When a marriage is scheduled even though at the end of the year, there is never too much time on hand. There are so many things that need to be coordinated from the venue to the guest list, the caterers, the clothes, footwear, the number of functions and if it is a typical fat Indian wedding then it gets crazier. Amidst this, one more thing that is important is the health and of the bride and the common mistakes that most brides-to-be make.

So here is a list my newly married best friend handed to me and I thought why not share it with Hz readers as well. No matter how alert you are and how great a reputation you have for your organisational skills, you are bound to make a mistake. So hopefully these pointers will help you.

Just to fit into a certain dress or look thin at their wedding, brides go on a crash diet which they do not realise, harms their metabolism, and can lead to skin problems and even PCOD. It is better that you seek professional help and go on a diet suggested to you by a nutritionist. Do not become your own fitness experts or nutritionists.

Ignoring Yourself

Quit going by what all brides are doing. Get what you always wanted when it comes to clothes, the fabric, the footwear, and not what that actress wore wherever. Choose the music you like and resonates with your relationship not what friends say as, after all, it is your wedding.

Selecting your wedding dress is fun but a task as well. It has to be perfect not just look and feel wise but also when we think of comfort, it should fit the bill. Don't fall into the trap of the seller, he or she has to finish their stock! Take your time, start the hunt a few months before so that you don't give in to any kind of pressure and then buy when you are totally satisfied.

Creating A Budget
