AVOIDING THE MONEY TALK
It’s not the most fun discussion to have with your spouse-to-be, but it should be a priority. Kickstart your wedding planning in Goa with a conversation about how much you can afford to pay, and who will be paying for what. If your parents insist on paying for some part of the celebrations, don’t go overboard with demands.

Always remember that budgeting isn’t simply throwing a number out there. Create your estimates based on research. An insightful Goa wedding planner will be able to give you an excellent idea of costs as well as more affordable options if needed.
If your destination wedding in Goa is to be registered in the state, you’ll need to plan the formalities in advance. No religious officiant will conduct the ceremony if the marriage has not been registered in time and you could lose money on postponements.
