Wedding advice for the couple!
While I’m not married yet, over the years I’ve seen tons of advice been given to the couple. Whether it’s for the functions or the D-Day, most of this so-called wedding advice is annoying and uncalled for.
But kya kare – Hum hai aadat se majboor right?
I remember watching an aunt describe to her nephew (my friend) how important it is to provide an extra appetizer on the plate. If he wouldn’t do that then people would talk shit about the food and wedding!
Can you imagine, not getting an extra appetizer would mean that the wedding is shit! My friend didn’t want that because adding extra options meant that his budget would go up! (This was pre-COVID-19 when you could call 500+ for the main event.)
Long story short, he ended up getting tons of wedding advice such as,
1. Importance of a grand entry during the reception,
2. Need of keeping a bar counter and spending on booze,
3. Getting an AC hall to show class!
4. Classy wedding cake designs, and much more.
What are my thoughts on wedding advice?
Times are tough in 2021! While many can take the help of their parents to have a lavish wedding, others might not be able to afford it. It’s a lot to do with salary cuts, job losses, and loss of savings.
Many young couples genuinely want to fund their wedding, do the whole wedding planning and hence stick to a budget.
Hence if you cannot provide a lavish spread in food or cannot add that extra appetizer, it’s fine. You do what pleases you. It’s your special day. Plan it how you want it to be remembered.
Wedding advice for the couple I gave?
I once had asked a close friend to save enough for the wedding + expenses for the 1st year (knowing how her lifestyle was). Also, I suggested that they stay separately post-marriage (theirs was an inter-caste marriage).
Have you ever given wedding advice for the couple? Maybe they are either your friends/family? Let me know what advice was it!
