Even though I was exhausted after diving for three days straight, I could never pass up going to an Indian wedding. By the time we got back from diving we only had enough time to shower and get ready.
Chitra and Sumathi, the (AMAZING) cooks on campus, helped us get ready and wrapped us in our saris. There was a lot of laughing and smiling while they were doing it so I think they had a good time. Chitra even gave us some bangles and a bindi (the dot on the forehead) which meant the world.
It wasn’t hard to find the ceremony we just followed the lights and music. When we got there we realized it was a full blown party! The bride and groom were taking pictured with everyone, so we did that, then ate dinner. The food was delicious!! It was served on a huge leaf and eaten (like all meals here) with our hands.
After dinner we socialized and as it turns out, people wanted pictures with us as well as the bride and groom. At one point we had a line for pictures just like the happy couple, it was a blast! The wedding was not what I had expected but all in all so much fun!
