SOME FUNNY THINGS THAT HAPPENS AT EVERY PAKISTANI WEDDING
Winter has just started and so is the wedding season. Wedding in Pakistan is grand, festive with lots of warmth, fun and excitement. The Pakistani shadi is in itself a complete package with some crazy and funny rituals, colorful decorations, music, dance,pictures, multiple events, variety of people that attend the shadi like the worried aunty who has come on a rishta hunt, girls showing off their designer dresses, the ones who has just come for food and what not.
Now let’s have a look on the funny things that happen at every desi Pakistani wedding;
1.THE WEDDING CARD
The wedding card is the main thing which starts the main conflict and the funny situation. The card is to invite the guests at your function and the card is incomplete without the names of the entire generations of the family under RSVP because if you have forgotten to include the name of any one of them then surely a world war would begin. The second issue regarding the card is relatives expect the parents to give the card personally to them, otherwise get ready to listen the traditional dialogue “ betay key shadi hai tu demagh he nai mil rahay card daynay khud ana chayay tha!!”
2.THE PHUPHO RAMA
No matter whatever you do to make her happy throughout the wedding, there is always something that bothers the PHUPHO and she is always discontent either with someone or with something and you often found her murmuring something to herself.
3.THE BAYCHAIN TODDLER
There always some kids who has just come to practice all their acrobatic moves right on the stage and when they are asked to step down they quietly sit beside the bride and photo bomb all the wedding pictures and some kids are always ready to dance just in front of the stage.
There are always some guys nobody knows from whose side they have come and nobody dares to ask them who invited them because they might turn out to be from the other side and they enjoy the event as they are having their own friend’s wedding.
There are people who can never leave shadi ka khana and they set their eyes fixed on the dishes as soon as they arrive the venue. They try everything that is on the menu and take so much food in a small plate that this is the last time they are having food. The hall becomes a war land when the dinner is announced.
This is the man you can have just in front of your face once you try to take a big chunk of the yummy chicken piece from your plate. From nowhere he just come and clicks you when you are in some awkward situation.
7.THE RISHTA HUNTERS
The rishta hunting aunties get a super awesome chance to hunt for the perfect matches and they become super investigators. They notice each and everything from the entrance, to the dresses and ending at how much salami a family has given.
Yes !there is always someone you find as a complete clone of the bride with the same dress , jewelry and preparation. Either she would be the bride or groom’s sister or a cousin recently married who has donned on her bridal dress and decided to be a bride once again.
9.THE UNHAPPY RELATIVES
A photo on the stage is a must. There are some relatives who get sad and mad when nobody invites them to the stage for the picture.
10.THE DESI GUESTS
Yes, at every wedding there is always a family or a person who comes to attend the shadi from abroad. They are treated and taken care more than the bride or groom. They steal all the lime light from the couple.
11.THE JHOTA CHUPPAI
The joota becomes so special that the groom himself gets lost whether to take the shoe back or run away as it is. The sarcastic smile on the dulhan’s face says it all, ”be cautious my dear hubby! This is just a trailer film abhi baqi hai”.
The bridal poses and the never ending photo shoot is the most annoying part. The funny poses are the best laughter therapy one would get after years of their marriage.
