Today we talk about Indian traditions.
Specifically, the wedding SARI and why the gorgeous dress worn by Indian brides is red.
Now thanks to television and social channels, we all know that in Indian culture, to be precise in the northern area, the bride’s dress is red, but why? Meanwhile, you should know that, as in Italy, marriage is also highly sacred in India. This is because it does not only unite the spouses but, as a tradition, also their families and their ancestors.
That’s why the more precious the red sari is, the more affluent the bride’s family is. This gorgeous garment is rigorously made of silk, with very precious embroidery sometimes in gold, accessorized with a veil of the same color. RED as a sign of good luck, fertility and prosperity.
For those like me who love to be full of bracelets and rings, you must know that, in India, adornment is the watchword: every jewel and every color has its own precise meaning, here I will tell you a few, just to intrigue you. a little.
Let’s start with the tattoos that you have surely seen in the images of Indian brides, they are called Mehndi, they are tatoo made with Henna and brides and women participating in the wedding, that day they are all full of them, each with their own. The hands and feet are decorated, those of the bride specifically are considered propitiatory.
You know those wonderful pendants placed on the forehead? It is called Mang Tikka in their culture it represents the potential of the woman to perpetuate the lineage of her beloved husband.
In the photos you can also see that big nose ring, it demonstrates the virginity of the bride and it will be the groom who will remove it in their intimacy on the first wedding night.
Bracelets on bracelets on bracelets, one more wonderful than the other. They have a meaning related to the duration of the marriage. You must know that custom has it that if the husband ever dies, they will all be broken into pieces and never worn by the grieving wife again.
Last but not least, the Sindoor or the red dot of dust placed between the eyebrows on the forehead, it signifies the indissoluble belonging to a single man.
If this is not love.
They are Indian traditions, as every country has its own, even India has its own, right or wrong it is not up to anyone else to judge them, my task is to make their day unique and unforgettable, so that they can remember it for the whole their life.
