Thus, a million thoughts cloud her mind especially if she is moving in with her in-laws. So, if you too are going to get married any time soon into a similar setup, here are all those thoughts and things that you will experience!

All those beautiful and heavy outfits you bought while shopping for your wedding trousseau, well now’s the time to start showing it off!
Not only your outfits but all the accessories you got to match them like your earrings, the gorgeous stilettos and the ever important and precious makeup!! You can dress-up like a diva even when you are at home because that’s an advantage every new bride has without it looking odd.
Well, at least till your mehendi starts to wear off as its considered bad omen for the daughter-in-law to do any work till her mehendi is on. Also, your new family pampers you out of love!
Because then you would have the entire house to yourself, you could eat, drink and wear whatever you want and most of all, get cozy with your hubby without worrying that anyone will watch you!
Because they want to see how you look, how you talk and of course, what all you do. You are as new to them as they are to you and new brides are always the center of attraction.
You constantly worry that you might sleep till late and so don’t sleep well at night. You don’t want to make a bad impression on your in-laws by walking in just in time for lunch from your room!
Your room is open all the time because you feel odd to keep it closed. And because it is just the next day after your wedding, most of your relatives are still at home. So, everyone wants to be around you all the time.
And some of the new relatives crack really poor jokes on which you have to be all smiles, even when all you want to do is keep a straight face. Being the perfect respectful bride, you manage to fake it really well!
Yes, you can't stop thinking about your family, especially your mom. And that too, ALL THE FREAKING TIME!!!
