Wedding budget includes food, flowers, entertainment, rental fees, shopping and other similar expenses. It’s important that we manage the entire cost for the wedding carefully that it comes under your budget. And, here are some suggestions for you about planning your wedding.

Wedding venue 

One of the biggest spending in Indian Wedding is made on the selection of the wedding venue. Choose a perfect venue and pre-book it 8-9 months before the wedding date to reduce your venue cost.  

Wedding shopping 

Choosing wedding outfits within the budget is the biggest task. Wedding outfits make the bride and groom look gorgeous on their big day. Wedding accessories shopping consist of purchasing Bridal accessories, bridal shoes, jewellery (Thali, Rings etc.) and purchasing Groom accessories, shoes, watch etc. Bride and groom outfits are bought 2 months before the day of the wedding. The wedding outfits itself is a major expense and they are only worn once. If you want to reduce expense on the wedding outfit you can choose rental outfits.

Wedding Centerpieces

Wedding centrepiece is the most important thing which makes the venue look magnificent and beautiful. Drapes and canopies give the wedding venue that clean, grand look and make up the quintessential auspicious background for the ceremony. Flowers is one such important decoration feature on a wedding day and they never fail to lift up the spirits on a special day. The flowers incorporated into the decorations largely depend on the budget of the wedding. Lighting is another important aspect of wedding centrepieces and it adds a touch of magnificence to the venue. Make sure that you reserve a wedding decorator/ florist 3 – 4 months prior. 

Wedding car decoration

Every bride or groom wants to make an entry with class and ride into the sunset with their partner in style on their wedding evening. Whether it may be rental car or own car, everyone wishes to take life partner home in a beautifully decorated car on the wedding evening. For decorating a car, use seasonal flowers which will reduce flowers cost. You can decorate the car with flowers individually all over the car or in bunches like bouquets, and place it on the hood. Don’t forget to reserve your rental car (optional) and floral decorators before 1-2 months before the wedding.
