12 Unchanging Marks Of A Punjabi Wedding.

No comments :

Did you ever showed up a Punjabi wedding? If not, this is an event you should never miss. Not that other Indian weddings aren’t as enjoyable, each has its own essence.
Here are 12 unchanging marks of a Punjabi wedding.

1. Lavish as ever!

From the venue to the decorations, fashions, lighting and literally the whole lot falls under the category of ‘Lavish’. You can easily spot a Punjabi wedding from 3 blocks away.

2. Dance! Bhangra, Gidda, Sweep-the-floor Naagin Dance, Rel Gaddi Sequence and well, some more dance..

From the kids doing what we think is dance.. the most shy aunties transforming into Punjabi ‘Shakira’s.. even the distant friend of the distant cousin who isn’t distantly aware of who’s wedding he is attending.

Literally everyone!

3. Free Daaru- A ‘little-little’ Peg Sheg and Whisky

The most jam-packed section at the wedding venue – The Bar. You can spot a number of drunken uncles in this area, just in case you are out of sources for entertainment.

4. HE vs. SHE

The overconfident flirting guys that leave no stone unturned to miss a chance..


Versus the Sohni kudiya (girls) who spend hours putting on make-up to take lead in the undeclared beauty war.


5. Over-bearing loud aunties

..and their over-the-top outbursts that are both fun to watch and extremely entertaining. All you need to do is strike a discussion and steady yourself for the time of your life. :P

6. There is no such thing as too much food!

You wouldn’t find less than 10 cuisines lined up, with over 10 varieties of each dish in starters, salads, curds, main course, desserts, snacks, cocktails and the list goes on and on.

Non-Veg being the pride of the wedding

With 80% of the guests lining up to feast on the array of non-veg dishes, leaving the veg section abandoned and deserted.

7. Inquisitive aunties looking for eligible bachelors set them up with their neighbor’s uncle’s cousin’s daughter who they ‘think’ might be of an eligible age.

8. In need of some blessings? Come visit a Punjabi wedding

The never-ending loop of  ‘pairi pona’s might leave you with a sore back. But on the brighter side, you’d have your own collection of exclusive aashirwaads in heavy numbers.

9. A little swearing wouldn’t harm anyone

With happiness comes excitement, and with excitement comes the ‘all-in good-faith-swearing’. It’s the way of expressing love on this happy occasion.

10. A photographer’s Nightmare!

You’d probably see more posers and more pictures clicked here that at the celebrity photo shoot at the Oscars.

11. Judging Aunties everywhere

Every step you take, every move you make. We’ll be watching. Yours faithfully, Judging Aunties Association Of India.

12. Shaguns!  With the right tactics, you can make a buttload of money

You can probably purchase your own car if parents don’t intervene when relatives insist on giving you their token ‘love’ in the form of Shaguns.
A wedding is a celebration of union of two families and a couple that promises each other,
Grow old with me!  The best is yet to be”  ~Robert Browning
