We all have grown up watching films and some of us have also idolised movie stars, so how about we imagine infusing some Bollywood theme party ideas in one of our wedding functions? The music will definitely be foot tapping as you will have a lot of Bollywood tracks to choose from. And the decorations would be out of a Karan Johar film song.
For the ones who love their movies as they love themselves, a Bollywood themed pre-wedding bash will be ‘jhakaas’. Throwing in dollops of colour in your bash will result in a quirky vibe which plays on the kitsch factor. We all have been following the weddings of DeepVeer, Nickyanka and Ambani’s, so let us look at interesting ways to bring the enchanting world of Indian Cinema in our parties.
Here are Pre wedding Bollywood Theme Party Ideas
Venue For Your Bollywood Theme Party
The first step to throw any party is to finalise a venue. Pick a venue which allows you to bring in an external decorator as some on-site decorators might not be able to provide you with the Bollywood-y decoration you want. You can easily do that at BookEventZ and choose a recommended Flagship venue as those venues have efficient decoration staff.
Bollywood Party Invitation
Mimicking the old vintage style poster design, the invitation can be created in a filmi style. The surnames can be used to made to look like the producers. Inspiration can be taken from any rom-com of your choice. Here we have posters from Badrinath ki Dulhaniya and Tanu weds Manu. You can also automate the task of distributing e-invites using this free service.
Bollywood Style Party Entrance
The Entrance can serve as a great hook to keep your guests engaged for the entire duration of the bash. Two cutouts of cinematographers can be used to give that filmy feel. The entrance can be decorated with incandescent bulbs as if it is the green room of a movie studio. Or you can make it look like an award function and make it grand! A big star can be created and surrounded by old world film reels.
Bollywood Theme Party Interiors
Here you can go real filmy and try adding poster artwork with memorable dialogues from your favourite films. Sholay’s dialogues are really popular for this kind of artwork. You can also go for kitschy minimal posters which make the onlookers feel engaged. Your guests will be enjoying the decorations and making wild guesses with respect to what these posters are referring to.
Bollywood Themed Decorations
Bollywood Theme Party Stage
The Stage can be made to look like a movie set with the infusion of a crazy number of colours. To keep things desi, you can go for earthy tones and match those with colours from a Karan Johar movie and make your Bollywoodd theme party memorable
Bollywood Style Catering
You can quite easily create a diverse wedding menu and present it in a colourful manner for your bollywood theme party. When it comes to food, the important thing is that it should be tasty, but putting attention to details is always a great way to improve the experience of the guests and make them stay in sync with the theme. The use of traditional decorations with a fuchsia colour scheme creates a filmy look. The names of the dishes can also be given a cinematic twist with names like ‘Mogambo’s Gulab Jamuns’, Aakhri Pasta and Rab Ne Bana Diye Golgappe etc. For more ideas on how to decorate your dinner table, click here.
Bollywood Style PhotoBooth
You can go for a green screen photo booth where the subjects stand in front of a green screen and a frame is digitally created to make them look like parts of movie posters. Or, you can get these props for them to make them look like characters from your favourite film. Autorickshaws decorated in interesting ways also make for a good replacement for a photo booth.
In conclusion, we can say that these ideas are not exhaustive and each person can create newer ideas to celebrate Bollywood themed pre-wedding bash based on his or her association with films. To check out more ideas for different themed party ideas, click here.
