The Indian Wedding Ceremony

Wedding ceremonies held in the Indian culture are a grand affair that last a duration of 4 to 5 days. There are pre-wedding functions, the main event, and post weddings function too.

Pre-wedding festivities comprise of lots of food, dance and basic preparations done to prepare both the bride and groom for their big day ahead. This includes the Haldi, Sangeet and Mehndi ceremonies.

The main wedding function is where the bride and groom perform a series of rituals where they are blessed spiritually to become bonded in the sacred pact of marriage. The bride and groom take seven rounds around fire as a means of symbolizing their togetherness forever, alongside a number of mantras being cited by the priest.
