Ah weddings, the place for dances, drinks, and a celebration of love: and also space for some unintentionally rude and uncomfortable comments. Unfortunately, the South Asian culture is also known for some of the typical comments – often related to marriage, age, kids & the list goes on. It’s often unintentional, and after a point it’s easy to find it comical.
We’ve all been there, you’ve been asked something uncomfortable, and then you kind of just shrug it off, give a little giggle, and turn the other way. Most of the time, the people making the comments really don’t think twice before making them, so it’s best not to take it too seriously and laugh about it (or kill ‘em with kindness).
Honestly sometimes, it’s better to say something, rather than change the conversation. If you don’t pick them up on it there and then, they may just keep making the comments everytime you meet – and this will be even more frustrating.
We’ve compiled a short list of some of the rudest comments that get made, and how you can cheekily respond back to some of them.
1 – The Countdown
“1 down, 3 to go”
“2nd wedding of too many”
“Only 2 weddings left!”
Whilst these are often harmless Instagram captions that get used nowadays, they can be slightly offensive. Think about it, with a wedding being the most special day for someone, you don’t want to make it seem like a chore!
More often than not, they’ve spent a lot of time on this big day. They may not even get offended, but how about another caption, maybe about them, instead?

2 – Get The Story Straight
“So, when did these two actually meet? You must know”
“You’ve known about this for years, right?”
“I knew all along, he/she kept this a secret”
Sometimes, it’s still the case where you’ll have some very nosey aunties and uncles, who just want to know all the nitty gritty details of the couples relationship. It can get pretty awkward for you to start spilling the beans.
Here are our best ways to dodge it:
“You’re more of a detective than I am, I’ll hire you next time I need some info!”
“How did you know?! MI5 should hire you!”
“I only found out when I saw the invite, can’t believe they hid it!”
3 – You’re Next
“*nudge*, you’re next!”
“It should be you up there soon, right?”
“Aren’t you the same age, when are you getting married?”
Here’s the one you’ve been waiting for, they’re just plain ignorant. Unfortunately, this comment is made by those who are more distant to you, and likely, they’re probably only looking for a way to start conversation.
Check out some of our suggested, sarcastic and respectful, ways to respond:
“Your bet’s as good as mine!”
“It’ll happen when it’ll happen – and trust me, you’ll be the first to know”
“I’ve got time, don’t you worry”
Hope these help you out, you’re likely gonna need it.
