So choose one of the auspicious wedding dates 2023 that you feel will perfectly commemorate your love story! Here is a rundown on the most frequently asked questions that will calm your nerves before making this big decision:

FAQs

*What are the most popular months to get married in 2023?

The months of October, November, December, January, February and the first half of March are the most popular choice and the busiest when it comes to Hindu Marriages in India. But the month you want to choose may also vary depending on your geographic location and also your partner’s preference. What we can tell you for sure is that whichever month you choose, it is going to be special for both of you, forever!

*Which is better – a summer wedding or a winter wedding?

It is up to you. Summer weddings and winter weddings have their own perks. Summers have some amazing trends that you can incorporate into your weddings such as floral decor, pastel-colored outfits and jewelry, and more. However, winter weddings are more popular in India as the weather is pleasant and you can wear all the heavy outfits and jewelry you want without having to worry about sweating or your makeup getting ruined.

 *What are the best marriage dates in 2023 according to Hindu astrology?

All of the above-listed dates are according to marriage yog 2023 drikpanchang and are the best marriage dates in 2023 according to Hindu Astrology.

*Is it better to get married on a weekend or a weekday?

While weekday weddings are more affordable, weekend weddings may pinch your wallet a bit. A weekday wedding will make your pocket happy, however, people generally prefer to get married on weekends as it is convenient for all of their guests to attend the wedding. But since it is your special day, you make the final decision about it.

*What holidays should I avoid?

Better to stay off all the family-oriented holidays if you want everyone in your family to show up on your wedding day. Since these are peak travel times as well, you may find booking flights or train reservations next to impossible.

*Can I have an off-season wedding?

Of course! Let us count you some of the major perks of having an off-season wedding. The first one off the top of our head is the availability of the vendors that you may not be able to secure otherwise. You can see a downturn in the seasonal pricing of venues and wedding-related services. The things you may have crossed off your list, consider them out of your reach may well fall within your budget during the off-season.

*What should I keep in mind while setting a date?

In the Hindu culture, all the important decisions are taken in consultation with the Pandit Ji. So you may also want to consult an astronomer to find the best wedding dates in the 2023 Hindu calendar. Don’t forget to check in with family, friends, relatives, and the VIPs whose absence is a dealbreaker for you. Talk to your vendors before you send the wedding invitations for prints.

Raksha Bandhan Special: 12 Types of Brothers We Love, Hate & Cannot Ignore!

Raksha Bandhan

Brothers come in all shapes, sizes, moods, and temperaments. No, no, we’re not marketing our partner-in-crime here today. Instead, on the special occasion of Raksha Bandhan 2023, we highlight the prime characteristics of Indian brothers that you’re sure to find in your sibling.

Whether older or younger, these better halves (before we find out our prince charming that is) are the hardest to let go of despite the love-hate relationship we share with them. So, before we get all sentimental over the super awesome and special place brothers have in our hearts, let us indulge in some serious personality analysis – just for kicks!

1. The Golden Child

Image Source:

This type of brother in most cases is the youngest sibling – the one that can never say, see or do wrong in the eyes of the parents!! It must’ve been YOU! These ones will ensure you get into trouble for everything they do wrong, even if they are living in another country. Now, this kinda skill needs to be acknowledged, innit?

2. The Convict

The Convict!

Then on the other hand we have the scapegoat brother. He could win the Oscars for attracting trouble and getting blamed for everything that’s wrong with the world. If you’re the ‘laadli’ of the house, you’ve probably bullied him no end, so you know.

3. The Life of the Party!

Image Source: Whitesage Weddings 

This is the favorite kind, especially when you have to go for one of them boring family dos. If not for him, you’d be bored to tears. Now you’re just teary-eyed cos you can’t stop laughing until your sides hurt. These ones are also pretty creative with taking jabs at relatives, calling someone’s bluff, or indulging in random timepass conversation, peppered with just the right amount of swear words and generally sounding funny. 

4. The Celebrity!

Image Source: Camilton Productions 

No! A movie star brother is not the type we are talking about unless we particularly mention Sallu Bhai and his sister troupe. Now, that is definitely a large enough category enough to have its own sub-heading in our blog. This is more like your “id ka Chaand” sorta brother. Do not confuse him with “Chaand ka tukda”, although one is directly proportionate to the other. This Bhai Sahab is so busy, that he never shows up for anything, anywhere, anytime and when he does, he hogs all the attention. 

5. The Rockstar!

Image Source: Simran Takkar 

Yes, boys love music, sports, bikes, and fast cars, there is no denying it. We all at one point or another, admire those brothers who carry the cool swag with such ease and nonchalance You love the way they hold the guitar and sing, play the drums and do everything with so much style, even something as mundane as buying bread ande. Their cool factor doesn’t just give you all the swag goals, it also makes you the most popular amongst your friends who’ll probably give an arm and a leg to be around you, him, and your house.

6. The ATM

Swag aside, this is the one we all really hope for, don’t we? “Bhai ke paise, apne paise!” Hide a few secrets, run a few errands, tell a sob story (and tell it well), and you are bound to be rewarded. 

7. The Teacher / The Third Parent

Like two weren’t enough, right?? Unless this third parent comes with a financial advantage, in a combo package with the trait mentioned above, he can be the most annoying. “Lecture sunao par paise bhi kharch karo.” This is the “I need to be paid if you need to be tolerated” kinda brother!

