My Indian Wedding Experience

My Indian Wedding Experience

As you may recall if you read my earlier post, I had promised I would share my Indian wedding experience with you by the end of the week. Unfortunately, I got busy yesterday because we had like eight guests and I had some work to do too. So I ended up not posting last night. But I wanted to share those pictures and kept them ready so here is my entire Indian wedding experience.

Ps: for those of you that don’t know my cousin recently got married and I was a part of the wedding and wanted to share those experiences here. Not my own wedding lol.

Mehndi/Henna Night

Mehndi Henna Night

This was my look for the wedding night. My bathroom has weirdly good lighting so I took a few pictures to share with you guys. I don’t normally wear pink but this was a dress my aunt had bought for me when she went to India. And I ran out of cute Indian dresses to wear so I ended up wearing this one for the mehndi night.

For those of you that don’t know, mehndi is a type of Indian art and is like semi-permanent tattoos I guess. This is how mine turned out:

This is me at the party not staring at a hot guy I ran into…

Mehndi Night

The mehndi night was nice but they had barely any vegan food options so I kind of came home hungry. And the I don’t know what type of mehndi they used but it made my skin burn and peel which isn’t a great sign. I was shocked since I’ve done mehndi my whole life and this has never happened before.

Pre-wedding Ceremony

So, we have this pre-wedding ceremony before the wedding. I’m not sure what it is or why we do it if I’m being honest. My mum already explained it to me and I’m scared to ask again lol. This is a pretty important ceremony and this was my outfit. Sorry for the tiny image but I had to crop out my family. All of whom specifically told me they didn’t want to be on my blog lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ Anyway, this was my favourite picture from the entire wedding. I look cute and the outfit is really nice. Shoutout to my cousin for taking this picture of us. He has an instagram business page you can follow, please do by clicking here.

Meet And Greet

The meet and greet was actually the biggest event in the wedding. Although it wasn’t too big of a wedding and none of the events were that big, this had about 900 people coming. And it was pretty much a pre-wedding dinner where the family and friends and everyone gets together to celebrate. I asked my uncle to take a picture of the family and he did a horrible job lol. This is my least favourite picture of me. But I always keep it real with you guys so I’m sharing it. Please ignore my lipstick that decided to take a trip during dinner.

Meet And Greet

The Wedding

The wedding itself finally came. Very early in the morning. By this point I was feeling gross and bloated from all the oily food and that’s why I look awful in all the pictures. But you know what? It is what it is. Sometimes I look amazing and other times I don’t. Life goes on. Anyway here are the images.

Indian Wedding Outfits

By the way, my mum custom made this entire outfit for me from scratch!

Conclusion

What can I say about my Indian wedding experience. Well, I hope not to be part of one any time soon. It takes way too much time and energy. Wishing the couple the best though, lol. And at least I met some new cousins because of the wedding which was nice.

Sorry there aren’t more images but I was just trying to be in the moment most of the time. Also I was so sleepy my brain was barely functioning.

  1. You look lovely Pooja๐ŸŒธ I know Indian wedding are not for everyone because it can get too much and you just want to go home. But I am hope you made some great memories ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. You look gorgeous! I have been to an Indian wedding too. I wasn’t in one, but I can relate to your uncertainty about what’s going on sometimes

  3. You look lovely and your post is delightful. I have misty memories of several lifetimes in India, male and female, and in one I desired a red sari to be married in but something prevented that happeningโ€ฆ I remembered that one when I saw a beautiful red sari in a thrift shop and brought it home where it is cherished as a wish finally come true. Iโ€™m old now with a marriage long behind me and two wonderful grown up children in a very different culture so the red sari stays in an old suitcase. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅฐ

    1. That’s so interesting and I guess this lifetime worked out differently for you but as long as you’re happy that’s all that matters ๐Ÿ˜Š
