Dos and don’ts for guests at a wedding party

Dos and don'ts for wedding partyWeddings are all the rage this season. From themed parties to bollywood celebrities to cocktails and bars, each and every wedding is unique on its own. You must be getting invited to lots of weddings. Then you must have heard about Weddi-quette. No? Well these are wedding etiquettes everybody should follow, be you a guest or bride or groom.  These rules will help everyone to make a wedding successful without ending up in a disaster or a total fiasco. The wedding is most important day in a brides and grooms life. Let’s make it even more special.

Following are some Dos and Don’ts to follow at a wedding party so that you are an ideal guest. Follow them all to make it a success.

Do’s you shouldn’t miss:

1. RSVP as soon as humanly possible: within a couple of weeks of receiving invitation at the latest. These are good manners and give the host an idea about how many guests are gathering to make appropriate arrangements. It also helps in determining the wedding cost. Check the invitation carefully to know how many people are invited. If it says two, then take only two. Otherwise it will create difficulty for the host.

2. If you are invited for the main ceremony then do not show up just on reception. Also be on time and not disturb the proceedings by being late.

3. A wedding gives you golden opportunity to dress up yourself to your heart’s content. Style as the occasion demands. You would not want to look an odd duck. If the theme is western then go for formal gown, if Punjabi then salwaar kameez and so on. If you’re unsure of the dress code, ask someone familiar with the wedding.

4. Even if you are not attending, you should give wedding gift to the newlyweds. After all they took the pains to invite you. Thank them for invitation. The wedding gift should be something which costs somewhere near the cost per head being born by the host. Etiquette dictates that if you were invited, you owe the newlyweds a gift. You may even loose long term friendship over this.

5. Sit at the assigned table: If there is some kind of seating arrangement made by the hosts, then don’t mess it up. They went to a lot of trouble to know the relations and set up the arrangement. Don’t mess it up and cause discomfort to the host. As it is, the host has enough pressure to handle, don’t add to it.

6. Congratulate the family: Even if you know the couples and have congratulated them already, do seek out their families and wish them joy and happiness. It’s what etiquette demands. Also you will be able to form new relations.

Don’ts you should follow:

1. If you weren’t invited with a guest, don’t show up with one. Don’t bring uninvited guest. They might ruin the party. And don’t ask the bride or groom if you can bring one. Because this will be an awkward situation and they will not be able to say no to you. Be thoughtful and add to the party environment by keeping out disturbing elements.

2. Yes, the “no bringing uninvited guests” rule includes your kids. The main centres of attraction are the bride and groom not your kid. They will only disturb you and move your attention away from the couple. You may not be able to enjoy the party to its fullest and then your mood will certainly be off. So keep your kids with baby sitters and enjoy the party with your friends and family.

3. Don’t dress to compete: You would not want to take away the attention from the bride and groom, would you? It’s not a fashion show or your school prom, it’s a wedding. Dress appropriately but don’t overdo. The bride and groom have every right to look their best among all the party attendees.

4. Don’t be disrespectful of the couple’s religious or cultural traditions. If you are attending party of someone who follow different tradition and religion than that of you don’t be disrespectful to their culture. Follow along with the rituals and even participate in them. It’s expected from you.

5. No to cell phone: You are here to attend a wedding, not in a hat room. The wedding offers you chance to socialize and renew your relations. Don’t waste this chance by concentrating only on virtual life of cell phone and not on real people around you. And random calls will disturb the rituals going on. There is life beyond your cell phone, enjoy it.

6. Don’t get wasted: If there is bar setup at the wedding does not mean you are at a pub where you are getting free drinks thereby giving you opportunity to indulge to your heart’s content. A Big No to getting drunk. This will not only embarrass the guest present but you could be making a spectacle of yourself. Your friends may not like you afterwards. Take a drink or two and retain your senses.

7 Tips for a Low Budget Indian Wedding

low budget Indian wedding tips

It is normal to get carried away by emotions and shop extravagantly during wedding. However, it takes some amount of creativity to be able to cut down the unwanted cost without sacrificing on the quality. The first step into achieving this is to sit and discuss. Discuss with your fiancé and your respective families and come up with the most and mandatory items for the wedding. Once you have this list you can easily narrow down your expenses on other no so important stuffs.

Today, we have come up with a few ideas to help you save those extra bucks in your wedding. Read on for the full proof Wedding tips:

1. Wedding Date: In India, the peak wedding season falls between April and September. Therefore, pick a date between November and March. This will cut down your cost by at least 20%. This way more venues will be available and you will get a personal concern from the vendors.

