Weddings: White and Indian ones

I am a girl. I have thought numerous times about the time when I get married, if I do. And I’ve decided that I don’t want a big wedding. Just a court marriage and then a big delicious dinner which I can enjoy.

In a big fat Indian wedding, the bride and (I think) the groom are supposed to fast till they get married, then get married, snap loads of pictures and finally have the lunch/dinner after everyone has left.

I don’t want that!

My favourite part about an Indian wedding is when the bride’s brother twists the grooms ear. It’s his way of saying-Treat my sister well, or I’ll kick your ass.

Then is the food part. Food is an extremely important part of an Indian wedding. It defines the status of the wedding. Non delicious food can make you gossip fodder for years to come. Indians need food like the Dothraki need killing at their weddings.

So basically, the bride and the bridegroom decide a really yummy menu with all of their favourite dishes and then they end up eating the leftovers.

Maybe most of them are just too happy that they are married and that the guests enjoyed themselves. Whatever. Not me.

When I get married, I actually want to enjoy my wedding and food is a big part of the enjoyment process. Hence the court marriage and the dinner.

Why is an almost eighteen year old talking weddings?

I was watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. just now. Ross was getting married to Emily (his second wedding). She wore a beautiful white dress. She looked so damn beautiful. All brides do. They get this magic glow which works better than any kind of makeup. The bride is undoubtedly the most beautiful woman in the world at that moment.


The thing is, I want that too.

I want to be a beautiful bride with a happy blush. Someday. But I want it bad.

And I want my sister (because I’m a feminist and my sister is bad ass) to twist his ear.


So back to Friends. I got it when Emily got mad when Ross said “I take thee, Rachel.”  Any girl would. Usually I love Ross (although Chandler is my Friends’ guy). But at that moment, he was an arse. Big time.

All this wedding talk, and I’m not even of the age. There’s plenty of time. But, oh dear God, white weddings make me swoon.
