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.

Something very strange made this couple call off their Wedding…

This one trumps all levels of weird ( Although I feel that is only because we are used to the others ) as the groom and the bride called off their wedding over a debate on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

This story is about an ex-couple, natives of Kanpur, in conversation began to talk about the current economic scenario in India.

The girl, a current government employee, obviously passionate about the subject blamed the current administration for what according to her was a sorry state of affairs. The groom would not have it, a businessman and a Modi supporter, he was quick to come to the government’s defense.

Now normally, a debate would turn into an argument, an argument into a fight, in this case, they called off their wedding! WTF!!!!

This adds to the increasing list of ‘bizarre’ reasons for which weddings have been called off in India.From bride’s IQ to groom’s fairness, from groom’s side demand of non-veg meals to bride’s objection on “naagin dance”, we have recently witnessed the most bizarre reasons for cancellation of marriage but we do not know what level of weird this is! 😀

All we can say is we wish them the best individually, they really really stood their ground on this one didn’t they? What do you think?

A Bride Chose Her Wedding Lehenga Through FaceTime and the result will leave you speechless…

There is no doubt that most girls are crazy about weddings! What they are more excited about is their wedding outfit.

Every to-be bride wants to look the best on her D-day in her wedding lehenga. And so these pretty damsels browse the internet, check out each and every place that they possibly can and then arrive at a decision 🙂

But this has not been the case with Kiah.What is so special about her Lehenga?

She chose it over FACETIME. Yes, you read that right! Moreover, she didn’t even try it once (obviously!). This has to be the rarest of rare cases where the bride is doing the most important shopping of her life through video chat? Well, we still can’t believe it, but this is how she did it!

Actually, Kiah was in New Zealand when she did her bridal lehenga shopping. And the one and only time she tried it was before the big day.

Thankfully, her lehenga turned out to be super-amazing and she looked like a princess in it.

Kiah walked down the aisle with her love Ron and their wedding was truly mesmerizing and was beautifully captured by Design Aqua Studio.

This is the very lehenga, which Kiah chose over FaceTime. Kiah always wanted to don something in pastels for her wedding.

So, she opted for a pastel pink coloured lehenga with beautiful golden work on it by Aashna Behl. She just looked as natural as any Indian bride can manage to.

It was her mother who played the significant role in choosing this stunning bridal outfit as she was the one who FaceTimed with her to shop this in Delhi while Kiah was in New Zealand. Kiah teamed up her look with beautiful Kundan jewelry by Bishan Singh Jewellers in Chandni Chowk. The beautiful bride completed her look with minimal makeup from Chandni Singh Makeup Artist.

Well, it’s really a brave step for any bride to choose her lehenga over FaceTime without even trying it once, but Kiah, it worked for you and we wish you all the very best for the future 🙂

This Gujarat businessman is changing India, one year at a time!

Remember Gopal Vastapara ? I doubt it, considering all the horrible stuff we hear that is going on around the world, very rarely are the good things in the world remembered.

Let’s refresh our memory, Gopal Vastapara got his son and his daughters married last year. You are probably thinking ( Is this guy for real, what is so great about that)… read on to find out!

Gopal Vastapara is a businessman from Surat in Gujarat who is blessed enough to enjoy the best life can offer but when he decided to get his son married, he decided he still had not achieved everything.

Pursuing his keen drive for philanthropy he decided to organize a small sombre ceremony for his sons wedding inviting only close friends and family and decided to spend a large part of the money on organising a lavish mass wedding ceremony for a 100 girls, all who came of economically  backward families and who he christened as his daughters.

The girls were married on April 28 at a function in Chamardi village located in Amreli district of Gujarat.

The humble Mr.Vastapara said,”“We decided to get our son married in a very simple function and instead use the money to help 100 girls from poor families by arranging their marriages. Our motto is Sarva Dharam, Sarva Samaj (All religion, all communities). The girls who will get married are from various castes and include six Muslims too,”

Not only did the girls have the liberty to invite whoever they wanted, but Mr.Vastarpara also provided each happily married couple with all household essentials required by them to start their new life together.

The massive ceremony saw 60,000 people attending and all of the Rs 3 Crores were paid by Mr.Vastapara.

If that wasn’t enough, all Mr.Vastapara asked for in return was that each couple pledge to save a girl child and save the environment.

In a society where infanticide and dowry still blatantly exist, Mr.Vastarpara stood as a shining light to show that love for humanity should come from within.

Now the best part, Last year was just the beginning. Mr.Vastapara has pledged, that he will be sponsoring such mass marriage ceremonies for at least 10 more years if not more!

Take a bow Mr.Vastapara, we hope you keep inspiring!

5 Drinking games for the unconventional bridal shower!

Planning a crazy bridal shower for someone you love, but can’t figure what games to have? Well look no further, we snooped around to figure what others are doing to help you plan the perfect bridal shower for your sweet!

Check them out:

Read His Mind

Before the couple become one, let’s find out how well she knows him! A week or two before the shower, ask the groom twenty revealing questions about himself! Questions can be saucy and/or sickly romantic: “If you could burn one thing in your groom-to-be’s closet, what would it be,” is just one example.

At the shower, ask the bride to guess the answer to each question. Then, play his videotaped response. Each time the bride gets it wrong, the bride takes a shot, the more questions she gets wrong, the more sloshed she gets!

Two Truths and a Lie

This is a great icebreaker for guests who are just getting to know each other. Each guest tells the group three experiences she has had with the bride or groom; two are true, one is a lie.

Guests then guess which one they think is a lie, the person who guesses wrong takes a shot 😀

First Kiss Bridal Shower Game

From butterfly kisses to full-on tongue kissing action, everyone has a great ‘first kiss’ story to tell! Starting with the bride, ask each guest to tell her first kiss story.

At the end, your guests vote on the funniest or most romantic story. A great twist is to have everyone tell two stories: one about their best kiss and another about their worst kiss. Each person takes a shot when they tell their worse story, the bride takes a shot for every great one!

Rib it on!

One of the best games is also a great ice-breaker and involves nothing but a piece of string. As your guests arrive, give them the ball of ribbon and scissors and instruct them to cut off as much as they think they want—and remain quiet when they ask, “Need for what?”

As the night progresses and everyone is nice and drunk — get everyone together and compare the length of each person’s ribbon ( you all know what this represents ladies!), starting with the shortest, each person drinks!

Tighty Whities!

Tighty whities have never looked this good! Ask everyone to write notes to the groom on a pair of men’s underwear. You can choose a theme like “dirty advice” or “sweet best wishes” or leave it up to your guests. Then, make the bride wear the tighty whities for the rest of the party.  As each message is read the person whose message it takes a shot with the bride!
