I don’t know about you but 2017 is almost about to end and it certainly feels like, all I did in the Goddamn year was attend weddings and be judged by my extended family, Sharma Uncle and Chadha aunty for reasons known to them. Actually, scratch that. I know why.
Cause, I’m–wait for it–single and I work in the industry of news! *gasps* That and because my life is not news-worthy for reasons I told above. Now, I really have nothing to say. Well, except-
But as it turns out, my friends, out in the Twitterverse are way more capable than I can ever be in describing the other side (okay, most part) of Indian weddings. So, shall we?
Logging in Facebook these days is like entering a photo studio… wedding, engagement, reception, sangeet, candid honeymoon, pre wedding, post wedding shoots, baby showers ugh

2. Who can argue that, now?
Another winter, another round of shaadis, and another round of pre wedding shoots.

3. *raises hand in agreement*
A place where fat aunties judge other fat aunties and unmarried people while they're overstuffing their plates with free food. #indianweddings

4. The story of every Indian wedding.
Time spent at #IndianWeddings
Getting ready 50%
Taking photos/selfies 30%
Dancing & singing 15%
Attending wedding rituals 5%

5. Can I tag people? No? Ok.
Some weddings are scarier than their pre-wedding shoots.

6. Ugh. EVERY TIME.
I hate Indian weddings where I'm just saying hi to random cousins and uncles I don't know

7. A concept that will never see the light of the day.

10. Sorabh Pant has it all planned, I guess.
Indian weddings are a wonderful exercise.
I really support them.
What else would any of us do post retirement?

11. There should be a federation for this, don’t you think?
Indian aunties at weddings are only good for two things:
1. Taking your seat
2. Asking your age for matchmaking purposes

12. Because DRAMA!
Someone please make a tv show about big fat Indian weddings
— JANKS (@janki_chauhan) December 6, 2017
13. The Latter. Of course, the latter.
not sure whether the purpose of muslim Indian weddings are to celebrate the actual wedding or for the old aunties and uncles to play matchmaker for their children

14. Nope, not without a ‘Sex and all’ joke!
Sex and all is cool…
But have you ever gone through an #IndianWedding without relatives asking you when you're getting married?

15. On another note…
