Weddings are beautiful; they are grand and nostalgic and… Ok who are we kidding, they are EXHAUSTING! Sure, the food and the well-dressed people for eye candy makes them a little bearable. But having said that, there are parts of wedding that we aren’t completely a fan of. So during this last season of weddings (Yes, we have seasons) we came across the types of people you will inevitably encounter in Telugu Weddings! Feel free to tell us if you can think of anymore!
1. The Receptionists: A group of youngsters at the entrance fighting over who gives the flower and who sprays the perfume.
2. The Chief Guest: A senior uncle sitting right at the front like he owns the place and paid for the entire wedding.
3. Busy Aunty: One aunty who runs around the mandapam handling … actually nothing. But looks busy as hell.
4. Bossy Uncle: One random uncle who wears really starchy clothes and makes it his job to yell at all the workers and to make sure everyone has had the food.
5. The Trapped Parents: Mom and Dad of bride looking straight up exhausted! You can literally read their mind screaming “Let’s get it done, already!”
6. The Tiny Humans: A bunch of kids from absolutely random families who decide to gang up, run around and make it a mission to make as many people as possible trip over them.
7. The Unimpressed Panthulu: Somehow, every panthulu in Telugu weddings start acting like moody girlfriend and threaten to leave if anything delays by even a second.
8. The Pack of Owls: Groom’s friends, who turn into the noisiest people in the world when they get together. Probably marking their territory.
9. The Selfie Queens: This species is mostly the bride’s gang of girlfriends whose sole aim of attending the wedding is to dress up and get the perfect Display Picture.
10. Unknown Relatives: There’ll always be that one relative (you have absolutely no clue who it is) who turns up out of nowhere describing every disturbing detail about your childhood.
11. Match Makers: These middle aged aunties make it their life ambition to scan out the unmarried ones in the wedding and get them hitched.
