Wedding Season

It was always the cooler months, usually. September-October to April-May, fall-winter-spring, so that nobody would melt into a puddle of frizzy hair and sweated-out summer suits. Then people decided to get married in the summer too so that relatives from America could attend, so the groom could get back to work (usually in America) or just to torture random relatives and friends. Summer Weddings, AAIEEE!

But that was before the air-conditioned tent came around.

An air-conditioned tent! Who’da thought? Previously vague stories from Saudi Arabia- rich oil Sheiks can afford everything, an AC-wala tent is probably chicken feed for them- they are now a lovely, cool reality! I just came back from a valima and the gorgeous pink chandeliered tent was to-tal-ly yummily cold! Hooray! What fun to get all togged up and sleekly blow-dried and not die of heatstroke when a fmaily makes use of their massive lawn, albiet in July! Of course, this also means that shaadi season is going to be all year round now, but methinks we can live with that :)

    Its random torture thingy for sure! There can’t be any other reason :>

    p.s: its easy for girls to say “me thinks we can live with that” coz they dont have to stand at the reception (outside AC wala hall), wearing a SUIT with a zabardasti wali smile on the face.. n actually melting .. heh :D

    if it’s a hall then the baahir is also usually AC-wala, but i’ll give you the point; floaty chiffon saris can’t compare to icky trousers in 45 degree heat….bwahahaaa

    What a waste of money our weddings are. Its almost criminal (not almost certainly criminal). Mr Javed seems to be a mughal shahzada for wanting to have his wedding in shalamar garden. Superb idea for show off.
