9 Hilarious Tweets That Describe the Indian Wedding Planning Process
Nervousness + excitement + a little bit of anger (cause the mithaiwala didn’t get the right sweets) Throw in a bunch of kids frantically running around the house and Aunties talking about “Bachhi kitni badi ho gayi” and BOOM – you have a Big Fat Indian Wedding – What’s not to love? Through this wedding planning process we found tweets that perfectly sum up the journey you and your fiancé embark on!
It is all rainbows and butterflies those first few weeks after the engagement! Your inbox flooded with congratulatory messages and facebook notifications that are reaching up to the sky.
LOG BACK INTO REALITY
There is so much to do and you better get started quick! Pick your squad and get them excited too – the creative junkies, the financers, the fashion addicts, the negotiators and the foodies!
RAVI, WHO? MY COUSIN?
That awkward moment when you find out you have 37 second cousins from your dad’s side of the family and 15 from your mother’s side and you can practically hear your grandma saying “Beta, how can we leave out our own close relatives?!”
“UHH, DO I HAVE TO INVITE SHARMA UNCLE’S NIECE, DAD?!”
“Yes, beta – Sharma Uncle’s niece came to your 3rd birthday party, we have to invite her! Naak kat jayegi!”
Whether you like it or not – Indian weddings are big! And even though you might not know the 350 people from your 500 person guest list, they’re still loud, fun and so full of love!
HANDLING THE FIANCÉ’S OBSESSIONS
WHEN IT’S TIME FOR PINTEREST TO BECOME A REALITY
Cue freaking out and a little nervous crying cause you still have pinterest and your besties AKA unofficial / unpaid wedding planners!
AND SLOWLY BUT SURELY, YOU BECOME A SUPER BRIDE
Painting nails in a moving car, convincing the venue to give you an extra dessert, dancing in that 5kg sangeet lehenga – ha! No big deal
LITTLE THINGS, IT’S ALWAYS THE LITTLE THINGS
No wedding in the history of life has happened without a mishap – either the rings are missing, or someone forgot the groom’s tie or (even worse) the brides shimmery gold dupatta disapperared! *gasp*
But the good news is that someone – always, always comes to the rescue! We like to secretly label them, the fairy godmothers of Indian weddings!
It’s been a long day with HD make up on your face and flowers that make you neck itch – you deserve that Gin & Tonic, girl!
HAPPILY EVER AFTER!
And when it’s all over – you’re excited for another new journey with your bae but also miss the madness of planning your Big Fat Indian Wedding!
