A wedding is more than a union of two people; it’s a time when friends and family get together and create memories that stay forever. To keep these celebrations and traditions alive with changing, Novotel launched Vivaah at Novotel – a unique concept of contemporary virtual weddings. Novotel Bengaluru Outer Ring Road showcased Vivaah at Novotel to its guests recently. They experienced the hotel in its new avatar as a wedding venue that everyone dreams of, combined with the best hospitality services. The hotel was decked up in con-temporary and traditional wedding décor, showcasing the glamour and glitz of the perfect wedding setup. Guests were given the traditional wedding dhol welcome along with a saafa followed by a tour of the event spaces which displayed mandaps, reception stage and decor options for all kinds of weddings.

Maverik Mukerji, General Manager Delegate, Novotel ibis Bengaluru Outer Ring Road commented on the showcase, “We all are adapting and living in a new normal world with new learnings. Vivaah at Novotel is a result of our learning curve and a step ahead in terms of integrating traditions with digitization and the need of the modern world. I am glad that we are able to give our guests the opportunity to share important celebrations with their loved ones while ensuring everyone is safe. The response we have received so far has been overwhelming and guests are loving the new concepts that help make their weddings unique and interesting at the same time.”

Complete your celebrations with Shagun & Dawat

Giveaways and food are the most integral part of Indian weddings which were captured in its true essence by Shagun and Dawat offerings under the Vivaah at Novotel concept. With Dawat by Novotel, guests attending virtual weddings who are based out of key cities with a Novotel property will have the same culinary experience delivered at their home, which is being served at the host hotel and will be able to enjoy the same delicacies as the bride and groom. If a particular town other than the host city has a substantial number of guests, Novotel also provides the option to book a banquet in that particular city, which will project the wedding on a big screen. The same food and beverage services will be provided at the banquet for guests to feel a part of the same celebration. Shagun by Novotel is the perfect giveaway solution for families who have guests spread across different cities that ensures timely delivery of gift hampers to their relatives and friends.

Wedding extravaganza at Blue Terrain

The hotel hosted all the invitees to a night of culinary delights at the open-air poolside restaurant, Blue Terrain. The venue had the perfect wedding vibe with a mehndi booth, haldi stage and European style wedding décor. The culinary team displayed their skills over live counters serving authentic chaat and sweets prepared in-house, a must for every Indian wedding. Guests thoroughly relished hand-picked regional and global cuisines along with a variety of innovative beverages.

To ensure the safety and hygiene of all guests, Novotel Ben-galuru Outer Ring Road has an enhanced ALL-SAFE program that equips the property with the most stringent cleaning standards and operational procedures in the world of hospitality. With Vivaah at Novotel, guests get to select a host hotel in any city as their wedding venue. To bring the couple’s dear ones closer to them on their wedding, the host hotel extends the web telecast of the wedding to their relatives and friends present in different cities. The host family of the wedding gets a chance to share every moment of the wedding with their loved ones in real time – the joy of togetherness, the singing and dancing during the baraat, the rituals, the ceremonies, even from miles apart. Vivaah at Novotel bestows multiple packages, be it a grand luxurious wedding or an intimate wedding and everyone is sure to find the perfect fit for their celebration.
