First things first, to enjoy your home wedding function to the fullest, you ought to make sure you’re at your comfortable best. So wear something that doesn’t suffocate you, and lets you frolick around with ease. Opt for airy lehengas, wide-legged shararas, flared angrakhas or short lehengas over their counterparts.
Keep the guest list limited

When you host a wedding at home, you’ll definitely have space constraints with a larger guest list. Hence, to ensure that you don’t end up swarming your place with people, it’s always better to downsize your guest list & only invite those who are close to you.
Delegate as much work as you can

Once you’ve created the blueprint of your dream wedding plan, the next big thing to do is to divide the work amongst people. Don’t burden yourself into planning each and every element all by yourself. Rope in your family members & friends and delegate a set of responsibilities to each & everyone. Say, some can handle decorations & lighting, others can take up catering, vendor follow-ups, outfit pick-ups and so on.
Reserve a room for yourself

Amidst all the hustle-bustle, don’t forget to secure a room for yourself. You will not only require some personal space to get ready, but also allow yourself some ‘Me’ time before it’s time for your ‘I Do’. Also, this way you can even take a quick nap or two in between, while everyone continues with the preparations.
Opt for minimal decorations

‘Less is more’ is the way to go! So why go over the top with your home wedding decorations? Keep them as minimal as you can. Backdrops created with Mogra strings or genda phool garlands work wonders for an intimate. All you need is a bunch of them, and you’re all sorted. In case you have a backyard, it’s even better! You can shift your decorations to the greens, and tie the knot amidst the lap of nature.
Ideate the decor and sitting plan beforehand. (You can even draw a layout for better clarity)

Don’t wait until the last day to decide over a sitting plan. Check through your space thoroughly, and pick a suitable spot in your home where you can accommodate your expected guest list. After you’re done with that, pick a beautiful decor setup from your wedding mood board that would fit the best into that spot.

Much like everything else, your food menu also depends on the head count expected at your home function. So have a clear guest list in mind and then jump onto deciding a menu. However, don’t get too overwhelmed either. Keep your menu small yet adequate to avoid wastage, and at the same time don’t forget to put some unique & interesting delicacies on the table.
Keep a janitor to keep the washrooms clean

Since it’s difficult to make additional arrangements for washrooms when hosting a wedding at home, the least you can do is appoint a janitor to ensure timely cleaning throughout the day.
