We understand that marriage is a pious institution in every religion and community and so we serve everyone with the best matrimonial advice regardless of their community. We are one of the best Andhra Pradesh matrimonial sites in India.
In Indian society, marriage is believed to be a sacred institution and it’s not just between two individuals but two families. Every wedding ritual holds a special place and relation to the couple’s relationship in the future. While performing each one of them the couple is told the significance related to it. The wedding rituals are created with the thought of making the couple understand their responsibilities as a married man and woman. For instance, all communities have wedding vows in some form or other where they promise to play a specific role and love and support their spouse through thick and thin.
Andhra weddings are a lot more traditional like other southern states but they have also started to adopt a few north Indian ceremonies like sangeet. Few of the wedding rituals vary among the communities while most of them remain the same for everyone. The ceremonies used to go on for 14-16 days but are now elaborated for 2-3 days with each one of them carrying the rich cultural heritage along with religious significance.
For Hindu weddings, Muhurtham is very important which is decided by the priest after studying the couple’s horoscope. The bride wears a pattu silk saree with lots of gold jewelry including multiple necklaces, earrings, armband, waistband, head jewelry, and Phool Jada.
this is the engagement ceremony where it is made official to the family and friends that the couple is going to be married soon. A pooja is performed by the priest and the wedding date is decided along with the auspicious time of wedding which is called muhurtham. The couple exchange rings and are given clothes and gold by their future in-laws.
this is very similar to the Haldi ceremony from north Indian weddings. In both the houses, relatives are invited to shower their blessings upon the bride and groom. A paste of turmeric and oil which is called Nalugu is applied to the couple by family members whereas the parents gift new clothes to the relatives. This marks the beginning of wedding rituals which also prohibits the soon to be wed couple from stepping out of the home.
this ritual is performed only at the groom’s home. The Vedic ceremony signifies the end of the groom’s brahmacharya (bachelor’s life) and the beginning of grihastha (domestic life). The groom performs a small pooja and wears a holy silver thread and takes permission to get married by his guru.
similar to the Kashi yatra ritual in other southern states the groom gets ready to leave his house and acquire sanyas in Kashi. Along with him, he takes an umbrella, walking stick, bamboo fan, and a holy book. He pretends to leave for Kashi and then stopped by the bride’s brother. Who then makes him understand his duties and responsibilities towards his family and offers his sister’s alliance for marriage. The groom agrees to this proposal and returns back.
on the day of wedding, both the bride and groom are given a sacred bath in their respective homes to get them ready for their D-day. This ritual is believed to make them clean and prepared for the sacred rituals that they have to perform.
After the auspicious bath, the families perform pooja and offer a prayer to God so that the wedding is complete without any issues and the couple can start their married life with blessings of the almighty.
the groom arrives at the mandapam first and performs Ganesh pooja there whereas the bride performs Gauri pooja at her home with her family and prays to the goddess for a blissful married life. During the Gauri Pooja the bride’s gotram will be changed to groom’s gotra which is called pravara. The elder members of the family need to be present at the time of pravara. After the pooja, she leaves for the venue.
The bride enters the mandapam holding a tender coconut in hand with her maternal uncle. She sits in a bamboo basket which her uncle lifts and carries her to the mandapam. Kanyadanam is the ritual in which the father gives her daughter’s responsibility to the groom. The couple sits opposite to each other while a curtain is used in between as they are not allowed to see each other. The ritual starts with washing the groom’s feet by the bride’s father who then keeps her hands on the groom’s hand while her mother pours holy water and priest chants Vedic mantra. The groom tells his father in law that he will take care of the bride in all phases of life be it joy or sorrow.
A paste of cumin seeds and jaggery is kept on betel leaves and given to the couple. This is the actual wedding muhurtham when the curtain is removed and the couple lay their eyes on each other. They keep the paste on each other’s heads while the family showers their blessings on them. The bride is then offered a cream saree with red border by her in-laws and changes into it for further rituals. The groom also changes to a dhoti with a red border.
The bride returns to the mandapam and tying of mangal sutra takes place. In Telugu weddings, mangalsutra is a gold pendant in a yellow thread which the groom ties around the bride’s neck. He has to tie three knots which symbolizes their physical, mental and spiritual union.
rice coated with turmeric is showered on the couple by the married members of the family as they exchange garlands. This ritual is to bless the couple.
Like the seven pheras of north Indian weddings, the Telugu couple takes 7 rounds around the Agni and take their wedding vows. Each round holds a special promise which the couple makes to each other before they start their new life. The vows consist of their roles and responsibilities towards each other as husband and wife and to their family. The couple is announced married after this ritual.
At the end of the wedding, the groom makes his wife wear a toe ring which is one of the elements that signifies that the girl is married.
Christian weddings have very fewer rituals in comparison to Hindu and Muslim weddings. The Andhra Christian bride wears pattu silk sarees with a veil for their D-day with gold jewelry complementing their look and also holds a bouquet in her hand while the groom dresses up in a tuxedo or 3 piece suit. Nowadays many brides are opting for beautiful white wedding gowns as the west. Although the essence of traditional Indian culture can be seen in the Christian community weddings too.
A formal and separate engagement ceremony is celebrated by a few of the families where the couple exchanges ring in front of their family and friends. The ceremony makes it official for the relatives that soon the couple will marry. The bride and groom are showered with gifts by each other’s family like clothes, jewelry, fruits, and sweets etc.
the day prior to the wedding both families invite their relatives to their respective home which is the last celebration of the couple as bachelors with their close ones. In this ceremony first everyone makes the sign of cross on the bride and groom’s forehead with oil and then coconut milk is applied to the head, face, hands, and legs by the guests present in their home and later given a holy bath. The ceremony takes place to purify the soon to be married couple for the pious church service of their wedding day. A feast is enjoyed by everyone after the ritual with music and dance.
On the day of wedding the groom’s family visits the bride’s home and hands over her bridal dress which is blessed by the priest before the ceremony. The groom with his family reaches the church first and waits for his bride to arrive. A car is sent by the groom to bring the bride to the church where she is welcomed by the groom's family and taken to the altar by the groom's best man.
Once the couple reaches the altar prayers and religious songs are sung which the guests can join too. After that verses from the bible are read by either the priest or any family member.
after the prayer the priest commence the actual wedding ritual. He first tells about marriage and how sacred the union is believed and faith they should be having. He then recites the wedding vows which the couple repeats after him. In India, the couple is not allowed to prepare their own vows and has to take the traditional one only. The vows can differ a little in the sub-communities but summarize into the promise of staying by each other’s side in whatever situation life throws in front of them.
The traditional vow is as follows - I, (Name), take you, (Name), to be my wife/husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part, according to God's holy law, in the presence of God I make this vow.
The couple is then asked to exchange wedding rings. In south Indian Christian weddings the groom ties thali around the bride’s neck which is like mangalsutra like Hindu weddings. The thali is a gold chain with a leaf-shaped pendant having the sign of the cross on it. The groom then gives a wedding saree to the bride which is called mantrakodi which the priest blesses and keeps on the bride’s head. With this ritual, he announces them, husband and wife.
After the wedding, the couple reaches the reception venue with the wedding guests to celebrate their wedding. The family members and friends propose toasts to the newlyweds and congratulate them with the best wishes for their future. The entire clan then enjoys food and drinks.
