9 Evergreen Traditions That Make An Indian Wedding The Most Beautiful Celebration In The World!

This article has been written by Namrata Arora for BollwoodShaadis.com

Indian weddings are colourful, bright, and loaded with traditions, they’re occasions of sheer joy. Each and every culture showcases its unique customs that are a delight to witness. Even just imagining a wedding without these beautiful traditions is quite a difficult thing, let alone actually not having these traditions be a part of them at all.

So, we thought of compiling a few Indian wedding traditions that should carry on for generations to come and without which, weddings will definitely not be as much fun as they are now.

#1. The Mehendi ceremony

It’s all about applying intricate henna designs on the hands and feet of the bride. Not only the bride, but all her friends and the ladies in the family get it applied on their hands. It is said that darker the colour of the mehendi, the more love and affection the bride will get from her hubby dearest and mother in-law. The venue is decorated with flowers and curtains. This function is one for which the bride and her friends eagerly wait as this is practically their last night together to have fun, dance, sing, and let their hair loose with each other. Also, there is something enchantingly serene about this night that makes it a memorable one.

#2. The Chooda ceremony

Can any Punjabi bride imagine her wedding to take place without having the chooda ceremony? We do not know what it is, but somehow, a marriage seems incomplete without those beautiful red and white ivory bangles. Many non-Punjabi  brides love wearing choodas as well. Seriously! And for her friends’ delight, it’s the kalire ceremony that follows and decides who gets married next!

#3. The Sehrabandi

The sehrabandi is the ritual in which the groom’s sister ties a sehra on his head after completing a specific puja. It is one of the most emotional moments between a brother, who is getting married and his sister. In North Indian weddings, it is one of the most sacred and followed pre-wedding traditions.

 

 

#4. The Joota Chupai

The jiju’s relationship with his saalas and saalis is incomplete without the joota chupai tradition where the bride’s siblings hide the groom’s shoes while he sits for the marriage ceremony. They then return the shoes in exchange for money. It is the best way for the two to bond and become closer amidst having some fun and also some serious bargaining!

 

#5. The Bidaai

This is one of the saddest yet happy and emotional event of the entire wedding, when the bride has to say her final goodbyes to her family and friends to go to her new house. Though it gets everyone teary-eyed, it’s one of the most cherished traditions amongst all

 

#6. The Kalash

wedddingsonline.jpg

When the bride enters her new house, she has to gently kick a small kalash full of rice with her right foot before she enters. This marks the beginning on her new life in her new house, and brings prosperity and good luck in the house. It is also synonymous with Goddess Lakshmi entering the house.

 

#7. Post-wedding games

These are major stress busters for the newly-married couple after a hectic and long day. The friends and family members of the groom arrange for post-wedding games that the newlyweds are supposed to play. Games range from opening multiple knots on the thread tied to each other’s wrists prior to the wedding, or searching for a ring in a thaali full of coloured water. It is a great way to break the ice and bond with each other for the bride and her new family.

 

 

#8. Tossing of the bouquet

lenaherveybaycelebrant.com

For a Christian bride, who does not have functions like the mehendi or the sangeet for her and her friends to connect, tossing of the bridal bouquet is one such moment where she gets to do that. It is special to her friends as it is believed that whoever catches it, gets married next!

 

#9. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

Something old represents continuity; something new offers optimism for the future; something borrowed symbolises borrowed happiness; and something blue stands for purity, love, and fidelity. This custom is for the Christian bride, and it symbolises wearing something on her wedding day that has been in her family from generations as it is considered to be lucky and auspicious.

The-Wedding-Script-decor-The-Wedding-Co.Trident-Sangeet-1024x683

‘What is the difference between an independent wedding planner and a on-site venue coordinator?’ is the question on every wedding couple’s mind. Lots of venues advertise hiring a planner on site, which seems to be more feasible, and hence several couples think they don’t really need to hire a planner.

The benefits of hiring a professional wedding planner (consultant) are immeasurable, we make a humble attempt to list down just 5 such benefits to help you make an informed decision.

Your money is important to you and us and we ensure you save…

Grooming for grooms

Science-of-Appearing.jpg

Want to look your best for your wedding, but keep hearing about Bridal packages at salons, and nothing for the groom? Look no further, because we have the checklist you’ve been searching for!

Simply put, while brides start cleansing-toning-moisturizing months before the wedding, certain regimens should be followed by the groom as well, to look your best dapper self on your wedding day. After all, you’ll also be the main subject of your wedding album, and no one likes a zoomed in pimple in your candid pic!

