Mehndi Designs and Chura in Hindu Indian Weddings

Posted by TheIndianWeddings on August 11, 2010

Use of Mehndi by the Bride Considered Auspicious

The Role of Mendi in Indian Weddings

The Importance of Mendi in Indian Weddings

The use of Mehndi by ladies has been in practice for centuries. Now it is regarded as a part of the Hindu Indian wedding rituals. One day before the Indian wedding ceremony the bride’s hands and feet are decorated in designs with ‘mehndi’, a coloured paste of Henna, to make her look more beautiful. There is singing and dancing going on by the friends and relatives present during this process.

Another name for “Vivaah” or marriage is “haath pila karna” or simply translated, making hands yellow. Mehndi (henna) is applied to the bride’s hands and feet, meaning she is going to get married. However, single girls also apply ‘mehndi’ just to create temporary beautiful designs on their hands and feet. You can make friendship with a young Indian unmarried girl with Mehndi designs by filling the Indian matrimonial registration form.

Mehndi Designs are temporary tattoos with natural ingredients

Mehndi designs are non permanent colourings unlike tattoos which are engraved by chemicals and needles on bodies for permanent effects. Mehndi designs stay for short periods for about ten or twenty days depending upon how often you wash the designed parts. They enhance the beauty of the body and mehndi keeps the skin clear and soft as well. To find a bride for Hindu Indian wedding with Mehndi design you can do a dating registration.

Mehndi is a Natural Powder from Plants With No Side Effects

Mehndi is made from flowering plants which are dried and powdered. The bushes can be of any height stretching up to twenty feet. The powdered leaves, which we call mehndi, is used for colouring various things, including hair, skin, leather, silk, wool, etc.

In Indian wedding or on other functions, ladies dye their hands, feet and ankles with mehndi. They draw various designs, including writings, pictures, etc. on the body parts. These designs are temporary with no side effects. Water is simply added to the powder and the paste is used for drawing the designs. Some ready made mixtures and pastes of mehndi with added chemicals are available. These are chemical mehndi, sparkle mehndi, stone mehndi, etc. which are not well known to ladies. Most ladies opt for natural mehndi powder, adding water and using the paste for drawings on the body parts or colouring their hair. Mehndi is used for colouring other things aswell. This natural mehndi powder is easily available from any local Indian shop and is quite cheap.

Beautiful Drawings From Mehndi The Easy Way

Mehndi designs are quite easy to draw. It needs a bit of practice to master it. This is a body artwork which adds to the beauty and personality of the lady in her expensive jewellery and fine cloths. You may practise on a piece of paper with a pencil of the drawing you intend to put on hands, wrists, feet, ankles, etc. Some people use stencils to get pictures. But free hand drawings are simpler and quicker and it is a great fun to work on mehndi designs in Indian wedding. If the drawing has gone wrong, simply take off mehndi with a cloth or tissue paper from that part and start again. The colour impression takes hours to come. Many families now bring in the experts to do the job of mehndi designs in Indian wedding while assembled people watch, joke, laugh and sing. Eateries and soft drinks are there in abundance on the wedding occasion. Do a dating search to find a bride who knows about mehndi.

Chura or Bangles Wearing Ceremony

Choora or Chura bangles wearing ceremony is performed on the day of the Hindu Indian wedding. Red and white plastic bangles are worn by the bride to signify the newly wed status. Anyone seeing a lady with these red and white bangles in both the arms will recognise that she is newly wed. These bangles are normally presented by ‘mamaji’, bride’s uncle at Indian wedding. The bride normally wears these for forty one days after the Indian wedding, or as per family’s traditions. Afterwards, she can wear other ‘chura’, a set of bangles, of colours of her liking for as long as she desires. Bangles of different colours are worn by single girls also as a fashion.

