They may not admit it, but most girls already have an idea about what they want their wedding day to look like. But no matter how prepared you are, once things get real and the date is set, those pre-wedding months are going to be the most exciting, overwhelming yet scary months of your life.
As the bride, you tend to experience a whirlwind of conflicting emotions…some of which are really pleasant but then there are some others that are straight up crazy! But don’t stress, you’re not the only one. Every girl goes though this experience at some point and they all have at least a few ridiculous thoughts…some of which are actually quite funny!
Don’t believe us? Take a look at some of these hilarious thoughts that most brides have before getting married:
- 1. Is this for real or am I being punked?
- 2. So this means I wont be single anymore?
- 3. What do I call him once we’re married?
- 4. Do I have a weird smile?
- 5. What if I have sweaty armpits?
- 6. Will I fit into my outfits? Have I gained weight?
- 7. How do I pee in that outfit?
- 8. Should I cry?
1. Is this for real or am I being punked?
This usually happens within the first few days after the proposal. You’re so overwhelmed that it all seems unreal. The funny part is this might actually drive you crazy enough to pinch yourself real hard and double check if it’s all really happening.
2. So this means I wont be single anymore?
It’s strange why this question even comes up, but it’s also amazing how common this thought is. Well, to answer your question… yes, that’s how marriage usually works!
3. What do I call him once we’re married?
For some reason, marriage encourages the need for a new pet name for your husband. Your usual thoughts will be “Should I call him hubby, baby, or darling?” It sounds really funny now, but if it’s important to you…go for it!
4. Do I have a weird smile?
Another strange pre-wedding concern brides tend to have is “What if I smile weirdly especially in pictures! Those’ll haunt me for the rest of my life! But how can I not smile at my own wedding? Maybe I should practice some more in front of the mirror!”
5. What if I have sweaty armpits?
The fear of sweaty armpits will forever haunt women dressed in heavy traditional attire. As for you little bride, we don’t even want to imagine the mayhem in your head. Although this is a legit concern…you have to acknowledge the humour here!
6. Will I fit into my outfits? Have I gained weight?
Fitting into your wedding outfits is probably the biggest stress in a bride’s life. From the moment you pick out your wedding sari / lehenga, till the time you actually wear it on D-day, you’ll be wondering “I really hope that blouse fits me properly. What if that lehenga is too long…I hope I don’t trip. What if it tears when I sit. What if I’ve gained weight? OMG have I gained weight?”
7. How do I pee in that outfit?
Every bride’s biggest nightmare on her big day…”who carries the weight of that dress when nature calls?” It hilarious, yet a very real concern. Well, you better call your bestie and make sure she’s there on time to do the needful!
8. Should I cry?
This one’s our favourite! We Indian girls have grown up watching Bollywood movies where every wedding is followed by a sad and dramatic bidai ceremony where the bride’s emotions suddenly spin a full 360 degrees and she instantly goes from happy and cheery to a bawling fountain of tears. So, it’s only natural that the question would cross your mind.
See…you’re not in this alone. There are other brides out there with these bizarre thoughts too! So stop panicking already! Take a deep breath and put those crazy thoughts aside…everything’s going to be just fine!