So we bring you a list of simple grooming tips to be followed by the groom to ensure you’re as radiant as your pretty bride on the D-Day.

Good skin starts with what you eat

49_DietSkin.jpg

Junk food, colas, fried fatty and full of masala dinners, all these impact your skin more than you’d realize. Eat a balanced diet for clean skin and lustrous hair. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water each day, and watch the impact on your skin within days! Follow this up with a simple cleanser and follow the C-T-M (Cleansing-toning-moisturizing) regime like your bible. If your skin is difficult, and often struck by acne, get a skin analysis done and invest in products meant specifically for your skin type. Using your body soap on your face just isn’t going to cut it!

Trim that hair!

mens-hair-trend-2015-best-men39s-haircut-for-spring-and-summer-2015-royal-pampering-HD-Wallpaper-Picture.jpg

We wouldn’t recommend a drastic new style right before the wedding. A trim five days before the big event is usually the safe way to go, to ensure no mishaps or weird looks on the day itself. If you really want to sport a different style, go in for a make-over hairstyle a month before, and in case you love the look get a trim from the same stylist a week before your wedding day.

Groom that beard

 

Whether you prefer a clean shave or a stubble or a full grown beard, make sure it’s properly done. A sudden clean shave after a long-term beard can leave a patchy face with sun tan spots. If it’s a stubble you want to sport, try things out in advance, experiment as to how many days’ stubble looks best on you, and shave and trim accordingly. And if you’re the ‘stache and beard’ kinda guy, make sure you use good grooming products (yes you get special products just to maintain your manly beard!), because nobody likes a shabby-bearded groom!

Indulge in a day at the salon

how_to_get_your_man_spruced_up_at_home.jpg

Who said long salon visits were meant only for brides? Check for special pre-wedding groom packages, else make your own!

Choose a facial to suit your skin type, and settle in for an hour of soft exfoliation and massage to get a glowing skin! In case you feel the need to indulge in any special masks, we suggest going with natural product brands, and even then ask the salon to do a patch test to ensure your skin doesn’t react to the ingredients. Best do this 4-5 days before the wedding, as no one wants a red splotchy face in case things go wrong!

Put the Man in Mani!

Your wedding day is the one day when your hands and feet are in focus more than ever before. Zoomed-in engagement ring photographs and ceremonies involving washing of the feet or taking off footwear ensure that your untrimmed nails or dirty skin growth will suddenly be in the limelight. Get at least a basic manicure and pedicure involving a scrub, nail cleaning and trimming.

To wax or not to wax?

And that’s the golden question for you to answer! Body hair is only natural, and should really not bother anyone. But in case you do suffer from excess body hair, and you know that your bride-to-be isn’t necessarily fond of it, why not surprise her with a clean wax? A wax leaves the skin much smoother than a shave (imagine a stubble on your back!). While waxing does of course hurt temporarily, and isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, a good salon and an experienced professional can make the most intimate of waxes comfortable. At the end of the day, know what you want and see what you’re comfortable with. But whether you wax or not, do keep a check on your nose and ear hair, because nobody finds that sexy!

Shine that smile!

This is definitely important if you’re a smoker, or generally suffer from yellowing teeth. While over-the-counter whitening toothpastes are available, pay your dentist a visit for a regular teeth cleaning and whitening session to ensure a smile that light up your photographs and videos!

Therapeutic Massage

Weddings, as amazing as they are, are also a very stressful event. And nothing beats that stress better than a good full body massage before your wedding day. Relax, de-stress, and come out recharged and fresh for the big day!

Psstt…. Last but not the least, with all the celebrations that go on the days before, hangovers are not that uncommon, and often show up on your face, especially under your eyes. A quick 15-minute session with cucumber slices on your eyes, or refrigerated tea bags to cover your eye lids on your wedding day can do wonders!

These are the days of the cosmopolitan male, and the grooming opportunities are endless! Follow these tips, and be ensured that you’ll be shining as brightly as your pretty bride on your big day!

