Did the Princy Harry and Meghan Markle wedding make you feel nostalgic? Well, you can always close your eyes and relive your own happiest moment!

Mmmmmm So this is love,
So this is love
So this is what makes life divine
I’m all aglow, Mmmmmm
And now I know
The key to all heaven is mine
My heart has wings, Mmmmmm
And I can fly
I’ll touch ev’ry star in the sky
So this is the miracle that I’ve been dreaming of
So this is love
– Cindrella

I have been humming this song since yesterday. So many weddings this year, or to be precise since last December, have made me all mushy. Virat and Anushka, Sonam and Anand and the icing on the cake was the wedding of Harry and Megan.

Once in a while, in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale – Unknown Author

Most women, working, stay at home, married, unmarried, young, middle aged, whatever be the status, would have been affected in one way or the other after they saw these weddings because you cannot avoid watching them, the videos are everywhere.

Everything about these weddings was so beautiful. The trousseau, the place, the décor everything was so exquisite. The pre wedding ceremonies and the post wedding parties were all so well planned.

Nowadays most weddings are planned very meticulously. The photographers/videographers capture all the rituals beautifully in all angles, sometimes I wonder whether that was also planned.
When you have been married for quite sometime and you are busy with everything else in life , these weddings make you pause and believe in fairy tales. Some of you might have gone back to your wedding day. Some of you might have thought that how different it was in your times. Some of you may regret certain things which you did or didn’t do. Some of you must be thinking how nice it would be if you could get married again.

There is one thing we can all do , we can just hold our partners hand and say the vows again. We may not have the decor , the dress, the audience but we have each other. Close your eyes and just relive the most happiest moment of your life and you would exactly feel like how Cinderella felt when she found her prince!
