Not booking honeymoon 'experiences' early on
Want to snorkel in Australia or skydive in South Africa ? Well, you better book them NOW ! Booking early and online can save upto 20% on your experiences.Not accounting for postage of your wedding boxes So you went and ordered that big fat wooden box you love . Now, imagine posting it all over India with courier charges . Keep your invites simple. Not using the wedding cake hack Here is the thing- if you have a guest list of say 300, you dont need to get a fancy fondant cake of 7 kg. Get a fancy fondant cake of 2-3 kg to cut on stage. Then tell the baker to make the exact same flavour but a simple one layer cake which you can cut up and serve later. Anyway only family will feed it to you on stage and the other cake can be displayed with the dessert. Splurging on a real mathapatti Honestly, the gold plated ones look just as nice and you might not even wear that chunky piece of jewellery too often , so don't splurge on real accessories.

Not only will it leave a heavy dent in your wallet but also on your health as crash diets can seep your energy levels. Instead, just follow basics. Drink lemon water everyday, exercise 5 days a week and no, cut out carbs and oily food at night! For beauty, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. Over Invite People: Feeling guilty that you dint invite the entire office and want to do that? That’s at least 50 plates extra. There are reasons why you dint invite them in the first place – also last week invitations look a little tacky! Freaking out because your cousin / BFF / Someone in family is wearing the same dress or jewellery: I'll tell you this, I had a cousin who a few days before her wedding discovered that her MIL is also wearing the same satlada as her from Kishandas. She freaked out and went on a last minute jewellery rampage and ended up splurging on a piece she won't wear ever again. Not worth it. If someone got the same lehenga or jewellery, you style it differently! Letting your vendor bully you: Well, decorators or planners sometimes (with all the best intentions, of course) add in a few cool things right at the end. How about a bunch of doves? Or why don't we add those Thai flowers? etc etc. So know your mind and if you planned ahead, don't be swayed by new ideas however good they are! By Apoorva Pagar
