To save you the trouble of conjecture on these, here’s a complete list suggested by experts that could make the wedding a smooth affair for the newly-weds and their families alike.

Read on to know how…

1. Mistake: Gifting incorrectly

Flowers that say the wrong thing

Pick a classy, light bouquet for the newly-weds instead of a bulky one that they find cumbersome to even hold.

2. Mistake: Selfies onstage

Leave this to the professionals instead

Restrict the use of mobile phones, especially on stage, else each photo will feature a selfie and spoil your memorable frames.

3. Mistake: Wearing a suit

Your wedding outfit shouldn’t be wearable in the boardroom!

Grooms: Keep the formal suits for the boardroom and invest in an outfit you can repeat to other formal events post your wedding!

4. Mistake: Going Indo-western

Accessorise according to your outfit!

Again, a Western import the flower wreathes look mismatched on the elderly and young guests alike. Instead focus on a nice hair-do!

5. Mistake: Too much jewellery

Don’t accessorise like an X’mas tree

Too much jewellery can ruin the overall look. So go easy on your jewels, if not minimal.

6. Mistake: overly coordinated

Colours from a family shouldn’t resemble uniforms

The bride’s besties need not look like they’re dressed up in school uniforms. It’s a Western import and sadly, does not blend in with a traditional desi wedding!

7. Mistake: eat right

Skip messy foods!

When planning your wedding menu steer clear of messy foods like ice cream bars and chunky starters to keep it clean.
