Wedding Celebrations in India : Announcement of a moving in ceremony

Infamous Big Fat Indian Weddings are a dream wedding for most people. (& yes, I call them infamous because they represent nothing, really.) But really, it is just a bucketload of crap, a very flamboyant announcement of a moving-in ceremony that really serves no other purpose than
  1. Ego satisfaction : The primary purpose it serves is the ego satisfaction of the families & the society. That the whole junta was made part of the 'celebrations'.
  2. Societal announcement about moving in together : The primary need of the wedding celebration is that you have to tell the fucking junta that you are moving in together. 
  3. Public announcement that the couple is going to start having sex. (okay, I am being very naive here thinking that they haven't had sex before marriage)
  4. Serving food to the rich, instead of the poor. Really just think of how many impoverished people can be fed/helped with the money that is spent on gala dinners for the well-to-do.
& yes, I am having a forced-upon-me wedding celebration soon & this post is coming from my very close observation & experience of this stupidity called Big Fat Indian Wedding.
