Asian marriage rites are full of rich culture and traditions. From elaborate meals to wonderful hand- drawn henna designs on the bride’s hands and feet, to the ceremonial lighting of a sacred fire and tying of the couple together with silk ribbons, each detail is considered to be symbolic and significant for the marriage.

Several lovers consult a fortune teller or a Chinese monk to help them choose an auspicious meeting for their bridal. They even seek out the guidance of their elders and ask them to offer their riches on the union.

Visitors often offer presents to the bride and groom at the service. The groom’s community generally offers a scented handkerchief to the wife, and the bride’s parents give the pair decorated leaves of Sakaki ( a sacred trees used in worship of gods). There is no best man or giving aside of the bride in a Shinto ceremony ceremony and a few terms are spoken by the pastor before the meeting concludes with the couple offering the leaves of Sakaki along.

In Indian ceremony rites, the wedding wears a lehenga which is a longer piece of fabric draped around the brain and embellished with intricate adornments. The groom wears a kurta which is a longer layer- like garment. At the festival, friends pour holy waters from their clam shells over the couple’s joined hands to thank them and present their best wishes. During the greeting, there are usually bear performers which are believed to ward off evil spirits.
