Baat Pakki Menu Ideas

As they say, first impression is the last impression! Consider going all out for your in-laws and husband-to-be with a lavish dinner. We suggest appetizers like chicken tikka, mini samosas, a wide assortment of BBQ, chana chaat, gol gappay, and chicken roast. A treat for literally everyone.

For the main course, consider mutton pulao or biryani depending on preferences, alongwith some haleem, nihari, or qorma with fresh salad and raita. For this occasion, both a sit-down dinner and a lavish buffet setting can be incorporated. But consider the space you'll be serving the dinner at before choosing either one.

Since this is the first of many joyous wedding occasions to follow, we recommend keeping the dessert items as a wide variety of mithai. It'll be serving both the purposes; sharing the joyous news with everyone and including them in such a big event as well. We suggest classics such as gulab jaman and barfi to kaju and boondi ladoo as guaranteed hits.

Try topping the evening off with a constant flow of chai, green tea, and even Kashmiri “pink” tea throughout!

Decor Ideas

Considering the intimate nature of Baat Pakki event, it is mostly preferred to host this event at the bride’s home. You may wish to decorate the interior with a variety of fresh flowers, and fairy lights around the staircases. Place candles on the buffet table for a touch of elegance!

For the table setting, consider using pastel tablecloths with embroidered napkins and formal cutlery. It's better to take some time out to organize flowers in the centerpieces. Some popular options include marigolds, white roses, and lilies with baby breath.

Outfit for Baat Pakki

The bride-to-be may wish to dress according to her comfort and preference. She may choose outfits in shades of mint green, lavender, pastel hues, or white and gold. Elegant but simple styles of shalwar kameez, lehnga, or a flowy gown with simple embroidery. Nevertheless, pastel colors are a safe option when it comes to pre-wedding events like this one.

You may wish to add a statement dupatta with more detailed embellishments or heavy lace on it! If you're keeping the colors and overall look light, heavy laces will look really good.

Makeup for this day is usually kept light and fresh. Go for a natural makeup with a dewy look, nude lips, and a soft blush as the way to go!

The groom-to-be might wish to wear a formal shalwar kameez in white, beige, or ivory, according to his preference at this occasion! Donning a sherwani is always an option! But if you choose any of our suggested looks, no matter what he chooses to wear, you both are going to look absolutely dreamy together.

Sweet Ending to this Intimate Event

You can add the perfect touch by having the couple to cut a beautiful cake! Khushi ke moqay per, mu tau meetha karna hai na! Select a flavor that everyone loves and order a customized cake with an elegantly decorated exterior! If you don't want to opt for fondant cakes, you have plenty of other options in the market. Even the butter cream cakes can be customized so beautifully these days.

Cutting the cake together can be a special moment for the new couple-to-be. We suggest accompanying this sweet gesture with a toast or heart felt wishes for the happy couple by the heads of both families. Or even close friends and family members too.

Planning a “Baat Pakki” event requires careful attention to detail specifically when it comes to menu selection and decor. This event serves to make the happy news of the union of two families official. So make sure the feel is reflected in every thing that day. This evening is also the perfect way for an icebreaker between the families and an even more perfect way to celebrate this new journey.
