Asiatic wedding ceremonies are full of rich culture and traditions. From intricate meals to wonderful hand- drawn henna designs on the bride’s hands and feet, to the royal lighting of a spiritual fire and tying of the couple up with silk ribbons, each detail is considered to be metaphorical and significant for the marriage.

Some people discuss a fortune teller or a Chinese priest to help them decide an auspicious meeting for their bride. They even seek out the instruction of their mothers and ask them to offer their blessings on the union.

Guests usually offer items to the bride and groom at the ceremony. The groom’s community generally offers a perfumed handkerchief to the bride, and the couple’s parents give the few decorated leaves of Sakaki ( a sacred branch used in adoration of goddesses). There is no best man or giving ahead of the wedding in a Shinto bride meeting and a few words are spoken by the pastor before the ceremony concludes with the partners offering the stems of Sakaki up.

In Indian bridal festivities, the wedding wears a saree which is a much piece of fabric draped around the figure and embellished with intricate needlework. The wedding wears a saree which is a long coat- like garment. At the meeting, attendees pour holy water from their clam shells over the woman’s joined hands to bless them and provide their best wishes. During the reception, there are usually bear dancers which are believed to ward off evil spirits.
