The clock is ticking and the day you’ve been dreaming about since you were a little girl gets closer every second. Therefore, it’s time to get serious about planning your big day.
Before you start this wild and pressure filled journey of planning a South Asian wedding, watch out for these potential pitfalls along the way. You can thank me later.
1. Don’t Expect a Silky Smooth Ride
If you’re expecting the planning process to have no hiccups then I hate to bust your bubble. While wedding planning doesn’t have to be stressful, it’s not exactly silky smooth either.
There will likely be some disagreements, compromises, delays, and unexpected twists.
These small hiccups won’t kill the fun as long as you’re mentally prepared and don’t dwell over them.
2. Don’t Alienate Your Future Husband
While the wedding festivities are usually a much bigger deal for the bride than the groom, that doesn’t mean your fiancé should be excluded from the planning process.
Share your ideas with him and get his input.
3. Don’t Be a Slave Driver
Your family, friends, and various vendors are there to support you but don’t take that for granted. Being bossy is a sure fire way to lose genuine support.
You’ll be surprised how your supporting cast will go above and beyond when you play nice and show respect.