2. Limit alcohol consumption: Alcohol consumes a huge amount of your budget. Offer limited amount of alcohol to your guest. This will help you cut off the cost further. It is okay if you do not serve alcohol during Sangeet/Garba. If you are from Gujarat, alcohol and raas sticks won’t be the appropriate combination you are probably looking for at your wedding. Go for cheaper alternatives like Lassi. And for the cocktail hour, go for signature drink and some selected wines and beers.

3. Lighting: If you are not being able to fit your budget for wall LED lighting, it is okay. Limit the lighting to either the reception stage or to the entire wall. There is no harm in it. LED lights are charged per piece and plus you have the technician cost. So, if you have center stage lighting alone, your guests will be awe struck as their attention is drawn and also you will be able to cut down on the cost.

4. Linens: If you love linens but do not have the sufficient budget, here is what you can do. Simply use the white/beige table linen you will get from the venue and rent the chair covers. Now, get a chair sash/bow to match the main color on your centerpiece. Chair covers normally give the ballroom a richer feel and bring the required vibrancy. If you are not a big fan of chair covers, you also have the option of renting chivari chairs. But, here is the catch chivari chairs look opulent but are significantly expensive at the same time.

5. Centerpieces: Majority of the brides are inclined towards purchasing centerpieces from their decorators which usually range from $80 to $100/piece. However, you can significantly cut down the cost by being a little creative and thinking outside the box. Visit discount stores or order in bulk from India. They are much cheaper in the country. Plus, there is no compulsion to have extravagant flower arrangements to show elegance.

6. Cake: Cakes also consume a significant amount of your budget. Yes, four tier cakes look magnificent and so does the cost. But, if you are a huge fan for those four tier cakes, search for bakeries that give you the option of installing as many fake tiers as you choose for a minimum per tier charge. This way you can easily save a lot and at the same time get the look on the cake you always wanted.

7. Flowers: You can reuse the flowers from the wedding at your reception. If you have a different light and ambiance setting, they will look totally different. Add extra flower petals and tea lights to the cocktail tables. It will look elegant with no extra cost.

The Big Fat Indian Wedding Market

Wedding is the most grand and auspicious ceremony for every Indian. A typical Indian wedding lasts for almost a week with preparations starting from almost a year back. For Hindus, wedding is a sacred affair and can be solemnized only in the presence of a priest. Well they say, marriages and made in heaven, but you have to pay its bill here on earth (LOLs).

It is estimated that an average of 1crore (10 million) weddings happen every year. The kind of wedding party people thrown in India reflects the wealth, family status and pride of the family. When I came across the annual wedding budget of Indians, I went literally numb. The Indian wedding market size worth Rs 19,0000 crore (1.9 Trillion) , which will be higher than the annual budget of small African countries. I am not exaggerating; this is the actual round up figure. However, the market is seen to be growing at a constant pace of 20-30% per year. It is estimated that with the expansion of middle income class and the improved per capita income, the figure will be multiplied. On an average an Indian family will spend around Rs 10 lakhs (1 million) to Rs 70 lakhs or more (7million or more) per wedding. Wedding loans and Wedding Insurance are also available in the market today.

Indian Wedding Market

There is a great potential for growth if you plan on investing in the Indian wedding market. On a close analysis of the cash flow in every segment of the marriage market, the same is found to be pretty much impressive and lucrative. In the past the market was unorganized and players were local vendors who followed traditional methods. But, today we have capitalized this organized sector. The marriage market consists of the following segments:

  • Textile sector
  • Jewelers
  • Matrimonial websites / Wedding brokers
  • Hospitality sector
  • Printing and Stationary
  • Bridal make over
  • Photography/Video
  • Decorations
  • Catering
  • Transportation
  • Event management etc

There are again multiple sub sectors of which most of them are not accessible because of the brand image of competitors and high capital intensiveness.

If newcomers, you can opt for:

a) Floral Designs: You can start a small business as a good floral designer without much investment in innovative theme based wedding and style.

b) Decorations: You can always start an organized decoration firm with the perfect designs available online.

c) Wedding cards: Collaborate with the printing industry and develop design oriented cards at a minimal cost and start your business as a wedding card developer.

d) Catering: If you are interested in the food industry, catering business will be ideal too.

e) Event management: With a good connection with good organizers you can run an event management firm.

f) Honeymoon packages: Another good idea will be to start an enterprise with theme wedding and honeymoon packages added to it. Be an entrepreneur and organized memorable tours.

g) Bridal make over: If you love the beauty market, enter the field by providing free tips and quality services.

