“I like the fact that my partner is very calm and doesn’t get nervous, whereas I do and therefore the term opposites attract is something that clicked in our relationship.”
“I can’t imagine myself in an arranged marriage. I can understand the values of it and I think it’s different. I would be scared if I had to go through an arranged marriage. I saw an Indian wedding the other day, which was an arranged marriage. They were a young couple and they looked very scared. But in an English wedding it’s very different, the couple are very happy, they’ve known each other for a very long time and made commitments to each other and I wouldn’t associate feeling very scared at a wedding day. In some cases it will work and people will be really happy in an arranged marriage.”
“There was a phase in my life I was in for arranged marriages and then there was a phase in life when i was against it. Right now i don’t know where I stand. And for me love could be anything. It could be the platonic type or the non platonic type.” #DIYTales
“I have been married for 25 years and to me love is affection and to care. I have had an arranged marriage and I do feel dating is an important factor as it’s important to know what you’re getting into and who you are going with. I guess I was lucky as even my courtship period was a very short one.”
As you know, we at Wedeterna believe in the DIY philosophy. But that doesn’t stop us from finding unique and interesting ways to play cupid. Which is why we shortlisted ‘Top 10 Conversation Cafés ‘ in Bangalore. Cafés with the prefect blend of an inviting ambiance that feeds conversations and a touch of local flavor. We even made suggestions on our favorite dishes on the menu at each of these cafés. Just to give singles more options on places to meet, connect and interact.
We even went a step further and organized a selfie contest at the cafés. All one had to do was walk into a café on our list of Conversation Cafés, take a selfie and Instagram it to stand a chance to win a grand prize! Each and every selfie had a distinct quantity to it. Some were fun, some were romantic and almost all of them were wonderfully unique.
So we would like to thank each and every one who participated in it and loved our initiative. It wasn’t easy to choose a winner but we had to. Congratulations to Parag Gupta & Namita Kulkarni for winning the Wedeterna Selfie Contest!
We would also like to thank all the cafés for collaborating with us on this event.
And we have our winners Aravind Ganapathi for best selfie and Aparna Vinod K for audience popular selfie.
Congratulations!! That concludes our ‘Selfie At A Wedding’ competition. Big thank you to everyone who participated. Overall, all the selfies had a unique aspect to them. Thanks for sharing your beautiful moments with us.
“I’m not yet married. We’ve been in a relationship, it’s been 6 years. She’s my relative and we’ve loved each other since we were kids. One day I asked her if she would like to marry me and it’s been good since.
Love it is not just at first sight, you need to get to know the person, you need to see if you are fit to be in love, you need to see if you can accommodate each other.”
