Spring, summer or winter, the best season in India is the wedding season! Getting all decked up, gorging on delicious food and having no other responsibilities, being a wedding guest is definitely all about getting the best of this world. Here are 10 reasons why wedding guest fun is absolutely the best!
1. The party begins wayyy before!
We are talking bachelorettes, sangeet rehearsals, mehendi and youngsters’ nights. It’s like several mini-parties thrown right before the mega bash!
2. Wedding guests are royalty!
Remember Ranveer Singh crashing weddings in Band Baaja Baraat? Can we even blame him? Wedding guests are treated like royalty in India. We are welcomed, fed and entertained. I’d be a wedding guest at my own wedding for this!
3. Wining and dining will go on as long as the wedding itself
Vegetarian or non-vegetarian, it does not matter. Food and drink of the very best kind will be served at every wedding function. And you are expected to hog because your hosts will keep on asking if you ate, “Properly!”
4. The wedding functions are our runway
Some of our most fashion-forward ethnic wear sees the light of day during weddings. Mastani shararas, here we come!
We love creating a complete ruckus while dancing in the baraat. It’s one of the perks of being from the boys’ side!
5. Hum to baraati hain!
6. Instagram queen for a day!
Getting all dressed up and taking selfies with the bride, bae and everyone else is a legit wedding ritual, guys. It is the wedding guest who truly heralds the wedding season!
What’s a wedding without some light flirting with the ladkewale boys? Competing during joota chupai and then showing them our moves on the dance floor- it’s all part of the fun.
7. Eyeing the cute guys from the ladkewale side
8. Awkward encounters with relatives turn hilarious. Pretty soon.
The same Auntyji who asked us about OUR marriage early in the evening will be showing off her Baby Doll moves on the dance floor later. And just like that, everything gets super hilarious.
9. Speaking of dance, we’re the party starters!
Bollywood or hip-hop, weddings are that one time when we’ll dance to anything. From John Legend to Honey Singh, we mean absolutely anything!
We might be working and living in other cities, but a wedding brings the #GirlSquad back together for an epic party!
