Wedding Wear


      Attire is extremely important in an Indian wedding, not only for the marrying couple, but also the guests attending, the family, and the relatives. The bride is usually dressed up in auspicious colors, whereas the bridegroom is dressed to exude a regal aura. The bridesmaids and groomsmen are often dressed on par with the bride and the groom, but not as elaborately as the bride and groom. Many of the guests attending the wedding wear gold jewelry including the bride and sometimes the groom. The women are additionally adorned with henna patterns on their palms, hand, forearms, legs, and feet. Sometimes henna patterns are replaced with alta designs which are short lived and easily removable.

      In some cultures, the groom also sports henna, although it is often less elaborate or muted. Indian weddings generally tend to continue for several days and new attire is worn each day. All these dresses and the colour symbolize the meaning of marriage and the period that follows it. An Indian wedding is one that gives more importance to details like different rituals and the various attires one wears to attend them.
