yeaaah like the whole sita/ravan/ram thing and the agnipariksha and all that stuff? concerned about how that’s all going to play out
i’m no joke, sans bullshit, inviting u to mine!!!!!!
aahh! I wish I could have invited you to my sister’s wedding,you’d would have loved it! Especially when the bride & groom see each other for the 1st time in the mirror under a veil! I love that rasm. & the amount of fresh flowers on her! nostaligia!!
aww yes that rasm is so beautiful! i’ve always wanted to see it in person ever since I heard about it for the first time :)
all the bengali muslim brides i know wore red or a red/gold combo lool
ooh a red/gold combo sounds really pretty!
i really want to go to a muslim wedding sometime, I’ve got a lot of Muslim friends from undergrad and they post all these pictures of weddings they’re going to and they look so beautiful!
i’ve def seen bengali muslims wear sarees for their weddings
Is there a specific color that’s a more traditional choice? Like I know in the middle east white is a much more popular color than it is in Pakistan or India, but that’s about all I know, with the exception of knowing that red is also a popular color choice
if it was bollywood-themed, she’d definitely wear mehendi. but yeah literally all the customs/ traditions nowadays are ripped off of bollywood which is sad (i.e. the kids will dance at the holud [do you have this custom] to bollywood songs).
yeah we do have gaye holud but I’m not sure when it is/if there are kids involved (haven’t been to a wedding since I was 12, which was…12 years ago, yikes)
I just love bengali weddings so much because i feel among all the regional weddings, i feel as though bengali weddings are more bare and minimal and sometimes that minimal screams so much more elegant and sophisticated?
yeah, we don’t really have as much pomp and circumstance, do we? tbh though I really would like a sangeet, I feel like as elegant and sophisticated as we are, we are lacking in the fun factor a lot sometimes, haha! (though as an introvert that would probably work in my favor, lol)
it’s made me cry multiple times
it’s going to mess me up, isn’t it?
awww i’ve always thought topors were cool but u know what, you do you bb
hahaha i want to like them but i see the little puffy balls dangling and it’s like a cake on your head and I just can’t get over it :’)
hahha yeah i don’t believe they have any openings at the moment
