Bridal Files: The Engagement

by mehak on July 15, 2012

in Bridal Blog, Bridal files countdown

Day 2 of the wedding celebrations (the day after youngsters), was the mehendi in the morning and the engagement in the evening. I’m still awaiting the Mehendi pics, so ill put those when i actually get them, but Day 2 was extremely hectic. After sleeping the previous night at 4 am, i had to wake up early for Mehendi which by far was the most torturous experience of my life. Dont get me wrong, the mehendi was gorgeous, but it took like 6 hoursssss and i honestly dont have that kind of patience, specially because he wrapped up by 5 pm  and then i had to rush to get ready for the engagement! If i can give one word of advice to brides – keep the evening of your mehendi free !!! Putting mehendi is exhaustinggg ugh!  I had two cans of red bull before heading out because i really felt i would collapse and i honestly dont love mehendi that much to sit for it for 6 hours. Grr!  More mehendi stories later, but Engagement was the function which was kind of like cocktail/Engagement so there were performances and general dancing, apart from the exchanging of the rings.

The engagement was hosted by the boy’s family so my family entered together with 2 dhol wallas leading the way into the hotel. If i didnt have to be the elegant, demure bride i would have just done bhangra with them and danced my way to my seat , but i refrained. Then followed the ring exchanging, a small pooja and stuff and then the performances !

 

 

Cutest Performance of the Night: My mom and dad on Laung da lishkara, Boys Family on “Ek Panjaban Dil Chura ke le gaee’ (Referring to me )

Second Cutest Performance of the Night: My aunts (maami’s and maasi’s ) doing an item number- the Parda Parda one gauhar khan did in Once upon a time in Mumbai, They refused to dance on some boring old song, they said theyre no ‘aunties’!!

Surprise / Jaw Dropping Performance of the Night: The Boy with his friends dancing on ‘Im sexy and i know it ‘. Im not kidding, in the middle of the Bollywood  performances he got up from my side , said he will be back in a minute and next thing i know he is on stage, performing with his friends on ‘ Im sexy and i know it’ and doing pretty graphic pelvic thrusts to the wordings ‘Iv got passion in my pants and i aint afraid to show it ‘. LOL. Half of me wanted to sink into the ground and hide my face and the other half  wanted to jump up and scream. Needless to say, my family didn’t let me live down that performance!!!

Fun Performances of the night: The Boys dad and sisters on ‘ Papa toh baand bajaye’ , My cousins on Tu Mera Hero, My friends on CHikni CHameli (I had choreographed this), so i was doing the steps with my hand sitting on the bride and groom sofa, just in case they forgot!

Rocking Performance of the night: My brothers, all of whome are frankly brilliant dancers to Angrezi Beat, Pungi and Tashan me Rehna.

Brilliant Dancers of the Night: Boys cousin brother, My cousin sister (who people thought was a professional dancer we had hired).

My solo: Bahaara (I didnt love this song, but i was so short of options by the end, i just wanted to do a nice loive song that wasnt soppy and Bahaara fgit the bill.) I remember a reader suggesting me this song, so THANK you whoever you are, i don’t remember but someone emailed me with song optionsss!

Group Family Performance: Rum Rum Whiskey (The dhol dhol song) from Vicky Donor.

Boy and Mine Performance:  Started with ‘Rabta ‘ (One of my fav songs ever),  ended with ‘Tum Mile’.

If my family had the better dancers (im being honest, we are a family of dancers), then the boys family more than made up for it with their enthusiasm and cuteness. There was obviously craziness on the dance floor once the DJ came on as well !!! I don’t think i ate the whole night, i just wanted to dance, get pictures clicked and in general partyyyy!

The Suneet Verma Gown (Remixed)- Love it or Hate it?

All my apprehensions about that grey gown were put to rest, because i dont think it ended up looking as dull as i was fearing it to be. Infact in the sea of pinks i thought it was a bit different. What i also did to make it look a little less gown like and more indian, i bought gold chantilly lace and got it encrusted with sequins and embroidery. I hung that on one shoulder and then from the back, made a Ú’ and pinned it to the other side. It somehow gave an indian touch to the whole outfit so it didnt look as gown-ish.

Makeup and Hair was done by a lady called Doris in Hyderabad!

PS: I dont put up pictures of the boy because those are kind of private ! Not because im obsessed with myself!

Frances July 16, 2012 at 5:40 am

Mehak, you are just radiant in these pictures! And the grey gown is just perfect. Sometimes in an Indian wedding, the riot of colours makes it hard for a bride to really stand out, but this colour is so refreshing and elegant. The duppatta was a fab addition; it does Asian-ise it, and makes it look more romantic and demure.

