Lets face it;the wedding season just never leaves Pakistan.Hartaal ho,mausam kharab ho laikin shaadi ya engagement tou ho kar rahay gi.By now we have gazzilion friends who have probably gotten engaged or nikkah-fied,while you’re still pretty much single and always just the bridesmaid.
First you make sure if shes pranking you or if she’s serious
Although I’m very confused why people joke about something like that.How is them getting engaged or married a joke on you?
Then ofcourse you congratulate her
You are super happy for your best friend.
But deep down you are sad that your best friend is getting married and things wont be the same again.
A sudden realization “Meray pass tou kapray nahin hain”!
You ask them to give you all the details about their spouse-to-be
Kon hai wo?How old is he?What does he do?Daikhnay main kaisa hai?Kahan dekha un logon nain tumko?Acha Facebook pay stalk karain?
You give them ideas for their big day and run all the errands with them
I know a lady who comes over and will doll you up in just 10,000.The venue,food and Yass!!!groom himself is way more important.
You are the choreographer for all the wedding dances
You cant help but feel left out.
But at the same time you calm your best friend down when they have a pre-wedding panic attack
Soon enough,the conversations are about dinner with inlaws,shaadi preps,issues with fiance.
You arrange dholkis/bridal showers/bachellor’s party for your best friend to have the best time before they get married.
You make sure you look the best because you are bride/grooms best friend
You dont leave your friends side -you hold their stuff,call their parents for them,hand them the tissue when they cry -you are always there.
The whole wedding things gets you emotional
You wonder if it is the right time for you to settle down.
While youre still Instagramming pictures from the last one’s engagement,another one of your friend breaks the good news
No not ready.Abhi tou uss ki hui hai.Kapray phir banwanain parain gay?
And again youre left wondering!!
Again,new dress,new hall,another couple on the stage.Same you.Still single.
But then you tell yourself its okay to be SINGLE
