“That awkward moment when every moment is an awkward moment.” The spirit line of each and every would-be bride.
Amidst the annoying relative rants and the never ending bickering of your friends, you lay there on that soft couch, binge pinning all the wedding ideas. We can clearly sense that you have zero will to get up and get done with all the wedding preparations that you have procrastinated. But wait, is it just the wedding stress that is pestering you? We mean come on, apart from all the wedding prep, aren’t you wondering about all the awkward situations that you were put in recently? But don’t worry, you are at a relatable spot and definitely not alone!
All of the brides have gone through these awkward situations once in their lifetime. Not to mention that these situations are directly proportional to the Indian society. More the amount of orthodox people, more will all the would-be brides experience such amusing and hilariously awkward moments! But let us begin with this fun list of unavoidable awkward moments for our cute would-be brides.
You know what time is it? Time to avoid the nosy aunties who always end up asking your bio data at the weddings. It’s more like, you must keep that bahu-CV ready for such aunties. Not to forget the awkward moments at the wedding when all the aunties have teamed up against you with your own mother??? It’s the actual one woman army moment for you, isn’t it?

Then comes the fishy rishtas which sometimes sound so suspicious that even our parents are surprised by the dubious people around. From putting IIM in their marriage profile to flaunting their oversee jobs, guys try to win you over like you are a job opening. The biggest cue for you to move onto the other candidate.
There is a pressure of education, the pressure of job but then comes the biggest pressure of all, the pressure of being over qualified. This one is a big one for the society, as the girl has to peculiarly carry the low profile and is supposed to be less qualified than the would-be husband. But wait, where should we flex our hard earned professional success?
Being judged by your parents for being an extrovert and being a bit outgoing is acceptable. But what about being judged by a bunch of unknowns who don’t even know you personally. It is pretty infuriating, but girls gotta do what girls gotta do, speak up! Don’t forget to rely that being an introvert is a stereotypical attribute that the world sets on a woman.
But wait, how can we forget the plea of your parents to marry a person we have hardly met a few months again? Yes, we are talking about the arranged marriage, more like a never ending marathon that we are forced to participate.
Keep aside the questions like what you are comfortable with, but the biggest issue before marrying is ‘can you cook’? Somehow, the person asking this question expects you to say an affirmative answer as it is the only possible answer to exist.
After all the stereotypical questions we have our relatives and our parents bringing their facts to choose your partner- the kundli. It is funny how people become religious just before the wedding. But to bust the secret, it is just the old school myth that revolves around our orthodox part of the community.
But how can we not mention the initial stage on our list? When your parents start dropping hints for you to tie the knot soon. They would randomly start asking about each guy friend you have or about how the son of that random uncle looks. Most importantly they would really move mountains to get those rishtas.
No matter how many times you were lectured on the basis of the biggest judgment – “log kya kahenge”, your parents will suddenly forget it when looking for your companion. Sadly, they will push you to an extent where you will have to go on blind dates, but obviously for weddings!
Last but not the least on our list is the most drastic change that you are forced to except- dating apps being replaced by the wedding apps. So rather than swiping people left or right, you end up looking for a calibre in a person on an online application. The irony never ceases to surprise us!
Well, the list of disappointments and the awkward moment would surely never end! But we hope that these ten awkward moments were not just awkward for a few would-be brides but all of you! Pain needs to be shared, so do share this fun blog with your parents and friends to send the relatable vibes. But if your awkward moments can beat the listed ones then don’t forget to comment them in the section below. Let’s share some laughs together!
