Getting married is an exciting milestone but if you're getting married to a Marwari, things can get interesting. And there's more to Marwaris than money and huge families! They might be stereotyped but they're a friendly, warm and welcoming bunch. And if you've dated your partner before the shaadi, you already know this. They don't just have big pockets but also big hearts.
And if you're going to become a part of a big fat Marwari family, know that they're vibrant people who value and love their culture. This means that your shaadi functions will include loads of colours, HUGE celebrations and will be a lot more fun than you'd ever imagine. Plus there'll be delicious food and more sweets than you can handle.
So, here are a few things that will definitely happen when you tie the knot with your Marwari partner.
Marwaris love mithai and you're going to not just see a large variety of sweets but you'll also be fed more sweets than you'd have ever imagined. And there's no way you can get away without a sugar rush because a shaadi without the endless donas of mithai is incomplete for them.
Bahu ho ya beti, Marwari's love pampering them like princesses and that includes loads of shopping. They will pamper you with all kinds of clothes, jewellery and cash. And the clothes they get you won't just be pretty and colourful but there will be more variety than you've ever seen including bandini, gota patti, leheriya and whatnot. You'll also be treated like a VIP and gifted loads of jewellery because investment hi hai na!
The best place to find a rishta is a Marwari wedding and all your friends and cousins of marriageable age will probably get a proposal thanks to the aunties and their network of rishtas. So, we suggest you tell your friends to brace themselves because cupid might strike at any moment.
You're going to spend your Shaadi sober AF! And there will be no non-veg. Marwaris have some ground rules and it includes no alcohol and no chicken. So, it's best if you let your friends and loved ones know well in advance
There's going to be more khana than you can handle at the wedding. A large number of yummy dishes and every dish is going to be more delicious than the previous one. So, you're probably going to put on all that weight you lost to fit into your lehenga.
Marwaris take sangeet seriously and each and every one of them is going to prepare for their performance. Their sangeet function is going to be eventful and as dreamy as the ones you see in Bollywood films. Marwari sangeet nahi dekha toh kuch nahi dekha! We suggest you start practising all those dance steps if you want to win the dance competition.
All in all, Marwari weddings are THE BEST and the families are welcoming and warm. They’re the perfect mix of fun and traditional, and you’ll probably have the most adorable in-laws ever!
