A popular belief that marriages are made in heaven and are celebrated on earth is undeniable. Marriages are a special bond between two souls who tie their nuptial knot after promising lifetime companionship. Although, the theme of the wedding is the same all over the globe, but the manner of honoring the same is a bit different. There are ample of rites and rituals to in every religion when the marriage takes place and same is the case with Telugu Matrimony.
Telugu Matrimony is done strictly in tuned with the age-old traditions as well as customs. This is the very reason that Telugu Matrimony resembles with the Hindu customs and traditions. The bride is brought in the mandap by her maternal uncle. There is a curtain in between the couple whilst the priest is reciting some mantras. Then, Kanyadaan ritual is performed by bride’s father when he washes groom’s feet and gives away his daughter. The time when the groom ties Mangalsutra ritual, the curtain is removed.
After this, the garlands are exchanged and Kanya Daan Akshata ceremony takes place where the flowers and yellow colored rice are showered. This is how the Telugu wedding happens!
