Wedding planning is not easy, but wedding planners still seem to be luxury to a lot of people. Well, nothing can be far from reality. Hiring wedding planners may seem like an added cost but in reality it will not burn a hole in your pockets. Wedding planners put long hours of meticulous planning and detailing to bring your wedding to life on the D-day. They do all the running around, so you and your family can relax and concentrate on actually enjoying your wedding functions! They listen to all your tantrums, take a look at all your thousand something screenshots all while trying to create the perfect setting – even if that means making some thousand calls and endless production samplings !

Below are some major mistakes couples make while planning their wedding!


Negotiating Business

We do our best during the process of planning your wedding and during the execution. A lot of teamwork and actual labour goes into making dreams into reality. We often see families asking us to negotiate the cost, for if the events are executed well, we will get lot of work from the wedding guests! It is true for every vendor in the business and also the hardest thing to discuss.

Deals and Discounts

A lot of couples often hire wedding planners after they have fixed their venues and have discussed food and other terms with the hotel or resort. What they don’t know is that a  wedding planner can cut sweet deals with hotels at the time of booking. So hire a  wedding planner before hand – so we can bring in deals –  like discounts at the salon for their guests, free ironing of up to 4 clothes per room per day,free WiFi, Flute or Shehnai player and lot more depending on your wedding destination!

Trust our instincts and skill set, Please!

Pinterest is good and rather helpful to understand your (the bride’s!) brief. But beyond that it rather becomes a nuisance. This being true for ever wedding designer and planner in the industry. The couple should totally trust our instincts and skill set. Planning a wedding and décor can take from 4 to 6 months! We first understand your ideas and brief and according to the venue, the spatial requirements, the seating layout and many other factors we present a layout to you. It then comes to convincing the entire family (not only the couple) and to make sure the D-day looks as per what we have imagined!

Enjoy the Wedding!

Once you have a designer and Planner on board, do not stress over the smaller details! Don’t forget to enjoy each function, meet with as many guests and click as many pictures as possible.

Less is More

Details matter, they go a long way. Once an idea has been finalised, don’t add things just for the sake of it. Again, trusting the Planner is crucial, too many cooks spoil the broth, as they say! Also,go easy on the menu(especially true for destination weddings), the performers. Most importantly, allow the families to bond. The photographs turn out better this way.

5 Wedding Budget Myths busted!

Wedding Budget Myths

When it comes to budget weddings, it gets really hard to keep everything within the stipulated budget. We are here to bust some myths around weddings and budget!

Destination Weddings are expensive, and cannot be done on a budget.

Yes, destination weddings do cost money, but there are various ways to cut costs and make smart decisions.The couples need to prioritize, plan better and not give into any pressures. It’s  a general myth that wedding planners are expensive, yes you do have to pay a fixed fees to the planner, but the planner brings on board various concessions, deals and money saving ideas, that it eventually becomes a very smart investment.

  1. Intimate destination weddings will almost always save you money

    Not always. Destination weddings come with a fixed cost of frequent site visits, airfares, hotel stays. Intimate wedding also comes with an added pressure to indulge in that extra pampering for the guests.

  2. Backyard functions are cheaper.

    It does cut costs of renting out a venue but other costs most likelyremain the same -the tenting, lighting, tables, chairs and the linen. Backyard functions also bring the added hassle of constant hustle  and bustle in the house. Wedding venues tend to offer sweet deals on sound , food, guest hospitality and lots other arenas that require help during the functions. It’s always a good idea to have a solid support system to execute the wedding.

  3. You can DIY the decor to save costs.

    For smaller events like – Mehendi and Haldi it could be possible. But for the wedding and other formal functions it will be an insane amount of work with the added pressure of communicating with so many vendors, which could have been easily avoided.

  4. You can’t hire a wedding planner for a budget project

    This is not true for mid-range and destination weddings. This can’t be stressed enough, wedding planners generally charge as per the services chosen by the client. The planner brings on the table the experience, their relationships with various vendors in the wedding industry and several deals for you, which might end up saving lots of moolah!
