Holi is just round the corner, newlyweds worried, confused or still figuring out? T here is something about being together, and you cannot deny it. There is so many emotions, bonding and values attached to these traditional moments. These festivals or occasions never go out of fashion. For our new brides First festivals that come after your wedding not only call for revelry, but have a special ring to them as well. Your new family expects you to look and behave your best when they celebrate these festivals with you for the very first time. The wisest approach to celebrate festivals after marriage, is to do so in a manner that helps you bond better with your husband, your new family and friends.
Have Fun, Make it Happen
Try to gauge the mood of your husband and in-laws. If it seems they are not so enthusiastic about the festival, find out the reason. If some tragic incident is the cause, you too need to curb your enthusiasm. If not, then you should try to spread that festive feel in the house. If you live in a nuclear family, do make your in-laws a part of your celebrations. This will help you bond with them, and get in their good books as well.
Holi celebrations are bound to get a bit out of hand. This might not be the best day to spend time on looking your best. However, you cannot get away with a ‘plain Jane’ look in just whites, as you are a newlywed. So, your outfit should come across as joyful, even if it means sacrificing a favourite dress. If you are up for the challenge, wear something new. Whatever might be your decision, think of it as an investment towards creating memories that will last forever.
Host The Holi Event Perfectly
Make it an amazing get together for friends and family. There are plenty of Bollywood songs that are a must-play at Holi parties. Be it Rang Barsey, Balam Pichkari, Bhangra mixes or other Holi favourites, just make sure that the house DJ knows which tracks to play to get the mood right. Based on everyone’s personal comfort level, get them involved in the celebrations and the masti! If someone is not comfortable with colours or with dancing, make sure you respect their preferences.
Go Easy On Drinks
Holi parties can also be a good excuse to get a bit tipsy. However, being your first Holi celebration, you must be a little careful. There is every chance of friends suggesting you to taste their version of bhaang. Go ahead and indulge yourself, but not to the extent of passing out! Also, make sure that your husband is always involved or knows what you are doing.
Spice Up Your Relationship
So, the Holi celebrations have ended and everybody has headed back home. Rather than simply ambling to your room and falling asleep, surprise your husband. Yes, the idea might already have been in his head, but you initiating it could be a major turn-on for him. Didn’t get us? Well, just suggest to him that you have been splashed with Holi colours and need his help to wash them off. This is probably the best way to end the day’s celebrations, isn’t it?
In your first Holi celebration, you are likely to be the focus of all attention. However, do not let this deter you from having a good time. Do not hesitate to dance or get a little flirty with your husband. A Holi celebration is bound to have music and dancing. Ensure that you have your husband to accompany you as you sway to the music
