Parents’ love for their children is something that cannot be explained in either words or gestures. It is a miraculous feeling that goes beyond expression. And, as cliché as it may sound, you can only understand how much your parents do and sacrifice to bring you up, on the day you become one yourself.

But, of all your milestones like your first step, your first word, your first award etc, your wedding is the one which is the closest to their hearts. They leave no stone unturned and make sure that you have the perfect wedding. Not only do they spend their life savings on it, but there are some adorable things they do that you probably don’t even notice. Here are some of those sweet gestures that go amiss while you are busy bathing in the glory of your D-day.
Be it an early morning appointment at the beauty parlour, a hot afternoon trial session at the designer for the wedding outfit, or a late night pick-up from your bachelorette party, your parents will always drive you around leaving all their work for later, whenever you need them.
Be it your bridezilla panic mode, your frustration over something else that automatically came out on your parents, your misbehaviour over things where you don’t get your way; all of those instances where they just take all of that with a smile on their face and will not be angry at you for behaving that way later on.
Whether it is having all the contact numbers of people responsible for various wedding related things, bringing your clothes from the designers, taking calls on your behalf and patiently attending everything, they do it all without you even having to ask.
Whether you want the entire house or venue to be a curtain of roses, your wedding outfit to be designed by a specific designer, or any other frantic demand, they put up with all of that and try to do whatever they can to make the wedding a dream event.
When you yourself get so tired standing and attending your own wedding functions, think of your parents who are double your age and host all the guests and vendors even if all they want to do is sleep.

Which event follows which one, what time does the mehendi and sangeet start, making sure that the food and snacks are ready, calling and coordinating with the vendors and a million other things, they take care of everything without even taking a break. Hats off to all the mummies and daddies, who do all this without a single complaint!
The caterer cancelled just 24 hours before the wedding, your outfit got a little damaged or the rain weather predictions are likely to ruin your outdoor wedding arrangements, come-what-may, they act as if nothing has happened. Even though, from within they have no clue how to handle it, but for your happiness, they keep their cool.
Many traditions and rituals have been a part of Indian marriages for centuries. And, whether we like them or not, we have to follow them all. But, our angels from heaven, our parents, not only guide us smoothly through them all, but also mend a few according to our comfort (okay, sometimes).
You may feel totally lost and nervous as your marriage approaches nearer. You are happy, sad, excited and have goosebumps, all at the same time. But have you noticed that at a time like that, no friend, no relative or anyone even your fiancé can calm you down the way your parents do? In all your decisions and all your endeavours, they are always by your side.
They might be very emotional from within, as they will now have to share their child’s love and someone else will now be more important than them, but there is always a constant smile on their faces. Every time you look at them, it reassures you that all will be well and better things are yet to come.
Many relatives in every family are difficult to deal with. Some or the other mausa ji or mama ji definitely create problems for everyone. We call them the troublemakers. As much as your parents would want to ignore them, they still attend to them nicely so that the wedding goes off well. Dhanya hain!
These are very small gestures but are the ones that sail you comfortably through the journey of your wedding. You may not realise it immediately, but your parents do much more than you wish for. So appreciate all that they do for you, to make them happy, and always be there for them as well!
