    This week beginning started with marriages . On Sunday I attended a marriage in a Hotel and evening attended a Reception . Today there were 5 marriages for which we got invitation , it is not possible to attend all the marriages today so yesterday morning attended for Vratham in a relative's marriage and evening for Reception in another marriage. Today had breakfast in a marriage , where the muhurtham was from 6.30 a.m. to 7.30 a.m. and later went for another marriage where the muhurtham was from 10.30 a.m. to 12 pm. Had lunchthere. One more marriage we have to visit their house to bless the couple.

    The sarees which were in the cupboard all came out and could be used . Also the chains I made I could wear them. Yesterday was so happy to receive a compliment saying I am looking beautiful from a beautiful friend. I always admire her beauty and she has a long hair which she has maintained very well. Today was very happy to receive compliment for my chain and a lady was asking me whether I will make for her and what will be the cost. I told her you buy the beads and give me and I will make for you. It seems she stays in Indonesia and is here for two months. I was so happy to receive from that lady from Indonesia.

    Now a days the latest trend is the stage for reception is arranged according to the colour of the dress the bride wears. In Sunday reception they had the colour was pink and the bride looked beautiful in pink. Instead of Sofa or chairs for the couple they had nicely arranged the place where they sat with pink cloth , the backgroud was also nicely arranged with pink cloth and flowers. I had not taken the camera , otherwise would have taken photo of that lovely stage.

    I was admiring the ladies who wore lovely sarees with matching jewellery and some had cute bags matching their saree. Seeing the jewellery I also got idea to make more jewellery . All the brides were young and looking cute.

    Though I am old I still like to dress up the best and enjoy the marriages, especially the malai marral. Earlier they never used to have marriages in Karthigai month but now a days they have that month too

    God bless all the couples and keep them happy

    Good to know you could bless multiple couples, managing your time...

    I Love attending marriages/Functions..

    1. I enjoy multiple dishes in marriage/function.

    2. I get to see lot of distant relatives and even close cousins we only meet in these kinda of functions.

    3. I Love to see ladies get dressed at their best, i love watching their new hair style, saree,
    their accessories, and especially gold designs...

    4. Last but not least, i will get to use my Pattu/Reshme sarees and gold..

    dear viji ma , glad to see you back to your old self .
    you have made me jealous by attending all these functions . here not much chance to dress up.
    age has no connection with trying to look good and dignified.
    congratulations for the compliments .
