She looked most beautiful

Her close family and friends dressed her up in red and gold. The long gold earrings gently dangled on either side of her soft face. The red lehenga hugged her slim figure perfectly.

She conveyed to one of her friends ” I’m getting nervous. The time to leave is coming near.”  Her friend tried to calm her anxious nerves.

Today was the day she was getting married. She had to start a new journey and she had to travel an unknown path that she had never traversed before. 

She was deaf to the noise, the hustle bustle and the chaos that was surrounding her.  She sat in her room, ready to leave any minute to take her vows.

Sitting in her room, she stared outside through the window and she could see the leaves swaying to the gentle breeze. Strange thoughts flashed through her mind. As the gentle breeze gushed into her room through the window and brushed her tender face, she felt a calm and peace within.

One of her cousins came running into her room. ” It’s time to leave, ” she said. While she arose and gracefully walked to begin her new journey, she looked most beautiful.

    1. You’ve rightly said it’s a mixed feeling. The bride goes through various emotions, because, she undergoes majority of changes like going into a new family, new surroundings and the excitement to start a new life. Thanks for the lovely comment Sreeja 🙂

  1. I agree registered marriages are simple and less complicated, while our Indian marriages are dramatic for sure. But there’s a lot of fun, spice and entertainment involved in our Indian marriages too 😀 Thank you Gaurav so much for your lovely comment 🙂
