We've all heard about the big fat Indian wedding and we absolutely love them. But what we love more than these desi wedding are the big fat Punjabi weddings. They're loud and they're fun and the icing on the cake is the free flow of daru. We all know how much Punjabi's like to celebrate with good food, music and alcohol. Punjabi weddings are not just a magical occasion where two families unite along with the couple, it's also the place where you get to meet many different kinds of people. You get to make a lot of memories in these fun Indian weddings but there's also a lot of chaos and drama especially because of all the people involved and we all know how much our relatives love the drama. But there are a few things that are common at every desi wedding and that is the key characters that you meet at every Punjabi wedding. Other than a cousin named Honey and Monty, there are some common characters that you will always find in a desi Indian wedding. We all have that one odd chacha ji or mama ji who loves his drinks. You'll find him drinking as soon as the bar opens and he'll be the last man standing on the dance floor.
Updated: Jan 8. In this series I will share with you stories of other's, who like myself, have married into the Punjabi Culture and celebrated their own Big Fat Punjabi-Sikh Wedding. Though firstly there is some confusion around the difference between a Sikh and Punjabi Wedding merely because many weddings happen to predominately be Punjabi-Sikh Weddings. Therefore to clarify, Punjab is a state of India in which many different faiths exist not only that of Sikhism. Which means not every Punjabi Wedding will necessarily be of the Sikh Faith, celebrating the same wedding traditions. Sikhism is a religion that originated in the state of Punjab. So whilst majority of Punjabi's are Sikh's, not every Punjabi will be. Even so, the rituals and traditions of a Punjabi-Sikh Wedding can vary greatly between regions and family. Therefore even the most common traditions can differ in how they are celebrated and is usually a personal preference as to which traditions are participated in. Though for the most part many are quite similar.
