April 24, 2013 9:11am CST
Hi Friends!! Last sunday one of my friend got married. I was wearing saree for the first time in my life, (as all my friends decided to wear it). I never saw such wedding in my life. The time given was 5.45pm but till 9.00pm there was no sign of bride or groom. Atlast they came at 9.15pm. Everything went well for sometime. There was long queue for dinner. All of my friends we starving including me. We were already late for home. I didnt feel like having dinner because there was no one to manage it properly. Half of the food was spilling out. I dont know whether they were testing our patience?? Time was not at all managed properly and i hate that... Have you ever gone through such things??

That was really horrible wedding. I guess they got late because they might have missed the 'rahu kaalam' or 'rahu timing'. Did they apologize for being ate? I mean they must have told the reason for being late at their own wedding..lol Talk about being on time on other occassions..but own wedding? That was ridiculous! Anyways, as per you the management was not up to the mark, so i guess you got lucky that at least food was served on time..

Nothing was on time Nitin and they didnt even apologise. We all had our dinner at around 11-11.15pm. All of us were very hungry. They dont have Muhurat and all in their weddings. I saw such wedding for the first time in my life.

I went to my niece's first wedding...and her second. The first one was worse. The brides either mom or aunt was running late (can't remember which off hand want to say aunt she had something my niece or the bride needed) therefore holding up the whole wedding. The preacher was starting to get annoyed. The groom is a big guy and wearing a shirt that isn't helping him look his best. It was just a polo shirt and I am not sure whether or not he had on jeans or dress pants. She had a nice dress but it just didn't really suit the rest of the wedding. Then my niece's other grandparents from her moms side came in. The grandpa was wearing grease stained clothes like he had just gotten done working on a car. the grandma came in wearing sweats that said kiss my bass on the back. I felt over dressed for the occasion. I only stopped into the reception with my mom to drop off her gift. From what I heard people ended up getting sick after eating the food, because it was all home made by people that don't have super clean cooking habits. My mom and I and most of our side of the family went out to eat after. The second waiting wasn't as bad. It was Hawaiian themed. They had the wedding at the same place the reception was held. They were married by an ordained minister who was a friend. All of the food looked like it was cheaply threw together all of the soda came from the dollar tree. Again my side of the family all met up and went out to eat after the wedding. My brother had a wedding that over all wasn't bad, but one of the grooms men kept passing out at the alter while my brother and his wife were giving their vows. That made it a little difficult for them. That was the only thing that took away from the wedding.

Yeah, lol. I was sitting there glad that no one of real significance was there knowing I was related to the bride. It was pretty bad. I don't know why she even bothered with a wedding the second time around. She should have saved herself the pain. It wasn't hard to out do the first one. I didn't really dress up much for the second wedding. We think the lack of class comes from her mothers side of the family. My side of the family was pretty much all sitting there hoping that it would end soon so we could leave. It was just embarrassing to be there. I think the term is redneck wedding. It is the only wedding I have ever been to that was that bad. I think if I get married I'm going to save myself and everyone else the pain and just not have a wedding I'll just get a justice of the peace or something and not make a big thing of it. It's just not worth the money to me to have a wedding especially when I don't like all of that attention on me.

Indeed you are right in saying it ...very horrible wedding ! Oh my how come it was so disorganized from start to finish when in fact this is just a once in a lifetime celebration. A person is being married once only , there it should be the most beautiful , amazing , meaningful wedding. This is a solemn activity therefore it must be very organize but as you have describe it . Like a play of a high school theater show , full of lapses and generally a flop affair. Wedding is a well planned celebration. Only the best are done here ! That is why those about to be married are not into rush so the wedding would be the most meaningful ,solemn celebration. If the couple are not prepared yet better don't set exact wedding date , have more preparation because invited people expect nothing but the best .

Hi Nandita. It was not that good. I was sweating as there was not even a single fan. Didnt even had a place to walk properly as all of them were rushing here and there. I was so excited as i was wearing it for the first time but this wedding ruined everything. :( I think cotton sarees are manageable.. Thanks for responding

I have attended many weddings but this was the worst. All that i have attended were arranged systematically.

whoa, what was that?their schedule is not managed properly. I have attended a wedding ceremony but everything is fine and properly coordinated. Anyway the time that both of them came was very late.Why they are late?I know that the groom and bride are informed and oriented about the time and place of their wedding.

That is horrible, your friend is not cool to make you all waited for so long in her wedding for dinner, and can go so wrong in the time for everyone to attend her ceremony, it is just bad on her part to put you all through such an ordeal whole night, i think you have every right to get angry and piss off at her, obviously she is unable to manage her own affair well and properly in this most important part of her life, may be she is testing all your patient for the last time before she leave her single life behind like you said; i am totally speechless now!

Yes, I have gone to a wedding that was not up to par at all. It was a cousins wedding and everything was late including the bride. It was hours before the meal. We too were starving and couldn't wait to eat. Then when the food came it was horrible. In fact, after the wedding we went to a restaurant to eat. I like music that you can dance too but that wasn't happening either.

Seems like you have gone through a horrible wedding indeed. Things like these happen in mainly South Indian marriages... I've been to north India and marriages there have treated me well... In South India, Keralite marriages were also kind of decent in their food services. It's the Tamil ones that really kicked my behind. Almost same situation as yours; except Im a man- so no saree, plus the people present there were wrestling for the food. I've been to horrible marriages. And I always try to stay away from the same. Better safe than sorry... By the way how did the 'first time in saree' serve you through the impatient times? Regards, Ajith.

Hi Ajith. It was not that good as i was not able to handle it properly. At some point my friends had to hold me from both the side. Lol.. I was so irritated that i was least bothered about my saree.. Thanks for responding

I can't agree more with your point! It was very horrible, wedding schedule is hard to follow, it always later than the plan. I attended my classmate's wedding before as a "sister friend",to be this kind of friend, I had to set barricade games for the process of the groom met the bride, welcomed all the guests even I didn't know who they are. The most tired thing was I need to stand almost all day long, followed up the bride to help her greeting all the guests while they have diner, that means I barely had nothing to eat and tired. I understand your feeling. It just one time and only one time in the couple's life, the traditional thing we have to apply to,but for other aspert, it is funny too, coz through the wedding, I could meet other friends I haven't met for a long time, it was a big reunion too. Have a good time then.

Hi, Really it was very horrible wedding. I hate such people who don't value the time. They don't bother about others time. It is very strange that there was no management. I also experienced this very few times. But not horrible like your experience. thank you for the response.

Actually they didnt value peoples time. I was so happy that i was about to meet my friend after a long time. But because of this I think she should learn to manage time first

It was my first experience. I have attended many weddings. They all were good. But this one was worst. I felt like running away from there.Lol

Well wedding receptions should be managed systematically but at times things go awry due to some unavoidable circumstances. I too had one such experience where waiting period was too long and was frustrated but I got to know that there was some time management error from the event management company that organized the wedding. So I feel we should be patient.

The wedding was managed by their family itself. Nothing was systematic. The bride and groom were so busy that they didnt even bothered to meet the guests properly

I am sorry to hear you had a horrible wedding reception . However, my experienced wasn't that bad as compared with yours. We attended my hubby's freind's - Indian wedding day and it was held in the night as well. There was not much of a delay and we did witness the whole wedding ceremony procedures from begining until the end. The only problem was dinner time. We needed to queue for some time in order to get the food. Overall, it is a nice wedding and our first time attending an Indian wedding dinner .
