It is particularly difficult for families who have lived abroad to host an NRI wedding in India. And especially if your visits to the motherland are infrequent, you probably are clueless about the trendy wedding planners, popular wedding venues, and sought-after hotel accommodations in the city you’re getting married in.
Here are 7 things you need to consider when planning NRI weddings:
Select a Classy yet Fun Place
The big day you have been planning up to this day has to be perfect. And one of the most important tasks is to choose a glamorous wedding venue. NRI kids have grown up watching Bollywood movies and they’d expect their own wedding to be no less of showbiz. Select a classy venue that caters to all your wedding ceremony needs. Also, make sure the venue is just the right size for all your guest invites. If you plan to hold all your functions, including your reception all at once place, look for a venue that helps you with décor that blends well with all the functions.
Hire a Wedding Planner
Wedding planning isn’t all fun and games. There’s so much to do before your big day. Consider hiring a wedding planner who can help you with most of your tasks. From décor, vendors, accessories to the smallest details, a wedding planner makes your big day come together seamlessly. Wedding planners are experienced in staying on budget to make sure you’re on spending on exactly what you signed up for. They will also make sure a timeline is set to meet your needs.
Decide on the Number of Functions
Once you have selected your venue, decide on the number of functions for your wedding. This is an important task to check off your list of to-dos since you need to let your wedding planner start their preparation.
Select a Wedding Theme
Selecting a wedding theme makes all your decisions a little easier. From flowers and decorations to match Haldi and Sangeet to your reception night, make sure there’s a theme for every event. Remember, you want a wedding that is uniquely yours.
Plan Your Travel in Advance
It’s especially important a wedding-seeking couple and their families plan their travel in advance. This is especially true if you’re planning a destination wedding. So book your tickets in advance to avoid extra costs.
Accommodation and Travel Arrangements
If you’re hosting a destination wedding where most of your guests will be traveling to, booking your hotel room blocks is a good idea. Since most NRI weddings take place between December-February, there are high chances most hotels are pre-booked.
Finalize the Guest List
Once you have made all the arrangements, make sure you finalize the guest list. You may have guests flying in from different parts of the world. Send out invites to all your guests in advance so that they can plan their travel.
