Customs of Indian weddings

Indian ceremonies involve a lot of entertaining, touching, and significant rites. Kanyadana, the bride’s parents handing the wedding over to the wedding in a symbolic way, symbolizes that the bride is now his accountability. He lifts her hand and teaches her the art of walking through life up, facing its joys and sorrows, enjoyment and hardship with conviction and stamina.

Another significant occasion is Laja Homam, in which the bride and her husband’s family and friends also throw puffed rice ( also known as ahutis ) into the sacred fire. According to legend, the ceremony will purge the bride of all negative emotions and create her for a fulfilling marriage. The bride is also smeared with spice as a form of cleansing, and five Veda mantras are recited as part of the process.

The Anjara follows, where the princess’s kids give the wedded pair their blessing. The groom next presents the bride with her Mangal Sutra, saying that he accepts her as a crucial member of his family.

Suddenly, the Vidai festival occurs when the wife requests farewell to her parents and makes her way to her new apartment with her husband. Her daughters playfully tickle her by preventing her from entering the couple’s home and inviting her. Next, in order to bust through their blockade, he has to give them presents. A joyful, enjoyable traditions! Juta Churai frequently performs this tradition, where the couple’s sister-in-law tries to steal his sneakers and demand payment for them.
