Let me look into the horse decor. There was another Indian MP bride who got married in April that bought the horse decor and then decided not to do a baraat... so she told me she'd sell me the decor. I'll ask her how much it is.
For the Garba, I'm doing a bangles theme... so I'm bringing a lot of pink/orange/blue bangles & of course, we'll be bringing dandiyas. For the reception, we're doing a peacock theme and are bringing a ton of peacock feathers (I may also bring table runners for this, still TBD). If you're thinking about similar themes, we can totally split on cost for any of it!
We'll probably also bring a lot of stuff for our pooja, but I'm not sure what exactly... and I'm also not sure if you guys use the same stuff in your ceremony... but we can work that out later. Not sure if we'll be bringing anything else...
I also have this document that has some venues and capacities (I also e-mailed it to you)... this should give you a good start.

On that same note, are you bringing other decor, prop's, etc. that I could split costs on??
I am estimating that we will have 100 people. We booked the wedding 3 weeks ago, and I already have 67 people on booked flights. No one has booked their rooms yet. My TA will be doing that for my guests.
But as we will be having the maiya parties separately, we will have around 50 people at the outdoor venues. Any locations come to mind?
