A Closer Look at a Bride Custom in Asia

Celebrations are by nature a fusion of two individuals and their nations. With that in mind, several Asian nations have various customs and rites surrounding the bridal trip. Some may be familiar with the Mehndi Ceremony, but what about the Milni Service? Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common bride tradition in eurasia.

The Mehndi ( or Henna ) ceremony is a pre- wedding celebration where the bride and her female family members and friends get their hands decorated with intricate henna designs. This is not only a joyous celebration but it also symbolizes the strength of the friendship between the bride and her future spouse.

On the day of the ceremony, the wedding is generally escorted to her groom’s home by her parental brother and is welcomed by the adult members of the couple’s family with dark bits of income( many like we might see a “celebrity” generate a grand access at their bride). The groom makes his way to the mandap where he sits alongside the bride and takes seven steps, which are similar to saying their vows in a western wedding.

The tying of the knot is typically followed by the Saptapadi, where the couple promises themselves and each other that they will honor their parents, live in harmony and treat each other with respect. Then the newly married couple will leave for their honeymoon! Traditionally, the groom would escort his bride back to her parents on the third day after the wedding and honor them by paying respects to their elders. This was to thank them for raising her and to show their appreciation and respect for her.
