From the moment you get engaged you climb on to the emotional roller-coaster that is wedding planning. You’ll experience some amazing highs and hopefully only a few lows but if you’re feeling emotional then you’re not alone! Take a look at the 11 stages every bride or groom goes through:
This is it! You’ve proposed or said yes and now its the beginning of something special *cough* and something crazy *cough*
As the bliss of being newly engaged wears off, the reality of being married sets in. What are all these formalities? Who are all these relatives? Is that your masi or chachi? Is this my side of the family or yours?
You haven’t lost any weight, you can’t pick between a saree and a lehenga, what if you look like a decorated elephant on the final day or, even worse, a stale potato! On top of that you invited the wrong cousin masi’s sister-in-law and now you’ve to figure out where to find a pandit?
You’re so close to the wedding day but at this point you’ve realised you will never win against your dadi’s sister’s bhabhi’s neighbour’s daughter’s idea of an ideal wedding. So why not just follow your heart and do what you REALLY want to?
On the final big day, the flowers were the wrong pink, the pandit ate worth 3 people, your M-I-L wore that shiny disco saree you told her not to and your wedding ran 2 hours late against the “proposed mohrat”. Wasn’t exactly as planned but you know what? It was totally worth it!
