The Ultimate Wedding Checklist for Indian Bride.

But when it’s broken into series of smaller and more manageable lists it becomes less overwhelming and a fun process to enjoy with your fiance and family. Now that our bride is happily melting away those extra pounds with the Pre-Wedding Weightloss Hamper. We decided to move further in the wedding planning. And the first thing we needed was a checklist and tried googling the same.

It turns out most of the checklist available are for western weddings. Come on we don’t have an RSVP for the guest list.
The only stationary we use in our weddings is the invitation and the stamps for outstation invites.We don’t rehearsal dinner we have a three-course meal for the entire wedding season.┬áIn India wedding is a family event and even the minute detail cannot surpass your Massi and Chachi.We needed a checklist that would include everybody’s wish.
