“What kind of a wedding do you want?”
“The one with a groom.” – said Jude Deveraux who is well known for her historical romances.
Unfortunately in today’s times, a wedding encompasses more than just a groom. It is a blend of families, friends, responsibilities, decisions and some major decisions. Yours will be such! As soon as most couples get engaged they tend to feel like the helpless employee of a call centre – the ones who get bombarded with every question they never seem to have the answer for. Who, when, what, where and why seems to be the start to every conversation regarding the wedding and at times like these, the only way to have an answer is by creating a list. Yes! A to-do list. Just when you thought these lists only existed in school or at the workplace, you’ll be surprised. These lists will stay with you till THE DAY and perhaps later (for memories of course).
Work within a framework
Once he pops the question, a good idea would be a systematic approach to planning the wedding. The two questions that you have to ask yourselves before you start prepping up are: Will it be a small, intimate wedding or a big, copious one? Secondly, will it be a Local one or a Destination one? Once you have these questions answered, you give yourself a framework to work within.
Create a budget
Like with every other event you may have organized before, the most important factor is setting a realistic budget and getting the most of that budget. Nobody wants to “settle in” for something they aren’t completely satisfied with – not at least on this day that comes ‘once in a lifetime’ (for the most of us).
Up until this point your enthusiasm levels will probably be high and you will to take on everything yourself will soar. This is partially due to the fact that you are visualizing fine drapes, enchanting music and your partner exuding love and romance. But, when you realize everything comes at a cost and a cost you are not sure of or don’t know how much to negotiate for, you’ll realize the need for assistance. Opt for a wedding planner to help you streamline your thoughts.
Opt for a specialized and experienced team
Professional wedding planners not only assist you with making the right decisions but they also help you see different aspects of the wedding you may have not accounted for. Think about your wedding set in the backdrop of a beautiful Mughal theme, you and your partner in all your fineries, traditional entertainment for guests and then throw in your regular photographer (who perhaps charged a little less than the one recommended by the planner) who hasn’t styled the shots right. Years later do you want to open a wedding album that doesn’t make you relive the memories? Thus we stress the importance of specialized wedding companies who look at every part of the process to give you a beautiful complete picture.
We assure you, by choosing not just any wedding planner but the best wedding planner in your city, your role remains the same. You stay in control of the big day while your wish is their command. The master plan or what we call the checklist stays with you thus giving you an entire idea of the tasks involved, who is responsible for them and by when it will be achieved and you in turn enjoy the benefits of the stress being taken off you for a swap of spare time to actively participate in the fun and frolic of the festivities.
