For Indian families, a wedding is nothing less than a carnival of several days of fun, frolic and rituals. Whoever said that weddings can just be a dress-up affair, we refuse to believe! Indian weddings boast of grandeur and flamboyance that ooze out of the wonderful ceremonies and rituals. We, at Wedding Affair, can definitely testify to the fact that weddings are more than just a ‘grand affair’ for the couple, friends and families. But there are a few of us, who like to keep it simple and casual and we totally get you. The entire idea of having a minimalistic aura about your wedding is the newest trend in the market. And we, at Wedding Affair, are here to help you with some ideas to tone things down on your D-day while you cut the costs of your wedding festivities!
Minimal Wedding Décor
Décor is the first thing that strikes our minds when thinking of a wedding. Yes, décor plays a pivotal role in getting everyone in the wedding mood. But going overboard with huge chandeliers and luxurious tents isn’t always the perfect idea. You can always go for simpler, yet creative set-ups; flowers in neutral shades, minimum table decor and fun photo booths will tone the exaggeration down from your wedding. Also, it’s a money saver. So win-win! Yay! Plus, with the ongoing trend of DIYs, some brilliant DIY décor ideas are super easy to pull off to cut the costs of a wedding.
Yes, well, for many of us, weddings are almost synonymous with sumptuous and lip-smacking food. Isn’t it? Then why waste it, right? When you’re going to cut the costs of the wedding, try to focus on being elegant and not boisterous. Your menu should include the standard appetizers, main course and desserts that are made with love and presented well. You do not have to put up millions of varieties of cakes, ‘cause no one can eat that much, right?
Cut Down the Guest List
We get it, that weddings are supposed to be enjoyed in crowds, but rendering minimalism to the invite list is the new trend! We can always plan a guest list that includes the near and dear ones, family and friend. This way, we keep the guest list short and close-knit. Another plus of this would be that you can get everything done in a limited space with controlled budgets.
Picturesque Wedding Venue
We advise you to pick a venue that offers you the best view and picturesque locations. Spend a significant amount of your budget on the venue because it can save you a chunk on the décor. Beautiful locations exude the elegance of their own, hence require minimal decor. Cut costs with picturesque wedding locations.
Indian weddings are all about exchanging tons of gifts, sweets, fruits and what not! But if you’re planning to opt for minimalism, we suggest you pick up gifts that are ‘value for money’ and have great utility for your guests. You do not have to gratuitously spend on shiny artefacts or those gigantic gift items that are going to sit in your guest’s storeroom for ages.
Of course! We do need to invite our guests and inform them about the event dates, but why do we have to make a big deal out of it. With digital media growing bigger every day, we can simply switch to E-wedding-invites; send them on Whatsapp or Emails. This will save you a lot of money that can be used ion other things for the wedding.
