Ohh look you got goose bumps and I see a little Blushing .. I know we all dream of perfect fairy tale wedding !! OK if not fairy-tale we wish everything goes perfect from mehandi to Bidai. But to be honest marriage is the biggest event (at least in India) in any one’s Life specially you can see parents roaming here and there with lots of mischievous expressions . So a comprehensive wedding planning is must before getting into the wedding shoes.
What to plan ℘
So first thing first as a part of Wedding plan you should decide your “THE Wedding Budget “ .. Yeah that is the most important thing in any wedding plan , Once you decide the budget , from there starts your actual wedding plan.
Coming on to second most important thing is the ” Wedding Destination” Yup your wedding destination is the key point from where everything else will evolve. Now a days Destination weddings are Inn .
Recently in June 2017 I attended grand marriage of my cousin (baby Sister) which goes straight for 10 days . Imagine getting ready , makeup and outfit … two times a day for straight ten days (I have 2 year old son who is hyperactive by the way ) .There are so many functions from sangeet to Haldi followed by 3-4 receptions and if there is no function , the groom side called us for casual dinner & that means – you can’t take rest until we get married . 😛 😛
Anyways after these twos comes the next thingy which can be planned in parallel like
℘ Wedding Photographers ℘ Bridal and groom wear for all functions ℘ Wedding cattering – again very important !! ℘ Bridal Makeup ℘ Wedding Decorators ℘ Wedding cards ℘ Mehandi Artist ℘ jewelry for all functions ℘ packing your trousseau ℘ and so on .
Getting a help is a GREAT help
You must remember that movie “Band Baja Baarat” That was one movie which changed our thoughts 360 º on wedding planning. Just Imagine you have a budget of 10 Lacs .. and someone assures you everything will be done by them …you will get yourself a swinging chair and sip chai (or coffee .. I am a tea lover) smiling in your thoughts.
But finding one such good wedding planner or even a photographer can be a tricky game , remember wedding is a one time thing (for most of us :D)
The best way these days is to find wedding vendors online, see their work, know what people say about them and finalize them being in the comfort of your home. For eg: You can search and book bridal makeup artists in Delhi over here by browsing through a list of makeup artists and contacting them directly. You can also get ideas from bridal makeup photos from the real brides.
