Reduce your wedding expenses if you are low on the budget because it’s not worth the hassle. What’s the point of taking a bank loan or borrowing money from your family and friends? just to please few hundred people. In a country like ours, wedding at times is a load rather than a celebration. While there are all smiles on the faces of the family members, there is a lot going on inside their mind.
We are not saying that there is any harm in having an extravagant wedding. If you have enough and can afford when than you can do that by all means. However, what about the middle-class families. They are always worried as to what the society would think if they do anything less. Parents have to look after their children’s wish, the family, and the future in-laws.
Here’s why you should reduce your wedding expenses!
You can have a great honeymoon.
You end up spending all your money on the money and are not left with anything in your wallet. Later you decide to move your honeymoon ahead so that you can save some money. At times, you couldn’t save that and end up going nowhere. Also, if you are planning to travel within the country, you might end up saving more and plan an international trip.
Spend on yourself or something you dearly want.
You might have dreamt of having something, something you might not be getting as a wedding gift. Spend that money on getting those things or treat each other with something special. Well, you know how your family manages the household chores and it’s not easy to get everything you like whenever you want to.
How can you save that extra bucks!
Leave the mehndi …
Yes! you heard it right. You don’t have to spend so much or a little bit on this event. We are sure that your friends and cousins so wanted to show their dance moves but hey, you don’t have to take a financial pressure to see their dance moves. The standards of these events have gone up with the social media hype they got. Now you need a dance floor, special lights and a DJ to get a mehndi event going. If you pull all your strings, even then it takes more than 200 thousand or more to organize a decent mehndi function. What can you do with this amount of money?
Invite close family members and friends only.
You don’t have to invite everyone, it’s not a food fest. You can always keep your gathering limited to the closed ones. If you are asked by people who were not invited, you can always tell them it was a close family affair. However, you can give them small giveaways later so they just don’t feel left out.
Don’t go for a food fest. Two dishes are good enough to fill everyone’s stomach
You don’t have to pile up the dinner table different kind of dishes. It’s not a royal wedding or so, you can always control the cost by eliminating extra things. One of those things is the food, you can have two simple dishes which is good enough for the guest.
No Box gifts, please!
This might sound western but there is nothing wrong with writing this on your invitation card. There is no shame in asking for cash only, you are not putting a price limit. Whatever they give, it will help you with a lot of things post-wedding. This money can help you get a lot of things done.
If you try to follow these small tips you can make the most out of the most special event in your life.
The 10 Not So Right Things That Can Happen On A First Date
Everyone’s first date is always special. No matter if it’s before getting engaged or after, it means something to everyone. You always remember the special moments from your first date. By first, we don’t mean the very first. It would be the first with your partner. People these days have many first dates. The first experiences can be exciting and sometimes awkward. We have shortlisted the 10 not so right things that can happen on a first date.
1. Arriving Late
This is the worst thing you can do on a date. Be early but never reach late. It leaves an extremely bad impression on your partner.
2. Using your phone
This is completely against the ethics. When you are meeting someone for the first time this leaves a very bad impression on the other person.
3. Trying to be too funny
Don’t try to be so funny. People who act too funny are normally little non-serious and often fail to solve complex situations.
4. Don’t eat like, as if you have eaten your whole life.
Remember you are there for someone else. It’s not the food you are there for.
5. Don’t be too full of yourself
Just don’t talk about yourself, too much of ‘me’ can ruin everything. The other person is not there to learn about how awesome you are, they are there to know someone who they can spend their life with.

There will be a lot of time to learn about each other’s opinions on things if the date goes well. So, first take it to the next step. Don’t pass on any comments which may trigger someone’s emotional side.

There is no need to investigate everything. Take it lightly on the first date, you don’t each other so well. Too much digging can get too personal and offend the other person.
8. Talk to the hotel staff nicely.
Your behavior is the most important thing if you want to have a second chance. How you behave and deal with other people is a testimonial of this.
9. Tip them nicely
This shows how generous are you and you care about such small things.
10. The awkward silence
The worst of all is going silent during the conversation. Such silence gives the other person an impression that you are not really interested in them or the meeting.

5 Things You Hear Every Day If You Are A Talkative Girl
We all talk about how difficult it is to hear things about yourself if you are an introvert person. Like people constantly judge you and aim their taunts at you for not being as social as them. However, what no one talks about is how painful it could be to be an overly social person. So today we would share with you 5 things you hear every day if you are a talkative girl.
1. ‘Yar Iskay Moonh Me Koi Filter Nahi’?
This is one of the biggest negative comments that a talkative girl has to hear. Since she loves talking, people start assuming that it’s their right to judge her. A lot of them even dare say things like ‘don’t you have a filter in your mouth’ right to your face if you are one.
2. ‘Kya Kha Kar Aee Thee’?
It’s actually funny how you can be judged that you have these superpowers after eating something. It’s like one of the old superstitions we had, that’s the reason it is said to the person who talks a lot ‘kawway khaay hain kya’?
3. ‘Iska Susral Main Kaisay Guzara Hoga’?
‘How would your MiL bear you’? ‘You would have to change yourself’ are the two things talkative girls hear all the time. Its high time people realize that how a girl lives with her susral is none of their business.
If you are a person who loves to poke your nose in another girls’ personal space, know that your daughter could go through the same situation soon!
4. ‘You Are Using your Tongue more and mind, less?’
It’s a common assumption that people who talk a lot, use their brains less. I want the readers to know that it’s not always like that. You can keep both, your tongue and brain, fresh. You can observe things and yet talk about your observations so others could learn a thing or two.
5. ‘Don’t you ever shut up?’
Imagine you are talking to your friend who does not like to talk much unlike you and all of sudden you hear ‘don’t you ever shut up’ from her. How agonizing would it be, right?
This is why the wise once preached us to be careful with how you play with your words. You can end up hurting the person you love the most.
Since we all like to be preached in the best manner, so preach the way you want to be preached. It’s understandable sometimes we all simply are not in the mood of listening to the gossips and stories of friends but it still does not give us license of judging them.
