Did you Know? Indian weddings are a colorful event.
A lady may be barred from doing housekeeping if she has any colour from the bridal mendhi (henna) on her hands. Indian weddings are frequently colourful multi-day events that might run anywhere from three days to a week. The celebrations begin with the Ganesh puja, which is usually a private event with the couple and their close families to honour good fortune, followed by the mendhi ceremony the next day, during which henna patterns are painted on the bride and her female friends and family. The sangeet—a musical night to greet all the wedding guests—is usually held that evening, with the main ceremony and celebration taking place on the third day.
