10 Things a Bride Hides Behind that Smile at Her Wedding

Even though it is the most-awaited day of her life and a joyous occasion, the wedding day can bring a bride on the brink of complete exhaustion. The wedding planning stress, possible nervousness about beginning a new life, and the daunting task of wearing heavy outfit and jewellery all day long, can make even the most cheerful girl irritable.

In this state of mind, when she has to answer certain questions just to be polite, or display a happy smile, what is going on in her mind is far from what can be seen. We tried to decode some of the most common wedding day scenarios and an Indian bride’s reaction to those. What they really mean is far from what we all hear. This is worth a read.
