Indian weddings are special and they are like no other. The richness of the Indian culture is in full display during a wedding. The final results are jaw dropping. Although the final results are amazing, working behind the scenes is such a huge hassle. You’ve probably already spent hours of your time on the internet looking up ideas and making plans. Take note that there are hundreds or even thousands of people attending an Indian wedding. The ceremony and celebrations can go on for days.
The first thing you have to arrange is the venue. This place will serve as the location for the entire ceremony. You want it to look great. The decorations should also be appropriate to the theme. Here are some tips for choosing the best venue for an Indian wedding.
Get a wedding planner
You can’t handle the details of your own wedding without help. You need someone who will plan the details for you. Find someone who has extensive experience handling Indian weddings. You might miss out some details and this person will help remind you what else needs to be done.
Determine the budget
You need to know how much you are willing to spend. Be careful not to splurge on just one aspect of the wedding considering that the wedding will go on for days. You should also consider where you will get the money from. Make sure you have emergency funds as well just in case something goes wrong. Venues are quite expensive and there could be different venues for different parts of the wedding. It also goes without saying that the number of guests should be finalised first, so you will know the size of the venue you need.
Check the availability of the place
If you already have a venue in mind, you need to finalise your reservation. Make sure that you decide quickly or else your chosen date might no longer be available. Be ready to compromise if you really like the place since there might have been other people interested in the same date.
Check the venue
There are Indian wedding venues that look good in photos but are totally different in reality. You need to visit the place and see how it looks. You should also bring your wedding planner with you so you can be on the same page especially with regards to the decorations. You should also check all basic amenities including water supply, accommodation options and parking service.
There are a lot of wonderful venues that could be perfect for your dream wedding. You just have to make a quick decision. Without the wedding venue, all other aspects of the wedding cannot be finalised. Planning everything well in advance will help avoid any hassles.
