Indian weddings are largely lavish affairs, where the families of both the bride and bridegroom leave no stone unturned for making this big day a memorable occasion. The wedding planning begins months before and the level of detailing which goes into it is truly astounding. Here, FB Celebrations - Event Companies in Mumbai share some valuable tips as to how you can successfully plan your Great Indian Wedding.
Jumping in instantly into the wedding planning process without any discussion with your fiance, will only lead to heartache later, when things don’t fall into place and the entire wedding plan begins to go haywire.
Don’t be surprised when everybody and everybody’s uncle feels that it is their moral responsibility and self-acquired right to bombard you with their opinions. Of course, it is important to take opinion from those whom you consider close and, of course, worthy of giving an opinion. However, we suggest that you take opinion and advice only from a small and trusted group, rather than “throwing it open to the house”.
Let’s be frank about it - along with yours, it is also a wedding where your close family members are involved as it is also an event for their happiness and joy. Important members will want to do something which you are not comfortable with, so we suggest that you go along with their suggestion it it does radically clash with your views on the same.
While we perfectly understand that eliminating unnecessary expenses can surely help you save, you should avoid slashing those expenses which will end up showing on your wedding day and become the cause of embarrassment. These would probably include that extra lighting or that designer water fountain.
Now this is really important. Make sure that you try out your wedding dress multiple times before wearing it on your wedding day, so that any “loose or tight” surprises are taken care of smoothly. Also, when you are trying out your wedding dress, you must also wear all the other accessories such as jewellery, shoes, hand adornments etc.
The high point of every bride’s make-up on her wedding day, is the mehndi design on her hands. Your female friends and cousins will surely fall over each other wanting to see the coordinated mehndi design on your hands. We suggest you engage the services of a professional mehndi artist, after carefully analysing the designs in her portfolio, i.e. what designs she has actually created, versus the catalogue which she shares. It does not always happen that the final design exactly matches the design shown in the catalogue.
Of course, your guests are all delighted at joining you on your big day. However, their real interest is the fun they can have by feasting on delicious food, drinking the best of cocktails and mocktails and dancing away to foot-tapping numbers. You must abandon any thoughts of curtailing the expenses on these three things. Remember, the decor in your wedding will soon be forgotten, but the dining and entertainment experience will be fondly remembered by your guests for a long, long time.
