Multi-Day Hindu Wedding Masterpiece
This will be the first summer wedding season since Covid began without any guest, mask, or vaccine restrictions. And as such, many couples who have been delaying their big wedding plans, are finally getting to have that dream wedding. This is especially the case for Southasian couples as their events can include very large guest counts and multiple days. Sina & Priyesh have been planning this multi-day Hindu Wedding for a while. They both have big families so this is going to be a very big, very long event.
The events for this wedding are scattered across 3 days. One is pretty small scale with close family and traditional ceremonies. While the other two days were big celebrations with even bigger guest counts. This also happened to be one of the best organized multiday Hindu Weddings I have ever done. Every traditional element was planned out and kept on schedule. And as a result, the couple actually got to enjoy the days with their family.
Day 2 Haldi
The Haldi ceremony can get a bit chaotic. The Haldi Ceremony consists of friends and family rubbing a turmeric paste on the bride. The purpose is to cleanse the skin and create a glow. Traditionally this ceremony involves “cleaning” the bride in preparation for their wedding day. The bride is not meant to shower after this ceremony. And normally, they would not leave the house or see each other. Though in this case, she showered soon after since she looked like a Simpsons character. But her brother took the courtesy of spraying her down with a hose first.
