Are You An Indian In Abroad? Five Ways to Add an Indian Touch to Your Wedding

Paint it Red

Red or maroon outfits are considered to the traditional wedding outfits in India, if you think that pure maroon will look quite out of place in a foreign country you can pair a white lengha or saree with an embroidered red dupatta for a finish that will pay homage to the authentic Indian bride in red.

Dual celebrations

For couples confused about how to combine ceremonies and rituals from two different cultures, a double ceremony is the perfect solution Traditional Indian ceremonies are often held in the morning because it’s considered an auspicious time of day; if you’re opting for two ceremonies, consider scheduling one in the morning and one later in the day right before the cocktail hour.

Mehendi
