A Closer Look at a Bridal Traditions in Asia

Celebrations are by character a fusion of two households and their nations. With that in mind, some Eastern faiths have several cultures and festivals surrounding the ceremony weekends. Some may be common with the Mehndi Ceremony, but what about the Milni Service? This take a closer look at some of the most favorite ceremony custom in india.

The Mehndi ( or Henna ) ceremony is a pre- wedding festival where the bride and her female family members and friends get their hands decorated with intricate henna designs. This is not only a joyful celebration but it also symbolizes the strength of the tie between the wedding and her future hubby.

On the day of the ceremony, the wedding is often escorted to her couple’s apartment by her paternal uncle and is welcomed by the adult members of the couple’s home with red boxes of money( many like we might discover a “celebrity” render a royal doorway at their wedding). The groom makes his way to the mandap where he sits alongside the bride and takes seven steps, which are similar to saying their vows in a western wedding.

The tying of the knot is typically followed by the Saptapadi, where the couple promises themselves and each other that they will honor their parents, live in harmony and treat each other with respect. Then the newly married couple will leave for their honeymoon! Traditionally, the groom would escort his bride back to her parents on the third day after the wedding and honor them by paying respects to their elders. This was to thank them for raising her sri lankan women and to show their appreciation and respect for her.
