The wedding day is perhaps the most important day in a person’s life. It changes the whole life of a person, mostly for good. Weddings in India are not just about two people getting married, but it is a grand festival. Families coming together and celebrating rasams like Mehendi, tilak, sangeet, etc. A whole package of fun, frolic, and festivity is what Indian weddings are made of.
However, no matter how perfect your wedding was, there are a few things that you would always want to change. Some things that you would do differently to make the day just more perfect for you.
1. No Week-Long Celebration
Although celebrations seem exciting, they can be exhausting too. You end up so tired after the ceremonies that you cannot even enjoy them properly. Sometimes, an evening to celebrate the joy seems more fitting than a whole week of ceremonies. A grand reception for your loved ones is always more preferable.
2. Shorter Guest List
You might not want to invite every other person you know, or in some cases, maybe the people you don’t even know. You wish you could have kept your guest list short and restricted to your family and some close friends and to people with whom you actually want to share your joy and happiness.
3. Fancy Venues
Dream weddings in royal palaces with 5-star amenities may be a dream, but in the end, you will realise that it is all just to show-off and unnecessary extravagant expenditure – money that could have been spent doing things that are fun, a venue can be any place that is simple with meaning to you and your partner, and it would be something to remember your entire life.
4. Social Causes
A lot of couples these days opt for a court wedding instead of traditional weddings, thus saving an exorbitant amount of money and precious time. They often celebrate their wedding by feeding the poor and homeless or at an orphanage or old-age home. You would want to do something like this, as this would have made you feel better about how you spent your day and your money.
5. Make Your Parents Say A Speech
Your wedding day is not only about the two of you. It is also special for your parents. Every parent dreams of seeing his/her child getting married and being happy in their marriage. Ask your parents to say a few words at your wedding to give them their due importance and making the day memorable for them as well.
6. Perfect Vows
A marriage is a promise for a lifetime… a promise to stay together ‘until death do us part’. Such a promise should not be taken for granted. Instead, utmost dedication should be put into writing your vows. You should write them from your heart and mean every word you say, as these will be the first words you would say to your partner as husband or wife.
7. Personal Time
The most important thing to keep in mind is that this day is special for you and your better half. So, sneak away from all the hustle-bustle and spend some quality time with each other. These are the moments you would cherish for life.
A wedding is, without a doubt, the biggest day of your life. Do not get excited at the first look of the prospects that are present. Take your time and think everything through before making a decision. Change things while you still have time to make your wedding perfect. There is never any point is regretting things you could have done differently.
