A wedding can be overwhelming and for most of us it is the first time! There are so many questions to answer! what to do, what not to do, how to behave and how to put up a good show.
Through the chaos however, do not forget the basic do’s and don’ts; we are here to take you through it!
- Choose the venue carefully
Consider the weather conditions, the time of the day, the kind of people you have invited. Make sure the place is not too crammed for kids or too big for the old. Also, avoid picking a place that is too far from city center as reaching there could be inconvenient to a majority of people.
- Cut songs short for performances
We know its your wedding and everybody is extremely happy for you. But they are your guests so why not care a little about their happiness too? You should definitely do your first couple dance and close cousins and friends will like to throw in performances too. But it is always advisable to keep the performance songs short and sweet. Keep it as long as it makes everyone go aww; stop before it becomes ughh!
- Be Empathetic
It is a wedding that includes two people and wherever there are two people, there will be disagreements. Add in the family and you have a multiplication of opinions. You might want everything non-veg while your other half may not be comfortable with the idea. Decoration, choice of music, exchange of gifts … the list goes on for possible disagreements. Be empathetic and find a common ground!
- Shorter wedding reception
People have attended every single day of your wedding spread over a number of days. On the wedding day itself, you could possibly just keep the event a little shorter for the convenience of all. It is actually even better to just have close family and friends who actually want to be there and not come for the sake of it.
- Enjoy yourself!
The most important of it all … everyone will enjoy if you do 😊
Last minute nerves are completely normal before the wedding and anxiety reigns the wedding preparations. But a full blown panic attack is not how anyone would want to begin the wedding celebrations. Its always important to keep reminding oneself that the wedding is a celebration of love and the beginning of a beautiful new life. Positivity and patience are your best friends during this time.
- Take decisions without your partner
If you go alone you go faster. If you go together you go further. In a marriage anyone would want to go furthest possible. And whilst it is easier to have everything done your way do not step over your partner’s wishes. A wedding is as much your day as it is your partner’s and it needs to reflect both you and your partner. Its a great way of establishing rock-solid communication as you and your partner are both involved and satisfied at every step and the wedding is a culmination of great bond that you and your partner share.
- Spend too much on food
While your wedding day is of utmost importance to you and signifies a myriad of beautiful emotions and lifelong memories, don’t end up spending a fortune on the food menu. It is very tempting to consider a 18 dish main menu for name sakes but in reality most people will not eat more than two or three food items. Save this money as it can be used more wisely elsewhere.
- Make the wedding the center of your life
This is perhaps the hardest but equally important. Weddings can turn into a dangerous obsession and even a small mishap could get blown out of proportion as so many emotions are involved. While weddings are certainly a milestone in a person’s life, letting it take over one’s life is a bad idea. Its a celebration that should be enjoyed and not stressed over.
- Skip the honeymoon!
Weddings can be extravagantly expensive, and one should never sacrifice the honeymoon due to wedding expenses. A honeymoon is as important as the wedding. While the wedding is a grand celebration with tons of people, a honeymoon is the intimate entrance to marriage that proves to be an even better memory than the wedding. You know it’s the best part of a wedding!
