If being a bride is tough, then being a bride’s sister is tougher. This is not me but my experience speaking.
Right from accompanying her for wedding trousseau shopping, parlor visits, decking her up for the functions, actively participating in all the rituals, the list is endless. On top of it, I needed to look good, happy and keep the party momentum going, in spite of being head to toe famished.
Now that everything is over, I look back to see that everything pretty much went well .Thanks to my parents. The only thing I am not too glad about is the amount of time that was given to me to deck up the bride. As a result I hardly had time for her and myself (Bdw I was non-existent). I looked totally worn out and tired on the wedding day. You will see the pictures and agree with me.
But I swear, I am not complaining. I would sound a bit over the board emotional and clichéd but it’s so true, the smile on my sis’s face after she looked into the mirror made me extremely happy. Somewhere I lost one single tiny tear from the corner of my right eye which I immediately managed to hide.
Without talking about my melodramatic situation any further here is the final result. I have also broken down the look and the products used for the same. The Hair and the Saree Draping was done at a local parlor.
