Five Tips On Surviving A Big Fat Indian Wedding
Indian weddings are big affairs and famously enormous spectacle! From glamorous clothes to setting delicious food to being part of multiple ceremonies, all this requires months of planning and arrangements.
There’s a lot that goes into the making of ‘a big fat and extravagant Indian wedding,’ and at Opulent Event Designs, we know how it can be a tad overwhelming and tiring. But, we can help you through thoughtful planning and ensure you don’t overdo the wedding preparations.
So if you’re ready to tie the knot with the love of your life, here are some tips to help you survive a big fat Indian wedding!
Tip #1: Be cautious of your spending
Planning a wedding isn’t easy, especially when you have to try to make everyone around you happy. With opinions of what you should do and add, your bank account can start depleting really quickly. I would highly recommend creating a shared excel spreadsheet with your partner. One sheet can have your budget, and the second sheet can show how much you actually spent along with your unexpected expenses. Every time you spend money on anything wedding-related, make sure you document it. It will help you keep an eye on your expenses and really put into perspective how much you have been spending.
Tip #2: Create a joint email for you and your partner to share
Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and the last thing you need is a flooded personal inbox with wedding-related messages. Creating a joint email for contacting wedding vendors and RSVPs is the best way to keep organized and also helps you avoid post-wedding spam mail.
Tip #3: Create a wedding to-do list time-line
When you have a million things to do, the best thing is to write down a list of all the things you need for your big day and then divide the tasks into months and then into weeks, then into days. It will help you with pre-wedding stress.
Tip #4: Hire a planner
If you have multiple events and a lot of moving parts for your wedding, hire a wedding planner who can help you during the month of your wedding! Wedding planners are experienced to help you have a smooth wedding, especially when family, relatives, and friends will have so many opinions of what should and shouldn’t be done. A wedding planner will help you keep everyone in check and also help you calm your nerves.
Tip #5: Don’t stress
Don’t let the expectations of needing everything to be perfect cause you stress and anxiety before your big day. Similarly, keep in mind that it doesn’t help to stress over things you cannot control. Things like the weather and people’s opinions are something you cannot change. What you can do is remember to have fun on your wedding day! Things may not always go right, but make the most of it!
