My Mom has a relative who recently got married. After the wedding, they announced they were not doing a vidai because they want the celebration to be a happy one. So there was loud music and happy greetings instead.
I really want to do this because the thought of moving away from my parents and saying any kind of goodbye is very difficult for me, and on that day, I know it will be too much for me to do. I really really liked that idea.
FI is keen on it. As far as we know, it's not a religious thing, but a cultural thing. He hates vidais...he has a very hard time watching them and has told me he cannot bear having to watch me do it as well. He's an emotional guy
I don't think it's a bad idea. I think I'd rather celebrate getting a new family and being married. I want to say hello to and hug all the people who came. Yes, there may be a few tears, but I know now that it can be changed.
I really like the idea. What do you guys think?
