WEDDINGS OF INDIA – PUNJABI WEDDING
INDIAN WEDDING – PUNJABI WEDDING – SIKH WEDDING
A Punjabi Wedding reflects the large hearted Punjabi culture. Punjabis are very fun loving and enthusiastic people. The Weddings are full of dance and colors. There are many rituals in a Punjabi Wedding namely, Takha, Shagun, Dholki Sangeet, Mehendi, Vatna, Sarbala, Sehrabandi, Varna, Milni, Jaimala, Kanyadaan, Lavan and others. Punjabis are popular for their traditional dance “Bhangra”, which makes their weddings more enjoyable. The first ceremony of any Punjabi wedding is “Roka” which marks the engagement. Then, “Sagan” and “Chunni Chadana” follow Roka.
Like the traditional ritualistic pattern of any Indian Wedding, a Punjabi wedding also follows all the celebrations, of Jaimala and Pheras. The wedding ceremony starts from the “Chuda” ceremony at the bride’s place and at the groom’s place with “Vatna” ceremony. Once the couple is blessed by all the elderly people at home, the brother of the bride accompanies the couple for Vidaai to the main exit of their home.
