Youngsters celebrate birthdays or it is celebrated often by their close friends. Couples celebrate each other's birthdays without fail and then comes the 60th Birthday also called the Sashtipoorthi in Southern part of India.

These days with the advent of Social Media, we cannot make an excuse to forget anyone's Birthday. Also the pictures of one's birthday is one update that everyone watches out for. Birthdays are being so well organized that its becoming just like another big occasion as a wedding in one's life. 

But when you get an invite to be a part of it for an event happening in another city, your boss might not be as convinced as you to let you go out on a leave on an occasion as a Birthday. So live streaming of birthdays also has caught up the trend.

Live Streaming Birthdays:

First Birthday Live Streaming

Recently we watched our boss's daughter's first birthday live streamed on our intranet site as well as on the internet. What a celebration it was. There are service providers like SeeMyMarriage.com, not limited to live marriage streaming but also Birthday Live Streaming, from anywhere in India.

60th Birthday Live Streaming

80th Birthday Live Streaming

Having someone to be with you on their 80th Birthday is a real blessing to all those who are younger. On May 5th, 2012 Ms.Neelambari celebrated her 80th birthday at Sundeep Hall, Chennai. If you observe the below uploaded video, one can validate the need for broadcasting such an event. Live Streaming of this event created a virtual presence to the birthday miss outs.

Starting from the arrangement of pooja, arriving of kith and kin, birthday rituals followed by nearly 10 priests, extended pooja, distribution of gifts etc.,were covered in a very crystalline form. At the end of the pooja, the God blessed birthday lady, Ms.Neelambari was showered with the holy water by all her dear ones.
The same live streamed video was post produced and a short video of the highlights of the event has been created.

When you are live streaming a birthday, having a birthday invitation video created is one good idea as you can post it in social media showcasing all the important photos until that particular birthday. Also it will serve as a reminder, to those who are planning to be there physically and for those planning to be present virtually, through the live webcast.

Post the Birthday, one will be very curious to  see how the entire day went on. How did the guests react to the games planned, who wore the most important outfit if there was a dress code and so on and so forth.
So designing your highlights video also is very important as you need to make sure the actual highlights on your mind are reflected in the short birthday video highlights.

How different is a Love Marriage from an Arranged One

Love Vs Arranged Marriages - Difference in behavioral Patterns

Love Marriage or an Arranged one? Many ask this question either to the one's who are planning to get married or it can be a self query. In India, nearly 92% of the population go with Arranged Marriages or Love cum Arranged marriages. On the other hand only 8% go for Love marriages.

Whether its a love or an arranged marriage, one should believe that "Marriages are made in Heaven". The key words for any happy marital life are Love, Respect, Understanding, Trust, Acquaintance etc. The divorce rate got declined to 1.1% in India. This is all because of the average Indian's mental strength to accept what comes in their way with a complete positive attitude. So one must come out of the stereotype feeling that arranged marriages live long and love marriages breakup early. It all depends on the couple's perceptions, thinking ability and understanding between the families  for a long lasting marital life.

When you enter a wedding venue, you can sometimes make out whether the wedding is an arranged one or a love marriage. Lets get into some fun aspects of the same.

Arranged Marriage
Love Marriage
Couple's Intimacy

In Arranged marriages, families get more closer than the mates. From the shy feelings and restricted movements of the bride and groom, one can make out a to be an arranged marriage.

Here in Love marriages, the couples feel free to communicate with each other. Smiles flying all the time, perfect chemistry is carried on, all along the wedding.
Families Rapport

As the wedding is fixed by the family members of the bride and the groom, they get more acquainted with each other. There will be a number of situations for the families to come together before the wedding like Haldi Rasam, Mehndi, Sangeet etc. These get together s result in more closeness for the families on the day of wedding.

The families of the bride and the groom show some reservedness if they completely don't approve of the wedding. So not much rapport is displayed between them on the dais of the wedding. The entire event is mostly handled by the couple themselves.
Guests Count
The venues generally get packed up with guests if it's an arranged marriage. The ratio of families dominate the ratio of friends and colleagues.
In love marriages we find the number of friends or colleagues are high compared to the numbers of families attended or they may be equal in ratio. Orthodox families will most probably miss out these marriages. What so ever the reason, the guest count is generally low at love marriages.

Receiving Guests
The guests are received with utmost care, especially the ones from groom's side. The Groom's family also receive the Bride's guests warmly.
The Bride's family do not feel much obligation to receive guests from the groom side due to the slight resistance. Guests are mostly friends and colleagues who are not received heartily by the families. On the other hand, the couple try their best to win the hearts of the guests by wishing them warmly.

Social Status

In arranged marriages almost typically an equal financial status match is fixed to prevent further hitches. A rich family opts for either same status or above. There will be a similar trend with the middle class families.

In love marriages both the families may or may not be of same financial status. If there is a difference, then the guests can easily make out on the day of the wedding looking at the Costumes, Jewellery and very rarely, dignity.
Friends of the Couple

Friends of the Bride and Groom, are not usually acquainted with each other. It takes time for them to start interacting with each other during the wedding rituals.

Friends of the Bride and Groom show intimacy and move close together.
Confusion Vs Confidence

The couple when observed on the wedding Dias, a state of confusion reflects on their faces.

These love birds look very confident on their Big Day. Love is in the air and all over the place 
Pride Vs Embarrassment

The families of either the bride or the groom when noticed, have a proud feeling on their faces and behavior. They are gratified about their children for accepting the proposal settled by the elders. Its a Big day for the parents as well.

The close family members of the couple have an embarrassment filled all along their behavior if the marriage is not completely approved by both the families. On the other hand there are parents these days who are approve whole heartedly.
Communication of Arrangements
The arrangements in an arranged marriage are usually not that transparent and organized. There will be multiple videographers, photographers etc. causing more expenditure both sides.
With the continuous communication between the couple, things will be more organized and communicated much before hand. There will be more transparency for both sides on the arrangements that are being made.

Live Marriage Streaming is a trend these days with Couples whose marriage has been arranged in their home country in their absence.
Live Marriage Streaming is definitely organized since the couples most definitely have common friends in the home country or abroad.

All the above mentioned points may not always be true and these have been drawn through some public opinions and observations. In this modern culture and society, people are trying to accept love marriages in the same way as arranged ones. Hope you enjoyed the differences and probably had these thoughts crossed your mind sometime or the other when you were on a wedding dais.

For any wedding to be a memorable event, one needs to accomplish stack of things like making a list of invitees, selecting and printing of invitation cards or mailing online E-Cards, shortlisting a caterer and the list goes on. Having a Wedding planner who would manage all these things is always the better idea but if you ask me, there will be also questions shooting up in my mind, will I miss the fun?
