If you’re intrigued to get vendors from your city to the city of your destination wedding, then you must know that you have to cover their travel and accommodation costs as well. This will add up unnecessary expenses in your budget. So a better way to go about it is to set up a meeting with local vendors from the city to understand their work and then make a decision to hire them.

You can make a list of all the vendors you will need, like florists, decorators, videographers, makeup artists, and musicians. You can also ask your wedding planner in Rajasthan to suggest good vendors as your planner will know which vendor is best for what work.

  •       Get your outfit and makeup sorted
