  1. Always research! research research research! that is the golden word.
  2. Select a theme; beach, castle, mountains.. etc
  3. Set a budget - this helps you plan better!
  4. Get a head count - this helps you to plan the wedding venue and ofcourse budget. For all you know most of  your family on both sides are yearning for time away from home.
  5. Early bird gets the best venue - so plan well ahead and get a great deal on the venue, rooms. Most resorts or hotels allow the happy couple to reserve blocks of rooms at a discounted rate for guests, so be sure to request plenty, and keep tabs on how fast they're filling up.
  6. If you are travling abroad - you need to plan well ahead for air tickets, passports, vacation time off  are just a few of the considerations that have to be handled well in advance of the big day.
  7. Do a weather check - A romantic sunset ceremony on the sandy beaches of an exotic Caribbean island can quickly turn sour when a hurricane.
  8. The Marriage Law - If you are getting married in a foregin country, be sure to check their marriage laws and abide by it. Be sure to check the requirements, have all your documents handy
  9. Choose trustworthy vendors - That way you know your money is in safe hands. Most resorts offer wedding packages, and they cater to all kinds of budgets.
  10. Use a Consultant - A qualified, reputable destination wedding consultant can take care of many of the small but significant details we've already mentioned. They simply have the resources and experience to get the job done faster, easier and with more assurance than the average bride.

How to have a dream wedding?

The answer is simple Dream ! Thats true you need to dream of the perfect wedding to make it real.
Have a vision, then make it real. If you are having a wedding planner then let them know what you want. The key here is YOU, its very important for you to love the wedding planning.

If you want to plan your own wedding, thats amazing too. For you know you are going to give it a 200%  to make your wedding as wonderful as possible. But there are some cardinal rules that you need to follow when you are planning a wedding, whether you have a wedding planner or not.  Here are my two cents:

  1. Follow your heart; listen to your heart, you will find a theme. 
  2. Write it down; always pen your thoughts down, theres a good chance you will forget!
  3. Then sketch (if you can) how grand or simple you want it to be. You can also cut and paste a couple of pictures on a drawing board to create a theme.

  4. Select the colour combinations for your venue; you dont want it to be too jarring or too subtle.
  5. Select the outfit color and work the the colou around it. The colours need not match exactly, different shades would be perfect!
  6. Work on the invitations, the colour, the look, the presentations
  7. Work on center table decorations keeping the theme in mind
  8. The flowers form an integral part of any weddings, right from the garland you are wearing to the mandap and other decorations, stick to the theme, keep it elegant.
  9. The Food; the most important part of any wedding, remember to pick the menu in sync with your style.
  10. Keep the lighting subtle, some people tend to do dark lightings, that will give you a feeling that you are in a pub, avoid that. Keep it nice and bright!
  11. Picture perfect; Always invest in a good photographer, its worth it. Oh yeah and do not forget the engagement shoot!
  12. Most important nothing is too simple or too grand. Acheive the look that you want.

For all those who want the perfect wedding, here are some amazing ideas:

For someone who loves to read and write about weddings, BBB was a treat! How many times have you come across the lead actors planning slick weddings from Janakpuri to Sainik Farms. There has not been a lot of movies with wedding planners in it, has it? The last I saw was Monsoon wedding, the decor was delightful and simple.

Coming back to BBB, the movie showcases the Delhi wedding style to a T (I think). From modest and swank. The lead actors as wedding planners were awesome. Running from pillar to post to get things done and coping up with the famalies demand. And most of all creating the most magical themed weddings!

Theme weddings - Cherry Blossom Wedding

Each spring, people from all over the globe travel to Washington, DC for the National Cherry Blossom Festival (an event that celebrates springtime in Washington, DC as well as the 1912 gift of the cherry blossom trees and the enduring friendship between the people of the United States and Japan).

 What is it about the overabundance of sweeping branches of delicate cherry blossoms that draws such a crowd?   Perhaps, as spectators are surrounded by billowing branches of cherry blossoms overhead and delicate petals scattered underfoot, they’re reminded of what cherry blossoms symbolize:  virtue and new beginnings.

Last Spring, I saw a couple getting married during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, and I have shared with you some of the pictures.  

 What better way to celebrate the beginning of your lives together than with a Cherry Blossom Wedding Theme?  Intersperse these delicate blooms throughout your wedding decorations and save your guests the trip to DC.

If you are in the DC area and planning a wedding on a budget, this would be a great opportunity to have a themed 

You can create a invitations, cake, favors and menu to match the theme, I have attached a board below for your review:
