Now that the wedding season is in full swing across all states of the country, there’s only one thing apart from the food (obviously) which is on the people’s minds – it’s officially partaaaay time!

India’s cultural heritage and beliefs makes it possible for weddings here, to be of a vast variety and exclusively innovative. With that fact aside, there is a definite reason for these occasions to be called “great” in the first place. Weddings are larger than life affairs that call for months of planning, coordination and tinkering. All of which can leave you overwhelmed!

Like always, we here at What’s Up Life have your back and have compiled a wedding dictionary – complete with everything you need to know about an Indian…oops, about a GREAT Indian wedding!

Take a look !

A – Ambience

While a recent survey has revealed that flashy décor works well for the sangeet while a classy & minimalistic ambience sets the tone for the reception or dinner.

B – Budget

Small or big, it doesn’t actually matter that much until the knot is tied, but whatever it is you should always fix a budget buffer in mind and proceed accordingly.

C – Ceremony

What will perhaps be the most serious day of your life should be planned out well in advance and in such a way that it doesn’t exhaust you or your guests out. If your intentions are to have two ceremonies, then it would be a safer bet to pace them out or combine the two ceremonies for two or more functions.

D – Destination

T – Tired
Oh yes! You’ll be tired in more ways than you can imagine after it’s all done and the guests have gone home.

Be it an early morning run, a yoga session or a sleepover at your friend’s place, take the time to unwind and recharge.

V – Venue
Depending on whatever you desire your wedding to be like and also on the venue permissions, the best from the lot should be chosen.

W – Wedding Planner
