How to welcome a bride in the familyHow do you welcome a newly wed girl in your family? She is not only the wedded bride of your family, she is a lot more than that. With this marriage, she becomes somebody's "Chachi" or "Maami" or daughter-in-law and so much more. So, basically a marriage brings a world of new associations in a girl's life. Most of the times a bride is so afraid, that she is not prepared for such a big change in her life all of a sudden. Here's how you can welcome a bride in your family:
1. The best way to welcome this new bride in the family is to introduce her and her family members to all of your family members on the week the wedding takes place. She will feel more at home this way.
2. The bride is afraid of committing mistakes. Let her make mistakes. Don't be judgmental. Always remember you were new to a family on your wedding day. Accept her mistakes as you would had accepted that of a newborn baby.
3. A bride feels herself like a newborn in your family. She knows nothing about your traditions and culture. Teach her, but slowly. Don't spoon feed her everything on the first day of wedding. Make her learn your culture gradually and organically.
4. Scold her when she goes the wrong way. But, do it as if she were your own daughter. Scold her as you would scold your own daughter on making a mistake.
I hope these pointers will help you make the relationship of your bride with your family the strongest one. I know this as I have myself experienced this during my marriage.
