Big Fat Wedding Vs Small Thin Marriage

My wedding was a small affair and nothing like all those big fat weddings that we usually call pinterest-worthy and instagram-worthy. But, I still chose to write about it and share details with you guys because I want my people to know that you don't need to have a grand wedding to talk about it. It's completely fine if you go for a small scale function. 

A wedding is the celebration, when two people unite and begin a new journey together. It absolutely has nothing to do with how many functions you have, which designer you wear and what venue you choose. 

My wedding to me was about celebrating my relationship, celebrating the company of my boy for lifetime and of course celebrating an end to all those inquiries that those aunties used to make about when I am getting married. I had small functions in which I and my boy enjoyed our family gathering, laughter, fun and unlimited selfies. 

I am not writing this because I couldn't afford multiple functions and that's why I want to bash all those rich people who have resources and money to do all that. Rather, I am writing this because I think that people have the right to celebrate their wedding the way they want. They've got resources so they'd do whatever they can to make their day memorable. What I want to say is that we should just not let their grand celebrations influence us. 

Wedding is a personal affair and no one has this right to troll others because they are having a grand wedding or ridicule others because someone's opting for a low key event. We should be confident and comfortable in who we are. If we are rich, we shouldn't seek others approval and attention by flaunting our wealth; on the contrary, if we can't afford the luxury, we shouldn't feel inferior or make unreasonable demands from our parents and guardians. 

Wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event (some people like abundance for them they'd like to experience four times in a single life) and the only thing we should care about is happiness. If having a bridal shower on a cruise makes you happy and you've got resources, go for it; or in another case, if you have limited resources and you cannot afford all these things, don't let this situation influence you negatively. 

Celebrate what you have and stay grateful for the companionship of your partner. This also helps you in starting your new life on a positive note.

  1. Finding this place was the best thing that happened to us after the owner of our previously booked venue refused to answer any of our calls or emails after giving us completely stupid excuses. The coordinator at New York wedding venues did a wonderful job.
