Indian wedding cultures and its traditions

An Indian wedding is more than simply a ceremony; it's also a lavish event as well as a beautiful union of two souls. The wedding is a celebration of an everlasting tie and the coming together of two families.

People from all around the world have been drawn to Indian weddings because they are so colourful. Indian weddings are known for their grandiose features, such as multi-page invitations, a huge number of guests, and a costly feast.

Every ceremony in an Indian wedding represents something different, and each rite has its own meaning. Even in the Saat Pheras, each circle represents a pledge that the bride and groom will take. Indian weddings often last until 3 a.m. because the rituals are so intricate.

Indian weddings are so energetic, emotion-ridden spectacle, whether it's the dancing at the Sangeet or Baraat, the breathtakingly beautiful Mandap, lavish attires, the excitement around Juta Chupaai, the intimate Mangal Pheras, or the passionate Vidaai.

Besides the wedding day ceremonies, the Indian wedding includes numerous other rites that take place over several days prior to the wedding.

The following is a list of some of the Indian wedding's cultures and traditions:

The Muhurata - The date and timing of the wedding are extremely important in Indian marriages. Indians pre-determine a time and date for any event, which is usually determined by an astrologer. The couple's date of birth is used to choose an auspicious time for the Indian wedding, known as a Muhurata.

Roka ceremony - Roka is the first official event of an Indian wedding. It serves as a precursor to marriage. In the Roka ritual, both families join together to bless the pair and show their acceptance and consent for their union. Families give gifts and sweets, and they spend time together getting to know one another better.

Pre-wedding photo shoot - Now, people say an Indian wedding is a full-fledged extravaganza for a reason: the bride and groom are no less than the hero and heroine of a Bollywood film, as seen by the pre-wedding photoshoot. This practice has grown so popular in recent years that photographers and venues are frequently booked months in advance.
