Khao piyo aish karo mitro , dil pai kisi da dukhaeo na! And when the tunes echo in the air with the dash of Punjabi energy, what comes to your mind is a perfect picture of a Punjabi-wedding.
There’s no doubt about the fact that Punjabi wedding is the KING of all the type of weddings we attend. A range of delicious food, thumping bhangra beats and eye feast to catch on all around, you simply cannot survive here without wearing your animal spirit on!
Let’s catch a glimpse of five reasons that load Punjabi- weddings with perfect gala time-
- CELEBRATION STARTS ON A HOLY-NOTE~
A few days before marriage, the family keeps the “Akhand Path” for three days for the beautiful and successful married life of the couple. The purity and blessings fills the atmosphere and after three days the path-ceremony ends, followed by ‘guru ka langar’.
- PRE-MARRIAGE SWAGGER~
And then before marriage, we all get into the energetic mode as our significant others pull in from far and wide to add the flavor to the event. All your cousins and relatives set the house on fire with evening- dholak sessions and the tantalizing food. That’s what we call ‘TAPPE’ where all the members have to rock n roll with the beats and rarely stay stable anymore.
- SLEEPLESS NIGHTS WITH FOOD, MUSIC AND COUSINS-
In our busy schedules we hardly get time to catch up with our cousins. This time is probably one of the best package of moments that we collect. The endless gossips and hours of joyous talks give you the most-incomparable pleasure
- MEHENDI KI RAAT~COCKTAIL~
The most awaited event of the whole mammoth celebration is the ‘MEHENDI KI RAAT’. The extravaganza of attires all around , the aroma of Makkhan-loaded food and the tumba-te-dhol surrounds everyone with the zeal. The glitter of the eye-catching dresses fill the whole night with beauty. And, how can we miss on it, the Chivas and Jack Daniel pouring down to everyone’s’ spirit and supplying the all important Bhangra-energy. Remember the nuptial scene in the movie, Vicky Donor- “rum rum rum, o’whiskey.” O Yes! That is what we are talking about!
- WHEN THE PUNJABI-NESS OOZES OUT.
And even before the hangover of the pre-celebration is over, the marriage day comes. Punjabi naturally have a show-off cell in their body which grows manifold during such celebration days. From beautiful jewellery to the humongous plate of sweets, from the grand shervani to the breathtaking lehenga, everything is just shining with the gleam. With ‘babji’s blessings’, the marriage is solemnized in gurudwara followed by lunch in the afternoon. The festivity of dance and the fervour keeps the event alive all throughout. After all, who would like to miss makhani-dal, butter chicken, gulab jamun and the myriad Punjabi tadka that festoons the theme of the very delightful Punjabi weddings?
