A Closer Look at a Bride Custom in Asia

Marriages are by character a fusion of two households and their nations. With that in mind, many Eastern cultures have countless beliefs and rites surrounding the marriage 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 popular wedding history in eurasia.

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 event but it also symbolizes the strength of the bond between the wife and her future partner.

On the day of the wedding, the wedding is generally escorted to her groom’s residence by her parental brother and is welcomed by the female members of the groom’s family with red packets of wealth( significantly like we might see a “celebrity” make a great entry at their bridal). 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 and to show their appreciation and respect for her.
