Happy Holi!!!

Happy Holi!!!!!!!!

Saturday, March 23, 2013


The very first words that I wrote on the blog were:

"Kill me and kill me now!

Like an idiot I decided to join MBA earlier this year, and now have 5 months to the wedding and  have exams in couple of weeks!
Well in all fairness when I joined MBA I didnt think I will be getting married this soon."

Well I am married over 3 months now but the dreaded MBA hasn't left me alone. Like a typical Bridezilla I forgot about all things un-weddingy, as a result I couldn't give my 2nd semester exams and now they loom over my head like a knife ready to strike.

I have to give 10 exams in one go! 2nd and 3rd semester!
Although the exams are in June/July I have MAJOR assignment submission going on right now!

And if your wondering why I am blabbering about it on the WEDDING blog...well that's how I started it! So  be ready to read about a LOT of MBA frustration! 

Don't worry you will still get a good dose of wedding stuff too!

Lakme Fashion Week is going on! Lets hope its inspiring for Brides-to-be!

Wedding File 8 : Honeymoon : South Africa!

I started writing about Goa, when I realized that I haven't yet written about South Africa!!
There is sooo much to tell and so little space, don't want to bore you much so will try to be precise...

We booked our tour via Cox and Kings, rather my then-fiance-now-husband booked it as a surprise!  if you have been following the blog you will know why I wasn't involved in the decision making.

It took us 25 hours to reach South Africa, we switched flights in between. It could have taken us less amount of time to reach, but would have cost us the same amount as the whole 11 day trip.

Since we were going back in time with each flight we ended up being served 3 breakfast!!

Cango Wildlife Ranch
See the left bottom picture, one of the tiger cub is called Shahrukh Khan!

Patted a cheetah!!
He was ok when everyone else patted him, but the minute I did right after this picture it turned towards me, the wildlife range people rushed to my side to move me away.
When I fearlessly went to the next cheetah to pat him he roared at me!! Guess cheetah's dont like me much...

Cango Cave, they were super beautiful!

Ostrich Farm
Below Right picture : Yes I am standing on Ostrich eggs! They are the strongest of all eggs.

Sunset Cruise on Knysna Lagoon
This is the one we had most fun on, best feature of the whole trip :)

Betty's Bay

Pictures with everything yellow, in Cape town

Cape town
Got our pictures clicked with a recently married Christian Couple,
 just like they get clicked with Indian bride and groom when they come to India :P
Best Pizza of the trip! Cheese, Basil and Cherry Tomatoes.
Dance performance @ Victoria and Alfred Waterfront

Diamond Factory!

Seal Island in Atlantic Ocean


Welcomed by African dance
Visit to Victoria Falls
We also took a cruise on the Zambezi River

Some of the yummy food we had!
We are eggitarians, so ofcourse eating the local food was a no-no.
Breakfast was at the hotels and not big of an issue since there was always bread, eggs and really good deserts.
Lunch was tit-bits and dinner was good though out.
 We were provided with Indian dinner every day except in Victoria Falls where we had pizza for dinner instead.
Below Right : Popcorn Chocolate, super yum!!

Wedding File 7 : The Next Day

It seemed unfair to me that I let my readers down. After all once all the brides-to-be had finally become brides and entered the new home as a 'Bahu' this blog became a bit irrelevant for them.

This doesn't seem right, after all you have been following the blog of a while now and no longer can you look at it for help, tips or just for a time-pass read.

So today we re-invent this blog a bit, it will still serve the brides-to-be with ideas and inspirations, shop reviews, discounts, exhibitions, skin care and a LOT more.

It will now also include tips and tricks for the New Bride aka the New Bahu, handling the in-laws, setting up the home and dividing the house hold responsibility. A take on both living with in-laws and living without them.

Let the journey begin where we last left it, post Vidaii, in the wee hours of 25th Nov.

The car arrived at the doorsteps of my new home..

My in-laws love everything filmy and everything serial-y. So ofcourse on the day of the wedding when me and the boy arrived home late night (early morning) we were welcomed in with an arti thali, followed by pushing a Kalash by my right foot so that the rice inside it spilled in the house. Next I steeped into a thali of Alta and was asked to walk into my new home.

We walked to the mandir in the house and post that were taken into the living room to sit among numerous relatives. That was probably the most awkward and uncomfortable moment of all, cause you are just sitting there unaware what to do and there are about 20 people staring at you.

Finally to break the ice my youngest 'Devar' (Brother-in-law) preformed a little dance for me on 'yo yo honey singh!' (lol)

We went off to sleep for 2 hours, rather everyone else went off to sleep and I was left to detangle my enormous hair-do, although my MUA was kind enough to not do a lot of back-combing I still had a lot of wrapped gajara around it to unwrap, so by the time I finished it was time to take a bath and get ready for the morning functions and pooja.

We were taken to a near by mandir first by my mother-in-law and along went my 2 devars. After bowing our heads dutifully to all gods we palyed Santi in the mandir complex. 

Santi is a game played between devar and bhabhi. We were both given neem sticks and asked to hit each other thrice. This is an indication that the bhabhi is like a mother to her devar and can reprimand him henceforth. 

By the time we came back home everyone else had woken up and it was time to play the famous Kangna. 

Remember when we tied the kangna on the day of Haldi well it was time for the boy to open the knots using one hand and I got to open his using two hands.

I had less number of knots and he should have been able to open mine quicker but he twisted and turned it so much that everytime he opened one knot he would end up making two more (hahaha)

Next was 'find-the-ring

I had planned to let the boy win this but the whole family said they were on my side, so for them I tried to win, which I did :P but its true the sister responsible for putting in the ring insured it was on my tiny cheating.

Open the Fist: we were suppose to put the ring in our fist and the other person had to try opening it. I was allowed 2 hands while the boy had to use only one hand. (I did break my nails during this!)

Mu Dhikahyi ( See the brides face)

First my hair was Oiled and re-made, I was still wearing my shaadi ki chudiya which were then changed to onces given by my in-laws.

It was time for all the Aunts and other female relatives to gather around and see my face and give gifts. So I did what the Brides used to do in earlier times, put a gungat.

Ofcourse we did have fun with it
This was followed by the devars sitting on my lap and not getting up till they received money.

I was then asked to make Halwa, which I did and ended up putting too much ghee! (Oops)

It was almost 3pm by the time we finished all the games and rasams, it was then when we finally sat down for breakfast!

The Hindi Serial Wedding

With Bollywood going 'Modern' we now have run-away weddings, beach weddings and the 'raat-kay-dayi-bajey' weddings. No longer do we get inspiration from the grand bollywood styles weddings, instead the week wedding concept has tickled down to hindi Serials.

So here are some TV inspiration for the brides to be :

See the jewelry on her shoulder, how about a blouse with those sleeve??

Love her hair!

for the boys

Floral Jewelry...I am not really a big fan of it but a lot of people are opting for this

I have seen this lehenga on a website some where....cant seem to place where...

If you are like me and floral jewelry repels you and you still want it in your wedding then how about a lehenga embellished with flowers??
