So yes, it is wedding season and all the photographers, wedding venues and caterers are racing against time to keep up with all the weddings they have contracts for. Gone are the days when an overbearing, organised, jugaadu and “responsible” maamu, dada or bada bapa was in-charge of a wedding. Today, we have wedding planners, a la Band Bajaa Baraat event organisers who take all the responsibility to ensure you have your hands free to celebrate and enjoy the wedding.
Odisha Sun Times has made a quick list of the wedding planners in Odisha, just in case you are looking for one:
Rohit Mathur, founder of Eventis wedding planners, has planned some amazing weddings with the highest being at the cost of Rs. 1.5 crores. “A lot of hard work and commitment goes into this profession,”says Rohit. “Excellent team work, systematic coordination, keeping a cool and composed mind during any emergencies, are some of the core strengths that a wedding planner should possess. Customers from Madhya Pradesh and a few other states come to Odisha for destination weddings because of the beautiful beaches,” he adds.
