A1: And that's how it began..!!

I was rokafied (26 January, 2018) and the wedding date was fixed. I was going to be someone’s wife in next 4 months and 7 days. I was already tagged as bhabhi, chachi, mami and what not. I needed to behave responsibly because I was going to be a daughter-in-law (luckily, I am a daughter, thanks to mumma and papa J ), how was I expected to not have jitters?

Obviously, I was super anxious, nervous and worried. I used to get panic attacks so often that I didn’t know what was happening to me? Was that a right decision? Was it too early? What was I supposed to do? What the hell was I supposed to feel?

And that’s how my journey began. From Ms. Aakansha Dhingra to suddenly the would-be-bride. Everything changed but beautifully J

I was super nervous, but my fiancé made me so comfortable that I forgot all the anxiety and nervousness in a small period of time. But somewhere I was sure that everything will sink in and I will gradually get comfortable with all the new relationships.

My courtship was so beautiful that I never wanted it to end. My fiancé (okay, husband now :P) made it a point to make every moment special for me. He gave me many surprise visits, planned a lot of surprises for me, we went for many outings, ate our heart outs, laughed madly, shared so many secrets, argued on stupid things, had a few tough talks and with all that happening, fell in love with each other. How he made me see the world differently couldn’t stop me but fall for him.

The initial days of courtship period are those days when you don’t realize what is going on. From being single to hitched, there is a huge change which is felt after a few weeks. Same were mine. Those were the most beautiful days. It was the time when I didn’t know what do I need to do? Do I need to start shopping? What do I shop, from where and what all do I shop? Should we start looking for the venue? Let’s prepare the guest list- etc etc etc. But wait, is it too early for all these? Should I just wait for some more time?

For those of you who have been through this- will understand what all am I talking about and for those who are going through this- Pretty girls- take a break, breathe! A deep breathe. Smile and enjoy. Feel it. Feel that you are hitched. Be happy that you have got a partner for life. Forget everything else. You will have to do a lot of work, but not for now. Live in the moment.

Now is the best time to know your partner and spend quality time with him over any other thing.

Find joy in simple things. Each text will make you smile. His call will give you a happy break in your busy work schedule.

I will speak from my experience- you will love each moment if you just go with the flow. Don’t over think, just don’t!

I would also love to share my most favorite moment here when my fiancé gave me a surprise proposal. The moment which will always be extremely close to my heart.

He ensured to show me how and what he felt for me before giving our relationship a new name. It was a moment which cannot be described in words.

A restaurant fully booked and a corner table beautifully decorated with red roses (I still don’t know how he knew about my mad love for red roses), heart shaped balloons with all my pictures, a tiara for me, red velvet cake, a coke and both of us. As soon as I entered, I was amazed and surprised. I felt as if my heart stopped for a while. As I walked closer, he went on his knees and proposed me with a bracelet (he cannot be usual, ring was boring for him), asked me if I will be his partner-in-crime forever (in his own unique way ofcourse, where he said “ main puri duniya sort kr skta hoon, kya tum mujhe sort krke rakhogi?”). at that moment, I saw the honesty in his eyes and I just fell for him. I had tears of happiness in my eyes and I said nothing but yes!

Moments of happiness and joy :)

We had a great time together and that’s how we began our beautifully journey from you and me to us.

For those who are already hitched, what is your special moment?

For those who are waiting/about to be hitched- trust me, the wait is worth it.

A penny for your thoughts about the starting days of courtship period?
