Any Punjabi girl reading this blog might get a mischievous smile on her lips. Doesn’t she know of the Hindu tradition where the bridegroom’s shoes are stolen at the shaadi mandap by the friends of the would-be bride? Such kind of ‘chori’ is permissible, don’t you think.
What about bridal shoes? They aren’t meant to be stolen, sweetie, but kept in an exclusive and happening shoe wardrobe. Ya ya…just as a bride has the right to buy extravagant lehengas, sarees and jewelry for her wedding, she also has to shop for wedding shoes in order to complete her wedding trousseau.
Talk of the level to which shoe shopping must be done for the bride, and I would say that there should be a shoe pair in every colour and every style. After all, she is not going to walk bare foot in her sangeet, mehendi, marriage, and reception do’s.