8. The Copy Cat

Image Source: Shades Photography 

To these ones we say, “GET A LIFE!” 

9. The Side-Kick

Image Source: Naqsh Photography 

This type of brother is easy to fool, trusts you blindly, and will move mountains for you, literally! You’d also want him with the combo ATM pack. But pyaari behena, please remember – THEY DO NOT EXIST!

10. The – I am Always the Best

On the other side of the green pastures, there are these. The  ‘I am always the best’ and ‘I am always right’ kind.  Be it in academics, career, extra-curricular activities, falling in love, or making babies, they are always a few steps ahead, making you look ‘oh so bad’. 

11. The Bully / Annoying

Image Source: Dream Diaries 

This type is self-explanatory. If your brother has never annoyed or bullied you, fix an appointment with a psychologist. That’s part of the bro-sis rule book and we promise it’ll help you sleep better at night.

12. The Twin / Soulmate / Bestie

The Twin / Soulmate / Bestie

This type, although a very rare species, does exist. He is less a pesty brother and more a best friend. Your sibling soul mate will probably watch your back at all times. Just watch out a bit though, cos he might have a pretty strong opinion on the real one.

We hope you had fun discovering the many types of brothers, ladies. Share the love. 

Happy Rakhsha Bandhan! 🙂

5 Iconic Looks of Kajol from Her Superhit Movies

Kajol Iconic Looks

Image Source: Instagram/Kajol

Later this week, Kajol is going to celebrate her 48th birthday. Blunt, bright-eyed and brilliant, she has been a prominent personality ever since she stepped into Bollywood. I have grown up watching her movies and gawking at her like a starry-eyed fan each time she and Shah Rukh Khan made an appearance on the screen.

Considering I am named after her (yes, I really am), I considered her to be a source of fashion inspiration. Right from rocking that red dungaree with the bob cut to dreaming of rocking a georgette sari with the wind blowing through my hair and showing off my torso under that sheer drape. There are some incredible outfits to take away from every movie that she has starred in. Here are 5 iconic looks of Kajol that she wore in her movies and you can rock during a wedding: 

1. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

Image Source: Tumblr

Before transformation videos became famous, Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai had already done it. She went from the tomboy rocking caps and cargo pants in college to the graceful woman stunning everyone in a rust pink lehenga choli and statement dangling earrings (which were absolute goals, by the way). Manish Malhotra was the costume designer for the movie so you should definitely consider the choice of a jacket with a mid slit paired with a bandhani print lehenga for your outfit inspiration. 

2. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

Image Source: Pinterest

The palat…palat…palat moment sure did send people into a frenzy and set the standard for all lover boys to know if their beloved was the one or not. The outfits that Kajol wore throughout the movie started making headlines. What took the cake was the green lehenga-choli that Kajol wore during her Mehendi ceremony. The unique shade of green combined with the traditional gold jewelry broke stereotypes when only pink and red is worn by the bride. 

3. My Name is Khan

Image Source: Giphy

Pretty sure I am not the only one who was moved to tears while watching this film. Kajol wore a bright green and pink salwar kameez in My Name is Khan for her Mehendi. Let me just say, I hope to wear that same combination when the day arrives. It is so colorful, and festive and fits in with the celebratory mood. 

4. Karan Arjun

Image Source: Stardust

Karan Arjun aagaye and they brought along Kajol in a sexy avatar! She made her entry in the film in a navy blue two-piece outfit. The halter neck combined with the large floral print on the flared skirt had girls running from store to store, trying to emulate her look. Needless to say, after those few months, halter necks are all that you saw! Whatever the theme may be, the to-be bride should keep this outfit as an option for the pre-wedding photoshoot. 

5. Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham

Image Source: Gifs

Aimlessly running in the desert with the wind in my hair and my saree pallu trailing – that’s the dream. Every saree that Kajol wore in Suraj Hua Madham from Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham became desirable and monotone sarees reached their peak of popularity. While it is fun to play with prints and colors, why not take a trip down the Bollywood version of a memory lane and rock a monotone saree for the next wedding that you attend?

Let us know in the comments below which is your favorite movie of Kajol!

Raksha Bandhan Special: A Brother Pours Out His Heart in this Wedding Video!

A brother-sister relationship is one that can’t compare to any other. From quarreling about eating the last piece of chocolate cake to World War III-level fights over the TV remote, these disagreements and differences develop into something so beautiful and special, that it’s difficult to describe in words. This is why, this Raksha Bandhan, we decided to bring to you a video that warmed our hearts like no other. A wedding video filled with happy moments of the bride and groom, but more importantly, a wedding video where a brother poured out his heart of love for his sister in a way no one else has before. “I have a feeling I’m gonna be an absolute emotional wreck on the day of the wedding and everyone else is gonna be okay,” He says as he talks about his little sister AKA his princess. This south-Indian wedding complete with little décor details and bridal jewelry inspires us to have a friendship just like Divya and her brother did.

 “From childhood, I’ve noticed that there can’t be a person who is as good as my brother.” – Divya.

This Raksha Bandhan, give your sister or your brother a gift that compares to no other. A gift of love and support but most of all, a gift of friendship that will last for eons. Dive into a relationship that will only grow stronger whether she goes away she goes away or he stays right next door to you.  Check out this beautiful wedding video that embraces the true meaning of Raksha Bandhan shot with so much love by The Marigold Company.
