Special Moments : Marriage

Today while I was chit chatting with my friend, we realized that both of us have stuff that we bought during marriage and are of no use. Example : Got heavy traditional suits with those stones on it, each one costs more than 10k but I have not wore them even ten times; there are clutches in my closet each one costing more than 3k but have not carried them even 5 times.
Result, I am short of normal casual clothes but still my closet seems full. I have no idea why but people tend to spend lavishly on marriages, on the stuff that you don't even like want but you HAVE to buy because it has to be gifted during marriage ceremonies.

General Observation :
The total estimate of expenditure on a marriage is near by 30 lakhs, out of which 20 lakhs is for booking of palaces and food. 5 over the gifts and shagun you have to give to your in laws and rest on clothes. Can you just imagine, 30 lakhs lavishly spent in a span of 3-4 months. If we think a little logical these 30 lakhs could be used to build a great future of bride and groom instead of spending them over the people,food and clothes *sigh* 
                                      Wish I had the power to change it.

Instead of making marriage a show off business it should be decent one with just close people around. Don't you agree guys ? When will society change their thinking ?

Anyways, though marriage involves lot of tensions and responsibilities; there is other side of it also. Curiosity, excitement, nervousness, romance, love and a completely different new life. I enjoyed every bit of my marriage ceremonies.
Few snapshots of my marriage. I loved my wedding lehenga "Dream Lehnga"

p.s. : I do enjoy marriage ceremonies but I would enjoy more if it does not end up giving tension on mind of bride and groom's parents due to all the society pressure they have to go through.
