It’s that time already! You’ve picked out your trousseau, chosen your wedding party, and booked the venue – all that remains is to pick out the menu. From butter chicken to payasum – there’s a lot to taste (enjoy it while you can), but don’t forget the most important part – the wedding cake!
Wedding Planning Ideas to get you started. The wedding planner – the one woman (or man) army that is going to turn your wedding planning ideas upside down, in the best possible way! and here are few
If you’ve ever planned an event, you’ll know that it’s hard work. The big Indian wedding is the largest event of your life, and the pressure is definitely on. From jaw-dropping decor to making sure everything runs smoothly at the venue – there’s a lot that falls on your shoulders. This is why we think a wedding planner is a good idea. Of course, you’ll never be entirely stress-free until you have successfully ‘put a ring on it’ but at least this way you’ll have back up.
Planning your wedding, like any other big event in your life, requires hard work, patience, and a lot of organising! There are a few basic steps you need to take – sit down and plot out your ideas for the big day. Make a list – in fact, make multiple lists. That’s where we come in. At Wedding Wishlist, we believe in the power of the wedding planning checklist. Here are the different ways list-making can help you with planning your own wedding:
A is for Aathgath
After a Kashmiri wedding, it is traditional for the newlyweds to visit the bride’s home for dinner, which is known as ‘Satraat’. The couple is given garments by the bride’s family, and traditionally the groom will receive a pashmina shawl and the bride will be given ‘aathgath’, a gift of cash and salt.
B is for Bachelorette Party
A party hosted by the friends of the bride to celebrate the end of her unmarried days.

I remember 20 years back when I was getting married our very close Punjabi relatives and friends had no awkwardness in asking my parent’s frankly about the gift they should be bringing for my wedding. Their intent was three-pronged, one not to give something that would go waste, second not to duplicate any gift and three was to lessen the economic burden of the newly married couple. Some of the gifts that we got in our wedding until today are very dear & precious to my wife and me.
