Luxebook October 2023

OCTOBER 2023 THE GIST India is set to record the highest ever revenue from 35 lakh weddings amounting to 4.25 lakh crore rupees in 2023. The lavish Indian wedding is back for good, after a brief intimate wedding phase because of the pandemic. Behind the fairytale, and the happily ever after, is an army of well-trained professionals who carry on the mammoth task of making sure the nuptials go smoothly and beautifully. Photographers, wedding designers, decorators, makeup artists, choreographers and event managers make sure the show goes on, while the wedding party revels in the coming together of two parties. We spot the latest in the wedding business – what’s in trend, from jewellery to wedding fashion, how wedding photography has evolved, the business of celebrity weddings and their dominance on the wedding market trends, and more. The personalisation of bridal jewellery for instance, caught our eye, as well as the rise in multi-cultural weddings influencing wedding fashion. Read on to see what’s in store for the wedding market in 2024. Payel Majumdar Upreti —Editor Weddings are serious business!
