5 Things Couples Should Keep In Mind For Their Kashmiri Matrimonial
Finalizing the dates
Yes, the dates are finalized by the holy priests; however, there are several other factors one needs to keep in mind. If you are planning a wedding in Kashmir itself, make sure that you think about the guests as well. Plan your wedding between May-June or September-October, the roads are clear, and the weather is warmer, making everything better. And not only for the guests, but for the bride as well, donning a heavy lehenga with makeup and another thing is easy plus you don't have to worry much about snow or rain, and you can wear the outfits of your dreams.
Taking Care Of The Accommodation
Tourists love visiting Kashmir all year round and if you are planning a wedding in the valley itself, then ensure that you take care of the accommodation for your guests beforehand. If you plan to make your guests stay in a houseboat for your Kashmiri matrimonial, booking it at least 2-3 months before the wedding is a safer option. Hence, tourists love to stay in a houseboat too, so the chances of them being unavailable is more. Hence, make sure that you book it prior to avoid any last-minute hassle.
Type Of Bridal Entry
Planning your Kashmiri matrimonial lets you experiment with the bridal entry as well. Most of the brides walk and make a bridal entry to the banquet or venue, but if you are planning a houseboat wedding in Kashmir, then as a bride, you can enter in a Shikara. Sound's dreamy right? Trust us- it's every bit dreamy. Your friend or sister can sit with you in the Shikara to take care of your lehenga and help you get in and out of the Shikara. Plan this so that you are comfortable on the BIG day. You can even get the Shikara decorated as per your wedding colors.
Plan An Itinerary For Your Guests
If you have guests coming in from other parts of India, we are sure you want them to experience everything Kashmir has to offer. And for that, ensure that you plan an itinerary for them. Call them two days before the wedding and let them enjoy the stunning things that Kashmir has to offer. From food to Shikara rides and Pherans, everything in Kashmir is beautiful. If not a tourist itinerary, ensure that all your day-to-day functions are planned well, and the guests know about them in advance. Besides, planning a wedding itinerary for your Kashmiri matrimonial will also always save you from last-minute chaos.
Outfit & Food
A traditional Kashmiri bride prefers wearing Pheran for her wedding; however, if you are planning to wear a lehenga for your Kashmiri matrimonial, make sure you arrange one keeping the weather in mind. And not only the outfit, ensure that you plan the food keeping your wedding theme in mind. If you are having a traditional wedding, the food should also be authentic and traditional. You can opt for different cuisines too; however, ensure that you and your partner are on the same page for this.
