My Veere Di Wedding Happened on 23rd Feb-2017. Although i am quite late in posting this post. As this post was lying in my draft for long and always remained incomplete for some reason or the other. However as we say its better late than never, so i am finally posting this now 🙂
My Veere Di Wedding means My Brother’s Wedding. Indian weddings have always been a topic to talk about as they are so vibrant, loud and filled with loads of drama and yes, of course rituals.
Keep on reading this post as i am going to share all the fun and the ceremonies happened during my Brother’s wedding.
My Veere Di Wedding was something for which I was most excited as veere di wedding is actually a chance for a sister to enjoy even more than her own wedding. So yes, i did enjoy every single second of the wedding and i will reminiscence those memories through this blog post.
Once the date was announced, I couldn’t wait to shop my heart out! We had approximately 6 months from the time of Rokka. Rokka is a kind of mini engagement in Punjabi’s culture. During that period, we explored almost all the markets like Karol Bagh, Lajpat Nagar, Chandni Chowk, Rajouri Garden for shopping. Lastly I finalized 3 dresses for myself from a Designer Boutique in Punjabi Bagh “Reeti Arneja” and got customized 2 dresses from a local boutique in my locality.
Alike every other sister, I too wanted My Veere Di Wedding to be a great memory. So I planned to hire a choreographer in which Urbanclap worked as a savior and helped me in getting not only the best even they helped me in getting the competitive rates too. All my cousins- Anand Chawla, Vaibhav Chawla, Anmol Chawla and Aashna Chawla including the Bride (Charu Butta) and Groom (Akshay Arora) and of course me 😉 we all practiced and worked hard for around 10 days. It was truly not easy; I still remember how I used to coordinate with all of them through whatsapp groups. As everyone had busy schedules, because of their office, business, college, exams, kid, family but luckily we all managed it with a smile. I still remember my cousins crazy dance steps :p but I truly appreciate and respect their time , efforts and sincerity they put in during the late evening practice sessions. And which always ended with pizza parties ;). However, poor me who used to stand with an empty plate in hand, as I was at the edge of reducing my post-delivery weight.
I also planned for a Pre-wedding shoot for my brother and we planned to use those pictures in a wedding invitation.
Finally the function dates came closer and it all started with a ceremony called “Kirtan” This ceremony was specifically planned to thank God for everything he has given us so far and to request him to shower his blessings on the Bride and the Groom. I wore an Indian suit and my brother and my husband they both wore Coordinated Silk Kurta Pyjama. Unfortunately, I couldn’t able to find any of those pictures.There were total 4 events in all- Kirtan, Engagement/Sagan, Ladies Sangeet, Wedding. So I kept 5 dresses in total for myself. I kept one dress as a spare, which I utilized during Pheras 🙂
