Day 3 – A Long Awaited Dream
100 Happy Days – Day 3
Happiness is weddings and being asked to be someone’s bridesmaid 😀
I have had many tiny & huge wishes. As a child I was very fond of pretty princess frocks, barbies, make up, long hair, nail polish etc. I was a typical girl and I still am. One of my greatest wishes were to be a bridesmaid. There was also another dream. In my childhood, it was to wear the princess frock. The huge fluffy, pretty, long dress with flairs. As I grew up, it changed to the elegant gowns. But in my place, I won’t be able to wear the gown at all. Not even for functions. Gowns don’t suit the kind of functions we have down here. So the only chance was to either go get settled in a foreign country, marry a christian or have a christian sort of wedding, or simply, be a bridesmaid. That would strike off two things off my list at once. The sad part was, I did not have any close friends who wear christians & who would ask me to be their bridesmaid. So this was a distant dream that I had written off until… I got a message today morning. A friend invited me for her marriage. And then, she threw the bomb at me,
‘And be my bridesmaid’.
My heart was beating like a drums set, my mind was racing and my brain was calculating,
‘Does she think that I’m someone else?’
While my heart was doing the pirouette,
Brain, ‘Did something go wrong?’
Heart, ‘Weeee! Weeee! Weeeeeeee!’
Brain, ‘Maybe she really thinks I’m someone else.’
Heart, ‘Gowwwwnnn! Pretty… long… gown!’.
Brain, ‘It’s costly you idiot!’
Heart, ‘I might go for manual labour – ploughing the fields and selling the harvests – for a month.’
Brain, ‘So she did call me, really.’
Heart, ‘Weeeeeee! Bridesmaid!’
That was the last pirouetting since my heart fainted due to overload of happiness. Hell yeah! I don’t know if I can make it to the wedding, I don’t know if I can afford the dress. But I felt happy about being asked. I had written off even the possibility of being asked. And when I know that it is possible, I feel happy. I will wear a gown, I will be a bridesmaid.
Not necessarily this year, not necessarily for this marriage. But yes, someday! 🙂
Okay, one day, may be you can attend my wedding in a gown 😀 😀
Something like a groomsmaid? 😛
Aww that sounded melodious until the last part. Man!!! I wish there was this concept of ‘groomsmaid’. Can u make it materialize for your marriage 😛 ? I would love to be a groomsmaid 😀
Did you read the newspaper today? 😀 😉
😛 😛 Illa
It is on the first page – about restrictions on spending for wedding functions – it is rather heavy; do read 😀
Oh yeah I heard about that. 😀 And yes I concur with them. But bridesmaids aren’t costly 😛
The dress is costly! 😀 Especially when you can’t have just one of them 😉
People with money go for the costly ones. If you’re not rich, you will learn get one at low prices 😉
As far as I know, the middle class do not choose bridesmaids or groomsmen – they choose the cousins to wander around in normal clothing 😀
Haha oh ya. I forgot about that. It has not been so common around here either le?
Yes, differs according to the communities too! 🙂
Go ahead and fulfill your long time dream.You have manifested it through constant thought.Have a great time Rajani!
Thanks a lot Raj. 😀 Hopefully I will 🙂
Hahaha…dreams! Sometimes if you wish for even the most impossible things, you may get them…the universe conspires to get it for you! I hope you get all your heart’s desires and more!
Yeah true 😀 Unfortunately, I couldn’t go for that wedding. But I still am waiting for that dream to come true and I believe it will 😀 Thank you Kala!
