indian wedding

An Indi­a­n­is a com­bi­na­tion of ori­en­tal col­or, as well as a unique, spe­cial lux­u­ry of dec­o­ra­tion. More­over, such small details of the the­mat­ic cel­e­bra­tion as: mehn­di, walk­ing around the fire, bin­di, sari, charm­ing with its fem­i­nin­i­ty, the process of apply­ing sin­door, bright flow­ers dec­o­rat­ing the bride’s hair, will help to make thenot only unfor­get­table, but also fash­ion­able.

Indi­an style- basic ideas
  1. Loca­tion. Choose a room dec­o­rat­ed in an ori­en­tal style (var­i­ous forms of pil­lows, low sofas, bright car­pets). If you have cho­sen to hold acel­e­bra­tion with­in the walls of your own home, do not for­get such an impor­tant nuance: accord­ing to Indi­an tra­di­tions, all those present at the­do not sit on chairs, but on pil­lows, while a table­cloth spread on the floor serves as a table.
  2. Indi­an style­dress and suit. On this impor­tant day for her, the bride puts on a red sari, dec­o­rat­ed with numer­ous pat­terns, beads, and fringes. For its tai­lor­ing, use chif­fon, cot­ton or silk. Do not for­get that white is con­sid­ered a mourn­ing col­or in India, so avoid it, both in out­fits and in inte­ri­or design. As for the veil, it will serve as a pat­terned long cape, the col­or scheme of which match­es the col­or of the dress. Dec­o­rate your hands with bracelets. Don’t for­get rings and ear­rings. Legs and hands can be paint­ed with hen­na. It is believed that the more com­plex such paint­ing (mehen­di), the high­er the sta­tus of the future wife. The groom’s suit is dec­o­rat­ed with embroi­dery, braid, and a tur­ban on his head. True, in mod­ern India, some men pre­fer a reg­u­lar tuxe­do. On their feet, the cou­ple wears either spe­cial san­dals, or go with­out shoes.
  3. Bou­quet. In this case, it is nec­es­sary to choose only red flow­ers (orchids, ros­es, car­na­tions).
  4. Indi­an­script. At the moment when the groom arrives for his beloved, the invit­ed guests greet him with a scat­ter­ing of coins, hang­ing a gar­land of ban­knotes around his neck. In the ban­quet hall, the new­ly­weds per­form their first dance as hus­band and wife. Dur­ing the feast, a rit­u­al should be per­formed to deter­mine the head of the fam­i­ly. So, for this, the rel­a­tives of the spouse should ban­dage the wrists of the lovers with a red thread, tight­ly tying its ends. The one who is the first of the new­ly­weds to untie it will be the leader in the fam­i­ly.
  5. invi­ta­tions. Use flo­ral orna­ments, satin paper. Don’t for­get that navy blues, reds and greens are all wel­come in an Indi­an wed­ding.
  6. Hall dec­o­ra­tion. Dec­o­rate the room with lots of flow­ers, fab­rics. Weave flower gar­lands, cre­ate flo­ral arrange­ments. The more bright col­ors in the dec­o­ra­tion of the hall, the bet­ter.
  7. Menu. Veg­eta­bles, meat dish­es, rice are the main com­po­nents of the fes­tive menu. The main thing is that every­thing should be with spices. For desserts, choose sher­bet, hal­va, rag­ull, pineap­ple and banana wedges with whipped cream, and mithai.
