Bestie Ki Shaadi


Here, are few types of bridesmaids you will encounter at every wedding!

  1. Bride’s Shadow: Every Bride wants companions who always remain along her side to guide her at every step. She has been by the bride’s side ever since the wedding date gets fixed, and is probably her soul sister. Right from feeding the bride during her Mehendi function to helping her get into her wedding attire, she is her shadow. She is right on her bestie’s side until her vidaai.  So basically, she is bride’s sister.
  2. The planner: Most important bridesmaid is one who plans everything. The one you will see walking around with a diary and a phone in her hand, managing everything! Right from making sure that the mandap is well decorated to checking with the groom’s side on the whereabouts of the baraat, the planner will make sure that her bestie’s big day goes as planned! A planner will give her 100 percent to make her besties’ wedding dreamy.
  3. The party starter: Not saying that she is the exact opposite of the disciplinarian, but this is a bridesmaid who is as cool as a cucumber. You will see her mingling with guests, getting all the juicy gossip, tasting the yummy chaat and shaking a leg on the dance floor with the baraatis. She is the fun one, but unfortunately, is not reliable for work. She is not shy at all and will be the first one who will shake her legs on bhangra tune.
  4. Social media freak: You will encounter this bridesmaid at almost every wedding. She will post all the pictures from chooda ceremony to vidyaai on social media with the hashtag #BestieKishaadi!
