W is for Wedding Planner

Most couples wish for their wedding to be memorable. Wouldn’t it be nice if weddings would be like how they show in the movies?

It would but they skip the most important part i.e. the planning that goes into creating the best wedding experience.

People who are married know the stress and tension that one gets during the wedding planning stages. If you can manage it then good for you! Those who don’t want that stress often look for wedding planners.

But wait, how can I get the best wedding planner in India?

Yes, I know there are tons of planners out there, and choosing one can be a difficult decision to make. Hence to make it easy, here’s a set of 5 questions that you can ponder upon.

Answering them will make it easy for you to make that decision and have that dream wedding!

1. Portfolio + Experience:

Like interviews, you can first check the portfolio and experience of the wedding planner. This helps you shortlist quite a few planners. You can also check the websites of these planners to shortlist. Like always, research is the key.

2. Location:

If the wedding planner knows the location of your ceremony/reception, then it gets better for you. As they have already worked here earlier, you can check their portfolio for this location and understand their style.

3. Vendors:

I recently heard from a wedding planner in Mumbai that most wedding planners have a set of vendors (caterers, music, flowers, etc) that they prefer to work with. Find out who these vendors are and research if they will be a good fit for your wedding.

4. Friendly + Patient:

If the planner you are discussing with isn’t easy to connect with and not friendly, there are high chances of having arguments and disagreements. Hence it’s safe to go ahead with planners who are friendly, and understand what you need without losing their patience.

5. Introspect:

Ask yourselves these questions:

  • Does the planner understand our vision?
  • Will they work as per our budget?
  • Are they okay with being recommended to other vendors or planner want his/her vendors only?
  • Did we connect well?

Top 4 Tips for writing heartfelt wedding vows

W is for wedding vows

In any catholic wedding, we have vows that the couple makes to each other. Some even go ahead and add them during the reception with their personalized set of vows that they proclaim in front of their audience.

If you wish to do the same, you can follow this step to step guide.

1. Who is he/she to you – You can start the vows by mentioning who your partner is to you. Are they your best friend, your partner in crime, or your practical guru who keeps you grounded?

This can be one of the best ways to start your wedding vows and also helps your audience know your partner better.

2. What do you love about your partner – Now this is where you can plan to tell a story, things that made you realize that your partner is “The One.”

The story can be short and you can list down a few instances that made you realize how you both are meant to be.

This makes your vows more intimate than ever.

3. What all are you promising? – Yes, you’re promising to live a life together but here’s where you can add romance and fun like, “I promise that as your wife, I will not keep score, even though I am totally winning”.

Yes, vows don’t need to just be plain old and boring. Make it fun, make it quirky, and romantic too. Poke fun but only till a certain limit as you don’t want to fight on the very first day of your married life.

4. Rough times and the future – Talking about good times is what everyone does. You can add a vow mentioning how you’ll stick together no matter how rough life gets.

It’s in these moments that this vow makes sense – In sickness and in health, for better or worse. You can then end your vows by making one last promise to love each other for eternity until death do us part!

What are my thoughts on wedding vows?

Wedding vows are very important. If you wish to make your ceremony an intimate affair, take time to plan your vows. You can then share them with your partner on the wedding day.

What do you think about wedding vows? Would you prefer creating your own vows?

wedding dresses

Here are the 5 best ways a couple can decide on wedding dresses

T is for Tuxedos and Trousseau

The wedding attire, aka wedding dresses for girls and suits/tuxedos/sherwanis for guys, is a pretty big deal okay!

But how can you choose the right attire for your special day? Now, this becomes tricky as you cannot just choose as per one factor. There are multiple factors you must check out.

Hence to make it easier, here are 5 amazing ways you can finalize your wedding attire.

1. Research:

Do your research wisely. Decide if you’re looking for a traditional or a trendy design. Yes, you might have stalked Pinterest for thousands of designs. But it’s better to do all the hard work as it’s your important day and you would want to remember it with the nicest memories, right?

2. Shop as per your current size:

Everyone wants the killer body to pull off special wedding dresses but you should shop as per your current size. Even if you lose weight later to get in your desired shape, you can get it altered accordingly. So, order bigger sizes rather than smaller ones.

3. Fix Budget for wedding dresses:

Fixing a budget for the wedding dresses is mandatory. You must allocate costs not just for the dresses but also for additional costs too. There might be a few ties, cufflinks, jewelry, shoes, etc that will look better on the new attire. Hence you’ll have to buy them too.

4. Shop it a few months early and not too early

Shopping for your wedding outfits a few months before the main event sounds good. But if you plan to do that a year earlier, there are high chances that by the time your wedding arrives, your dress might be out of style.

5. Shopping crew is important:

I finally believe that you need the best crew when it comes to wedding shopping whether it’s for boys or girls. Taking friends who will make the day fun is okay. But taking people who have a good sense of style, understand fabrics, and costing will help you very well. Hence choose your crew wisely.

What are my thoughts on choosing wedding dresses?

There’s a lot of effort that goes into choosing the perfect wedding dresses for men and girls. Hence it’s best if you can smartly allocate adequate time and money.

What do you think is the best way to decide on the wedding attire for the couple?
