    You do need to pre plan as a lot of places are booked and you can then compare prices and able to make proper decision without rushing and furthering costs.

    There are companies that will "dress" venues up to look nicer but again that is an added cost (but places like community halls are cheaper).

    Do the rounds at local restaurants which do cater for wedding..find out prices and check you acutely like the type of food.

    I was sad and had spreadsheet and folder for my wedding. I had a year to plan so I budgeted for every last thing.
    Invitations
    Food
    Hall Hire
    Hall Decorators
    Make Up Artist/Henna Artist

    I made a list of everything I could think of and look at how much these things would costs and set a budget.

    There use to website called asian wedding directory. Try that
    If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost vs. your budget?

    My sister has a friend who's family specialise in doing that venue decoration and might get a discount as a result. Again, i'm just gonna have to ask around and get costings and spreadsheet them I guess. The problem with some venues is the complete lack of segregation options available to you.

I already asked for permission from the developer to arrange a walima. So I set tent for woman n man and me as a bride, set the chair n a bit fancy thing in my house for women to see me. My husband sit in man tent. The budget overall not more than 10k sr. But I arranged that in Indonesia n everything was cheaper. And also the tent n catering owner is my mom's fren so we got fren's price. 10 k is including my wedding dressed(made) for around 1k sr n make up about 500sr.
    10K in Indonesia is EXPENSIVE!!!

    I could, but I want a proper 'wedding' in that it's unreasonable to ask family who will travel to attend some distance hours away to come at seoerate times. I'd rather have a segregated venue at the same time. Maybe a small regal room for the ladies and bride that's well decorated with a tent on the grounds of an estate. They usually cater for smaller number of peoples I think.

My grandad (RIP) from my dads side pitched up a tent for women in the house courtyard and one for men on the outside road for men for two of the weddings. My grandad (Mums side) lived round the corner and his wife; my grandma is my dads aunty. These were first cousin marriages almost for the most part.

    Can't really do that in the UK cause of how small some gardens are, so we're usually left to halls etc.

    Well, for start the fact in the UK we live away from the desirable beaches. Blackpool and Brighton beach don't count @)

    Plus, asking guests to get there, endure the expenses sometimes if your holding it abroad is too much.

    Jazakllah khair for seeing why I asked. If I lived in a typical Pakistani family, this wouldn't have been an issue. Venue and guests arrangments are practically a non-Issue as parents invite everybody they know etc. and foods catered for by the large firms they know. Basically, everythings sorted. However I'm now on my own and have to act as a wali where possible for my sisters, act as an elder for brothers where possible and i'm left to plan everything for my own future.

    No offence to the sister who asked me why i'm worrying etc. when not due to marry anybody just yet, but only a male in my situation will typically 'get it' as to the gravity of my situation and the stress it can cause thinking on it. So I like to ask suggestions so I can get rid of the doubt for tue future and be prepared. Better that than you be an unprepared fool imo.
