Wedding Decor can Be Complicated and Confusing
The other day I was looking at a super complicated spreadsheet of wedding decor costs and after a while, my eyes got lazy and I was like, ok, $500 here, $2000 here, ok $76 here....wait...
Did I just say "Ok an XBOX here, a macbook here, a fancy dinner here."
Indian wedding decor is sone of those things that you get so caught up in the big ticket items, a million little things sneak in and we all of a sudden don't realize how much extra we're spending.
Drive across town for $100 bill? Sure, I'm game.
Drive across town to buy my Mercedes from this dealer versus another dealer because it's $100 cheaper? Ah screw it, I'm already sitting in this comfy car.
It's the same $100!
In this post I'm going to explain the major parts of Indian wedding decoration.
Stage and Dance Floor
Understanding Indian wedding decor can be quite intimidating.
There's a million offerings to see on Etsy, Pinterest wedding decor and decorations are a wormhole.
Images on Instagram all seem to look the same after a while.
In this post I'm going to outline a 3-step checklist or guidelines for you to figure out, plan and chose your Indian wedding decorations.
But first, you need to realize something.
Just like with food at a buffet, there is a paradox of choice.
After a few hours you might be in bored mood, but we need to lock in on a mood board!!
Ok sorry, bad jokes ahead.
If you're like most brides I meet...you're:
You want something elegant yet creative and unique,
You want to lock it down and continue the planning process.
You tell your decorator (if you found one): "Hey, I love your work and everything you've done! But now do something for me you've never done before."
EXCUSE ME BRO!?!
