How to be a Budget-bride : The Wedding Diaries

Wedding season had arrived and if you’re one of those gorgeous girls who’s getting a rock on her finger soon, first of all, congratulations and secondly, well, congratulations again! It’s your big day! And although I’m sure you’ve had some plans regarding the venue and your wedding dress and the related stuff, here are a few handy tips so nothing would go out of the budget of your original plan.

Beauty treatments

So when it’s your big day and you obviously want to look your best and you must prep yourself before that. If you are planning on a salon for any of these, no. Salons cost more even for the simplest beauty treatments like waxing and facials, and the tax adds up, killing your wallet. Instead, search for beauty services online, which will give you the same services for lesser prices. You can easily save up by using Coupons from Housejoy, which provides all these beauty services at your home!


Lehenga blues

Big day and a big lehenga. Sounds legit. But just think, you’re probably gonna wear that only for that one time and do you think it’s wise to spend so much on it? So, back up. Whichever plans you were making, regarding the borders and gota and the jeweled work patches, think again. Get a good, nice lehenga which you can use as an Anarkali later and if you’re worrying that you’d look too dull, use a heavily embroidered double dupatta!


The Wedding Jewelry

One piece of Jewelry can change the look of your full attire, but you do have to be careful about it. Instead of spending a bomb on the heavy jewelry, take simpler ones that you can use later. And again, if you’re worrying that your attire will look will look very simple, you can style yourself with semi-precious jewels like kundan’s, pearl of imitation jewelry and layer it up!


Go DIY when you can

Mehendi, Sangeet, haldi, all these functions are mainly celebrated with your girl gang so go DIY, and you’ll be amazed by the creative ideas your babes will come up with. Be it entertainment for sangeet or an emergency makeup issue on Mehndi, peeps will handle it along with and just go for DIY!


Stock up on basics

It’s a widely known truth that our generation girls don’t wear sarees that often so instead of getting a bunch of them for the sake of Shaadi feels, invest in vibrant Anarkali, suit sets, and pair them up with palazzos and skirts for that special touch. You can save here as well if you can go online because of discounts everywhere. From all, Tata Cliq offers on ethnic wear will help you save more!



Apparently, in the end, everything comes down to food, and that’d be the talk of the town for sure so make sure the food tastes right. You don’t have to have some 20 starters and 15 desserts! Always remember that quality wins over quantity.


And well, have a happy and in-budget wedding!
