I got married.

A simple marriage it was…like I always wanted. Close family and friends to bless the couple. Happy bride – yes me. Happier groom – he better be. And extremely pleased parents, who were running around like they were speedsters – yes it did look like they had that superpower.

It all happened so fast…everything from waking up that morning to getting ready, from reaching the temple to becoming someone’s wife…it was over in a blink of an eye. But I enjoyed it thoroughly. I didn’t care how pretty I looked, it didn’t bother me that not all relatives approved of this, I didn’t get cold feet and it didn’t matter that I did not have a big fancy wedding. Because I was sure this was something that would last forever. The bond. The love. The marriage. And that is all I ever wanted.

It was just perfect. Our parents were on cloud nine, we were smiling all the way, our siblings were excited and everyone present for the event blessed us with all the good wishes.

What more could one ask for? – Oh what about a photographer so I can share some pics, right?

There was no professional photographer; just a friend walking around taking snaps of whatever she thought were moments to remember. And right when it was time for the couple to walk around the fire, the friend somehow managed to drop the camera into that fire. Yupe, it was that dramatic. Anyway, so there aren’t any pics except for the ones friends / family took using their phone camera…and you know how not-so-clear those low-resolution photos can be. So basically I don’t have any snaps to share…except for that mental picture I have of the day. It will always remain in my mind crystal clear. And that is be more than enough to make up for any digital print.

Apparently, I am now a wife. A daughter-in-law. A sister-in-law and what not. Oh well, I can’t complain. I’m happy. 🙂

My dear readers, please don’t get upset with me that I did not invite or even put up a simple message here regarding this whole thing. I would have if I had had more time or if I had had a chance to wake up, write a post and go right back to sleep to continue with the dream where I was a happy bride. But I did not. And for that I apologize. 😆

When it is time for the real deal, I promise I will find a few minutes to let you all know. Ok? 😛

So what do you think? Now that I’ve started having dreams about getting married, what next? 😛 If a nosy relative read this, I’m sure he/she would say it is high time for me to tie the knot and pop out babies. So I think I will keep this to myself (and my blog) as of now…no letting the relatives know of my dream, not yet.

    OMG! This ws cool T! I first thought I am reading fiction, then I thought u really got married .. ws confused u just abt told in a previous post u hd no such plans as yet but still 😛
    Never ever thought abt the dream part – so many details ha ha ha 😀

    So, we might see some news here in some time is it 😛 Nw that u r dreaming abt it and all that 😉 They do say dreams are reflections of our thoughts 😉

    Gud luck 8)

    btw, i had a dream about wedding…i am not “dreaming about” getting married..theres a difference 😉

    but yeah it is bound to happen some day…and i will definitely do a post about it on the blog :P..thanks for the wishes 😀


    • #15 by Swaram on November 11, 2009 - 2:40 am

  11. #18 by sakhi on November 10, 2009 - 2:39 am

    Hey…naughty girl… you got me there!! 😛 😀 😆

    But you know, if the a photographer is really not there, there still is a positive point. You will not have anything to compare later in life when you blow out of proportion!! 😉 😆

    p.s. i know i know it was a bad pj, but i had to take revenge for sucha silly joke of yours! 😀 😀

    oh my god…i never realized wedding pics were taken to compare later in life…but it makes so much sense…LOL..

    now i better not get a photographer for my real wedding 😛


  12. #19 by Mahmud faisal on November 10, 2009 - 2:50 am

    You….. ewwwwww 🙄 🙄
    I just got shocked! don’t know why! 😯

    Now, I got the point at the end 😀 I was in confusion how the marriage could go without snaps now a days! and, I almost started to disbelieve the words that you have found no time coz I found you regular in the blog. How can’t you manage times for letting us know your ‘marriage news’!! moreover, I almost walk around your blog… several times a day!

    Anyway, hope the marriage will not be such.. there will be beautiful bride, lucky groom, a happy set of families…. and some friends online smiling– on your marriage 😀

    Take care and your shouldn’t shock us like that!

    haha…you are smart 😀

    and of course, when it comes to the real wedding day i will let you all know :D..i think :D…

    ok sir, no more shocks 😆


  13. #20 by Elegant Chic on November 10, 2009 - 3:37 am

    The moment I saw the title, I was like “OMG!!! What the heck!!!”

