P.s. @dsgirl DITTO yaar.. We wrote same thing same time

Exactly even in our community it happens only with an immediate family and then d ceremony with close relatives when d rishta is filled..

Ye to ekdum different hai..bt i m loving it!

See the Bhallas didnt bring ANY family... they borrowed Iyer's
There is not 100 people only 20 odd... Bhallas brought friends, Iyers mein Bala ke parents and Bua's family thats it...

anyway Iyer weddings are ELABORATE three day things... no dancing singing, just rituals... it happens at a wedding halls where both parties stay over for three daysBig smile
Iyer everything is ultra religious... less showy but more ritualistic... very different
