The following is the general breakdown for an Indian Wedding
A traditional Indian / Hindu Wedding lasts an average of three – Four days. On the first night, a priest/ Pandith will often perform the ganesh pooja / Prayer to the Lord Ganesh, a ceremony that usually happens at home with only the couple, the bridal party and close relatives in attendance.
Every auspicious occasion begins with the invocation of Lord Ganesh for creation of internal peace & an atmosphere of tranquility in which the ceremony performed. Worship of Lord Ganesh removes all obstacles, dispels the darkness of ignorance & showers the couple with happiness & prosperity.
On the Last day, The Hindu Wedding Ceremony encompasses a symbolic order of events stemming from the Vedas/ the oldest of Hindu Scriptures. Marriage will be blessed under a Mandap / a four pillared structure that symbolizes the first home & serves as a forum for God to witness & bless the union of the couple.
This whole 03 – 04 days program seeks to explain some of the traditions that the couple will honor.
