WEB DESK: Five to seven days of non-stop celebration with close family and friends multiplies the joy of Pakistani weddings. But when the same happiness becomes a competition of who spends the most money— the celebration loses its sprituality.
Here are 5 things I hate about Desi weddings. Do you agree?
1. Mayon, Mehndi, Dance Night
Basically its just one event, but nowadays it is spread over three days. Families from both sides hire the services of caterers, elaborate wedding halls and expensive photgraphers. There are horrible dances on songs like Baby doll and Sheela ki Jawani.
2. Joota Chupai, Doodh Pilai
Such a stupid rasam. Why would you want to steal someone’s shoes. The siblings of the bride steal the groom’s shoes and hide them. The groom pays thousands get them back. Groom, you can easily buy new shoes with the money you just gave away.
3. Food After 12am
Literally I don’t understand what are they waiting for, For the people to leave the wedding hall? And when after 12 when food is served, everyone fills their plates as fast as they can and as full as they can. The worst thing is they don’t eat half of it.
4. Annoying Movie Maker
The worst thing about any wedding is the most annoying and confusing “Movie Wale Uncle” who never knows what he should actually do.
“beta idhr daikhen, Beta udhr Daikhen, Beta smile krain”– and you end up looking poker faced in all of the pictures.
5. Rukhsati Or Rona Dhona
Isn’t it supposed to be a happy moment? But no Pakistanis never make anything easy.
