Gujarati weddings are no less than carnivals. If you are attending a Gujarati wedding of your close mate, you will come across all or some of these things we are gonna see below.
A Gujarati Wedding is a grand affair. There are several rituals and ceremonies where family, friends and well-wishers from near and far gather to cheer the newlywed couple. This day is considered to be one of the most auspicious occasions for a Gujarati. The couple is treated as the King and Queen for a day, and an entire day is spent in celebrating the marriage.
Known for its historicity & hospitality, Gujarat offers you a wide variety of exciting wedding traditions.
Gujaratis hold Garba Night a few days before the actual wedding day. Where friends and family from both sides come together to do Garba together. Since Gujarati people love dance, Graba nights last more than one specific night. Most probably goes on till the day of Wedding day.
Gujaratis take wedding gifts pretty seriously. Whether it’s a gift to the bride or groom or their families, it’s always extravagant & helpful stuff they give. More often than not you’d see them bringing money in envelopes since there is nothing more helpful than cash.
Gujarati Wedding isn’t complete without delicacies, is it? To put it better, Gujarati Weddings are a whole feast at it. Dhokla, Fafda, Khandvi, Puri and a lot more dishes are like cherry on the top. With good food, comes the good mood. Weddings become extra special when the mood is just right after food. If you are a non-gujarati attending a Gujarati wedding, you are in for a ride.
It’s not flirting over the drinking era, it’s flirting over the Dandiya era for Gujaratis. They are such a great flirt. That’s the reason why you will find many young couples blooming in Gujarati Weddings. Dandiya is a fun dance with sticks where you get to interact with people at your fullest. In fact, many future matches are made at one or the other wedding.
Aeki Beki is played by the couple where a large bowl is filled with milk, vermillion, water and coins. They put a gold ring in it as well which the couple has to find. They are allowed to use their right hands only. Whoever finds it first gets the prize. Aeki Beki is another one of few exciting games they play during the wedding.
