Until you take those 7 rounds around the fire amidst chanting of the mantras your Indian wedding isn’t complete. The 7 (saat) pheras in Indian weddings are always the highlight of the wedding. The bride and groom make 7 vows to each other which they promise to fulfill to make their married life happier. Ever wondered what they mean and what are you getting yourself into :P:P ( I always nag my husband saying you made this promise while getting married!! ) Good to know these vows before you make them to your life partner!
I always wanted these 7 pheras to be a part of my wedding card in some way or the other! And my card designer did a very good job! Without much delay here is snapshot of my own wedding card with the 7 pheras explained ! The mantras have their own meaning and we tried to make it as simple as we could in english!
There is a very famous hindi song also related to the 7 pheras. Hope you like it and this infoormation is of all the help understanding your wedding vows.
After 5 working days everyone waits for the weekend. Sunday is the day most of us sit back at home, finish some personal work, spend some quality time with family. It is also the day which reminds us that “Tomorrow we got to go to office”. We had earlier posted an infographic (http://wp.me/p2T1CS-dx) on how a boy & girl spend their weekend before getting married. Let us see how married people spend Sunday’s. We have created an infographic and its self explanatory.
A Family Sunday
We belive that the above Infographic had answered some common questions 😉 . Above and below all, this may not be the scenario at every home, we have created this based on research with a tinch of humour :P.
Like BC & AD in calendar years, life has two parts. 1)Before Marriage 2) After Marriage (If you are gonna get married of course 😛 😛 ). If not taken jokingly, there is huge difference in both eras ( calling it that as it seems like one to me ;-)). In the simplest way, The first part we will be living as a ‘SON’ or a “DAUGHTER’ where we have our parents to look after us. Here we don’t have much responsibility, tensions, no critical decision-making. When it comes to the second part, SON/DAUGHTER changes to Husband/Wife, you are equally responsible for keeping the bond together.
We are not planning a big discussion about this, but a just a sneak peek into a girl’s & boy’s life before wedding. How they lived before becoming the happily ever after couple. This is a topic which we can write about endlessly.But we thought an infographic will speak better than a blog ( smart working is always better ).
The right amount of everything is needed to make a Family, play multiple roles (son, husband, daughter, wife,daughter-in-law,son-in-law) after marriage. This is how life is designed, this is where Family comes into existence and this is where we become responsible for ourselves as well as others. Precisely the time you almost decide to give away your girlish/boyish ways to become the Man or the Woman of the relationship! Now don’t get me wrong with all this boy girl thing going. I am just giving a little orange signal to the one’s about to me married and a gentle reminder of the old life to the one’s already married 😛 😛
