Every couple plans a lot for their Wedding which is no less than the most beautiful events in their life. Even with so much planning, it is very easy to step into a few pitfalls through this.

For this post we are discussing common mistakes couples make when they plan for their “D-Day” along with the tips to avoid them:

Money wasting

We know when it comes to the wedding; people get a bit of spendthrift. Everyone dreams of this beautiful event for so long that when it finally happens, we try to make sure that nothing lacks.

Also, don’t forget the vendors as they will just advise you and make more and more profit from you. It goes like that since forever. Hence you need to be considerate and careful. Make sure you are not spending money where you don’t need to. It can be over the expensive bridal outfit and jewellery or over having a luxury car at your wedding and reception when you’re at the same location.

Overlooking the wedding ceremony

Some of you might get, “WHAT” as of how can one overlook the wedding ceremony at the wedding. But there are many couples who just focus on the reception without forgetting that it’s the wedding ceremony which is the main event. Reception is just celebrating this unison. So make sure you don’t fall in the pitfall without giving enough thought for the wedding ceremony. Make sure you have the right seating arrangement, music, readings and everything else. You want to make sure that you cherish these moments forever as it is then when you say your vows and tie the knot officially.

A wedding without any personality

Yes, there are times when you go to a wedding which is devoid of the personalities of the couple. It’s not necessary to have a theme wedding but a lack of personality in the wedding make it one of the many gala events, nothing special or more than that. Do a little research and unfold your creativity to add unique charms to your wedding. For such an important day of your life, make sure you plan something that reflects your life.

Not having a back-up plan

It could never rain on my wedding day”, “what’s the need of emergency bridal kit”, these are some of the common thoughts couple have. That’s where they forget to plan for the things that might go wrong. Therefore you always need to have a contingency plan. For instance, you need to ask your vendor to make necessary arrangements as in an alternate location if there is rain. You can even have your bridal emergency kit for any last minute touch ups and snafus.

Without indulging your better half

We are living in the 21st century. So don’t let the fact to be just delegated to the bride. You both are getting married and hence you both should take active and equal participation in wedding planning. Take out some time to talk about the new ideas, make pointers based on research together, accordingly you can set wedding related goals and even keep a track on them. You are about to start this new journey together; so, include your better half in anything and everything.

In the end, don’t let yourself bogged down over little details and later regretting not spending enough time on what’s really important. Breathe and relax, the accidents or any mis-happening tend to become the funniest and cherished memories of the wedding.

5 Tips that will help BRIDE-TO-BE in “Rocking” her Sangeet Ceremony

0

Brides of the 21st century are breaking all the stereotypes. Gone were the days when they were just sitting and smiling while the whole family and friends are enjoying and dancing on their Sangeet ceremony. Now they take the lead in every step and then be it in choosing the designs for their Indian wedding cards or dancing their way on in their Sangeet ceremony. But as you need planning for organizing all these events, you need some planning tips for yourself too so that you can make the most of it.

Therefore, for this post we are sharing with your some tips that will help you in “rocking” your Sangeet ceremony:

  1. We all know how much we appreciate those Lehengas with heavy embroidery or stonework. There is no doubt that they look absolutely amazing but they won’t allow you to dance freely. Therefore as per your choice of outfit, you can go for some lightweight bridal outfits. They are very trending and let’s not forget the ease they offer while showing your “SWAG” on the dance floor.

2. Also don’t you think that you dancing on those several feet high inch heels is a bit risky unless you are Bey once obviously. Instead of those high inches heels, you can go for sneakers or even barefoot while dancing. Also not just for dancing, you can choose flats for the rest of the ceremony as well. Indian ceremonies are long events. Bearing the pain for so long will only make you feel all annoyed and tired. So, ditch all those stilettos or high heels get all ready to “SWING”.

3. The same thing goes with your make-up as well. You should stick to very light and breathable makeup. The last thing you want is to look all drained out and sweaty after that heavy makeup has its free fall with your dance. Also, don’t forget Indian has a very moderate climate and you will be all drained in sweat after your dance. Therefore wear light and sweat resistant make-up that doesn’t wash away as you make your move from one song to the next.

4. Another thing to take care of is your hairstyle. We all love open tresses as they go along with anything and look absolutely spectacular. But unfortunately, for a solo dance, try to make a half updo or pin them up using pins. You can ask the stylist to go for the hairstyle that can keep those tresses away from your face. In this manner, you look beautiful before and after the performance as well.

5. Lastly, be very particular when it comes to making the song choice. You can go for trending songs or choose any of your favorites from classics. But make sure the song goes with your personality and with the mood of the event as well. You can go for fusion as well, swinging on beats dedicated to different members of your family and for the love of your life.

Gone were the days when people say that getting married is an expensive thing. With so many tips from experts, you can easily plan a “LAVISH” wedding on a budget. For this post, we thought of shortlisting 5 money-saving tips that you should keep in mind while designing your Indian wedding invitations. These tips will help you in saving a lot of costs and also plan everything in a more efficient manner.

1.The first and foremost thing to decide is the wedding budget well in advance. Also, you need to determine that section of the total budget that needs to be allocated to wedding cards. So, the first thing is to determine that everything needs to be in the desired range. Everything from the vendor to the design needs to be in the budget that is decided for the wedding cards.

2. The next thing you want is to plan well in advance everything about the wedding invitations. Anything that is last-minute addition will only cost you more. So plan well in advance about the type of wedding invitations you want. Is it going to be the traditional Indian wedding card made of paper or you are going with e-wedding invitations? Take your time in research and compare prices asked by different vendors in exchange for their services. If you’re planning to order Indian wedding cards online, this advance planning will help you in saving a lot. Bulk printing will automatically reduce the cost and shipping costs will also be managed if you order well in time. For the last minute, they often ask for higher prices.

3. The third tip is to keep the wedding invitations simple. Indian wedding cards have got so many options and styles like the boxed invitations or scroll invitations and many more. The choices are never ending a bit if you’re on a budget, go for simple wedding cards free from all fuss. Also, don’t go for layers or several sheets of paper while making the choices for your wedding invitations.

4. Also, one important tip to remember is to proofread the first draft of the wedding invitations a couple of times. The first draft can be proofread and you can easily detect any printing errors any misspellings or any miss out things. Only when you’re sure then you can ask them to print the rest.

5. Another thing that can save up a lot is ordering extra wedding invitations. Many times couples tend to order as little as possible as they are afraid of going over the budget. But remember that there are good chances of last-minute additions in the guest list and some mistakes while penning address as well. If you order invitations then, it will cost you more than the previous order. Therefore go for ordering extra wedding invitations. You can decide the number of these extra wedding invitations.

A wedding is once in a lifetime event, so instead of going overboard with the budget, plan smartly and you can save you from spending a fortune and even have a wedding worth that.
