Indian weddings are well-known for their fun-filled traditions that span over a couple of days. Every ritual followed by Indian families has its own significance and meaning. One such ceremony is the Pithi ceremony, better known as the Haldi ceremony, a ritual filled with a lot of fun and flare celebrated in the most extravagant way. During the Haldi ceremony for groom and bride, a dollop of Haldi(turmeric), curd, and sandalwood are smeared on their body prior to the ceremonial bath.
The Haldi ceremony symbolises happiness and prosperity in the lives of the bride and the new couple. The paste of Haldi is applied to the bride by the friends and relatives, offering her all blessings at the start of the married life. Haldi ceremony is usually done a day before the marriage or on the morning of the wedding ceremony.
The traditional excitement demands skilful planning to create the perfect ambience of the event. Symphony Events offer a wide variety of beautiful themes to celebrate these joyful moments.
Symphony Events are well aware of the specific responsibilities for the Haldi ceremony. We understand that controlling the number of attendees for this private event is very important, as the Haldi ceremony is hosted only for close relatives and friends. Setting up space with the yellow colour theme, usually an outdoor one at the home of the couple, according to the number of guests covers a significant part of our service.
Haldi Indian Wedding Process
The Haldi program takes place one or two days prior to the wedding. A dollop of fresh turmeric paste is applied on the face, hands, legs, and neck of both the bride and groom using mango leaves. Once done, the mood of Haldi night changes into a playful one, where those who were applying the Haldi paste apply it to each other. This gives way to the ceremonial bath at the end, to cleanse the bride and groom.
We also arrange various activities and fun games to make the event a sweet highlight in your memories. Our Haldi menu is simple but rich in variety; beverages cover a greater of the list. Ring us for more details about the Haldi function planning; let’s make the bliss of yellow reflect in your smiles too.
Why is Haldi Ritual so Auspicious?
Hindus consider the colour yellow as auspicious as per the traditions and rituals. They believe that when this paste is applied on the bride and the groom before they begin their lifelong journey together, it will bring them prosperity and good luck. Added to that, Haldi keeps away Buri Nazar, better known as evil eye and hence the ritual is performed to ward off evil eyes.
Significance of Haldi Celebration
Apart from brightening the skin of the couples, there is a science behind why a Haldi ceremony is hosted. Curcumin in Haldi is an antidepressant that eases the anxiousness and stress that the couples face prior to the wedding. The significance and science behind the Haldi ceremony seem to be never-ending.
Haldi Look For Bride
If you’re after an outfit which is comfortable to wear, contemporary yet traditional, then what’s a better option than donning an Anarkali suit? Accentuate your outfit with some mogra and rose jewellery, earrings, maang tikka and floral bangles.
Sharara, better known as Gharara, is an outfit that you can never go wrong with. But make sure that you pick a yellow or gold-based shade that goes well with the colour scheme of the Haldi function. The golden hue ensemble can either be with minimalistic or plain embroidery because the shade pops during the entire day. Complete your Haldi ceremony bridal look with some floral maang tikka, choker, earrings, and a haath phool.
Nail your Haldi ceremony bridal look with a saree. With innumerable styles to try out to drape, a saree is a front-runner as a Haldi night dress. But make sure that you don’t let the pallu down. Pleat it in folds, neatly and secure them on your blouse with a matchy-matchy brooch. Play around a little when it comes to picking the blouse-it can be an off-shoulder one or a backless blouse.
Haldi Look For Groom
For a happy go lucky groom, this outfit is your best bet. Since it’s your day, the Haldi night dress should go well with the colour scheme and make you look and feel elegant and handsome, donning a yellow sherwani and pajama with embroidery is all you need to make your style quotient strong as that of the bride. Pair it up with a yellow jacket as well.
If you wish to own your Haldi ceremony with a stunning and head-turning look, then an elegant Bandhgala is what you need. You will not just look your best, the outfit will truly make you shine out. You can even add a touch of colour to your well-tailored bandhgala with a colourful pocket scarf.
Nail a traditional yet trendy look with the staple Indian wear, which you can wear for any occasion- the basic kurta pyjama. Accentuate your outfit with embroidered jutti shoes that lend a classic vibe to your haldi night pictures.
