WeddingWish to go for a Bollywood-type marriage with limited budget? Your dream may now just come true as there is an entire industry ready to be at your service.

Given the nod, the city's wedding planners will be raring to go to make each and every moment of your D-day a unique and memorable experience and that too with all the grandeur and pyrotechnics for something as low as Rs 3 lakh.

"It's a myth that only the upper-urbanised class was keen on designer weddings. It's not always about spending a million dollars," says decor stylist and wedding planner Swati Pandya Sood. What is most important according to her is that "your style shows".

"Weddings in India are lifestyle-oriented. Everything needs to be designer and contemporary. It's about making a statement," feels Sood, owner of Bollywood Secrets.

The trend of hiring wedding planners is growing even among the middle class as these expert professionals give a personalised touch to a marriage ceremony by making it theme based as per the choice of bride and groom.

"What makes a designer wedding different from its traditional form is a theme-based arrangement as here we incorporate innovative ideas with the help of state-of-the-art techniques to make the biggest day of a couple's life special and unique," says Manik Chopra of Mansha Wedding.
