Since their beginning in 2015, Plush Weddings has executed more than 200 dream weddings, with more than 75 of those being NRI weddings. Their strength lies in planning interfaith and inter-cultural weddings that amalgamate traditions — complete with all the quirks and eccentricities. Utkarsh says, “As a wedding planner, you have to build a very personal connection with the families. You have to envision the fairytale that the couple has in their dreams and turn it into a magical reality.” Ruchika adds “I love getting to know our clients and design to whatever beat they live their lives. The entire process for us is bespoke, as no two weddings are alike. From ‘The best wedding locations’ to ‘What to wear to a wedding?’, you have to be ready with a personalized recommendation for everything, and one that resonates with the client.”

While getting married in hot locations, such as Udaipur, can cost a boatload of money, several couples are now turning to heritage boutique properties across India & abroad or are choosing to marry in their ancestral homes or place where they first met. These fascinating destinations can provide a unique experience at an affordable price tag. Wedding planning has become an extremely competitive industry with several new and exciting entrants serving up fabulous events on a regular basis. Utkarsh says, “Despite being in a very competitive industry, wedding planners are very collaborative. We all understand that there is a big enough pie for everyone, and in order to succeed, we have to share our vision and ideas.”
