Christian Bridal Saree
Christian wedding reminds of beautiful peaceful wedding adorned in white color decor symbolizing purity. Christian weddings in India like other religions are deeply rooted in its religion and that is why the wedding takes place in the church before a priest and is attended by close relatives only. According to Christian belief a marriage is the union of two souls which is blessed by Christ.
A wedding is formalized after the groom puts a ring into bride’s finger which is a sign of affirmation from the groom’s side that after this, he will marry her only. Then a priest or an elder in the family makes the Christian sign thrice with his hands so that they stay away from the evil. The wedding celebrations begin with Bridal shower in which all the female relatives and friends gift presents to the bride and bless her for her happy married life. This occasion is filled with fun and enjoyment where the bride serves a pink cake to all her relatives in which a thimble is hidden and whoever receives that thimble in her piece of cake will be the next to get married. Similarly, bachelor’s party is thrown by the groom for his friends. It involves enjoyment as all the men indulge into heavy drinking.
On the wedding day which usually happens in the morning or afternoon the Christian bride wears a wedding dress which is a white colour gown and sometimes Indian Christian brides also prefer a white colour saree with a white veil of net and a flower bouquet in her hands. The white colour is a symbol of purity and virginity. The Christian groom on the other hand, dresses in a formal suit which can be in white or black colour.
The bride and the groom then leave for the church where the wedding ceremony will be conducted. Unlike other Indian marriages where the groom is welcomed by the bride’s family, in Christian weddings the bride arrives later and the groom waits for her. The bride is then welcomed by the best man with a kiss on her hand and gives her a bouquet of flowers. They both then walk up to the place where the priest is standing beside whom the groom stands waiting for her bride-to-be.
