So, don’t forget about the classics, and so treat your guests of the older generations with an unforgettable evening!
We have some tips for you that can help you complete every ceremony (from Mehndi to Mangalsutra) with hits to enjoy with your friends and family.
How many peoples, so many different traditions. Henna or Mehendi ceremony takes place in India the day before the wedding, where the bride chooses patterns to draw on her hands and feet.
The ceremony is as important as the wedding itself, as a festive dinner is organized and guests dance and sing in honor of the newlyweds. However, it is not eaten at the same table and everyone is served when they are hungry and when it suits them, without paying attention to others.
If you find yourself a guest at such a gathering and you are not sure what you could sing – we have a proposal. You can never go wrong with a Mardal song from the famous Indian film Devdas sung by Madhuri Diksit in a squeaky voice.
The wedding day itself depends most on the position of the stars. In India, the horoscope is viewed very seriously and weddings are held on an auspicious day determined by the position of the stars. Of course, it is also calculated whether the natal birth charts are compatible.
The mehndi ceremony is followed by a wedding. All are invited to wear saris. Newlyweds can be dressed, for example, in a red costume with gold sequins, ornamented with flowers.
The Indian wedding is reminiscent of a theater play and has very interesting choreography. The bride tries to hang the groom around the neck with a necklace of jasmine and roses, and he needs to defend himself, which is wholeheartedly assisted by a family who does not want to lose him.
An interesting part of the ceremony is the preparation of the campfire. A priest arrives who has pre-prepared sandalwood, butter, rice flakes and other ingredients needed for a good married life, and then the newlyweds throw it all together in a fire.
The groom promises to bring all the money to his wife, and she promises to manage his property well and prays not to go to the world before him. Then the newlyweds cycle around the fire seven times, with their eyes down, with the bride walking in front of the groom and leading him tied behind him, and then he leads her.
Some of the immediate family binds them to one another with the help of a long veil they wear with traditional costumes. In the end, each nun puts the newlyweds in their mouths a kind of Alva, for good luck, and then blesses them with their hands on their heads.
As you might have noticed in the history of Indian wedding dancing is a must! If you are a groom, get ready in time and find out what hits you can make your dance fantastic.
