Wedding Ceremonies

I had to attend one of my relative’s marriage last week. They are one of my closest relatives and also a good family friends too.

“Sorry!. I’m running with a hectic project schedule, I couldn’t attend the function”, I simply avoided their invite.

Project schedule is just a reason,I gave to them for not attending the function. The truth is, I’m not interested to attend marriages.

I always loved attending weddings when I was a Child! Weddings meant running around the house with all your brothers, cousins, new shining clothes, Sweets , Celebrations…. I would be the most excited kid around, because that was the time where I can meet all my relatives and it was almost like a get-together!!

Ask me now to attend a relative's wedding and I ll definitely say “No”.

Now wedding has become like a market where you sell out all your best breed horses. Most of the aunties are looking out for a boy, so they can get their daughter married ASAP before she finds someone for herself :-). They just keep observing the boys out there like some secret talent show!

Going there would finally make us to realize that we are growing OLD.

----------------

As for me, The best part of the weddings are: you are all dressed up well, looking out for some good looking girls in the crowd, and if you happen to notice one, then feeling happy that the wedding was worth attending after all :-)!!
