A Hindu wedding ceremony is a religious occasion in an Indian society. It has evolved from the vedic period which historians place between 3000-5000 B.C.E. The ceremony is a collection of rituals performed by the bride and the groom, their parents, and close relatives and friends. Panditji reads “Mantras” (verses) from the Holy Scriptures (the Vedas), written in Sanskrit-the original Indian Language. The wedding ceremony takes place in a “Vivah Mandap” a wedding pavilion. Each ritual has a symbolic spiritual, and philosophical meaning. Fresh Flowers- to signify beauty, Cocunut- to signify fertility, Rice- to signify the food necessary to sustain human life, Purified butter-to feed the scared fire, KumKum (vermilion)- red powder to signify good luck and to say that the soul of bride and groom is with them.
