In our initial few years we did a wedding that came to us just 8 days before the actual wedding. Read all about it here

During the wedding we were to do a Mehendi setup in the lawn of the hotel and the Sangeet setup was to be in the hall. The mehendi was to start at 5:00 p.m. was to go on till 7:00 p.m. after which everyone would move into the hall for the sangeet.

We finish the outdoor set up by 12:00 p.m. Around 3 p.m. clouds came in and the chance of rain was eminent. when from the bride that we needed to move the setup inside. she was getting ready and didn't have time to deal with this issue she ask her cousin to take a call. Unfortunately the cousin wasnt from Bangalore and decided to check his phone's weather app and declared to us that it wouldn't rain. We tried to convince him that we knew Bangalore weather better and that was sure it is going to rain.

Since he insisted that we kept the setup as is, we decided to have a back up plan in place just in case. We sped up the work inside the hall and had it readied by 5.30 p.m. around 4.30 p.m. it started to rain. Just a drizzle at first, which gave us enough time to move in the takhat sets into the hall. Moments later the rain began to beat down. With last minute touches done, we were ready with a nice flute and saxophone jugal-bandhi to welcome guests and no one knew that a rain disaster was avoided ;)
