You have envisioned your wedding for years. You want to be able to handle every detail and take on all the responsibility. Before you get into the details, there are some wedding planning tricks that can help you save both time and money. You don’t want to waste another chance on wedding planning. So do it right the first time!
People won’t remember your dress but they will remember the food and the experience. Other things, such as your shoes and accessories, or invitation cards, could be forgotten. The guests will not say “Hey!” Although I didn’t like the invitations you sent, they will most likely say “Man!” It was the best food and the most entertaining music I have ever heard. If there’s one area that you should spend more on, it’s the food and entertainment. These things will save you a lot of time, money, and hassle when planning your wedding.
For your big day, find the best caterers and entertainment!
Online design of your cards
The invitation cards are not something you should spend a lot on. Even the most expensive ones will end up in the garbage. You can create your own invitations online and have them printed at home or in a nearby store on non-fancy paper. You can even save money and paper! Send e-invitations.
Use a portal for weddings
Wedding portals such as ours can help you locate vendors and suppliers from the comfort of your own home. You can view reviews and ratings about specific suppliers, and then call them to discuss packages that fit your budget. Imagine how much time and effort you will be able to save by using a single-stop shop for all your planning needs.
Get a discount on your dress
A wedding Lehenga/Sari can cost hundreds of thousands of Rupees. There are ways to save on them though; remember, you might not wear the heavier dresses/Saris ever again so you could always go for the inexpensive varieties or even wear your mother/mother-in-law’s lehenga/sari. Sites like OLX and Quikr allow you to contact sellers who are looking to sell gently used wedding gowns. Websites such as OurVivaha.com offer rental options for Indian brides.
You can save on flowers, decorations and venue
Negotiate with the venue manager to suggest simple decorations such as string lights or candles. This will help keep costs down. To cut down on transportation costs, choose a wedding mandap/ banquet hall/ hotel near our home. These are just some of the ways you can save time and money when planning your wedding. You can save even more on your wedding photographer by doing some research. (No, we don’t recommend that you ask a cousin or friend to take the photos. ), transport (Do you really need a Mercedes Benz for your getaway car?) ), the guest list (Does your uncle really need to invite his cousin’s cousin on her maternal side? ).
