If you are a bride-to-be, there is only one person that can bring an impression of order in your wedding preparation chaos and that is your best friend aka your soul sister. She was by your side when you first fell for that boy next door, she even kept you together as you went through heartbreak, she heard you talk endlessly about how you would want your prince charming to propose you, and even made sure that he proposed you just the way you always wanted. But, have you thought of thanking her for a lot of what she does that goes unacknowledged?
Well, here is a list of those special things that your ‘sister from another mother’ does for you as you get set to tie the knot!
P.S.: For all those who are already hitched, you have to read this too, because this will not only leave you nostalgic, but also make you call your best friend right now.
Right from logistics for the revelry to getting the discussion group on the same page, she will bear it all. She is that one person who knows your creepiest secrets from school days and your fixation on Bradley Cooper or Ranbir Kapoor. So, she knows just what you want, and she will make sure that she gets it there for you. What's more? There will be your favourite food, booze and sleazy dance moves on shady Bollywood numbers to give the party a tadka of madness.
Be Warned: There may be a merry mention of some of your embarrassing moments during your bachelorette party. Well, though your friends may have the last laugh with you being embarrassed, the little girl inside you will giggle reminiscing the good old days!
Shopping for your wedding becomes a personal challenge for her, as she wants you to look the best. She dons the role of your style guru and helps you pick the most chic clothes. She will raid every nook and corner of Chandni Chowk, Lajpat Nagar and Karol Bagh to the swankiest of malls to get you your designer (even if it is a rip-off!) lehenga (like Humpty Sharma buys for his dulhaniya!).
And, it is not just about your wedding outfits, she will even shop with you for your wedding night and honeymoon wear as well. The best part of going on a shopping spree with her is that she will shop for you like she is shopping for her own wedding and this is how special you are to your friend!
Despite innumerable rescheduling of dance practices for sangeet, she will never possibly gather guts to say a ‘no’ to you. Even if she is a non-dancer, she will try her level best to ape the dance moves just to make you happy. Her preparations will be at par with our Jhalak Dikhla Jaa contestants.
In fact, she will persuade even your ‘door kay rishtedaar’ to groove to the music and shake that ‘tooh’ like Kareena and Imran Khan. She is that woman in your life who will redefine ‘craziness’, burn the dance floor and will make sure that ‘poora London thumakda’!
Thank your stars for your best friend, as she is a blessing in the form of a pseudo-wedding planner. From counting months to weeks and finally days, she will keep you away from obsessing about those ‘second thoughts’ or about ‘leaving your family behind’. She will calm down your nerves instantly, whether it is related to your wedding planning or your cold feet moments.
She will take onus of everything including getting your ‘shaadi ka joda’ ready on time and arranging a wedding photographer to even visiting countless salons to help you find the best makeup artist, among a list of other to-do tasks. She will also never miss an opportunity to remind you that you are in safe hands and nothing in the world can conspire against you.
Since times immemorial, best friends are known to turn dosti into rishtedaari instantly. And, your soul sister is no exception! She will find a place in the shaadi ka ghar irrespective of whether or not she knows your family.
What’s more? Even your most annoying aunts, aloof uncles, weird cousins and distant friends will develop a liking for her. She will befriend everyone for your happiness and to keep you away from all petty issues.
Now that you are all teary-eyed, would you rather not drop a Muchas gracias note for all she has done for you?
