Wedding Rituals From Around The Corners of The World: Which One is Yours?


Wedding Rituals From Around The Corners of The World: Which One is Yours?

Sanskrit mantras chanting, bantering, talking, laughing, ceremonies getting performed, dancing, guests are eating, enjoying. This is all the atmosphere of an Indian wedding where if this doesn’t happen that I have in the above lines, then a wedding is not a wedding. It is like a huge fair of families, guests, and relatives. Every one of the family comes and get together at one place and do lots of enjoyment and fund. 


Without these all, an Indian wedding is not a wedding, just a show that no one would want to be part of. When two families come together in a wedding, they become part of each other accepting each other with all flaws and goods. So a wedding is a celebration of a union. 


In every wedding that takes place around the different corners of worlds, there are different rituals that signify them, and some are specific that represent them. So we are going to tell you about such wedding rituals that are fun and enjoying if you have become a part of it. If not then you can read about them here in our blog. Buckle up guys and gals!



India: Joota Chhupai

And it is not that easy to take and hide the shoes of groom because his gang also guard them during the whole wedding. It is a two-sided fun merriment fight. Groom’s friends want to save him from giving cash amount of money to sisters-in-law and friends while on the other hand, bride’s gang want to steal. 

So this fight continues till the end of the wedding, and win only those who have the groom’s shoes. You must have seen it in many Bollywood movies.
