Customs of Indian weddings

Indian celebrations feature a lot of entertaining, touching, and significant ceremonies. Kanyadana, the bride’s parents handing her over to the wedding in a symbolic way, conveys that the bride is now his role. He raises her finger and teaches her the art of walking through living together, facing its joys and sorrows, joy and hardship with conviction and strength.

Another important 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 service will purge the wedding of all negative emotions and create her for a fulfilling marriage. The bride is also smeared with turmeric as a form of cleansing, and five Veda mantras are recited as part of the operation.

The Anjara follows, in which the princess’s families give the newlywed partners their blessing. The bridegroom then presents the bride with her Ram Sutra, saying that he accepts her as a significant part of his household.

Suddenly, the Vidai service occurs when the bride requests farewell to her relatives and makes her way to her fresh home with her spouse. Her sisters lovingly taunt her by preventing her from entering the couple’s home and inviting her. Finally, in order to bust through their embargo, he must offer them presents. A fun-filled, lighthearted tradition! Juta Churai frequently follows this custom, in which the groom’s sister-in-law tries to steal his footwear and demand payment for them.
