Malika & Alex, Grandover Resort 2015 Day 2

If you thought Day 1 was fantastic – wait until you see day 2!  There were 3 total ceremonies and a reception on this day – the Chuda Ceremony, the Baarat, the Wedding Ceremony and the Reception.  Check out a couple of photos from each!

Chuda Ceremony – On the wedding day the rituals at the girl’s home begin with the Chuda ceremony. To commemorate the Chuda ceremony, a havan or puja is conducted by the pandit. Thereafter, the pundit ties a mauli on the to be bride’s wrist. The oldest maternal uncle and aunt play an important role in the performance of the ceremony. They fast till the event is completed. Chuda is basically a set of red and cream ivory bangles that is touched by all present. People touch the chuda and give their heartiest wishes to the girl for her future married life. Also, they sprinkle flower petals on the bride. Prasad is distributed to all. After that, the girl’s uncle, aunt, friends and cousins tie kaliras (silver, gold or gold plated traditional ornaments) to a bangle worn by the girl.
