Call your Family & Friends

Start Wedding Planning
Start your wedding planning by making checklists and budgets! Figure out how many functions you want, what your parents are paying for and what you need to pay for! You may want to start saving up for that dream wedding lehenga you saw on Instagram!
Set Aside Time to Plan Daily
We know and understand that you want everything on your special day to be beyond perfect but we suggest that you take things slowly. Take out an hour or two everyday to work on planning the wedding so you are sure of everything and don’t overdo it and stay sane!
Every girl wants her wedding to be straight out of Pinterest. So for that, create a pinterest board and start pinning décor, outfit and hair and makeup ideas! After you have pinned everything start creating sections for each of your functions, and then decide with your family and friends!
Divide your Duties Between Family & Friends
Being a bride you can’t do everything at your wedding. So start assigning duties to your beauties. Let your family members handle the vendors, and coordinate things for you on D-day. Everyone should be clear ontheir part so there is no confusion left. PS- Make a group on Whatsapp to make it easier for yourself.
Enjoy the Process
Of course, this goes without saying that you NEED to enjoy the time from your engagement to the wedding and the whole process of wedding planning! It’s an experience of a lifetime and you should live it fully.
