The main goal behind opting for the above is primarily to create a wow and magical factor for not only the couple but also for friends and relations. We all agree that it is very difficult to keep the Budget under control and many couples even end up taking loans or financial support from their parents or end up spending all their savings. But the reality is that you should never start your life together on a financial mess.

Moreover, Indian weddings come with their own challenges, Say for instance families might want to focus on the religious aspects and in such situations, it would become difficult to convince the parents. But we all know that Indian weddings are a fun affair where two families come together and the same should not be forgotten in our focus to reduce the costs. The best way is to strike a compromise and we at wedding planners are here to help you do the same.

  • Try to host your Pre-wedding ceremonies and religious Pooja and parties at home by inviting only your closest friends and relatives.
  • Try to purchase all the wedding paraphernalia and other wedding items as per your taste and style. This will help in reducing the costs to a great extent.
  • Don’t go overboard with flowers. If possible, negotiate with the Venue authorities to include in the cost of the hall. If not then, locate a florist who can help you out with a decent floral arrangement at a reasonable cost.
  • Choose a weekday to get married as some Venues end up charging extra for a weekend wedding. Even the choice of the season makes a big difference as summer is the peak wedding season.
  • Try to save on caterers by booking a good caterer well in advance. Indian wedding is all about food. Hence the food has to be elaborate but you can definitely save on the alcohol cost by limiting the service of the same.
  • Try to opt for nondesigner wear as they too are equally good and come quite cheap
  • Try to create a wedding website instead of sending invitations. This not only helps save costs but you can also include all the details such as maps, directions, transport including accommodation on the website.
