Booking Essentials for Your Indian Wedding

If you, or a close friend or family member is planning to tie the knot in the near future, then congratulations are in order! Now the fun really begins – and although planning a wedding can be a mammoth operation, there’s no reason why you can’t have fun while doing it.

You’re probably aware that there are a lot of things to remember when putting your special day together. Most weddings take months to plan, while other people might spend years working on the specifics of their big day. As with any big task, it helps to make a list of everything you need to do first, establish which tasks need priority, and put them into an order – as long as you get the big important bits done first, the rest should come together fairly easily.

For those about to embark on planning their Asian wedding, here are some tips for you to consider:

Location Comes First

Before you arrange anything else, get your location sorted. This is the backdrop around which you will base everything else. There’s no sense in arranging your décor first, only to find that you didn’t get your first choice of venue – then having to send place settings and materials back to the shop! Find a place where you want your big day to happen, then build your wedding on these foundations.

Then Themes and Colours

Once your location is picked, you can choose a theme and colour scheme to match it. If your wedding is taking place in a minimalist setting, such as a beach, or inside a more modern building, then you’ll want to choose more dramatic colours for your dress code and furnishings. On the other hand, softer colours will complement a country manner or garden-based wedding.

Next: Caterers

Food is an important part of any wedding. Many caterers’ diaries become booked up well in advance, so plan ahead to avoid disappointment. The last thing Mum wants to be doing the night before her daughter’s special day is sweating over a hot stove!

And Don’t Forget Your Makeup Artist

You can probably guess that Asian bridal makeup isn’t something you can throw together at the last minute. To get the perfect finish takes meticulous care and attention. If you want to look your absolute best at your wedding, don’t chance it – book an MUA you can rely on.
