Indian Bride Customs

Indian ceremonies involve a lot of entertaining, touching, and substantial rites. Kanyadana, the bride’s father handing her over to the groom in a symbolic way, conveys that the bride is now his role. He raises her palm and teaches her the art of walking through existence collectively, facing its joys and sorrows, happiness and adversity with conviction and power.

Another important occasion is Laja Homam, in which the bride and her husband’s family and friends throw puffed rice ( also known as ahutis ) into the sacred fire. According to legend, the wedding will purge the wedding of all bad energy and make her for a fulfilling marriage. The bride is also smeared with yellow as a form of purifying, and five Veda mantras are recited as part of the method.

The Anjara follows, in which the bride’s families grant the married couple is grace. The groom finally presents the wife with her Ram Sutra, saying that he accepts her as a significant member of his family.

The Vidai festival occurs when the wedding bids goodnight to her relatives and makes her way to her fresh house with her husband. Her aunts gently taunt her by preventing her from entering the couple’s home and inviting her. Therefore, in order to break through their siege, he must grant them presents. A fun-filled, light-hearted convention! Juta Churai frequently follows this custom, in which the couple’s sister-in-law tries to steal his sneakers and demand payment for them.
