You want your wedding to be the stuff of dreams. But with everything you have to handle, it can get overwhelming and there can be hiccups. Here’s how to ensure everything goes to plan.
Logistics: While a faraway setting may seem just perfect, don’t forget to consider that you’ll need easy accessibility to your wedding venue. Pick a place that’s easy to make multiple trips to and also for your guests to reach. Of course, if you have a wedding planner handling all the nitty-gritty, you can afford to look for something more far flung.
The guest list: Spend some time getting this right. You have to stick to the total number of guests you want to invite and also ensure you don’t upset anyone close to you by leaving them out.
Clothes, jewellery, make-up: Ensure that you don’t leave anything for the last moment. There’s nothing worse that finding that your lehenga is too long on the eve of your ceremony. Do as many dress-fittings, trials and make-up rehearsals as required.
Catering: There’s no denying the importance of great food in the success of a wedding celebration. Once you’ve homed in on your caterer, make sure you sample all the dishes on the menu and make tweaks as necessary. You could have someone whose taste and judgement you trust, do this for you.
Drinks: Whether it’s a high-spirited Sangeet or a cocktail reception, plan ahead for the drinks you’ll be serving. Have an expert give you an estimate of how many bottles of, say, red wine you’ll need depending on the number of guests.
Systems: Lights, music, décor are all key elements of a great wedding. Have audio, sound systems, lighting etc checked to ensure everything is in perfect working condition and you don’t have any last-minute glitches.
Weather: Consider the season and the weather when planning your date and picking a venue. If you want an outdoor wedding, make sure it’s well out of the rainy season. Else, you will have to have some back-up plan.
Plan, plan, plan: Start the planning months ahead. And don’t leave anything to the last minute. That way you’ll have that dream wedding and enjoy your big day all the way.
