Indian customs for weddings

Every bride and groom aspires to have the most memorable moment of their lives at their marriage There are many different things you can do to make your big day special and personal for you, but there are a few traditional components that must be present in order for an Indian wedding to get truly authentic.

The groom is escorted down the aisle during the Baraat, or entry of the man, on either the arms of his friends or by a light animal. He is dressed in a stunning headdress with an beautiful Kalgi brooch and an intricate sherwani suit. The guys typically carry a basket of stretched grain to supply to the holy fire as they go, and he is accompanied by his community.

The wife is welcomed by her couple’s home upon arrival and led to the Mandap, or ceremonial building, where she will be waiting for her future father. A mangalsutra, which is essentially a golden necklace with ebony pearls, is placed around the bride’s neck as the couple trades Milni Malas, or flower wreaths. Additionally, he recites Hindu mantras that call upon Soma, Gandharva, and Agni to bestow his new partner with youngsters, strength, beauty.

The final act of the meeting, known as kanya primo, or the bride’s gift-giving, is a very changing event. The wedding accepts her position as the brain of her household by dipping her feet in a milk and purple mixture while the groom’s family holds her close and presents him with gifts of clothing and jewelry. She next calls upon Lakshmi, the goddess of love, beauty, and wealth, leaving dark footsteps on the ground.
