Indian weddings while steeped in rituals can be a great form of entertainment. But this can be jeopardized by frayed tempers, tensions and disappointments, mainly due to ego problems.
In order to keep it peaceful the bride and the groom-should involve all close family members and friends in the preparation of the wedding by dividing the responsibilities with unquestionable faith and respecting their decisions.
Traditionally the groom's relations are given more importance with the bride family giving them the special attention and extra care.
Special attention should also be taken over place settings to avoid misunderstanding. Close relatives should feel appreciated and respected.
The groom and the bride should learn to be tolerant towards loud relatives of their in-laws as these issues can be tackled later.
The newlyweds are good humouredly teased so do not take this opportunity and break the ice between family and friends.
