3. What’s your competitive advantage and why can’t it be copied?
“I understand there is immense competition in the industry I belong to, and it’s easy to be replicated. But while all tangible things & services can be replicated, the experience we give to our customers can never be replicated” .
As a design company, every wedding we create takes a lot of time- fleshing out each detail and micromanaging every small element, which is why we only design ten weddings a year. The truth is our clients don’t come to us because we design the best weddings in the country – they hire us because we believe in the same principles- of sustainability, authenticity, being personal and true to yourself.”
Making dreams come true is a real job and we as a team take this seriously. Team M is filled with style-conscious people who create authentic gatherings and celebrations that are completely design-led. We focus on Meticulous Planning, Designing, and Conceptualizing & Executing the Entire Event with utmost love and dedication and have planned spectacular weddings across Bangalore, Mysore, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Hampi. Our team will make sure that we weave characters and personalities to create an atmosphere that feels nothing less than a dream for you.
4. How do you define success?
The best way to plan a wedding is from the perspective of someone attending it. People plan and design the most beautiful weddings and completely overlook the needs of the guests we are hosting it for.
Very often we get so involved in planning the micro details that we miss that this is a celebration. The most important thing is for the family to hand over everything before the wedding and truly enjoy themselves. A close second would be to account for what the guests need, ensuring that they are comfortable and game for all that you have planned for them.
5. Tell our audience more about your failures? How should one bounce back?
“This is an extremely demanding field where mistakes are not only frowned upon but are not expected. It looks quite glamorous from the outside but creative decor and good food is just the start of any event. Everyone plans the most immaculate event in their heads, making it a reality is upon us and we enjoy it the most! It opens me up as a person and allows me to keep giving my best.”
Space out your functions, provide sufficient seating, create experiences that engage guests, and induce conversations. Think about the food and what you and your family enjoy eating as opposed to what is fashionable to serve. Be comfortable in your clothes so you can enjoy your wedding, spend less time getting dressed and more time at the functions.
