June 21, 2009

It’s 6 or 7 months before, parents of my friends were consulting with their relatives and astrologers to get whats the best date for their son/daughter to get married and the astrologers seems to say in unison that June month has several auspisious dates and pick one from it. So everybody chosen their convenient dates quite superbly ranging from June 4th to June 29th.

I am already got tired of going to marriages this month because its quite a lot. First one on June 4th, sister of my college friend and when I thought the next one is on June 18th sister of my another college friend’s then came the call from my school about his brother’s marriage on June 14th. So went there and attended it. When I thought the last one is going to be the one I am attending will be my class mates(college) Β on June 25th(special one) then came Β the call yesterday morning from my school friend that her marriage is on June 29th. Now I am thinking what’s on Earth with this month, and I am sttending too much of marriages. Never ever went to this much marriages in a whole year. So I am not ready to believe that June 29th will be the last one… anybody will call me anyday and anytime and tell their marriage is on June 30th or somewhere in this month πŸ˜€

Actually I am going to marriage’s to see my old friend’s from whom I have lost the contact but there is very response from my friends. Not many were turning to marriages citing one or other as reason. But still I am able to see some and able to laugh with them when we talk about the past.

So what’s the special about June 25th marriage??? Each and every marriage is special moment… but in this one the turn up of my friends will be more as, that’s the marriage where the first guy from our class gets into the marriage trap πŸ˜› πŸ˜› He personally invited many by going to their home so I am sure about that. There are many of whom I didn’t seen for almost for 2 years. Many promised that they were coming. I am planning to take leave on that day(June 25th) and have a day out and laught out with them. So it will be amazing na??? Also the discussion of getting the gift is going on. We have decided to give one big gift that will be useful for him and other a memorable one from our class (Planning to give it for everyone’s marriage). But the time is too short. Please provide me some suggestions on that soon friends. I am thinking of a medium sized wall photo with photos of him and the marriage date and the signature’s of us. But I don’t know whether it’s an feasible option.

    I gifted my best bday an mp3 cd with complete collections during our college life. He loved it so much that he made multiple copies out of it. Again, gift depends person to person. But I would always prefer gifting something thats really personal. πŸ™‚

    kanagu: That’s cool vimal… but I am not that much close to him… I have check with some of my classmates on what he like most πŸ™‚

    ur idea of a gift is really nice! maybe if u cud get hold of old photos, like when u were together, and make a nice collage!!

    kanagu: We have presented them with a photo frame with our tour photos and planning to give oven πŸ™‚

    • June 22, 2009 8:53 pm

      yeah Kanagu crockery is boring πŸ˜€
      And crafty’s idea of making a collage of old pics of all of you and then getting it framed and with signatures and all is a best idea I think πŸ™‚

      kanagu: Yes Indyeah.. we have presented a photo frame and signatures we are not able to get 😦

      • June 22, 2009 11:12 pm

        my suggestion (and what I always follow):
        go there empty handed…. and eat as much as possible… and try to take treat from guy before marriage….. πŸ˜›

        I have always followed this rule to the T πŸ˜›

        kanagu: LOL dude πŸ˜†

        • June 23, 2009 1:27 am

          Now why am I NOT surprised? πŸ˜€

          your love for food surpasses everything else πŸ˜€

          kanagu: LOL Indyeah.. its true πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

          • June 23, 2009 4:36 am

            yes, we guys have an unspoken rule….
            The better the friend, the more you should try to create problems for him……

    ohh thatz the reason πŸ™‚ …i was wondering y so much marriage on this month(2 of my cousins,2 college mate’s,2 church friends)…Most of them happened in Kerala,didn’t able to attend even one 😦 …… good 2 hear u have been present at the most important occasion of U’r friends life

    kanagu: its always really sad when we don’t attend our friend’s marriage,, its full of fun πŸ™‚

    @ gift….2 be frank I’m 2 bad in suggesting one…may be u can give something like gift voucher of Lifestyle or westside(if he is in chennai),So that he can purchase some useful stuff of his choice

    kanagu: I have suggested this and my friends rejected it at once πŸ˜€

  17. June 23, 2009 5:13 pm

    Here,July -August is the most busy marriage season..Know why? Because,july-August is summer vacation in middle east and almost all families take their yearly leave during that time of year and hence people fix marriage then,so that max people/relatives can attend πŸ™‚ Different people have different reasons to celebrate ,hai na??

    kanagu: First of all welcome back here πŸ˜€
    you are in middle east now??? at first you are in UK right, Nimmy??
    wow thats a info.. in July also there will be marriages.. but in August there won’t be much marriages here as Tamil ‘Aadi’ comes in between.. πŸ™‚

    Your idea of gift is perfect…I would suggest a pair of watch for both bride and groom…

    kanagu: We have gifted a photo frame and going to give a oven to them.. πŸ™‚
    thanks for the suggestion Nimmy πŸ™‚

  18. June 26, 2009 1:09 am

    Hope u had a nice time at the wedding, reuniting with ur long lost friends πŸ™‚
    I loved the gift idea, did you finally stick with it or changed the mind?

    kanagu: Welcome here Saranya πŸ™‚
    yes.. it went well πŸ™‚
    Thank you… yes we stuck to it… πŸ™‚

  19. June 26, 2009 1:55 pm

    LOL! The best thing would be to get married yourself! Then your wife can worry about gifts πŸ˜€

    kanagu: LOL Winnie πŸ˜†

  20. June 26, 2009 2:28 pm

    how about a laminated (or framed) group photo with all common friends standing together?? if possibly with signatures??

    kanagu: Thanks for the suggestion Ashwathy πŸ™‚

    We have given it but without Signatures πŸ™‚

  21. June 27, 2009 3:23 pm

    June is too hot for anything except sitting and eating ice creams 😦

    kanagu: yes its too hot here IHM 😦

    But such occasions are great for meeting all old friends πŸ™‚ I think you chose a nice gift … photoframes and freinds’ photographs are a great gift.

    kanagu: Thanks IHM πŸ™‚

  23. June 30, 2009 10:27 pm

    Oh lucky you! Attending weddings! I have not attended a single wedding since 2005!!!!! How I wish I could swap places with you πŸ™‚

    kanagu: You can swap places Smitha.. I am now tired off it and I always loved to visit UK sometime.. πŸ˜€

    You should enjoy it when you can πŸ™‚ and practise, probably – for your own πŸ™‚

    kanagu: LOL πŸ˜† anyway its better that I am here and attending them.. If I am not here and don’t how could have felt when missing them πŸ™‚
