“Saved for years, for daughter’s wedding!”
Title and the line above, are in response to Shweta’s Six word story prompt: Wedding
My mom had an FD account, lump sum, all to be blown up for my wedding!
I can never forget the argument I had with my mom that day, on why should she blow up the savings for one day!! She argued that it’s how things work. Me and hubby, sort of dint want it that way. We tried to make her understand, to keep the guests minimal and wedding simple. Indian weddings are never settled at “simple”. When she just dint budge, We concluded on our arguments and split the expenses. Me and my husband took up a big chunk of the expenses. We blew up all our savings. But we were young, we could afford to spend, it was our marriage, getting married to each other was our decision, how the marriage should take place was partly our parents’ desires and dreams too… we just couldn’t let our parents’ take up all expenses! We had to conclude on something that fits all!! 😄
I feel less guilty and some more pride within, thinking of the fact that we two, took care that of our wedding expenses!
Thanks for reading my story 😊
