The main thing is venue. You can go for a good venue of hotels or any castles or you can decorate your own place...

Dear Kirthika,
First the pen paarkum padalam. You can register with various marrige bureaues and give the horoscope and tell your expectations. Then all the poruththams are suiting, the boy side or girl side can arrange for pen parkkum function. after the boy or girl said that he or she likes the girl or boy as the case may be, then fix the date for the kai nanaikkum function.Then Start from the kalyaana mandapam.
Decide on the place where the marriage function is to be conducted. Consult the bride or bridegroom side for this.
Naangal senguntha mudaliyaar. enave pengal veetukkaarangal thaan thirumanam seidhu kodukka vendum. Enave first of all, according to your budget decide on the kalyana mandapam check the availability of dates and decide the date of the marriage function accordingly.

Check the girl's last mensus cycle and preferably you have to give some ten days gap after the mensus so that on the first night day the conceiving cycle of the girl would have started. In our side the same day on which the marrige happened we fix the first night function.
For engagement, engal side people will visit the boy's house one day in the morning to have break fast (kaiyai nanaiththal) and we will invite the boy's side people to our house for a lunch or dinner. As this is the first time the boy's side people are coming to our house for kai nanaiththal the lunch or dinner will be in a grand manner.
If they are coming from a distant place we have to make parcel and give it to them to enable them to consume the same on the way. After nichaiya thaartham festival is over (some people will do along with kai nanaiththal) or they may do on the pen azhaippu day also.
according to your customs it can be decided. Then dress selection for the boy or girl. some are asking money for the dress so that the maapillai will select his own choice and give it for stitching the mapillai dress to be worn on the day of pen azhaippu procession.

Then comes how many savaran gold ornaments and silver porutgal your Pen veetar kodukka pogirargal. engal pakkam poduvaaga 50 savarangal ( 1 savaran - 8 gram of 22 carat gold) pennirkku poduvargal. 2 or 3 kg silver paathirangal like dining plate, tumblars, kuttu vilakku, kaamatchi villaku paal sombu pondravai. Boy side also decide upon the golden ornament they have to give on pen azhaippu day (10 soverans of gold chain minimum) and pori modhiram( on the marrige day the brother of the girl will have to be given with 2 soveran modhiram on the eve of pori viduthal in the manappandhal.


Then comes the menu for the pen azhaippu day dinner, marriage day break fast and marriage day lunch. Total contract can be given or you can select the menu and buy the pala sarakku saamangal and give it to the cooking contractor. if you give total contract he will not waste because all the expenses are to the account of contractor, If you take the responisibility of buying the pala sarakku samaangal he will waste like anything and your head ache will continue up to the last moment. Kattu saadham to be made parcel given to the people who are coming from distant places to enable to consume the same during their travel. Ella naathanargalukkum matrum nerungia uravinargalukkum medium size thavalai ( koombana vaai konda oru paathiram) niraiya sweet matrum paniyaaram kodukka vendum.


Then comes the transport arrangement for the boy side people to bring them and make them comfortable in the kalyaana chatiram for their stay. Then comes invitation printing, go to invitation design shop (while going from T Nagar to Kodambakkam near kodambakkam bridge a famous shop is there especially for the invitation designs) and along with the invitation our side people are giving a saree also to invite the important relatives or giving money along with the invitation to enable them to buy the sarees and dress materials of their own choice.

then comes the stage arrangement for the reception function. for this also contractors are available. If you want to arrange any music carnatic or light music on the pen azhaippu day it is also to be arranged in advance because of the date problem of these artists.

Then you have to decide on the pen azhaippu procession. If you want to start from a temple, decide the temple. arrange for the lamps to be carried through the procession and procession car decorated and ready for the procession.

Then decide about the photographers and video contractors to give wide coverage for the whole function.

Ippadi sollikkonde pogalam. Enda stageil irunthu thodanga vendum enpathai poruththu irukkirathu neengal keeta kelvikku vilakkamanna padil. enave ungal pakkam aatkal udhavi seyya niraiya per irunthaal contract kodukkamal ellathaiyaum ungal aatkale seiyalaam. aatkal vasathi illai yendral contract koduththu viduvathu uththamam. ungal vasathi eppadiyo appadi seiyungal. all the best.

Getting married is a wonderful experience. In many cases it is a once in a lifetime event that the bride looks forward to. There is a lot of stress surrounding planning a wedding however.

Choose Your Rings Early
Hire a Photographer
Rent a Reception Hall
Find a Florist

2. Venue is also an important part. Choose this according to the number of guests.
3. For you, parlour.
4. Photographer

6. Facility provides for the other party (Baratis)

Hope it helps.
