From spending the entire nights and days to create the perfect wedding for the bride and groom to the one night that matters more than anything, India weddings truly exemplify the celebration of love. Even if you are not one of the two getting married, Indian weddings have much in store for you, for example, meeting all members of your extended family, the finger licking food, the dancing and the singing, etc. they get you tired but yet leave cherishing memories in your heart. So here are ten things that you absolutely love about the Indian weddings:
10. The dressing up
Weddings are for all those who love to bring out the best of their looks and Indian weddings are the perfect occasion for this. Indian weddings give you an opportunity to wear all of your bling and jewels you own to shine like a diamond during each and every function that makes up the entire wedding. You get wear all of your new clothes, studded heavily with bright colors and stones that leave no stone turned to ensure an absolutely pretty look.
9. The shopping spree

You get to shop for all new things and not just for your outfit but also make wedding arrangements.
8. The venue
As the lights go on, the place changes its drab look to a lively one, welcoming people and hosting thousands of guests. Such is the venue of Indian weddings. While any venue can be good, the ideal one is the one with a huge lush gardens, with the altar on one side and catering stalls on the other. This venue is special not merely because its hosting a wedding but because it’s one of the few important aspects that complete the wedding.
7. Meeting the relatives and friends
What is so special about the venue and the shopping and the shopping if there is nobody to witness all of it. While it is important for you to have the extended family at the function to see all the efforts you have put in, it is more important for the bride and groom to receive the blessings from all those who have contributed to them being together.
At Indian weddings, you get to see all the old faces you have lost touch with and hence, you enjoy even more. “The more, the merrier”.
6. A social event
The reason you absolutely love Indian weddings is because its one hell of an event. It’s the social event which if once fixed becomes the most awaited event of the century. It is a recipe for a successful event. It has dancing, it has singing, the people and the food. Everything about it makes it grand enough for every person attending it. Each and every attendee finds his own place in the wedding, either doing some or the other work or simply interacting with those who haven’t been contacted with for long.
5. The rituals
And what is there to not love about those rituals that accompany the Indian weddings. From the “saat phere” to the “Jai mala”, each and every rituals has its own meaning that binds the happy couple in the sacred relation of marriage. Each and every rituals talks of the way in which the couple should function in order to live a happy married life. Many rituals also act as blessings from the god and the family members.
4. The celebration
Weddings are truly a celebration of love and commitment that the bride and groom make to each other. Every wedding is a celebration accompanied with joys and a few tears. Through rituals and blessing of the lord and the family members, the couple celebrates all their love by committing loyalty to each other and by promising to stand by each other in sickness and in health.
3. The food
So here is the one thing that all of us look forward to at the wedding, the food. From the scrumptious snacks to absolutely delicious 3 course meal, wedding food is something not to miss out on. No matter who you are or what you are doing in the wedding, food is something that you all must stop for to enjoy. Food is an essential part of Indian weddings that is lip smacking and lavish.
2. The music and the dance
No Indian function is complete without dancing and singing and weddings are just not happening enough if the entire family hasn’t danced to the occasion. This goes to the extent that in Indian weddings, there is a special function known as “Sangeet” which is meant solely for performing dances and singing all the wedding songs. From children to the aged, everyone performs in this function to express their joy.
1. Enjoying the work
Work, work, work! For those who enjoy moving themselves to complete a task, weddings are a hoot and a half. For those who enjoy organizing events, weddings are like gold mines. This all is adequately conveyed with the amount of work that comes along with Indian weddings. And not even a single part of it is boring. Though its tiring, you have to love the work as you enjoy doing at all points. When the consequence of your work is as grand as an Indian wedding, every little effort is worth the enjoyment.
