Myth: It will be perfect if I plan well in advance.
Truth: Nothing man made is ever perfect. Yes, you can strive for perfection but don’t sweat the small stuff so much that you miss out on the important part- enjoying your own wedding! Plan it all out in detail if you wish to and make sure you hire reliable contractors and vendors; this will ensure that you get the best services available.
Myth: I will have to invite every distant relative to the wedding because it is a onetime celebration.
Truth: Not really. This is YOUR wedding and you have the power to plan and schedule things here and a major part of the planning depends on the budget. Plan your guest list according to the budget you have for the event. Remember, the more the number of people there are, the higher the bills for caterers, larger venue and entertainment arrangements. Invite the people you feel connected to and not only for formality.
Myth: I have set a fixed budget to accommodate everything.
Truth: Even if you have set up a definite figure in your head of the total expenses you wish to spend on your wedding arrangements, chances that your final budget might go over it. This is because of the miscellaneous expenses that we don’t usually anticipate. What is advised is to hold back at least 10-15% of your total budget for such unexpected expenses. This way you would not have to fret for extra amount during or after your big day and you can always add it to your honeymoon expenses if you are left with anything.
Myth: You can save money if you hire local DJ and provide him with a list of your selected songs.
Truth: Having a professional entertainment is one of the most important parts of wedding planning. Look out for the best Asian wedding DJ instead of settling for some local band. This way you would not have to stress over the quality of service you would be getting (you can also include Punjabi DJ bhangra artists to perform for your guests, YAY!).
Remember, weddings are made in heaven and there is no need for you to fret over small matters on your special day. Just relax and enjoy the moment with your loved ones.
