As soon as someone decides to get married, suddenly everyone in the family becomes an experienced, certified-by-God wedding planner. We understand that it’s hard to hide your emotions and sometimes you want to go overboard for the people you love but let the couple take charge for once and see how things unravel.

The worst ones in the thought-process are the dur ke relatives. Read on people!


1. When making a Guest-list! 

Expectation – A simple wedding of 100 people. 

Reality – Everyone from Mama’s boss’s daughter to neighbour’s best friend is invited by ‘’default’’.



2. When designing your wedding invites!

Expectation – Customized cards embedded with couple’s photos because it’s obviously better than Mehta uncle’s son’s wedding invite. 

Reality – Glittery and gold in colour with a cryptic map and at least one spelling mistake. 



3. When selecting the perfect Venue!

Expectation – Somewhere on the outskirts of the city or organize an unforgettable destination wedding.


Reality – Ends up getting hitched at the banquet hall where all of the main family functions are held.





 

 

4. Your best look for the wedding!

Expectation – Got an expert makeup artist for last minute touch-ups.


Reality – Caught up in a cesspool of own sweat!


5. Caterers for the world’s best wedding menu!

Expectation – Food with almost impossible pronunciation and a fancy-ass bar.

Reality – Butter chicken, Paneer tikka, and Gulab jamun. Yes, This sums it up!



6. Dance is complimentary with drinks! 

Expectation – A flamboyant dance performance to begin with.


Reality – Excitement explodes with every Punjabi beat!

 



 

 

7. Framing every moment with beautiful pictures!

Expectations – A perfect photo-story out of a perfect wedding week.

Reality – Selfies. More selfies. Selfies with selfie-stick. Selfies with long-lost family members who just need an excuse to add you on Facebook. 


8. Honeymoon Planning! 

Expectation – Travel to your dream destination, some isolated island in some foreign country.
 


Reality
– Ends up in Goa instead!