Good call on keeping The Boy’s face mostly private, it’s nice to share some things with everyone, but you also want some details of your wedding to be reserved for friends and family. It’s great that you guys respect each other’s space like that.

Man, your wedding sounds such fun!

mehak July 16, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Hieee Frances !!!
Egg-zackly! Didnt want to give two many of those close up photographs or special phtorgaphs of us both…those can be reserved for being framed in my new living room! (Which reminds me- i might just start a ‘decor on a budget’ series :p)

Thanks for the gown, i was apprehensive earlier but i think the lighting really bought out the silver and lilac-ness of the gown rather than the grey-ness..

looking at your gorgeous engagmennt pics I am litterally gobsmacked… dumbfounded and amazed at the rich diversity, colour and joy you must have experienced on that night. The beautiful pictures which you have chosen to share with us your loyal readers makes ME especially feel part of it in Spirit!
I think your gown is breathtaking and the chantilly lace idea for a wrap/dupatta/shawl definitly indianified the stunning dress!!!
Masha Allah you looked gorgeous!!
Cant wait to see the rest of the photos and all the Details!!!!!
Being South African born indian (my grandparents were born in India) and reading your blog makes me feel closer to my “homeland”.

Hey! I have been following your blog for a long time and I love it. I find all the information and all the suggestions really helpful. But I seem to have a problem with one little thing.. its really sad to see such a confident working girl being so insecure. The reason you did not put up the pics of your bridal trousseau is not because of your mom, its because YOU didn’t want to show us all your outfits (which is acceptable! every bride wants to “wow” people and doesn’t want people to steal her outfit ideas). Second, you dont put pictures of the “boy” because you are insecure/jealous that we might go “oo la la” over him or tell you how hot he is.. (lets be honest, he is a shorty so prolly no attraction there). So please stop being insecure or jealous because u are a confident educated girl who shouldn’t be worrying about these things. And I am sorry if I sound rude but this constructive criticism is in good light. Take care :)

Reply

mehak July 18, 2012 at 11:02 am

Err..Insecure /Jealous? LOL. Then i dont think you know me that well.
The boys photograph has already been put up in a post titled the boyfriend tag. I just dont like my personal information splashed all across the world. Why would i be insecure if somepne finds him hot? Lol. I would love that, im married to a hot guy yayie !!! ‘Shortie’ – yup he is!! Im 5″7.5 yoouo see, and he is 2 inches taller than me so hes perfect for me though!
As for outfit ideas, that couldnt be further from the truth. Anyone whose been following my blog for a year will kow how open i am about where i bought them from and how much they cost. Secondly- if a reader emails me , iv even sent photos of them across. Its a question of things that are special to you being open to mass public. I dont think you realise but this blog gets about more than 2 lakh visitors a month and i have no way of verifying who is nopping around here for what purpose- i like to keep some things private. And by the way ( “ëvery bride doesnt want people to steal outfit ideas” …umm..im not that kind of bride. I dotn care if someone wears the exact same thing as me, i know ill still look good frankly- thats why when readers email me about frontier i tell them the exact model number of my lehenga which i picked up. Plus if i was insecure why would i even share them now?? You do realise that these outfit posts have gotten me the maximum amount of traffic ever !!! I would have no problem putting them up- more posts like this, more traffic !!!!

You dont sound rude, its just somewhat baffling to me that people dont realise how open i am compared to other bloggers about my life, but seem to just expect that all details about my own life are supoosed to be public knowledge. Thats why even family photographs are always kept to small photos and not big size photos.

Reply

Priya July 18, 2012 at 11:06 am

Before Mehak replies, im sorry but i think your comment is totally uncalled for. I am someone who is getting married soon and no blogger except mehak has been so helpful/open about outfits/bridal tips etc. I think its upto her how much privacy she wants to have, specially since her photographs have already been misused in the past but you obviously dont know that!

As for bridal trousseau, even im not allowed to show my bridal trousseau to anyone, my mom is like that too its not a question of’bride stealing ideas’ , its a question of it almost being a sacred thing atleast in mmy religion.

Priyanka July 18, 2012 at 11:35 am

Hey Simran
I am assuming you are not 13yrs old, so you can tell when you are being rude and when you are being bitchy. I am sure you know the difference . And how is your comment- criticism as you call it, constructive!!!

