Indian weddings are famous all around the world. They are known for their glamour are their beauty and there long celebrations. Lucky for me I am in India during wedding season (there are only certain times of the year that are good luck to get married). And even luckier for me I was able to go to a wedding last night! Let me set the scene for you. We have our host dad drop us off in this area of “farms” which are just wide-open grassy areas that are only used for weddings. We pass by several before we get to the one we were invited too. The doorway is covered with lights, flowers and beautiful cloth. When we pass through the doorway we realize how huge of an open space it is yet it is all filled with food or activities for the guests. This wedding was almost like a carnival theme. There was a cotton candy stand, men in cowboy hats making ice cream and even a bounce house. There was an extremely long table filled with amazing Indian food, where I of course went back for seconds. There was a pasta table where men would make pasta for you and a naan table where men were throwing the dough into a oven and pulling it out fresh for the guests. The whole area was covered with beautiful lighting decorations and red and yellow cloth. Now mind you, our group stuck out like nobody’s business. I had two separate men come up and ask me who invited us and I had to explain to them that yes even though we were the only white people there and looked totally out of place, we were invited. After getting over the fact that I would be stared at and whispered about the whole time I was there, I went around and tried all the little appetizers placed all round the area. They were all wonderful! I have no idea what anything was but the India spices made them all amazing. After eating way too much we decided to stand by the dance floor because let me tell you, these little Indian children knew how to dance. After standing there for a little while, this adorable Indian girl and her friends came up and introduced themselves, asked if we could be friends and then asked if we would dance with them which of course we didn’t hesitate and ran onto the dance floor. It was so much fun! After a few songs the adorable little girl pulled us aside to tell us we looked beautiful and we were great dancers! I wanted to be like “can we be best friends forever?” Sadly we had to leave at 11 and the actual ceremony doesn’t start till 1. Keep in mind the groom was on a horse with the family and wedding party dancing around him going through the streets all day long and this was the third day of the celebration! When we left we saw the bride in her Lehenga…. It was GEORGOUS! Red and covered in jewels! I want that as my wedding dress! But I don’t know if I want an Indian wedding because it is all about the man and I defiantly like that American weddings are all about the bride. But who knows maybe I will have my wedding set up like an Indian wedding, I would love to celebrate for a few days!
