Wedding Rituals and Ceremonies
Here are some of the most important Indian wedding rituals and ceremonies and the key differences between an Indian wedding and a Western wedding.
Who is invited?
Indian weddings are usually larger than Western weddings with more guests as Indian families tend to be larger. The guest list will include close family and the extended family. Close family members are usually fully involved in the arrangements unlike Western weddings where this is usually just confined to the bride and groom and their parents.
What to wear at an Indian wedding
As a guest at an Indian wedding, it is acceptable to immerse yourself in Indian culture and wear traditional Indian dress if you feel comfortable. If you stick with Western attire then the most important thing to remember is that it should be colourful.
What is the signifance of a Hindu wedding?
In the modern world, marriage is about choice and contract. The couple choose one another and enter into a contract of marriage recognised by law as well as a spiritual union. The Hindu wedding is about neither of these traditionally, as a Hindu wedding customarily is an arranged marriage between families and a matter of duty for the man and the woman.
