Wedding Musings

Those who did not attend missed the huge decorated welcome sign at the entrance. The band in their red uniform played different tunes each time to welcome each and every guest – they missed that. The beautiful ladies all decked up walking you to the welcome drink counter and seating you comfortably in the air conditioned hall was a big miss. Once seated, your eyes would be drawn to the stage arrangements with fresh flowers and tassels. Both sides of the stage was decorated with all kinds of shiny things -what the bride will be taking with her to her new home to start her new life. Those who did not attend missed this feast for eyes. The beautiful ladies will appear again and lead you into the dining hall. Had you attended, you would have fainted at the dining hall just by looking at the sheer amount of food varieties being served. Free meals and unlimited buffet with this much variety – you missed it. The two day event was planned so impeccably and attention to details was irrefutable. If you had attended the event on second day also, you would have realized that the stage decor was changed every time the bride changed and matched her wear.

Damn, they missed the whole affair!

Those who attended were awe struck at the scale of the event itself. They congratulated the organisers in person for such an enjoyable event after repeatedly congratulating them many times in their minds. Guests took multiple servings of food, force fed their kids, suggested their preferences to their friends. The dozens of photographers and videographers capturing every moment did not bother anyone. The musical night was enjoyed by one and all. Most of the people took to the opportunity and danced with the peppy tunes. Many guests noted down the details to incorporate that for their upcoming events. Some of them literally cried out of pain that they couldn’t conduct an event like this. Some of the guests pulled the bride aside and took selfies – they really liked the neck design of the blouse and the pattern of long chain she was wearing. What a neat way to capture that for future reference. Many guests who had not planned initially to attend the second day made some adjustments to their schedule and decided to take part in the festivities.

Its totally worth it!

Those who attended enjoyed everything that was arranged for them dutifully and did not miss much. Oh well…… maybe love, warmth, affection and hospitality of the hosts. But…. who cares? The hosts will have to wade through their albums and videos to see if a particular guest attended the event, because there was no personal interaction. The most important people on the stage dressed up in all gear looked gloomy, uninterested, bored and sleepy. They had arranged beautiful ladies to attend to all your needs. What more can you ask for?
