Most girls have dreamt of having their perfect fairytale wedding for as long as they can remember. However, in this day and age of the jet set lifestyle, most brides and grooms-to-be do not have the time to spare to handle every minute detail that goes with planning a beautiful Bengali Wedding that will live up to their dreams. Earlier, most couples could only resort to seeking help from their family and friends, and even then they would end up doing most of the leg work themselves.
These days, luckily, help has arrived in the form of the blessed Wedding Planner. Zeroing in on a suitable planner is a task in itself, but in the end the effort is worthwhile. As long as you select someone who you are comfortable with and who completely understands your wants to perfection, the Bengali Wedding of your dreams will go off without a hitch.
The first step as always is keeping options among wedding planners; find out a few planners who are familiar with Hindu Weddings in Bangladesh or Muslim Weddings in Bangladesh. Then set up appointments to meet them individually, and you will be able to interview them and judge for yourself who would be able to do justice to your ideas and opinions. Figure out the budget allotted for your wedding, the ideas you have for themes, catering options and the venue.
Ask as many questions as you can during the initial meet-How long they have been in business, have they planned a Wedding in Bangladesh before, have they planned catering for a Bengali Wedding before with special Bengali dishes on the menu, have they handled printing for wedding invitation cards before. Also talk about the charges for the services they would be providing for you. Some Planners have a flat rate fee; others charge a percentage fee, while some planners offer “free” service and are paid by vendors with “kick backs”.
One of the most important things you need to make sure of is making yourself heard and ensuring that the planner has an absolutely clear idea of what you want. The planner is there to help you out and make things easier for you. It is natural for them to make suggestions, but the ultimate decisions have to be made by you. Give them exact instructions on the type of flowers you prefer, your color scheme, theme for your Bengali Marriage, number of people expected at the wedding, number and type of cards to be printed, every aspect of catering like food, beverages, table settings, table cloths center pieces, floral arrangement, transport for the bridal couple as well as wedding guests. Having this information will help them do all the planning, booking and coordinating as per your requirements.
Once you are convinced that you have found yourself the perfect planner to help you with the Bengali wedding of your dreams, provide them with all the information they will need to do the best job they can for you, while you can enjoy the peace of mind you rightly deserve before what is sure to be the happiest day of your life.
