Did A Saathiya!

To be precise - this was my Facebook (duh!) update yesterday -


*Alternative, more-hysterical, title would be* I GOT MARRIEDDD!!!!!!!!!! :D

We wanted to do EVERYTHING we cant at our "wedding" in Feb. *rolls eyes* (which is still happening all you people who are coming, don't worry!). Coming back, so honest confession, we fought more AFTER the engagement more than well.. I have EVER fought with anyone, and that is, trust me, saying something. And we realized ALL of it was related to the stupid wedding - the hall, the food, the guests, the clothes, the jewellery (oh. my. god. the jewellery - do not marry a mallu if you don't have gold! :P) and all that jazz. 

We realized that, we were simply not getting what WE wanted for our wedding - what the fuck happened to the whole 'simple sweet affair'?!?! So doing a How I Met Your Mother - we did exactly what Marshall & Lily did at their wedding. They got married in secret, so that when things go wrong at the big fat wedding (which they will) they wont care, because hey, they are already married! :) Sounds cool no?

Bandra Civil Court. (crazy place that one! SO CROWDED!) Along with *only* 3 witnesses. This was our EPIC Saathiya moment -

  • Wore black.
  • Wore shorts.
  • Had no make up on.
  • DID NOT wear any jewellery (save our engagement rings)... LOL.
  • Expenses for Saathiya wedding < 1/4th cost of the Engagement :/

In related news, I FINALLY got my proposal. (I didn't really need one... the guy is buying me a goddamn house! :P In MUMBAI. That IS a big deal people.) He got this from God knows where, and handed it to me with the cutest smile on his face. :)




I wish I could express how awesome that felt! For people who did not understand that, that was the Golden Snitch from Harry Potter, with engraving on the inside, complete with HP font! :P I am not big on lavish expensive proposals, though they DO make me go all awww, but frankly something cute, inexpensive but thoughtful is PERFECT don't you think? :)

P.S: This is another update.. (Yea my feed is FULL of such idiotic nonsense featuring my three fav men.. hehehe!)

Dhanya said...

Congratulations again Annie! :) Soooo happy for you! Btw, I had read an article long back that the period between engagement and marriage is when most couples fight a lot -- and this happens coz of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Guess you're experiencing the same, but all will be worth it :) Have a blessed life ahead Mrs. S :)

'gratz Annie!! :D Wish you many long years of utmost joy and happiness! :D

I wish more people were like you, that didn't give a crap about having a big, fat, Indian wedding. I don't understand why families and couples put so much pressure on each other to have a grandiose wedding, stress themselves out no end to have everything 'perfect'.. and then not put even half of the effort into maintaining a successful and lasting marriage.

Your husband sounds awesome. I hope my to-be proposes with some trinket from the Lord of the Rings :D

Much love and best wishes.

Congratulations !

Priyanka Banerjee said...

WOW! You both seem SO BLOODY cool! :D
Married in shorts. That should be the new thang, you know? Sounds fun!
And a snitch? Really? Thats mind blowing.
I think this calls for a Harry Potter pick up line!
"Im just like Oliver Wood baby, Im a keeper"
Oh and congratulations!! ^_^