Hey Mehak, I am sure you dont need anybody to speak for you, I was just giving Simran my two cents! and I managed to do it without being rude.So it is possible I guess! :)

Reply

janisjoplinfan July 18, 2012 at 2:00 pm

my dear Simran
When you say constructive criticism, I would like to know what dictionary u follow…your comment just seems vicious and uncalled for..Poor mehak is hounded by bridal requests and other post inquiries, you could have also asked for those but no, the moment you start commenting about The Boy you seem pathetic and downright tacky and jealous..He’s Mehak’s boy and not yours so respect her decision to keep him out of the pics.
Just because Mehak is way more open about her life than other bloggers don’t expect that you have a right on her life..Understand some boundary issues, woman!!
And if u love this blog like many of us out there, you should just thank god that Mehak has been extraordinarily open and secure about her image and her outfits..Otherwise trust you me, noone believe me NOONE ever helps out a fellow bride this much!!

P.S sorry for the long comment Mehak.. and btw i love it that u went ahead with a different color (for a bride)..it looks beautiful..pinks and reds are overdone anyways :P

Reply

suna July 18, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Constructive..oh please! Constructiveness doesnt includes commenting on another girl’s boyfriend and pointing about their height for that matter ! Its so mean of you! Seeing your comment i see that your the one who feel insecure/jealous. She is confident enough to open a blog & have 1500+ followers , so jes stop try’n to be her mama! Sorry if i was rude, i am jes giving a constructive reply to u dear ;)

Mehak,
i hardly ever comment, but absolutely love ur blog. it takes something to open up about such minute details. n i feel, the level to which you are providing us with information, is absolutely perfect. we r here for some common interests and much needed help. and m sure almost all of us here r more than happy with d tiny details u provide.
the comment which was made, shouldnt be taken seriously at all.
1. its not constructive criticism.
2. d writer feels shes a psychologist. cuz she says.. mehak.. u did this cuz u felt like like this! u dint do this.. cuz u dint feel like this! hahahahah!!!

its an extremely helpful blog girl. n u catch d exact apprehension of a paranoid bride-to-be. thats wat i like about it. looking forward 2 reading all d details of ur wedding decking up.. dos n donts…!!
n trust me, none of us here want any details which r out of ur comfort zone. :)

Wow, just read the comment by Simran. And really, just wanted to say that you truly are the most helpful blogger around, always responding quickly to God knows how many queries you must be bombarded with in a day! It is your blog that made me realise how easy it would be if all would-be brides just shared notes with each other. In real life, you can do that with your friends and cousins who’ve got married recently, or are getting married soon. But, that group of people is limited. On the internet, the group of fellow brides is an endless list! So thanks to you, I’m hoping all the info I share helps other brides, and am getting so much help from brides I’ve never met but are in the same situation as I am in. Thanks a lot Mehak, for helping us out over the last few months (since I’ve been following your blog), and thanks a lot for all the inspiration – makeup, and bridal! Lots of blog love to you :)

OMG! just read Simran’s comment.

Girl you responded so calmly to that I would have ripped her out, You have truly been the most helpful blogger, I write a bridal blog myself and I still cant bring up the nerve to put my personal pictures up, when you clearly do that and respond to each one of us with any help you can offer.

The boy and you are perfect, that girl is just plain a jealous psyco.

Forget my mom I myself dont put up most of my trousseau pictures, its true about bad ‘nazar’ even if thats not true, some things are just very personal. Plus you always let us know the shops you have got your things from, which is way more helpful than anything else.

Love you blog!

Loved the pictures! You look so pretty and the gown looked fabulous! Love the addition of lace. Can I ask you for a favour? Where did you buy the chantilly lace? Thanks.

I know this comment is way too post mature, but I’ve just recently discovered it blog when I was looking for ideas for my wedding, n how!!
I came across it when I saw a girl’s pic on her mehendi(that was u, mehak :]) wearing something quite similar to what I had in mind for my own, n u looked amazing in that so I knew I’m on the right track(hope I’m able to look half as good).. N today, I saw thsee pictures of it gown n I was gobsmacked… I had been thinking along those lines for one of my functions too!!!! What r the chances of that?! But I didn’t think I’d have the guts to pull it off.. Now I have inspiration though, I’ll ask for ur advice when I start looking for the dress

N I know it’s not my place to reply, but I’m surprised at this girl simran.. How could anyone say something so vicious to such a helpful person.. I’ve hardly begun following this blog n I already know how sweet a person mehak is.. She’s answered my queries with a lot of patience n didn’t keep me waiting at all.. It’s even evident in the way she replied to it comment without being rude at all
I think u’re amazing, mehak

Hey Mehak! Where did you get that chantilly lace embroidered? How much was it to get the embroidery done? I have a couple of plain chiffon silk sarees that were my grandmothers and I kind of want to get light embroidery on them to bring them up to today’s age. Or should I just head over to kinnari bazaar and attach some borders? What do you think?

Hi Kiran
Just my neighbourhood boutique !!! Anyone can do it- but if yr looking at chiffon.silk then those look better with borders so yeah go to kinari…
