This Mumbai Couple Had A “Game Of Thrones” Sangeet and we love it!

Shaurya and Sanjana Mehta are big Game of Thrones fans. So when they planned their wedding, something related to Game of Thrones being part of it was only natural and we must say they made it absolutely fantastic.

The idea was first suggested as a joke when their families sat down to discuss themes for the wedding. But soon, it stuck.

Shaurya, who originally came up with the idea, says, “I first thought of it for the wedding and the very next thought of ‘The Red Wedding’ got me to choose it for the Cocktail / Sangeet.”

The couple made their entry carrying the Stark and Lannister sigils and were greeted by a sword salute by their close friends.

9 of the funniest wedding matrimonial ads you will ever read!

India is considered a rather weird place as far as dating and marriage are concerned, we Indians are quite expectant when it comes to settling down and it becomes a comedy of errors when we try to fit expectations within a small matrimonial column.

You’d still have simple parents looking for the perfect son or daughter-in-law. The thought is novel. It’s perfectly fine to go for arranged marriages if it’s your cup of tea.

But some matrimonial ads are just plain hilarious and idiotic, check these out!

Lol, Twitter chalega?

Who wears jeans in the house??????

Hahaha we wonder how that went

Hahahaha, how pissed off is this parent!

Are you convented?

LOL, I dont know what to say about this

We wonder what an Innocent Divorcee is?

Lol! Bechaare

Last but not the least, This is Shashi Tharoor’s matrimonial ad! 😛

 

 

 

You will not believe these 13 WTF wedding customs from around the world!

Wedding customs are all part and parcel of the overall celebration, the throwing of rice, the groom cannot see the bride a day before the wedding, the bride has to fast for 24 hours on the day of the wedding. These are all ones which we have heard of, but the ones we list down in this article will make you go WTF!!!!!

Some of these are beautifully romantic and some, well see for yourself!

Fiji

In Fiji, men have to find an unusual gift before they can ask for a woman’s hand in marriage: Before asking for the hand of his beloved, the groom must present his father-in-law with a whale’s tooth.

Scotland

In Scotland, there is a particularly nasty pre-wedding tradition that involves the bride and groom being pelted with food trash, including rotten eggs and fish. The Scots believe that if a couple can withstand this, their marriage can withstand anything.

China

In China, when a groom comes to get his bride, he must first break through an aggressive wall of her angry bridesmaids. The bridesmaids demand money from him, and put him through a series of silly performances and tasks – all meant to prove just how strong his love really is.

Mauritania

In Mauritania, a large, full-bodied wife is said to signify good luck and prosperity in a marriage. Unfortunately, Mauritian women are often force-fed to become fatter for their wedding, sometimes causing them endless illness and health problems down the line.

Kyrgyzstan

Here’s a completely messed up tradition that will have you cringing; In Kyrgyzstan, an old adage claims that tears on a wedding day will make for a happy marriage. Until 1991 (when it was finally made illegal) many parents would consent to the marriage of a kidnapped young girl, especially if she was crying.

Russia

In an average display of somberness and seriousness, many Russians choose to be married at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Moscow.

Wales

In Wales, it’s common for a man to gift his new lover with a carved wooden spoon, symbolising that he will never allow her to go hungry.

Borneo

In Borneo, one tribe does not allow newlyweds to leave their homes during their wedding day, not even to go to the bathroom. Like most odd traditions, it is said to bring the couple good luck.

Niger

In Niger, men have to dress in elaborate costumes and perform for their potential mates. When the performance is over, the women get to choose the man they like best.

United States

This tradition stems from the American deep south. Back in times of slavery, black newlyweds jumped over a broom to symbolise moving forward in their new lives together. Though obviously somewhat antiquated, some couples still participate in this tradition.

Finland

Each year in Sonkarjävi, Finland, competitors come from all over the world to participate in a wife-carrying competition. Basically, it’s like a huge obstacle course that must be conquered with your spouse, girlfriend, or partner on your back. This competition brings new meaning to “carrying the load in the relationship.”

Armenia

In Armenia, single women eat a slice of a traditional salty bread in order to inspire a prophetic dream about the man they are going to marry: The guy that brings them water in their dream is the one they are supposed to marry.

South Korea

In South Korea, there is a traditional custom that says that a groom should have his feet beaten with fish and canes the night before his wedding. It’s supposed to prove strength of character, but might just actually be the groomsman attempting to interfere with him walking down the aisle – we see what you did there, bros. Lol we wonder what it must be in North Korea 😛
