- The City: Doing it in your own city that's the same as the photographer is the most feasible thing, otherwise spending on their commute, conveyance and stay is on you, which could add up, whether it is India or abroad.
- The Venue: Whether you plan to do it at a venue that's free (your house, the park) or some place that's chargeable (pre-set pre wedding shoot venues), this can add on to the cost. Pre wedding venues that have the perfect location can charge anywhere between Rs 25,000 per day to Rs 50,000 per day.
- The Props: Check with your photographer if you have certain props in mind. If they already have them, then you could request them to get it. Else sourcing them is up to you and you'll have to pay for it. Your 'props' could also be doggies or animals from a shelter- so pick a theme or themes and decide accordingly!
- The Makeup: Choosing to do it on your own is free, otherwise we do see a lot of brides-to-be employing an MUA for their pre wedding shoot. You can also avail WMG's family makeup service and choose the Silver package starting from Rs 4,000 for hair and makeup for your pre wedding shoot.
- The Outfits and Accessories: Of course, totally up to you if you want to wear something you already own, buy something new or even rent.
