Hindu Wedding

Hindu WeddingHindu weddings are one of the most important ceremonies. The script is enchanted in Sanskrit, which is the language that is used in most of the holy ceremonies. Hindu weddings also follow a lot of rituals and customs. Here wedding traditions include many rites and rituals performed on the D-day. Hindu weddings are considered as holy ceremonies and the rituals are carried out in an extremely traditional way. The rituals have changed over the years but the basics are the same.

In traditional Hindu weddings, the main ceremony takes place at the brides' home. There are many pre-wedding and post-wedding ceremonies. The most important of the former is the Mangni or Sagai or engagement ceremony. On the auspicious day of the wedding, the bride's father treats the groom to yogurt and honey and graciously welcomes him into the household. One of the most important of Indian Hindu wedding traditions is the exchanging of garlands, commonly referred to as the Jaimala ceremony and is symbolic of accepting one another.

The ceremonial fire or Havan is lit and Agni is invoked to witness the occasion. Fire is regarded as a purifying element in Hindu rites and rituals. The couple then offers sacrifice or Rajaham to the fire. The ritual that follows next is the Gath Bandhan, symbolic of eternal ties. Then it is the turn of what is regarded as the most important all Hindu wedding traditions - the Saat Phere or Mangal Phere. The bride and groom circle the fire often holding hands and take vows to be beside each other throughout their lives. Both sets of parents and other elders of the family then bless the newly wedded couple.

Indian Hindu wedding traditions also include putting on the Mangal Sutra as well and application of vermillion on the bride's head by the groom. These rituals have a deeper symbolic relevance and a certain quaint charm and appeal. There are many exotic wedding venues in India and a splendid wedding in any of them is sure to remain embedded in your memories forever.
