  • Dusky, chubby, fat, dark, skinny,
The stereotypes play bolder, 
When it comes to a bride,
The commentary around the wedding,
Revolves around the bride,
And sadly mostly her appearance,
Her choice of clothes and what have you,
Are all picked at and discussed in length,
Indian weddings pressure the brides,
To fit in,
To a particular sized dress,
To a particular shade of skin,
People fuss over the big day,
Making it seem like life is make or break,
That a girl should grow up,
Looking forward only to being a bride,
That everything in her life,
Should gravitate to that day,
And then the forget,
To tell her that patriarchy exists,
Runs deep and so does misogyny,
Then comes domestic abuse,
Sometimes in many forms,
So does normal everyday unhappiness,
They make her dream of romance,
While reality is bills and food on the table,
Chores and making a house a home,
No one prepares her for what is to follow,
In real life,
So let’s break the bubble,
Let’s accept and love ourselves as we come,
In all shapes and sizes,
In all colours of skin,
Let’s own being a bride,
But first let’s own living our lives,
Through good days and bad,
And then let’s go break all those stereotypes...

I feel strongly about Indian weddings and overall the bride feeling and the hype it gets... but more for later...
