Here's some help on how to shop for a wedding in the family.
1 Planning: A well-planned shopping experience is the best of all. When it comes to hassle-free shopping, the first thing to keep in mind is to plan well in advance what to buy, from where to buy and how to go about it. Make a list in the order of priority, and get as specific as you can. Also, plan out the logistics.
2 Budget: The second thing you need to keep in mind is the budget. Divide the budget for everything — attire, jewellery, shoes, accessories. Budgeting is important so that you don’t end up spending too much on one thing.
3 Company: Always go shopping with a companion who will be honest enough to tell you that purple is not your colour! Choose your company for shopping wisely. Pick someone who can guide you to better choices and help in avoiding chaotic situations without wasting time.
4 Stick to the tested stuff: Hit the old marriage markets of the city, and you’ll never go wrong. You may be a complete ‘mall girl’, but never underestimate the old market’s charm.
5 Never buy in bulk: When it comes to make-up and accessories, don’t buy in bulk.