    You naughty! 😀

    I almost started to gulp, until I reached the end. Sheeeshhhh… 🙂

    I love reading dream interpretations.

    As far as your dream is concerned, here are the omens:

    To see a marriage in your dream, signifies commitment, harmony or transitional period. You are undergoing an important developmental phase in your life. The dream may also represent the unification of formerly separate or opposite aspects of yourself. In particular, it is the union of masculine or feminine aspects of yourself. Consider the qualities and characteristics of the person that you are marrying. These are the qualities that you need to look at incorporating within yourself.

    To dream of a proposal of marriage, suggests that some situation will take a turn for the worse.

    To dream that you are getting married to your ex, suggests that you have accepted aspects of that relationship and learned from those past mistakes. Alternatively, it means that a current relationship shares some commonality with your previous relationship with your ex. However, you will not make those same mistakes.

    To dream that you are in an arranged marriage, suggests that you are feeling forced to do something you do not want to do. You feel that you have no voice or no choice in a situation. Consider how a waking situation may be making you feel voiceless.

    To see a wedding in your dream, symbolizes a new beginning or transition in your current life. They reflect your issues about commitment and independence. Alternatively, your wedding dream refers to feelings of bitterness, sorrow, or death. Such dreams are often negative and highlight some anxiety or fear. If you dream that the wedding goes wrong or ends in disaster, then it suggests that there is more negativity that needs to be dealt with.

    To dream that you are getting married to your current spouse again, represents your wedded bliss and happiness. It highlights your strong commitment to each other. It may also signify a new phase (such as parenthood) that you are entering in your life.

    To dream that you are planning your own wedding to someone you never met, is a metaphor symbolizing the union of your masculine and feminine side. It represents a transitional phase where you are seeking some sort of balance between your aggressive side and emotional side. Two previously conflicting aspects are merging together as one.

    If you are getting married and have dreams of your pending wedding, then it highlights the stress of organizing a wedding. Conflicts over wedding details, tension with family and in-laws, fear of commitment, and loss of independence may all cause wedding anxiety dreams. Research has shown that up to 40% of brides and grooms have dreams about their ceremony and things going perfectly.

    To see a camera in your dream, signifies your desires to cling on and/or live in the past. Alternatively, it may indicate that you need to focus on a particular situation. Perhaps you need to get a clearer picture or idea.

    To dream that the camera is broken, indicates that you are ignoring an issue or refusing to see the big picture.

    Depending on the context of your dream, to see fire in your dream can symbolize destruction, passion, desire, illumination, transformation, enlightenment, or anger. It may suggest that something old is passing and something new is entering into your life. Your thoughts and views are changing. In particular, if the fire is under control or contained in one area, then it is a metaphor of your own internal fire and inner transformation. It also represents your drive, motivation, and creative energy. Alternatively, the dream may be warning you of your dangerous or risky activities. You are literally “playing with fire”.

    To dream that you are being burned by fire, indicates that your temper is getting out of control. Some issue or situation is burning you up inside.

    To dream that a house is on fire, indicates that you need to undergo some transformation. If you have recurring dreams of your family house on fire, then it suggests that you are still not ready for the change or that you are fighting against the change. Alternatively, it highlights passion and the love of those around you.

    To dream that you put out a fire, signifies that you will overcome your obstacles in your life through much work and effort. If you are setting a fire to something or even to yourself, then it indicates that you are undergoing some great distress. You are at the brink of desperation and want to destroy something or some aspect of yourself.

