Embracing Tradition: The Splendor of Indian Weddings

Indian marriages are colorful, large ceremonies that are a combination of ancient customs and modern practices and can only be described as splendid. Being lengthy events, Indian weddings are known for their grandeur, customs, and symbolism that the parties and traditions hold. The general celebrations usually start with any number of pre-wedding rites and ceremonies including engagement, where families interchanged tokens and blessings. This is succeeded by the sangeet, an entertaining night of music and dancing in which families and friends of the bride and groom come to party in anticipation of the couple’s marriage.
