Indian ceremony customs

Every bride and groom aspires to have the most memorable moment of their life at their wedding. 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 marriage to become really authentic.

The bridegroom is escorted down the aisle during the Baraat, or doorway of the bridegroom, on either the shoulders of his buddies or by a pale horse. He is dressed in a beautiful headdress with an elegant Kalgi brooch and an subtle sherwani suit. The groomsmen typically carry a basket of stretched corn to feed to the holy fire as they go, and he is accompanied by his home.

The wedding is welcomed by her groom’s home upon entering and led to the Mandap, or ceremonial building, where she will wait for her future husband. A mangalsutra, which is essentially a gold jewellery with ebony pearls, is placed around the bride’s chest as the few exchange Milni Malas, or plant garlands. Additionally, he recites Vedic mantras that call upon Soma, Gandharva, and Agni to bestow his new wife with youth, attractiveness.

The final act of the service, known as kanya primo, or the bride’s gift-giving, is a very passing event. The wife dips her feet in a butter and vermilion concoction to symbolize accepting her position as the nose of her family while the couple’s family holds her close and showers him with gifts of clothing and jewelry. She next calls out to Lakshmi, the goddess of love, charm, and riches, leaving dark footsteps on the ground.
