“Our target audience is anyone who is in love and wants to celebrate love,” declares Sonal Khatri, the co-founder of lacelebratio.com. The service that was launched last month by Sonal and her brother Karan, organises and coordinates your entire romantic date. Whether it’s a marriage proposal, a romantic date, wedding anniversary or any other kind of event for your loved one, lacelebratio.com comes to your rescue and that too in the budget that suits your pocket.
It’s in the budget
“We don’t charge on the basis of a certain bracket. It all depends on a person’s budget. It could be a nice romantic dinner that you want but we’ll make it a little special for you, in your budget. If you want something really lavish to spend on, we can get you the best of things. It could be a trip, a ride on the yacht or on a helicopter or a cruise. It all depends on your budget,” informs Sonal.
The idea of lacelebratio.com was born out of a hobby. “For the last 2-3 years, my brother was attached to romantic event planning, but only for friends and family. It wasn’t a business but a venture he pursued in his free time. Later, we gave it more thought and decided to launch it as a business,” explains Sonal, who also runs a website called marrya friend.com To get that perfect evening planned for the love of your life, you have to fill a Personal Relationship Questionnaire, which will analyse your partner’s likes and dislikes. Based on this analysis a personalised and unique idea will be created to make that special occasion memorable for you.
Other services that lacelebratio.com offers are Personal Stylist, who will analyse your personal style and bring out the best sense of style in you by recommending a wardrobe check or taking you to a session of simple shopping therapy. Then there is LC Club, a membership programme that gives you entry to Mumbai, Pune, Goa and Delhi’s most exclusive nightclubs, bars/lounges, hotels and many more spots.
“Before we brought the website live, we did a small survey in Mumbai where we asked different questions to different people aged between 21 and 40 years. We checked with them if they would like such services or whether they were interested in doing something like this. We got a very good response and even now, we get about 50-100 visitors everyday, which is great considering that we are still young and we have just started the website,” avers Sonal
