Indian wedding: the road

Since the bride was in a different city (about 200 km away) and the main ceremony was happening at her place, the groom side travelled in a convoy. Of course, a car was standing out, the one carrying the groom. Its decoration reminded me a bit about the car decorations in a Romanian wedding, but were more excessive.

Indian wedding: the blessings

If one thing happened a lot at the Indian wedding, this was the blessings: they were doing it at every step and again and again – the groom parents blessing the groom, the women in the groom house blessing the groom, the women blessing the plate at the river, the groom father blessing the bride, the bride father blessing the groom, the bride family blessing the groom, the groom family blessing the bride… and some more I forgot about for the moment 🙂

Indian wedding: the presents

The groom’s family prepared a lot of presents for the bride and her family. They were decorated by a specialist, a guy who does wedding present packaging for a living, then sent away, Of course, the bride’s family did the same, sending its own batch of presents. This exchange happened the day before the main wedding ceremony.

Indian wedding: the preparations

This turmeric based powder she is making here is used as an ingredient in many of the ceremonies around the wedding. It is also used for color and as spice for the curry 🙂 This operation happened at the groom’s house and was one of the first, it definitely was the first I attended too.

Martisor Tango

Just like last year, Mărțișor was celebrated at the subway, in the Unirii 1 station. This time the place was more crowded, with a lot more photographer, and also the program was richer: it had music and tango.
