Customs of ceremony in Asia

From India to Indonesia, China to Japan, Asia has a wealth of fantastic cultures, faiths and practices. Below we examine some of the more substantial people that have survived the test of time with regards to weddings and relationship.

A Mehndi Service

A Mehndi Ceremony is an important pre-wedding ritual that takes place in many Asian cultures and involves the application of intricate henna designs on the hands and feet of the bride. This is thought to bring good luck, fertility and prosperity to the couple. This ceremony is often accompanied by music and dancing and it is customary for the bride’s female friends and relatives to also get their hands decorated with henna.

An critical and symbolic bride custom known as the Chinese marriage or Guo Da Li festival occurs to mark the beginning of a formal commitment between the princess’s and groom’s families. At this ceremony, which is typically followed by a family dinner party, several gift exchanges, including the Pin Li ( betrothal ang pao ) and Jia Zhuang ( bride’s dowry ) take place.

During this meeting the bride is typically escorted to her dad’s residence by female members of her family who greet them at the doorway. She typically wears a dark skirt, dress, or other piece of clothing, and is often adorned with gold and silver jewelry, especially a collar made of dome-shaped bells called Kalire, which is said to protect against bad. The bride and groom next exchange vows at a eastern wedding on a raised system known as the Mandap, which are similar to the Mandap.
