Almost every Indian wedding is planned on a fixed budget, but only a few of them are successfully executed in that predicted budget. Most of them witness an exceeded splurge of around 20%, but it is important for you to realize that the process of wedding planning gets way easier when you abide by the budget. So, prioritize and divide the expenses wisely. Focus on the things that matter to you the most. For instance, if you don’t want to compromise on the decor, rent your wedding lehenga and jewellery to stick to the budget. Also, jot down all the possible expenses (including favors, giveaways, venues, catering, jewellery, gifts, etc.) and set a prospect budget for each of them.
Mindlessly scroll Pinterest and Instagram feeds, and finalize a mood board which will majorly showcase the color scheme that you want for your wedding. Set this mood board before heading out for shopping sprees. Doing so will narrow down the options and make your wedding shopping easier.