 

 

Molecular Gastronomy at Weddings: A new trend catching up in India

 

molekularna_kuchnia14

With every wedding we help plan, the one common request has always been to do something different, something that the guests will remember and talk about for years to come. And we love introducing our clients to new trends that bring a smile to their faces.

liquid_nig

One of our favourite wow-factors is the new trend currently making inroads in India, of molecular gastronomy. Molecular gastronomy is a culinary innovation, where food scientists study the chemicals and reactions that go into cooking, and come up with unique new ways of mixing ingredients with experimental and never seen before dishes. They work with equipment that might look right out of a chemistry lab, and produce food that is a new experience in itself, a burst of visuals, flavours and drama appealing to all your senses!

chocolate-sphere-540x360-300dpi

With the cult following obtained by Master Chef, the Indian culinary scene is soon becoming more and more about presentation followed by unique flavour and texture combinations. And molecular gastronomy offers all of that and so much more!
p15990-14346284075582b13713fcf

Imagine spoons carrying soup bubbles which burst in warm flavours in your mouth. Cocktails letting out colourful smoke as you sip them. Ice spheres carrying unique cocktails which need to be cracked in your glass. Mushroom soup prepared in the form of tea in front of your eyes, complete with truffle powder that looks like sugar. A globe of potato shreds that ends up tasting like the most amazing chaat you’ve ever had. Paan flavoured candy floss served at the end of the meal. And mishti dahi palette cleansers offered between courses.

gallery_102

A few Indian restaurants and chefs have started specialising in molecular gastronomy, some of whom also offer catering services. While it might not be practical to have the entire food menu based on molecular gastronomy, having one special counter serving select dishes would be ideal. But do remember, molecular gastronomy is as much about the theatrics and wonder as it is about the amazing new tastes, and the preparation and presentation require time. So if your wedding has a large number of guests, you might have to set up multiple counters to ensure everyone is able to experience the histrionics about to unfold for them. Such counters are definitely must-haves for classy cocktails, and go very well with themed events.

While the portions are usually measured, the play of flavours on your guest’s taste buds will leave them in awe and wonder, with a blissful taste and experience they won’t really be able to describe in words!

Bridal Vanity Kit Checklist

This post has been extracted from weddingplz.com

We all love shopping but shopping specially for cosmetics and other make-up essentials is the most delightful experience for a bride. You are the best judge of your skin type, so make sure you yourself shop for your bridal vanity kit essentials. You are the star of this auspicious occasion, so don’t let your incomplete kit spoil your big day. Go through this savior checklist we have for you and you won’t miss anything at all.

 

Face:

Face-makeup.weddingplz.jpg

  • Primer: For that beautifully clear and radiant skin, go for a good quality primer which is rich in vitamins so that even after wearing layers of make-up, your skin can breathe properly.
  • Foundation: Look for a foundation that matches your skin color. Too much lighter shade can make you look disastrous on stage and in pictures.
  • Concealer: Mostly people don’t need a concealer after applying primer and foundation but you should always keep it in your kit to get away with those dark blemishes.
  • Face Powder: If the wedding is in summers then face powder is a must to save you from melting make-up. It will fix your make-up and help you get a shine free matte finish.
  • Blush: As per your skin tone, pick up pinkish or peachy shade of blush to add definition to your cheekbones. Go for matte blush if your skin is oily and shimmery for normal to dry skin type.
  • Moisturizer: To keep your skin hydrated.
  • Sunscreen: To save yourself from tanning.
  • Face Wipes: For staying fresh all the time.
  • Sindoor and Bindi: Since now you will be a newlywed, this is something you need to carry all the time.
  • Rose Water: For moisture and freshness.

Eyes:

Eye-makeup.weddingplz.jpg

  • Eye-shadow: Its better you keep a palette of eyeshadow that has many colors from light to darker ones, so that you don’t have to panic even if the one you thought will go well with your dress actually did not create the same magic.
  • Kajal Pencil: Black is the evergreen color for eye make-up as it goes well with every eye color, but you can always have blue or green color for a chic look.
  • Eyeliner: Liner can be liquid based, gel based or like a sketch pen, go for the one which you are comfortable using.
  • Eyelash Curler: If you are not very comfortable using false eyelashes then you must keep an eyelash curler to perfectly spread them out and to make your eyes look bigger.
  • Mascara: Go for a good quality waterproof mascara to make your lashes look darker and thicker.

Lips:

Lipstick.weddingplz.jpg

  • Lipstick: A right shade of lipstick can transform your look completely. Shades like cherry red, magenta and coral are must haves in your kit.
  • Lip Balm: For prepping up the lips.

