Who doesn’t like attending weddings? It involves a lot of amazing food, dressing up, meeting family and friends and the general feeling of everlasting love in the air. Statistics prove that a wedding is as good a place as any to find love. However, when it comes to planning a wedding, it is a whole different story. This is especially true when you have not more than a month to plan all the big as well as the nitty-gritty details.
If you’re in a fix similar to this, fear not, here’s how you can plan a wedding in 4 weeks without losing your mind.
- Decide the kind of wedding you want-
While it is a herculean task to put together a big, fat Indian wedding in a month’s time, nothing is impossible. But before everything else, you need to ask yourself and your groom-to-be on the kind of wedding you want. Do you want it to be only family and friends or a grand affair? Do you have a string of functions in mind or just the reception? Once you know exactly what you want, you can start getting into the details.
Do you have a string of functions in mind or just the reception?
- The venue and other such things-
When you know the number of people you’ll be inviting to your wedding, you can start hunting for a location that will fit your budget and your guests comfortably. However, most venues may be booked especially if you’re getting married in the wedding season. If you find yourself in a similar situation, you can opt for an off-beat location like an exotic restaurant or you can have a beach wedding!
Once done, start moving to other crucial details like hiring a photographer and getting the save-the-date cards made. Since time is a constraint and e-cards are the trend of the hour, you can pass up on going house-to-house to distribute wedding cards.
- The wedding trousseau-
Now let’s talk about what matters most – the bridal wear! It’s going to be the most important day of your life and you want to wear the most beautiful dress ever. You need to start looking immediately. Getting a designer on-board who will require at least 2-3 trial sessions is not a very viable option. There are several boutiques with ready bridal-wear that only require minor alterations. They not only offer a wide variety but also have varied price ranges which will ensure you don’t go overboard with your budget.
Planning a whirlwind wedding can be stressful but the end result can be supremely rewarding. So put on your planning hat and have a ball!
