Pick a date and try and stick to it
If you haven’t already - before you do anything else, you’ll need to decide on a date. Asian weddings can take a LOT of preparation so it’s crucial once you set a date that you stick to it and plan around it. As soon as you’ve picked a date you’ll need to set a budget, and choose a venue that accommodates the right number of guests and meets your cultural beliefs - this is where you’ll need to find a venue that is available on your desired date. If you can’t decide on a particular date straight away, decide on a month first.
Set the right tone with the right venue
It’s important to keep in mind the size of your guest list as well as your wedding budget when searching for a wedding venue. For a traditional wedding you might be after a larger space where you’ll have lots of room for guests or if you’re looking for a themed wedding you’ll want to consider a marquee/tent type venue that can be transformed into your perfect venue with carpets and furnishings. It’s worth remembering when looking at venues to have an idea beforehand of what you are looking for to avoid wasting your valuable time.
Consider a theme
If your looking to make your wedding stand out for your guests, consider choosing a fun or unique theme. A theme can reflect your personality or something you love that translates well into a theme. There are a variety of potential themes available to choose from so it’s worth exploring your options. A Bollywood theme is often a popular choice for Indian weddings, and goes down well with guests. This might involve your relatives dressing up as iconic Bollywood stars and entering your venue on a long red carpet with photos being taken. Another potential theme is a tropical theme - related to sunshine, beaches, and blue water. Red, yellow and orange colours on a white base dominate in a tropical wedding theme.
A good surprise goes down well
Everyone likes a good surprise, so why not surprise your guests with entertainment they won’t expect. Perhaps hire a bhangra artist or a Bollywood choreographer to get your friends and family up and on their feet or you could book a magician who can go from table to table surprising your guests with a wide variety of tricks. Whatever entertainment you choose, go for something that will make every guest feel involved and a part of your wedding but most of all - lets everyone have a bit of fun.
Food glorious food
Deciding a menu can be a real challenge, especially if you have hundreds of guests dining at your wedding and it’ll be a moment where you don't want to let your guests down. However, rather than going overboard with the food it’s cultural dishes that seem to get the best reactions as they resonate with most guests who share the same culture and it is exciting to those from other cultural backgrounds who may not be familiar with some of the dishes.
Don’t Forget the Decorations
Regardless of your budget, wedding size or theme - eye-catching decorations are essential to any Asian wedding. Whether you go for simple, eye-catching decorated zones or something more extravagant, the decorations will help set the tone and atmosphere of the wedding. Most of the Asian weddings decorations are flower based as they add warmth comfort to the wedding. When choosing flowers, select a colour scheme according to your taste and if your wedding is themed, choose flowers that will match well with it.
Weddings can be stressful as it’s one of the most important days of your life. However, it should also be one the funnest days of your life. Make your special day enjoyable by doing some relaxation exercises in the days before, participate in dancing when the music starts, organise activities that are fun and get people involved. Decide what fits you, your culture and your religion and when the day starts enjoy every moment.