Hair:

Hair.weddingplz.jpg

  • Shampoo: Keep a mild shampoo to save yourself from bad hair day.
  • Conditioner: For adding moisture and lusture to hair.
  • Hair Brush & Rollers: To style your hair and add volume to it.
  • Bobby pins: To secure the frizzy flicks.
  • U-pins: For the perfect neat bun.
  • Clutcher: For a normal hairdo.

 

Nail :

Nailpaint.weddingplz.jpg

  • Nail Paint: You must keep at least two three nice colors like maroon, magenta or the one that matches the color of your dress.
  • Nail Paint Remover: To make it easy for you to change the nail color according to dress.

 

Miscellaneous :

Vanity-kit-checklist.weddingplz.jpg

  • Small Mirror: Everything you keep in your vanity is of no use if you forget to keep this thing.
  • Hand Sanitizer: To clean your hands before using any product on face.
  • Perfume/ Deo: Because smelling fresh is as important as feeling fresh.
  • Make-Up Brushes: Keep a set of make-up brushes for face and lips both.
  • Kajal Sharpner: For perfectly defined eyes.
  • Safety Pins: Keep a bunch of it.
  • Make-Up Remover/Cleanser: It’s a must have.
  • Cotton Balls: It’s a strict no no to leave home without them.
  • Sanitary Napkins: You don’t always remember the date so it’s better to keep them all the time.

This list will surely save you from all the last minute hassles while getting ready and assure you of looking stunning as a bride.

5 Wedding Day Details That Matter

 

 Simply South Wedding

Sure, there are a lot of finer details in putting up a wedding ceremony but here are 5 wedding day details that matter but are tend to be ignored in all the hotchpotch of a wedding.

 

  1. Your Entry & Exit
    Your wedding day is of course all about you. Entries and exits are so important and constantly evolving with Asian weddings. Remember to always pick or agree your walk-in music with the DJ beforehand because it can really set the tone for the rest of the ceremony. If you want more of a silent ceremony then go for something calming and perhaps instrumental, whereas if your event is more of a party then go for something upbeat or even a little funny.BW 7pjb11

Similarly exits are also changing. No longer are brides expected to hug 25+ family members as she completes her vidaai. Instead couples are opting for more of a western-style celebration where the bride and broom walk out to cheers greeted with rose petals or confetti. It’s your last chance to drive home your sense of style – make the most of it.

 

  1. Stationery
    Signage is key at any event. Be sure to wow your guests as soon as they walk in with a welcome sign, or perhaps a seating plan and personalized place cards. If the bar’s going to be open then why not opt for a drinks menu or get some personalized napkins or coasters to dish out with your drinks. Your chosen stationery will help you tie everything together and make your theme and style statement visible to your guests.01c3f395ab713867b3caa321b120084a

If you’re having any quirky additions at your event such as a photo booth then think about having specific signage for this or maybe even a cardboard cut-out of the bride or groom or some well-known face. Think about what will set your celebrations apart.

 

  1. Favours
    Favours are your main chance to thank your guests for their attendance. Your chosen gifts will largely depend on the type of guests you have. If you have a younger circle of friends and family you could potentially opt for alcohol miniatures or even a fun game, which will help everyone break the ice on the table.

If you want to play it safe then food is always a good option. Whether you go for cupcakes, macarons, biscuits or even chocolate bars, they’re sure to be a hit. You can personalize your boxes, wrapping or even get stickers made to match your theme.

 

 

 

 

  1. Guestbook

    Your guestbook is something you can take away with you and enjoy for years to come so think about what you will enjoy looking through as a couple. You may want to opt for a traditional book or perhaps have one big board which your guests can sign, which you can thang up in your house. Alternatively, more quirkier options are things like date suggestion jars and wedding advice cards.

Not only is it important to consider what you’ll be using as your guestbook, but think about where it will be placed. Your table will need some kind of decoration and signage to entice people to it. Keep it classy with some candles and petals, or even a photo frame or two. Remember space is a good thing – you don’t need to fill every inch of your table with items.

    If you’re having an evening reception or post ceremony celebration you’ll want to have a cake. While there are many alternatives to a traditional cake (which we’ll talk about in a later post) there are so many things to consider when choosing yours. You need to think about the size you need; while a 4-5 tier plus cake might look stunning, do you really need it? Or can you afford it? Perhaps you may just need one cake to cut and can have a separate serving one. The design of the cake is also key, ensure it is in keeping with your style.

As well as design, there are so many different flavours you can experiment with. Our personal advice is to keep it simple and ensure it is something that will appeal to most. For example, you can never go wrong with a classic victoria sponge.
