[How not to]~Smile at your wedding!! ;)

22 Jun

There are certain places where and events when we got to put in that extra effort in whatever we ought to do. For instance, smiling at a wedding…especially when it’s your own wedding! ๐Ÿ˜›

Smiling, they say is infectious. When you smile, do so wholeheartedly!

To all those who are unmarried as yet, here’s a piece of advice from the author’s very own experience:
When you stand on the stage posing for the innumerous photographs being clicked by those fancy flashing instruments, that’s the very moment you need to gain composure, maintain focus and smile…neat and nice!

Note to the bridegroom: You need to smile at your very best dude…as once you get down that stage that day, it’s your new wife who does all the smiling! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Note to the bride: Incase your new hubby is not smiling on stage, read and remind the above note to him. :mrgreen:

Now why do we end up giving weird expressions, when all that we are expected to do is give a lovely smile, however fake that it is?!!! Well, there could be reasons like:
a) we are tired of smiling continously.
b) we are bored of it.
c) ok we accept that we are plain and simply lazy.

Or there could be actual reasons like:
i) we don’t know the people who are standing next to us in the group photograph.
ii) we need to save energy for certain activities later ๐Ÿ˜‰
iii) our jaws are paining.

Anyway, when you are on stage…
1) Do not, I repeat DO NOT smile with your eyes closed. You won’t know how much your friends could pull you on seeing that picture at a later stage.

2) Do not smile with your mouth open…it’s technically not smiling at all.

3) Do not smile clenching your teeth…might expose your animal instincts!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

4) Do not smile so weird that it seems you’ve already given up. In short, don’t smile like a loser!

5) Agreed that it’s your big day and that you might be looking stunning, but don’t look stunned. ๐Ÿ˜€

But then at the end of the day, as I said in the note to the bridegroom above: Only one smiles/laughs at the end of it all. ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway…I know that, how much ever we prepare for the big day…we always end up with at least one weird picture of ours on stage, which we would want to change till our very last breath!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some things are always out of our control!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Easier said than done ๐Ÿ™‚
    Only very few people have the talent to appear natural when they smile for a pic!

    yep marriage itself is so stupid , not to mention smiling for the entire ceremony ! one of the idiosyncrasies of life ! I am sorry for those who marry and smile for the ceremony knowing perfectly that I am soon in line . But when in stupidland , be more stupid , Be borat ! when in Khazakistan !

    Raji, thanks…i think i exhibited all types ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Writerzblock, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ The ladies always have a reason to cover up…like the one you gave ๐Ÿ˜›

    Shanti, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ No no…i do remember the good times but then when someone writes about the good times, not all feel good…only the moments which suck, ppl tend to smile on…either cos they can relate to it or have had better memorable moments than what they read!

    Cloudy, thanks…experience speaks yes, but when was I silent in the first place? ๐Ÿ˜›

    SJ, thanks. Well in this moment, especially…there seems to be nothing natural ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yes yes…Life’s a sitcom…see the positives or otherwise…at any later time, they tend to bring a smile…we always believe there was a better way to do that than how we did it…its always funny…this life! ๐Ÿ™‚
