Gujarati Weddings-nose pulling ritual

After all the wedding preparations, inviting the guests by sending traditional Lagna Kankotri; in a pre-wedding ritual, the groom visits his bride’s home to seek blessings. The bride’s mother gives her blessing to the groom by playfully pulling his nose.

Bihari Weddings-the test of endurance

In Bihari weddings, after the marriage ceremony is over and the bride reaches her in-law’s place, the endurance of a new bride is tested by placing huge earthen pots on her head. More pots are added to increase the difficulty level.

Tribal Weddings-abduction of brides

Ancient tribes in some parts of India follow ‘abduction ritual’, where the groom carries away his bride on his back and keeps her hidden somewhere for a year. After a year, they have a normal ceremony with the consent of the parents of bride.

Manipuri Weddings-Taki Fish ritual

During Manipuri Weddings, women from groom’s side and from the bride’s family release one Taki fish in a pond. It is believed that if the other fishes swim side by side in the pond; it brings good luck for bride and groom.
