Bollywood-inspired-destination-Goa-vintage-themed wedding – Is this the first thing that comes to your
mind when you prepare the marriage expectations list? What actually happens is a banquet-hall-surrounded-by-irritating-relativeswedding. Seems like the wedding expectations VS reality is not so alike, after all.

D-Day: Wedding Expectations VS Reality

One of the most prominent marriage myths is that there are realistic marriage expectations. There is nothing like realistic or reasonable marriage expectations and the experienced peeps can relate.

1. The Checklist

Expectations: I have a checklist ready and I am sure everything will go smoothly as discussed.

Reality: Shit! I forgot to mention the tailor’s number on the checklist. Also, how will my jewelry come?

Well, something or the other is always NOT on the checklist or magically disappears when you go through it 100 times.

2. Dress

Expectations: The most beautiful, the flowiest, the sexiest lehnga in the whole wide world. Sabyasachi, maybe?

Reality: The ‘choli’ is fucking tight. How do I even get into this thing? Damn! Should have checked at the tailor.

3. Wedding Destination

Expectations: Destination wedding all the way. Goa? Udaipur? Dreamy AF!

Reality: Udaipur doesn’t fit in the budget. No one agreed for Goa. Paris is far from reality!

Actual destination? The city you stay in.
