Indian weddings are sacred religious ties between the families of the bride and the bridegroom. They are elaborate, expensive and emotional events, which are eagerly awaited, by all the young girls and boys when they are treated like kings and queens of the day. Though, different communities have different rituals throughout India, the basic turnout of the marriage event remains the same.

Most of the Hindu weddings are announced on the auspicious times as predicted by the Hindu Vedic astrologers. The traditional weddings used to be more than a week long though people cut short the events these days. There is an event for almost everything. Adorning the bride with turmeric to cleanse her skin is celebrated as a ceremony for ladies known as 'Haldi', while painting her hands and feet beautifully and intricately with henna paste is celebrated as 'Mehandi'.

There are ceremonies to celebrate the occasion when the families visit each other before the wedding and send costly gifts to each other along with sweets, fruits and dry fruits. These pre-wedding ceremonies are followed by the Big day, when the nuptial knots of the bride and the bridegroom are tied. There is an elaborate wedding feast for all the family and friends that are invited. After the main day function is over there are various pre wedding rituals to be done.

So whether you are looking for the Indian Venues or simply need to find a Wedding Sari you must try weddings.IloveIndia.com.
