When it comes to questions to ask a wedding planner, this should be your first. You don’t want to waste your time (or theirs) if they’re not free on the chosen date. If your wedding date is still flexible and you’d be willing to wait to work with someone you really love, ask for a few options so you can take them into consideration when you’re finalizing your timeline.
2. Can you work within our budget?
Next up on the list of important topics to cover is money. “While not necessarily a fun topic, it’s extremely important for the couple and their planner to have a thorough discussion of the wedding budget as early on in the process as possible,” says Checey Cherian, owner and principal event designer and coordinator at Iten Weddings Co in Kerala. The wedding budget and amount of work are finalised after discussions with you. However, we guide you for the costs savings and you will receive special rates offered by us. And usually, we work with our own production house for all events, we never outsource our projects to any third-party vendors or suppliers, except for entertainment, transportation, power backup services and large outdoor tents.
3. How Much Does a Wedding Cost in Kerala?
Well, we’re reluctant to use words like typical or average, because there is no such thing as an average wedding! That’s it, we know that it’s really helpful to have concrete figures in mind. So, while it’s true that you can pull off a wedding on almost any budget, for couples who opt for ‘the works’, the average cost of a wedding in Kerala is 336,000/-
4. Do you plan and arrange other functions besides weddings?
Yes! We also do social events such as anniversaries, engagement parties, life event celebrations, corporate events and other special occasions. We are happy to help with any function.
04 Most Common Questions
about wedding planning..! answered
1. What elements will make the biggest on ambience ?
“Lighting is an important factor in setting the mood for your event. When in doubt, opt for ‘soft amber’ bulbs; they’re classic and flattering. Candles are a part of the lighting design and even just a few votives on a dining table can make all the difference. If you fall in love with an elaborate, vintage place setting on Pinterest, don’t feel like you have to mimic the exact pieces to get the same look. Just adding upgraded flatware or glassware will capture the same essence and give you room in the budget to add other details like custom calligraphed signage or a sprig of greenery for a napkin treatment. A mock-up of your place setting can help you determine what is absolutely essential and what you can do without, while still conveying the look and feel you want guests to experience when they sit to dine with you.
2. How do we find the best wedding venues in Kerala ?
“It depends on the size of your wedding and location, of course, but we definitely recommend reaching out to several venues for quotes to get you started.
