The venue for an Indian wedding is one of the most crucial elements, and not just for the space it provides. It serves multiple other purposes including setting the ambiance, providing photographic aesthetics, and allowing a long line of guests to feel comfortable. We know just how important it is for you to get married at a place that feels special and at the same time stays within your budget and location preferences.

From exquisite mountain locales with panoramic views to dreamy sunset shores overlooking the grand ocean and old-school rustic summer camp vibes, we have a wedding venue for every taste and budget. We believe that the perfect wedding venue is one that reflects the true beauty and tradition of an Indian wedding, whether it is an elegant and simple ceremony or a colorful and extravagant celebration. Count on us to find your perfect venue, for a Hindu, Sikh, or any South Asian-style wedding ceremony.
Once your dream venue is set, it is time to decorate it and make it as magical as you imagined it.

For the same reason, we have excellent sources for fresh yellow marigolds, red roses, purple orchids, white jasmine, orange chrysanthemums, pink carnations, and many more.

Photography and Videography
Indian wedding photography is an art. At ForUrEvents, we believe that the pictures and videos of a wedding stand as a true testimony to the colorful, culture-rich, and emotionally touching events that unfold on the day. Only a dedicated and talented photographer can capture those special moments in a way that allows families to cherish the wedding many years down the line. That is why we have our own team of photographers and videographers who have more than 10 years of experience filming different styles of Indian weddings in Chicago. Being outstanding visual storytellers, they make sure to film all the important elements of an Indian wedding including the colors, the outfits, the rituals, the traditional elements, the emotions, and everything else in between, and deliver it in a way that gives you a cinematic experience. From the pre-wedding ceremonies like “Haldi” and “Mehendi”, to the “Baraat” to the first look to the “vidaai” ceremony and following wedding portraits, our in-house team of photojournalists can capture all the right moments at the right times and from the right angles.
As a holistic Indian wedding planner in Chicago we know that getting the shots right is of prime importance to the bride and the groom, and rest assured, you will be leaving it in the safest hands.
Food and beverage
They say food is one of the main attractions of an Indian wedding, ahead of even the bride and groom. And as a home-grown brand with roots in South Asia, we know that it is absolutely true; food definitely speaks volumes about the love and care that the hosts have to offer to the guests. We know you’d rack your brains over this one, trying to find the best authentic Indian caterers to give your guests the warmth and love of homemade food. And that is exactly, why we have our in-house team of caterers including line chefs, master chefs, menu planners, mixologists, and more, ready to give you an exceptional authentic cuisine experience at your wedding. We also provide bar counters and related services for cocktail parties or other pre and post-wedding parties, institutional catering services, tenting, and decoration and location rentals along with our wedding planning services.
Why ForUrEvents is your best bet in food and beverage planning in Chicago
We all know that food is perhaps the messiest affair at a wedding. For starters, it needs hours and hours of work in preparation, the logistics have to be perfect in terms of time as well as efficiency so as not to let any food item go to waste, and at the end of the day, it has to leave the guests full and spellbound with taste. Having to look for authentic Indian caterers in Chicago and then having to coordinate with a separate logistics team to ensure that the cooked food is transported safely to the venue is extremely stressful and it increases the risk of things going wrong. That is why it is always best to hand food and beverage-related services for weddings to planners that have in-house cooks and logistic teams. At ForUrEvents, we have menu planners and chefs to get the food ready in time and we also have perfectly designed logistic options waiting to get the food to the venue. We also have cleaning professionals to help clean up the place once the event is over. Apart from that, our dynamic catering team constantly tries to spread the best authentic Indian food at every wedding table, regularly evolving with new innovations in the market, and trying to improve the flavors, textures, and overall experiences with each order. We also always try to use locally sourced produce for our food including fresh vegetables and cured meat. In fact, we strive to learn and apply age-old methods of preserving and curing meat from around the world in order to provide the highest quality natural food at weddings, as opposed to chemical-induced foods being served today. We all know that authentic Indian food is incomplete without spices. Understanding the value of our special ingredients we also source our spices directly from India so that we get to give your guests the best taste of home. In every way, the ForUrEvents food and beverage team ties us together as one of the best Indian wedding planners in Chicago, as we provide a well-rounded array of services in catering from cooking to logistics to cleaning up. From quick bites at Sangeet ceremonies to innovative drinks at cocktail parties to scrumptious five-course meals at weddings, we have everything you need, customized to your requirements.

Bridal makeup and hair
One of the most exciting things for a new bride, apart from getting married to the love of her life, is getting ready for the big day. Being a bride is an out-of-the-world feeling and it comes from knowing that everything from the outfit to the makeup and hairstyling is just perfect. For the same reason, every bride is quite picky and selective in her choice of makeup looks, outfits, hairstyles, and accessories. Every bride is also different and unique in their preferences. That is why we have an in-house team of trained and certified bridal makeup artists as well, ready to transform you into a gorgeous diva on your wedding day. We specialize in professional airbrush makeup, sweatproof and waterproof, perfect to last long and tiring hours on a wedding day. When posing with your groom, the last thing you want is to be worried about your makeup creasing or getting cakey. We also offer 4K quality makeup that gives you the perfect flawless finish even on the highest definition camera lenses. At ForUrEvents, we believe in offering highly customized bridal makeup services. How she wants to look is the sole vision of a bride and we love going all out to make that vision a reality.
For that our team will work closely with you through one-on-one meetings and phone calls to get that vision on the table and to execute it with flawless perfection. As a team, we will collectively go through aspects like skin tone, color board, hair color, the wedding theme, etc., and come up with exciting options for you.
Once we have decided on a few options we offer paid trials a few months prior to the D Day, so that you know exactly how your makeup and hair are going to look on your wedding day, with no last-minute surprises. You can avail of the trial in the comfort of your home with extra charges, or at our makeup studio. We highly recommend our paid trial feature as it also gives you a chance to review the quality of the products we use, apart from allowing you to make sure that the hair and makeup are exactly how you envisioned them. Here is an overview of the kind of services we provide in our entire package of hair and makeup as a holistic Indian wedding planner in Chicago.

Draping of outfit

And we believe that every wedding celebration deserves a talented and skilled DJ who knows not just the technical aspects of mixing music but also how to get an Indian crowd to get down. As you may have guessed, we also have our own trained in-house DJs to level up the festivities at any desi party, particularly South Asian weddings. We use the best of tech in music, updated consoles, sub-woofers, and top-tier equipment to ensure hassle-free celebrations. Apart from a conventional DJ artist we also provide dhol players, master of ceremonies, custom monograms, atmospheric lighting, motivational dancers, and even mehendi artists to make your events colorful and exciting.