How To Plan A Wedding India In Only Five Weeks (Without Going Insane)

Life is full of adventure and marriage is totally a rollercoaster ride. You go topsy-turvy on the other end. Just imagine if your wedding day is only five weeks away and you have not prepared anything yet. I am sure you will go wild. But hang on! You need not panic. I am here at your rescue. We can totally make up for all the times you were at your office busy working when you should have been out in the market shopping and preparing for the wedding.

Plan A Wedding India

You can still have your dream wedding with five weeks at hand. Here is the foolproof plan to make your wedding a hit without going insane.

Get your plan straight: Keep a clear head and be honest with yourself. What is it that you exactly want? What kind of wedding preparation you need for your dream wedding. Do not get stuck with unnecessary obsessions. Which service do you have to book? The caterers, the wedding venue, wedding photographer, your makeup artist etc. Ask your friends for suggestion and take quick test and book them instantly.

Prepare yourself for the upcoming disaster: You cannot expect to have a perfectly planned wedding where nothing will go wrong. Planning a wedding has been bittersweet. At this time you will know who your friends are and how good and supportive are your relatives. Some people will try to make your wedding all about what they want. Others will be inconsiderate or downright rude. This is heavy stuff to deal with when you’re already busy planning a wedding. If you have good friends, consider yourself lucky.

Prepare yourself for the weird wedding advices: It will be right before your wedding when people’s weird personal issues with marriage, commitment and intimacy are going to come out of nowhere. They have this strange need to talk about marriage from their own intimacy/commitment issues. You are no them. Your issues will be different and so do not panic. Simple Smile and nod honey, Smile and nod!

Decide on what is really important to you: Take a note on the things you do not mind compromising on and thing that you in no world compromise for.  You can let go of things that is not very important or irrational. For, example, it is very important to have a shed if you plan on an open wedding is case it rains but it is okay if you do not spend a lot on the wedding invitation card. Focus on a few small things that will really make you happy to make the event a successful one and to cherish for a lifetime.

Do not be over ambitious: Look at the time at hand. You cannot go around asking people to do more they actually can. You may have friends staying far away. Inform an invite them first as they will take time to reach. Learn to compromise on what is impossible to get within such a short notice. Do not pine over.

It is ok to have minor bridal freak outs: You must been in a lot of stress during this five week and at time you may mess up a bit. It is okay. You need not cry over the split milk. A little amount of clumsiness will not be considered unhealthy. It won’t be the end of the world for you.

Give your overbearing relatives some project to work on: If you have those overbearing relatives whom you cannot stand but need to invite, stuck them with some work so that they stay out of your business. When one of your relatives starts driving you crazy with their own running commentary and criticism about your wedding-related choices hand them something less important to do. That way, those people will have their own little nuptial fiefdom to control and you will get some time to breathe.

Use Pinterest boards and Google Drive: Pinterest boards are an amazing resource for bridal beauty ideas and recipes for the wedding celebration. You can store the list in Google Drive so that you do not was time in finding one in case it gets lost. I understand it must seem to be a hefty burden, but trust me, you can do it. Do not lose your cool.

Graciously accept help if anyone offers you any: You are very lucky if you have a helpful family (which is most in case of India). Allot different responsibilities for different people. Ask them what they are good at and divide and work. They people love you and want to help you. So say “thank you” and accept it modestly. You do not have time to throw tantrums not.

All the best with your preparation!

I did not mean that you need to buy whatever he says, but at least consider his opinion as well. This will make him more interested in lending you a hand in shopping.

9. Sound like a cost controller: It does give heart attacks to pay the bills no matter how rich your partner is. I am sure he must have skipped a few heartbeats merely by listening to the wedding planning. Know how to manipulate the truth.

10. TRICK him: Trick your guy to speak his heart out and use it as a shield against him. Like each lock has its own key, you will have to find out what will make your man speak. Well, a known devil is better than an unknown angel!

If you use the above tricks smartly – one at a time, I am sure he will be accompanying you in most of your shopping sprees. Whatever less is left to you, can be done with your father/mother/mother-in-law/brother/sister. Spare the poor soul completely on those days. Happy Shopping!!
