Specialty stores are usually quirky, exclusive and fascinating, and a rarity in Mumbai! So when one of the city’s renowned wedding planners launches a store catering to wedding knick-knacks, be sure that they are retailing their expertise for the smallest of your wedding requirements.
Marry Me, a quaint store packed up on first floor of the building that houses Candies (needs no introduction), is a charming endeavour by Candice Pereria and Jarret D’Abreo. With years of wedding planning experience, they have mastered the art of customising giveaways and presenting the perfect gifts for weddings. They want it to be exclusive as nothing in the market meets their expectations.
If you want to give your guests a glimpse of celebrations that lie ahead, then the customised invitations is just for you. Also, stationery items to jot down wedding list, welcome notes for the guests, takeaway name card holders in accordance with your wedding theme, they stock it all!
What’s even more interesting is the way stationery items are artistically stocked around a vintage-looking typewriter plonked on the center of the table. While chatting with one of the owner, I found out that they had created the table using discarded balcony railings and an old piece of furniture. There are many such atypical display shelves like the discarded sewing machine table, bookshelf and garden table with 3 tiers.
Besides, a range of aroma candles, aroma oils, pot pourri, soap with personalised packaging, gift boxes and even wrapping paper are all custom-made. You will also find personalised photo frames, key cabinets, candle holders and cushion covers on display which can be designed befitting your wedding theme. For the big fat Indian wedding, you have sangeet and mehendi gifting items such as mehendi takeaway bags, envelopes, gift pouches and saree covers.
They even have customised eye masks for those flying to exotic locations for their honeymoon. From fun bachelorette gifts to monogrammed invitations with goodies baskets and exquisite trousseau packing covers, Marry Me leaves no stone unturned. Creative and quirky, this wedding store covers it all.
Jarret D’Abreo says, “We plan around 30 to 40 weddings a year but when we are not planning any wedding, we would like to extend our expertise in customising gifting options.”
The D-Day is approaching and you want it perfected to the T, so you know where to head!
