They are not only a celebration of love but also an opportunity for the bride and groom to party and create memories that will last a lifetime.

The Holy Date

The date of the wedding is often determined by a High Priest, who uses the Lunar Calendar and astrology to determine the most auspicious date. This is a crucial step in the wedding preparations, as it sets the tone for a prosperous and harmonious marriage.

The Wedding Area

The decorations at an Indian wedding are a reflection of the couple's culture and heritage. The focus of attention of the wedding arena is the Mandap, a magnificent structure where the couple ties the knot. The Mandap is usually adorned with elegant decorations and colourful fabrics, and it serves as the backdrop for the wedding ceremony. The wedding ceremony is conducted by a priest and involves sacred rituals, including the Havan, a fire ritual.

Wedding Rituals

The Baraat is the first of many ceremonies, where the groom arrives accompanied by his family, groomsmen, and friends. The groom is welcomed by the bride's family and the wedding festivities begin. The wedding ceremony includes several other rituals, including the Ganesh Puja, Vaarpooja, Kanya Aagman, Varmala, Kanyadan, Mangal Fera, Saptapadi, and Mangal Sutra. The Aashirwad, a blessing from both sets of parents and the Vidaai is a farewell ceremony organized by the bride's family.
