2. Booking vendors
It is suggested to book as many services as possible with a single vendor. You will get a big discount. Further to add, your saving of time will be added advantage. Instead of asking the vendors what you like, you show them the sample of things you like. It will leave no room for their own thoughts and you will get the things that you want actually.

If you are not in a position to hire a professional wedding photographer, just hire a shooter who can capture all of the memories. You may get them edited into a video later. You may ask your friends to capture the images and later you may send them to a company for making a full length video.
Make a list of all the invitees. Use your expense diary of past 2-3 years to track the people (your friends, relatives or acquaintances) to whom you have presented gifts. You may include their names in the list.
For wedding card, get the maximum information endorsed on the card itself so that you don’t spend money on different cards. Further, you may have a single card and single envelope.
5. Thank you note
Don’t forget to send a thank you note to all those who sent you wishes, gifts or presents for your day. It is a sign that that you still take care of the people and you are not busy in your own things. Remember, your friends, relatives or acquaintances expect that you acknowledge their gifts, wishes or presents.
6. Wedding attire
