Marriages are by nature a fusion of two households and their ethnicities. With that in mind, several Asiatic civilizations have countless practices and rituals surrounding the marriage weekend. Some may be recognizable with the Mehndi Ceremony, but what about the Milni Ceremony Come consider a closer look at some of the most common bridal tradition in asia.

The Mehndi ( kazakhstan girls 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 occasion but it also symbolizes the strength of the tie between the wedding and her future husband.

On the day of the ceremony, the bride is typically escorted to her couple’s apartment by her parental aunt and is welcomed by the female members of the couple’s relatives with red packets of cash( significantly like we might view a “celebrity” render a magnificent entrance 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 and to show their appreciation and respect for her.
