To save you the trouble of conjecture on these, here’s a complete list suggested by experts that could make the wedding a smooth affair for the newly-weds and their families alike.
Read on to know how...
1. Mistake: Gifting incorrectly
Flowers that say the wrong thing
Pick a classy, light bouquet for the newly-weds instead of a bulky one that they find cumbersome to even hold.
2. Mistake: Selfies onstage
Leave this to the professionals instead
Restrict the use of mobile phones, especially on stage, else each photo will feature a selfie and spoil your memorable frames.
3. Mistake: Wearing a suit
Your wedding outfit shouldn’t be wearable in the boardroom!
Grooms: Keep the formal suits for the boardroom and invest in an outfit you can repeat to other formal events post your wedding!
4. Mistake: Going Indo-western
Accessorise according to your outfit!
Again, a Western import the flower wreathes look mismatched on the elderly and young guests alike. Instead focus on a nice hair-do!
5. Mistake: Too much jewellery
Don’t accessorise like an X’mas tree
Too much jewellery can ruin the overall look. So go easy on your jewels, if not minimal.
6. Mistake: overly coordinated
Colours from a family shouldn’t resemble uniforms
The bride’s besties need not look like they’re dressed up in school uniforms. It’s a Western import and sadly, does not blend in with a traditional desi wedding!
7. Mistake: eat right
Skip messy foods!
When planning your wedding menu steer clear of messy foods like ice cream bars and chunky starters to keep it clean.
