The big fat Indian wedding needs a lot of planning to do, something months ahead. This could be harrowing, especially for you managing your work schedules and your personal life, with little or no help at all. If that sounds familiar, we would want to take the monkey off the back and make this a seamless ride to D-Day, almost. Here are seven things to help you with a stress free wedding, take a look!
Hire a wedding planner
If your budget allows, we would ask you to check with a wedding planner that has expertise in handling events and weddings. Check for the number of years they have been in the industry, get client references to understand if attention to detail was taken care off or not, and hand over everything to them to deal with.
Get your fittings done a month in advance
Irrespective of who would be actually designing your wedding gown, ensemble or sari, you cannot take a chance with the fitting. It would be wise to give yourself three months in hand to start prepping up with the bridal wear. Narrow down the designer you want to work with on this one, and look at their portfolio. Discuss the theme of the bridal wear you want to dress up in, get your measurements done and let them handle the cutting thereafter. A month before the wedding, get your trials done, which would tell you where a nip and tuck would be needed. Don’t wait till the last moment.
Look for a wedding photographer
Keeping in mind your budget and your needs, look for wedding photographers of repute. Remember, this is your big day and just an ordinary photographer at the local studio down the lane with a DSLR in his hand wouldn’t suffice. Ask for client testimonials, a portfolio of at least four to five weddings, delivery time frame and their license to practice before embarking on one to work with.
The best bridal makeup artist
Bridal makeup artists are always in high demand, and you should book them months in advance. Check with four to five portfolios across the World Wide Web or social media, and then call upon one or two you liked the best to give you a demo. Some may charge for the demo and others may not, but getting a live demo should be done to ascertain if the bridal makeup artist understands the look you want or not?
Don’t forget the e-invites
Why e-invites? With all the running around and the stress on you, would you personally have the time to drop in and hand over the wedding cards? Even your family members would be busy, which is why getting help from Inksedge.com to create the best e-invites for your weddings would be a great idea to embark upon. The essence of the big fat Indian wedding isn’t lost in an e-invite; certainly not when the team customises and keeps it all traditional with a touch of modern likes.
Grab a night out with besties
With all the hullabaloo and pandemonium happening, your feet would ache and the soul would be tired. Take a weekend of with your friends and let your hair down; party the night out or host a pyjama party for the girls to let go off the stress! Very important to do or else your mind would be burdened with unwanted thoughts!
Back up plan B
With your wedding planner, check and re-check if things are going right and what PLAN B should be like. For keepsake have alternatives ready and around, because you don’t want to ruin the biggest day of your life!
Best of luck!by
