"Punjabiyaan Di Shaan Vakhri", Punjabis all over the world believe in living life king size. Be it their loud behaviour, their extremely yummy and hearty food stuffed with Ghee and love or their equally large heart. They don't believe in doing anything simply because they have to. The same way, when a new Punjabi couple gets married, the whole world gets to know about it. You wonder how? In the most hilarious and cute way ever.
Punjabis have some unique traditions that are incorporated into their lives once they get married. These things might be odd for a lot of people but for them, it is a part of their culture and the cutest way to celebrate a newly married life.
1. 'Chura' Nahi Yeh Mera Dil Hai. Dekho Toote Na
One of the most quintessential ways of knowing that a new Punjabi couple is around you is by the combination of some red coloured bangles coupled with some bedazzled silver or golden stone studded thick ones the bride wears.
These are called Punjabi Churas and are considered as a good omen for a newlywed bride. The brides usually wear it for at least six months to a year. So don't be surprised if you spot a girl wearing shorts/skirt/dress and donning these bangles. They sometimes look weird but mostly they look extremely happy and radiant.
2. Shopping bags. Loads of Shopping bags and 'Gediyaan'!
One thing any girl cannot live without is shopping and when it's a Punjabi girl, the shopping is off through the roof. And who carries those huge bags with equal enthusiasm? Yes! You guessed it right. There adorable Punjabi husbands in their plush cars.
Now, we are not trying to stereotype people (we kind of are!) but newly married couples absolutely love shopping and showing off their brand new car. From new clothes, kitchenware items, home decor stuff to food.
Be it a new Punjabi couple or any other Indian newly married couple, the flowery first six months of your wedding makes you do a lot of things with gusto. this is one of them too!
3. The Colours of Love - Colour-coordinating Clothes
Have you ever seen a new Punjabi couple wearing the same colour of clothes and twinning from head to toe? The men ever match their turbans with the whole attire. The utter sweetness of it all could either give you diabetes or amaze you till you start rolling your eyes in utter disbelief.
They don't do it just once but every damn day and never get tired of it at all. You know why? 'Kyunki har rang bohot kuch kehta hai!'
4. The Endless 'Pairiponas'
How do you know if a new Punjabi couple has arrived at a family function? By the numerous rounds of Pairiponas these poor people have to go through. Metting the uncles and the aunts and their kids and their better halves and their relatives and some more distantly and closely related people.
