[[AC:LiveActionTV]] * Kala in ''Series/{{Sense8}}'' goes through one of the "marrying a man she does not love" variety in the fifth episode. Before she can say the binding vows, a [[MaleFrontalNudity fully naked]] Wolfgang appears in front of her (while he's invisible to everyone else). She ends up fainting and the wedding gets postponed.

Are you [[ArrangedMarriage marrying someone you do not love]]? Did your whole family just die? Is the best man planning to kill himself at the reception? And perhaps more importantly: is someone singing about it? If the answer's yes, congratulations on your Sad {{Bollywood}} Wedding!

TruthInTelevision. Even without the Bollywood or some sort of lost love undertone, some traditional Indian marriage ceremonies are based on the idea that the bride leaves her family forever to live with her husband and his family (who're supposed to be [[ArrangedMarriage total strangers to her]]). This often involves a lot of crying and even ''mourning'' on the part of the bride and her family. And in the old days, it ''was'' like this! People would come from another village, and it wasn't like mom and dad had a car to go visit the daughter. If you were poor, you might see your daughter when she has kids and that's it. in some more traditional families, the bride's parents won't even eat or drink water from the daughter's new home.

* {{Invoked}} in ''Film/BendItLikeBeckham'' when the cameraman at Pinky's wedding chides her for looking too happy. Her marriage to Teetu is a love match and was nearly blocked by a ParentalMarriageVeto. ** TruthInTelevision--even without the Bollywood or some sort of lost love undertone, some traditional Indian marriage ceremonies are based on the idea that the bride leaves her family forever to live with her husband and his family (who're supposed to be [[ArrangedMarriage total strangers to her]]).

[[AC:{{Literature}}]] * Referenced in ''Life Isn't All Ha Ha Hee Hee'' by Meera Syal. Chila, who marries at the beginning of the novel, wonders whether she should have got a friend to slap her or tell a tragic story just before the ceremony so she would look miserable (as she's known other women to do.) It's stated this is very important because the video will be circulated to all the bride's relatives worldwide, who may never meet her but will judge her by the film and take a very negative view of smiling.