Gold and plastic bangles are worn by ladies of all ages as these look nice in their arms and enhance their beauty. On special occasions like Diwali or their birthdays, ladies buy new bangles, including gold ones. They are very fond of gold bangles. In times of distress or hardship in the family when they need extra money, gold jewellery is the easiest means as they can sell it and raise money. Gold jewellery is, therefore, also a security against time of need. You can try to find a wife wearing gold jewellery by completing a dating registration.

There are various wedding dresses worn in different cultures and countries of the world. It depends on country, religion, tradition and desire. These wedding dresses are quite different from Indian wedding dresses. India, being a very big country, has people with different cultural backgrounds living there. Some of them also wear western dresses in Indian wedding.

Bride’s Dress

Bride’s wedding dress is usually white in western countries, though “wedding white” includes creamy shades such as eggshell, cream, ecru and ivory. The tradition continues today in the form of a white wedding, though prior to the Victorian era, a bride was married in any colour except black or red. Today, the white dress is normally understood to represent the vergin bride and also as its the most traditional and popular choice for weddings.
In Europe and North America, the typical attire for a bride is a formal dress and a veil. Usually, the dress is bought only for the wedding, and never worn again. Wearing a white wedding gown is a tradition started in queen Victoria’s wedding (UK). In addition to the gown, the bride often wears a veil and carries bouquet of flowers. Some Indian ladies also wear western wedding dresses and they can be contacted on ApnaMatch.

Groom’s Dress

The style of the groom’s clothing in western countries depends upon the time of day, the location of the ceremony, the style in which the ceremony is performed, and whether the groom is a member of the armed forces. In most parts of the world, active duty members of the military and some law enforcement agencies wear their military uniforms instead of civilian clothing at the wedding.

In the US, the groom usually wears a dark-coloured suit (daytime) or tuxedo (evening) during the wedding ceremony.

Fabulous Gold Jewellery Worn by The Bride in Hindu Indian Wedding

Posted by TheIndianWeddings on August 8, 2010

Brides Wear Gold Jewellery As is Customary in Hindu Indian Weddings

Role of Gold Jewellery in Hindu Indian Wedding

The Role of Gold Jewellery in Hindu Indian Weddings

Gold jewellery worn with red saree makes the bride extremely beautiful in Hindu Indian weddings. She may not have used gold jewellery while being single as beautiful artificial jewellery is available in abundance. New gold jewellery is ordered for her at her Indian wedding. Gold items are for her ankles, hands, wrist, neck, ears, nose, forehead, head, etc. Also ordered are other gold jewellery items like ring, cufflinks, wrist watch with bracelet for the groom. Then some gold jewellery for bride’s mother and father in law, gold rings for groom’s brothers and necklaces for his sisters. Have a bride loaded with gold by matrimonial browsing online. Giving jewellery can be an expensive affair but the bride’s parents have to do it as it is considered a part of the Indian wedding. Some parents take loans to arrange gold jewellery and other items for their daughter’s wedding.

Burden for Some Families to Give Gold Jewellery

Some parents store gold jewellery for their daughter’s wedding because it is the main part of dowry in Indian wedding. A daughter will have to be married when she gets in her twenties, or whatever age parents consider appropriate for her wedding. The thought of collection of gold jewellery and other items for her dowry takes birth in the parents’ minds from day one a daughter is born. For ordinary families who live on regular and hard earned wages, to arrange everything at the time of wedding is not an option at all. They do regular savings and buy item by item at appropriate times for her Indian wedding. The collection of dowry, therefore, starts long before the daughter is to be married. The gold jewellery specially is considered a burden forced by the society’s customs and rituals. You too can have an Indian bride laden with jewellery by filling in the Indian matrimonial registration form.

Wealthy Families Take Pride in Giving Gold Jewellery

On the other hand, a wealthy family takes pride in giving heavy sets of gold jewellery even when their daughter is professional and at a good job earning high income, may be more than her husband to be. Indian wedding is the occasion these rich people can show their money power derived from their high positions in society. Have associations with a rich family to gain wealth and fame by doing your own dating search.
