I mean smile. It’s not going to kill you.

Honestly. Is it really that depressing? πŸ˜“πŸ˜­

It is that depressing when they are forced/ arranged with someone they agree to but in love with someone else.

I was just browsing some photos on Instagram and none of them seemed happy.

I don’t know, all I know is I’ll be crying so much when my day arrives next year! Out of happiness of course.

Many do look happy.
Almost all my asian female friends who got married as teenagers did.
While their father's tended to look very gloomy, probably obsessing over how much the spectacular wedding was costing them.

They probably get told by their mothers/aunties to stop smiling for about 6 hours because of the other judgmental aunties that are going to come and backbite about the bride

This. I believe everyone should have a right to choosing their partner. I mean arrange doesn’t always work out neither does love at times but at least with love marriages you can get to know them at your own pace and progress it.

Not generalising. Just an observation.

Allow the backbite man. I hate those aunties or people who gossip in general.

Like who died and made them dictator?

That might just be the way the photo shoot was done afterwards.

On my cousins wedding, in Pakistan, I was wearing a dress which looked backless and had half sleeves. So many ppl went to my mum and said I am 13 and shouldn't be wearing stuff like that and it is embarrassing. I was 13...literally.

I'm Indian and have literally never seen that but they may not feel like smiling or anything or they might cry or it's arranged :dontknow: Sounds like you're generalising though even if it is an observation

Uhhh this isn't true. I'm south asian and if anything brides get to pick who they marry these days. Please don't push this stereotype because it's simply not true in many cases anymore, especially in the UK. Its people like you that give our culture a bad rep
I am Pakistani babe πŸ₯° I think I know and it was a reason and do not lie do not lie, parents usually stop kids from love marriage. I have seen it countless of times. So please, I wasn't giving bad rep I was simply just stating stuff I have seen personally.
Off course time has evolved, so many changes have occurred and will continue so.
