The wedding season in Pakistan never fails to amuse and entertain people. The extravagant weddings present to you, not only the great decor and an opportunity to take amazing selfies, but also people who are great in their own ways. From people who pretend to be sophisticated (maybe they are) to those who have come from the village to attend “Chaudhary Jee k betay ka Walima”, weddings in Pakistan will always be the source of amusement.
You will see a great variety of eaters in Pakistani Weddings.
Wedding are incomplete without sophisticated aunties and their sophisticated talks. All they do is talk about the makeup kit they just bought with would cost the rest of the world a fortune. They would eat very little and that too with a fork to prevent their lipstick from fading.
The Gang with Plates:
Every wedding has a group of gangsters who would get the table farthest from the stage and closest to the buffet table. As soon as they hear the lids lift, revealing the hot steamy menu underneath, they will scatter. One of them will run for cold drinks, another for the salad, one of kababs and BBQ botis and the rest would try getting rice and salan. They are the people who are least worried about their image in the society. They would do whatever it takes to get all the nice boties and best BBQ pieces.
The Irritating couple who shares Everything:
One of the sights that irritates every single person on the wedding is that newlywed couple who wants to tell the world that they share everything (as if the world doesn’t know enough!). Those two would literally get everything on one plate and have cold drinks from one glass having two straws. The husband would gesture his wife with a smile signaling “Bethi raho. Main khana lata hun”. The single men definitely get jealous at the sight of wife force feeding the best botis in the plate to her “sarr ka taj”.
The Gaon walay:
If you are none of the above, you are most likely to get stuck in the crowd from the village at the feast. Literally, that’s the worst thing that could happen to you because those mini giants would push and pull you like no one has ever done before, taking all the best pieces away from your sight.
The over concerned parents:
Last but not the least, the overly concerned parents who make sure “salaami k paisay pooray hoye hon” by force-feeding their children at the wedding. They would gesture from the table far away asking if their ladla had enough tonight. The irony is that these parents would want their sons to have enough but their daughters to leave the impression on the aunties around that “yeh tou baari he nafees larki hai”.
If you go to the wedding look out for these kinds of eaters, they will definitely make the boring function pleasant and amusing.
