A Mehndi Ceremony

A Mehndi Meeting 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 important and metaphorical bridal custom known as the Chinese marriage or Guo Da Li meeting occurs to mark the beginning of a elegant commitment between the bride’s and groom’s individuals. 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 ).

During this ceremony the bride is usually escorted to her dad’s apartment by male members of her family who greet them at the entrance. She typically wears a dark trousers, dress, or other piece of clothing, as well as gold and silver jewelry, particularly a collar made of dome-shaped bells called Kalire, which is said to protect against evil. The bride and groom subsequently exchange pledges at a northern bridal on a raised platform known as the Mandap, which are similar to the Mandap.
