Do you like this wedding invitation card design?

Couples have a lot on their plate and the wedding invitation card is one huge part of that plate. Jo Dikhta hai, wohi bikta hai! This one-liner defines a lot for us Indians.

Couples maintain a separate budget for invitation cards and I’ve known a few who spent a lot just on getting a whacky design for their invitations.

Sending general invitation cards:

Sending a plain invitation card would not give that feeling. The card must have some whacky or classy design. I’ve seen some creatively designed wedding invitation cards. And yes, it’s because of the unique design, I still remember the wedding to date.

Change arrives in the Digital era:

But with the digital era gaining popularity, couples who don’t have time to travel to distant places just choose to call and send the wedding invitation card via any messenger platforms – WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.

While many don’t mind being invited via a text, many prefer being personally invited. Sending an invitation via text or call can signify that you are not that important.

What are my thoughts on the wedding invitation card?

Spending a lot on invitation cards does not make sense to me. Inviting them via text or personally inviting is a decision the couple reserves to take. In the end, I believe it’s all about the way and manner in which you invite your guests.

Even if you invite them via a phone call and send them the card via text, let them know how you expect their grace and blessings on your important day.

I’d like to end this post by asking you guys,

What do you prefer? Being invited personally or via a phone call/text?

house hunting

House hunting – Before or After marriage?

Should we go house hunting before or after marriage?

Most couples will have this discussion a few months or at least a year before their wedding day. Owning a house that you can call your own is a strong feeling in us Indians.

There are various options a couple can explore and I will list them down for you with my take on it:

1. House hunting before marriage:

More and more couples are stepping out post-marriage to start a new life together. They prefer staying on their own and living their life. Hence if you are one such couple or plan to be, start planning on house hunting preferably a year before your wedding.

2. House hunting after marriage (Staying with parents):

It’s ideal for a couple in India to stay with their parents post-wedding. But there are high possibilities of friction between the in-laws and the new addition to the family. Hence, most prefer to branch out.

In such a scenario, you can start searching for a new house post-marriage and move out when you get a house you like.

3. House hunting after marriage (Staying on rent):

Another popular scenario picking up steam is couples who get married and live on rent for the time being. They then start searching for the right house. Once they find their perfect home, they apply for a joint home loan/buy it with their savings and shift to the new house.

What are my thoughts on House hunting?

Buying a house is not easy in a city like Mumbai and a country like India. Getting the right house will take tons of research. You might want a house near to a hospital/religious place/school/railway station/airport, etc.

To get that, you will have to scan areas, find realtors, get quotes from various houses, and even tour some of them to get a feel of the house. If you’re a working individual, then you can only get 2 days in a week.

Hence it’s best to start as early as possible. However, if you plan to live with your parents and have no space issues, then that’s the best-case scenario and will save you a lot of money!

What do you think about house hunting? Which option would you choose?

Why you must do something for the children during the Wedding Reception?

Will the children behave during the wedding?

Often parents are worried about bringing children to any wedding reception. It becomes a task to handle them and focus on the wedding event.

It’s also possible they might break some things that are part of the wedding background or stage decoration.

It’s not the kid’s fault. They have a spurt of energy and prefer running and playing around. Let’s face it. The wedding makes no sense to them. All they want is to play around with kids their age.

I’ve seen parents bringing children and more than half of the reception they end up taking care of the child, running behind them, or putting them to sleep. It’s quite a hassle.

What can a couple do for the juniors?

If you want the focus to stay on both of you, do something for the junior section. You can tweak your wedding background in a way that it can accommodate the children too. Here are 2 ideas:

1. Create a kids section:

Create an area where children can chill and parents can see them from a distance. Add a few toys in the mix and you’ll see them enjoy without disturbing any part of your reception.

2. Involve them in games:

Add spot games with prizes. Kids love winning prizes. Let them, participate. It will be a fun event for all, the kids will have fun and it gives your event some added brownie points as well.

What are my thoughts on children and the wedding background?

Over the years, I’ve seen a majority of children run around, eat confetti, run behind the smoke, cry, whine, and even pass out before the dance starts. This affects the parents who have to be on their toes and cannot enjoy your main event.

You can do something for the junior section so they get busy doing their thing and your guests can enjoy the wedding.
