take a look at. Neeta of Mehndi Designer applied mehndi for guests, showing her extraordinary skills.

Wedding Insurance Explained

We all want our wedding day to be perfect, but sometimes the unexpected happens. Unforeseen productions, such as natural disasters or extreme illness, cannot only ruin your wedding day but also cost you a lot of money! To protect yourself, you may want to consider wedding insurance. Like other insurances, you will pay a premium for protection in the event of a disaster. To determine if wedding insurance is right for you, read below.

Weddings are an Investment
According to, the average wedding in 2013 will cost nearly $27,000! That is a lot of money to invest in your big day! For a few hundred dollars, you can protect your investment from productions such as a bankrupt vendor or family illness.

You Need to Read the Agreement
Most wedding insurance companies offer comprehensive coverage. This means you could be reimbursed for deposits, vendor payments, travel costs, and other expenses if you need to cancel or postpone the wedding. Of course, the reason for cancelation or postponement needs to be covered by the policy, so be sure to read the agreement carefully.

Protect Yourself from a Lawsuit
As ridiculous as it sounds, you can be sued if someone is injured at your wedding productions. While most vendors have their own liability insurance, you can protect yourself by purchasing personal liability insurance. Always ask to see documentation of the vendor’s liability insurance before signing a contract. You should also check that your venue has Liquor Liability Insurance if you will be serving alcohol at your reception. To be extra safe, you could purchase your own Liquor Liability Insurance.

What Wedding Insurance Covers
Some of the most common problems that are covered by wedding insurance include the following:
-Extreme Weather
-Serious Illness and Injury
-Vendors who don’t show up or go out of business
-Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Wedding Attire
-Military Absence

These are just a few things to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to purchase wedding insurance. To determine what option is best for you, talk to a professional. Hopefully you won’t have to use the insurance, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

How to Lose Weight before Your Wedding

According to the media, brides-to-be are using a feeding tube diet to quickly get in shape before their weddings. I was shocked that women would go to such extremes just to lose a few pounds they’ll end up gaining back. Plus, this diet looks so inconvenient. Here are four tips for getting that hot body for your big day the healthy way.

Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute
Losing weight takes time. For many people, losing one to two pounds a week is considered a healthy, achievable goal, so start getting in shape several months before your wedding. If you start early, you won’t have to search for a quick fix when the wedding date gets near.

Say Good-bye to Junk Food
If you want to look good, you have to eat good. The key to a successful diet is balance. Focus on vegetables, fruits, lean protein, whole grains, and low fat dairy, but allow yourself an occasional treat. You are more likely to stick to your healthy eating plan if you don’t deprive yourself.

Hit the Gym
An effective weight loss strategy combines cardio, strength, and flexibility. Try to find activities you enjoy so you are more likely to stick to your routine, and don’t be afraid to try new things. Busting out of an exercise rut can be as simple as trying a new aerobics class or adding weights to your routine.

Think About Allergies
Food allergies cause inflammation in your body and can make you bloated. Many women are allergic to dairy or gluten and don’t know it. If you have an allergy, eliminating the culprit can help you lose weight. Talk to your doctor if you think you may have a food allergy, and keep a food journal to track how your body reacts to the different foods you eat.

You can look and feel gorgeous as you walk down the aisle without torturing your body with unhealthy diets. Healthy weight loss is possible! All you have to do is follow the tips above and start making changes to your lifestyle. You may also want to consult with a doctor or personal trainer.
