February is the wedding season and every evening is either a sangit or a mehandi, ashaadi or a reception. In the olden days there was one simple ceremony followed by a modest reception.
Today, the bride and the groom have bachelor and cocktail parties before and after the wedding. Most of them go for destination weddings and the party continues inside the swimming pool.
The wedding wardrobe not just of the bride and the groom but connected friends and close relatives is a cause of major stress because it means organizing so many outfits, accessories, jewellery, handbags and foot wear.
During all these special occasions nobody is concentrating on the ceremony or the bride. Instead, all of us are focused on themselves - what they are wearing and how they are looking.
The sangit is the night of enchantment because it is a platform to showcase your good look/ costume and talent.
And all wedding at home begin with a kalash so happy celebrations to all.
