Piece of Jugglery
Holy Cow! Where's the bride? The anxious guests are about to declare the bride's been missing when she appears in a glass cabinet on stage decked up in wedding attire amidst the billowing smoke holding a magical wand and chanting a magic spell which makes her husband-to-be emerge from a giant lotus! Countless of such stupendous magic tricks are a glamour quotient for the couple and a visual delight for the guests.

One Step At A Time

The clunking and whirring of bikes can steal anyone's attention. Whether the bride arrives on a bike driving or sitting behind her father or brother, the scene is definitely going to be eye catching. The groom arriving on a bike with floral decorations or simple and sober is an admirable entry concept too.

Let's not try to figure out who is who because this marriage endeavor is nothing but a deck of cards - It all begins with two hearts and a diamond; while journey towards the end makes you feel you had a club and a spade!
