hai everyone..


Modern Indian Weddings as they are

Traditions change as time flies, and even such a great culture as India lives through some impressive know-hows. Of course, elderly people would not agree, saying that traditional weddings are the best and today eastern European brides’ dresses are a disgrace for their generation. But is it so?

Indian wedding is not only the connection of two young people, but also the beginning of a new life. By tradition, wedding is preceded by creating a horoscope of a man and a woman in order for their characters to match together, so that the family life flows without controversy or quarrels. Indian weddings have always been famous for their luxury and wealth. According to the existing tradition, the parents of the bride organize the wedding. Celebrating and holding all the necessary rituals last four to five days, but preparation for the wedding begins long before the wedding ceremony.

Some things never change

Hindu marriage is always divided into three stages: pre-wedding ceremonies, wedding rites, and rituals after the wedding. The meals served during this period consist exclusively of dairy-vegetarian dishes. The consumption of meat, fish and eggs is prohibited. The rituals of North Indian weddings are somewhat different from those held in southern India.

India is a country of people belonging to different religions, castes and communities, people speaking different languages and belonging to different cultures. This variety is reflected in the wedding ceremonies.

Bride’s business

Usually, organization and payment of the wedding lays entirely on the bride's family’s shoulders. If the bride does not have enough money, then weddings are cancelled, there are plenty of cases when this happens. It is important that the bride can feed the entire clan of the groom, the relatives like second cousins and grandchildren also appear at the event. Still, Indians like to show their wealth, so families still invite all sorts of neighbors and other people, for example, bystanders and foreigners.


Painfully expensive

In addition to the fact that the bride's family needs to pay the entire wedding (the average price of relatively wealthy families pours out somewhere at a cost of 15-20 thousand dollars), they still have a dowry, which a bride should have unconditionally. Although a dowry was legislatively banned several years ago, but still, traditions have impeccable value for Indian people, so that no modern laws will force to break old customs.

What are the requirements?

The bride must be provided with everything - dresses, jewelry, make-up supplies, other necessary things. Plus, the bride's father must also organize the whole life of the newlyweds - from pots and pans to a motorcycle or car.

Even though some requirements might be forgotten for the sake of economy and modernity, Indians stay the very nation to follow old traditions and customs, which is amazing! Although wedding suits, dresses or accessories may vary, but the very core never changes: Indians still want to see their favorite and sacred family at the wedding ceremony, there is no thing as running away and spending time with closes friends. It is not a good tradition, nor a good tone either. Brides still wear read and bangles for good luck, grooms still arrive in an Indian manner, even though we can see a white limousine instead of a white mare.


Indians respect other heritages, so you can often see the mixture of a Hindu and Christian wedding, which is a whole lot of experience. You still get to enjoy the most exquisite and tasty dishes, supplied in great amounts, dance to cheerful music and enjoy life. Isn’t it what happiness is about?

  29. I've been to an Indian wedding before. It was held in London where my Indian friend got married to an English man. It was superb! His family was all about "getting into the tradition" so the setting, clothes and to the last detail are more Indian that India. I was very happy to see someone who's not of that ethnicity but make the effort to get involved and to make the culture alive.
