Myth #1: Expensive affair

Moreover, timely planning allows you to avail of a gamut of deals on venue and non-venue services like catering, decor, jewellery, outfits and insulate you from the brunt of inflation. Initiating the back-end work during the off-season also gives you the freedom to choose from the choicest selections at breakthrough prices and helps you execute the much anticipated eBig Fat Indian Wedding’ by eliminating the chances of last-minute price shoot-ups.
Myth #2: Weddings curated by planners lack a personal touch
It is a common perception that wedding planners put together a wedding that looks artificial and is far from what the couple actually desires or their personalities. However, they are professionals who work with the only purpose of bringing an individual’s plans to reality. They have the intention of providing clients an enjoyable and memorable experience, and seamless events leading up to the big day. In order to ensure the same, they make a note of the aspirations and preferences of the couple, get acquainted with their style and personality, and finally bring together an affair that simply is an extension of the couple’s persona and specially curated for them…all while being patient and passionate about your big day. Today, bespoke weddings are a rising trend across India, wherein all elements of the wedding, right from the wedding website, decor, bar, food menu and light settings are specially customized keeping in mind the couple’s interests and hobbies.
