1. Though it looks gorgeous, it seemed like a lot of work to organize: matching clothes, flowers, grand entrances, photo sessions etc. Desi weddings are time consuming as it is.
3. Matching outfits seemed like a ‘must’. Expanding our budget to cover the costs wasn’t an option. I didn’t want to ask my friends to pay. (Especially when they’re coming to my bachelorette, bridal shower and giving a wedding gift)
4. I didn’t want to force my friends to buy and wear something they might not like nor wear again.
6. It took 2-3 hours to get ready for the ceremony and another 1.5-2 to get ready for the reception.
There wasn’t a lot of time to hang out with my friends that day.Best advice: Your closest friends will expect to hear from you about this. Let them know about your decision.
