They say, marriages are made in heaven. The stress of planning a wedding can be too much to handle for some couples. Enough so that the their special day — which they’ve been planning for what seems like forever — may be called off altogether. But those marriages which do not see the light of the day have some brilliant reasons for their fallout.
Buckle up, ladies and gentleman, because you’re about to read some of the wildest reasons that a wedding was called off.
10- No dog, no wedding
A Bangalore based girl rejected an ‘excellent good-looking and well off guy because he failed to understand her love for dogs and wouldn’t allow her to keep one after marriage. Looks like the loyal furry friend did come to her rescue here.
9- No toilet? No wedding!
A woman agreed to marry a man in Kanpur only if he built a toilet in his home by the wedding date. When he failed to do so, this high school graduate called off the wedding. She later went on to marry another man who had a toilet in his home.
8- Not enough lights to continue with wedding
After the groom’s side demanded for better lighting during the garland ceremony, and the bride’s family refused, a massive fight broke out between the groom and his would-be father-in-law. The bride’s family refused to get their daughter married in a family that can create such a ruckus for ‘lights’.
7- Relationship Modi-fied to nil
A couple called-off their wedding after the two got into a heated discussion about the Prime Minister’s economic policy. The bride held Modi responsible for the economic slowdown, while the businessman groom thought otherwise.
6- Groom’s closeness to bhabhi enrages bride’s family
The groom’s bhabhi kissed him just before the garland ceremony and later danced with him on the dance floor. As the two matched each other’s steps, the bride’s family got furious and called off the wedding. Kyunki bhabhi ji ghar par hai!
5- Chicken Biryani breaks off a wedding
The bride’s family sent 30 kg Chicken Biryani as a gift to the groom’s family, unaware of them being vegetarian. When the issue was blown out of proportion on the wedding day, the bride decided to call-off the wedding. Poor chicken got killed in vain.
4- Forced by groom to dance on item song, bride calls-off wedding
After being repeatedly forced to dance on an item song, this bride from Firozabad threw away her garland in disgust and walked away from the stage at her wedding. She is not an item girl dude.
3- Groom fails to bow, bride walks off
Like in many Hindu weddings, friends of this unfortunate groom playfully lifted him way too high during the garland exchange ceremony. The bride made three attempts to garland him, failing which she walked off the stage and refused to get married to him. Never go too high.
2- Fair, beautiful, tall bride needed… (Or not)
Two Agra-based sisters called off their wedding at the last hour because their grooms looked apparently darker and older than they did in their pictures. These women saw their grooms for the first time on the wedding day. Well, photoshop spoiled it for the men this time.
1- Can you add? No? Cancel the wedding!
21-year-old, class 12-pass, on finding out about her would-be being illiterate, asked him what 15 added to six was. After much thinking, the man (23-year-old) answered, ‘Seventeen’. The wrong answer made the girl call off the wedding.
