“The Ultimate Desi Wedding Check List” by Redah Misbah
Wedding season is coming! I am quite sure a lot of you pretty ladies out there, are planning a winter wedding too. As our bridal campaigns roar and we get bookings for bridal make up, I am doing a series of wedding prep blogs to get you started. Here is my ultimate wedding checklist:
The first step in wedding planning is establishing your budget, which guides your spending decisions on dresses, makeup, venue, and more. You’ll find that you can achieve great results on a limited budget, leaving room to splurge on your honeymoon.
Make finding your wedding dress a top priority. Brides who delay this decision often end up disappointed, so start your search early.
For a summer wedding during peak season, prioritize booking an indoor venue. For a winter wedding, consider the unique option of an outdoor venue.
Food is one of the most important part of any desi wedding, you know it, I know it, well pretty much everyone who has been to a desi wedding knows that the FOOD is essential. Even though we have many restrictions these days, you have to take care of your guests by taking care of the food.
This one is a major essential too, but considering most makeup artists take multiple brides in a day, you may get a chance to be thorough on this one. Don’t necessarily go with what is hip and happening these days; instead find someone unique who will take good care of you and your make up.
So I’ve noticed lately that a lot of people won’t go all out on their invite and instead are resorting e-invites or even just emails in order to invite guests to their weddings. Scratch that, make inviting your guests more personal and add to your memory box an eternal, tangible memory of your big day.
Never compromise on the guy who is going to store in time, your most memorably day. We know how expensive it is to book a photographer/coverage of weddings these days but then why shouldn’t it be?
These were just some of the most essential checklist points for desi weddings, I suggest you start a wedding book and make sure you take everything down. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and every woman deserves to enjoy it!