    Hope it helped. It definitely comes useful for me! 😀

    😆 i won’t go do something this big without putting up a hint on the blog, don’t worry 😉

    and thanks a ton for the dream interpretation thing….i’ve never done this before, so dunno if these things are true…but it was fun reading it 😀


    • #21 by Elegant Chic on November 10, 2009 - 12:42 pm

    ROFL @ Pop out babies. I wish it was that easy ! 😉
    But the big question remains still ; Who was the lucky guy ? Hope you saw the face ! 😛

    oh come on..how can you be so sure?…Solilo saw this blog post title on twitter and without a doubt tweeted that i was kidding…you people don’t believe a word that i say, do you? 😀

    haha, but that’s what they expect…many people that advice me on marriage give me this baby thing as the biggest reason…they say i shud get married and have babies before it’s too late …haha…makes me feel old :P…

    aaahhh, BM….no one else asked me this and i was wondering how….and here you are reading my mind yet again :D…and to ans your ques – it was my big day, why am i gonna pay attention to the guy? :P…i didn’t :D..and since there are no snaps, i can’t really tell 😆


    • #27 by BlueMist on November 10, 2009 - 1:14 pm

      Tsk tsk tsk all waste…if you haven’t seen the face. You will have to still sing “mere khwabo mein jo aaye”. Go dream again and see the face. 😆

      Can’t go by the title of the post ; until we find what is the twist. Your name should be Twisty 😛 ( and rhymes with mine “misty” 😀 )

      Spill the beans now; how many hits for this post ? 😀 many lurker might have been disappointed after reading post title. 😉

  33. #48 by Prathima on November 11, 2009 - 11:25 pm

    I assumed that u got married in such no hush hush, no dhoom dhamaaka way…
    Was even wondering y your hubby was also not interested to take some pics…
    Anyway.. i had so many random thoughts till i read the last line and realized that it was one of the crazy dream!! 🙂

    rofl…the so called hubby won’t be interested in pics, i guess…after all, he let it be when there was no professional photographer hired…i guess he wasn’t happy with the marriage 😉 haha



  34. #49 by noname on November 12, 2009 - 12:47 am

    lol. I kinda did expect the twist. Very nicely put though. Take care.

    yeah i guess many people did….the minute i posted this one, a fellow-blogger (Solilo) on twiiter put up a response saying i was joking…LOL…you all know me too well now..



  35. #50 by SG on November 12, 2009 - 11:09 am

    Good one. From the beginning I knew you were joking. I read all your blogs and also remember them. You wrote a blog on Sep 3 titled “My Evil Twin…”. I wrote the following comment:

    Nice post. Make Amma, Appa, Thatha, Patti, Mama, and Athai happy. Please get hitched. Thanks.

    You replied:

    thanks but no thanks 😀 …i would rather find the twin and make sure she gets married to make my amma happy 😉 …lol

    haha….you remember every little detail, don’t you? :D…

    now when i do the real wedding post, no one will believe me ;-)..then i’ll get you all…


  36. #51 by Pearls on November 13, 2009 - 12:54 pm

    congratulations!!!! A very simple post to declare that. I kept waiting for you to say you were kidding. But the wedding sounds lovely.
    Wishing you a lovely happy married life

    thank you for the wishes…but i was kidding sweetheart.. :D..it was a dream, read the italicized part of the post…sorry to disappoint you, but i’m not really married 😀


    • #52 by BlueMist on November 13, 2009 - 3:13 pm

      ha ha T. Loved your reply ! 😆

      I so wanted to write a comment like this. But your post title revealed every thing. 😛

      😆 someday you will get your chance 😆


  37. #53 by Gentle Whisperer on November 13, 2009 - 4:56 pm

    Congratulations! I hope you have a wonderful married life.. And may all your ups and downs be only in the bedroom. 😉

    Sorry, I’m incorrigible.

    ROFL…i guess you did not read the whole post 😛 …i did NOT get married..this was just a dream…thanks for the wishes, though :P…


    • #54 by Gentle Whisperer on November 14, 2009 - 4:44 am

      Sigh, this is what happens when I read blogs on the sly at work..

      😆 no problem…the wishes will come in handy when the real deal happens 😉


  38. #55 by TFT on November 15, 2009 - 12:14 am

    rofl….ok since you are saying it, i will think about it, ok? :D..


  41. #58 by Rohini on November 22, 2009 - 1:36 pm

    you caught me there!!! 😛
    i was about to scroll down and say congrats when my eyes caught the word dream!
    Anyway, imagine your nosy relatives have read the blog and have already dropped the word to your parents! 😀
