A Typical Tamilian Marriage
India is a vast country with different religions and cultures. Here you will find people followingdifferent cultures. If you do not know what this preceding sentence means then I cannot help you as I am not here to explain.
Here you will find a slide show of a Tamilian Marriage. This is a simple one. A more Lavish one will have more activities but since I have not visited one such I cannot show you the same. But the basic procedures have been followed for a Tamilian Marriage.
However this is different from other marriages in India.. for eg. Punjabi Marriage,. Bengali Marriage, Marathi Marriage, Gujarati Marriage, sikh marriage, muslim marriage, christian marriage.. yes we have it all!!
Compare to Christian Marriages a Hindu marriage has lots of rituals!! And as said above, even in Hindu Marriages, the rituals vary from state to state (state means basic mother tongue is different even though they may be all Hindus). So here you see a Tamilian Hindu Marriage. Here they do a funny thing!! They hold the reception in the evening (and also the blessings ceremony) and the actual marriage on the morning next (at 6/7 am!!!!). I wonder what will happen if the bride or bridegroom thinks they do not want to marry next morning after getting all he gifts!! LOL!!
Oooopss!! Sorry no hard feelings!! That was just a joke!!
On the photos, well.. do not forget that I call myself an Amateur!!
By the way... I wish all that I can wish for the newly wed!!
