13 Things That Happen At Every Gujarati Wedding

Weddings are a grand affair, anywhere in the world. Gujarati weddings, however, come with a flavor of their own. These weddings are different yet same to all the weddings in the country. If you ever attend a Gujarati wedding, apart from noticing how colourful it is, you will also notice a few things that happen at every Gujarati wedding. They are:

#1. There will always be people who do not belong to either side and are crashing the wedding just for the food. That is the only reason they are there, after all.

#2. Bride’s friends will check out the groom’s friends. A silent competition as to who is more fun is always going on.

#3. If you are young and available, all you have to do is dress up and attend one of the weddings. You will surely find someone.

#5. There will be someone or the other debating about who is better – the girl’s side or the guy’s side.

#12. There will always be aunties who are trying to find out what gifts the bride’s family is giving the bride. You will see them asking almost anyone.

#13. Gujarati wedding and no garba!? Our weddings are incomplete without garba, and we can do them anywhere and at any time. Yeah, we can do garba moves on Cheap Thrills too.
