Better be cautious in selecting a bride or groom for which there are even some reliable private detectives assist for your help, either it is a settlement within or outside the State or Country. Then plan and list out the number of people to be invited for the Betrothel as well as for the Wedding and arrive out a clear number of guests. Random number will spoil your money and hardship.

Then plan for engaging the priests depending on your religious customs and tradition privately or at the Church/temple.

Book in advance sufficient number of guest rooms in Hotels in advance and avoid embarrassment later. There are also some private bungalows in good residential localities with multiple bedrooms available for stay. Book some vehicles like mini buses, vans or cars to your requirement including a special Wedding Car for the Couple. Horse drawn carriages are now becoming popular in some weddings. In some families you may have to book return Train, Bus or Airtickets which can be arranged by travel agencies in bulk or single.

As the marriages are conducted mostly on an auspicious day, you may find it difficult to bring some groups like marriage bands, classical nadhaswaram parties etc, therefore reserve everything in advance. If the Reception Hall or Wedding Hall have no infrastructure facilities like public address systems, adequate seatings, music player systems and electrical service systems you need to bring them from outside providers. Carnatic vocal singers, light music orchestras RJs are popular in some marriages.

A marriage cannot be without colours, wearings and ornaments. You need to buy some Kancheepuram Bridal Sarees of good quality for the Bride and Wedding Suits for the Bride Groom and other wedding textiles for your family members and some important relatives. In some occasion you may need to buy some additional jewellery if you don’t possess the required one. Thiru Mangalyam or Thali and its string are essentials and are now tied everywhere in Gold. Therefore you need to buy some additional jewellery apart from everything you possess suit to latest designs and expectations. Some people even wear fancy,covering gold ornaments for attending the marriages. The Bride as well as other women members should have a periodical consultation preferably with some beauticians, in preparation for the marriage so as to get a good result on the upcoming day.

Arrange for wedding caterers to serve you better in giving a quality tasty food of your choice and quantity in serving everyone without any disreputation and dissatisfaction. It is always to keep in mind that once a food served is good, everyone will bless and thank your family for giving a good host.

Send wedding invitations by post/courier services to the people in outstations in advance so that they may have a well planning and shall always be expected to come. Some VIP/VVIPs may require special attention for whom you may need to arrange some floral bouquets.
Event organisers here play an important role in receiving them at the Portico or verandah. Distribution of wedding invitation cards in and around your residence and home town shall consume some weeks and this task has to be completed atleast one week before the date of the wedding.

It is better you assign every task to some of your suitable family members to complete the job to your satisfaction promptly without fail.
