“Shadi main gueston ko sabse ziada kiya acha lagna chahiae?”
“Khana!! Ye lighting shigting phool bail sab bhool jaega”.
(From the movie Band Baja Baraat)
Isn’t it the truth? Desi weddings are all about food in the end. All the guests will talk about shaadi ka khana more than anything else. What about the bride and groom? I was that bride who couldn’t enjoy the food of her own wedding (various reasons including the nose jewellery I was wearing lol). Wedding is the most important day of one’s life and what pity that you don’t gotta eat your favourite meal on the biggest day of your life. Damn!! Heartbreaking.
Times are changing and so does the rituals. What an amazing couple Munawal and Zubair are to break the stereotype of desi wedding food on their wedding day. The bride loves McDonald’s and the groom loves her, so he takes her to a McDonald’s right after their Nikah event. And they went there in their wedding attire. Imagine!! I don’t know which branch it was but wasn’t it surprising for McDonald’s staff or other diners? I am sure it was. I find it so cute tbh. Kinda wedding goals. Oh Gosh!! I was so hungry when I had to travel for 5 hours after my rukhsati and there wasn’t any McDonald’s on the way back then. I am not crying, you are. *wipes tears* Why am I having flashbacks of my own wedding. Kinda regret not going to McDonald’s, perhaps.
Can I call this a McFairy Tale wedding? Absolutely delicious beginnings. Imagine gobbling down your favorite McMeal on such an important day of your life. How celebratory. Thank you Munawal and Zubair for thinking out of the box and being so casual about your desires. Such chotti chotti khushyian makes life worth living for. Wishing you a wonderful and McDonald’s filled life ahead.
*Going to have McFlurry in spirit of your cutesy wedding celebration*
