Indian Wedding Tips: What We Should Not Do In Indian Weddings?

Laavanya Hien |Jun 29, 2019

Indian wedding has its expensive and unecessary sides that should be avoided. Here are a number of things people should stop doing in Indian marriage ceremonies.

Let’s remind yourself of a video which had made the internet go wild last year. That clip showed one Indian bride dancing to the tunes of a popular song titled Cheap Thrills. Moreover, it also depicts how a bride prepared for her joyful ceremony from what she was about to dress and how she got together with her beloved bridesmaid.

Since then, it has become a trend that other brides also started to groove to popular songs on their big day. It’s quite exciting to see one bride do this on her wedding; however, it’s irritating repetitive if it happened more frequent.

It goes without saying that an Indian wedding is full of sounds and colors with multiple interesting things you can learn from. However, do you know that it also has its expensive and unnecessary sides that should be avoided? Here are a number of things people should stop doing in Indian marriage ceremonies.

Gold and a lot of gold

Gold has become an indispensable part in most Indian marriages. There are millions of weddings in India every year and all of them have one thing in common - it’s gold and plenty of gold. Last year, a bride had been in the news because she was covered in a lot of gold jewelry, which was surprisingly estimated up to 50 kilos.

Could you guess how these gold would be used after their marriage? Obviously, it is said to be kept in the locker room as Indian people have a strong belief that saving gold will help to cover possible unpredictable future expenses.

But, storing gold, in fact, is not the only way to invest money, instead, there are many other better ways to earn and invest money than depending on gold only.

Food leftovers in Indian weddings

While every Indian wedding is now filled with banquets, there is an increase in the number of people throughout the country who can’t even afford an adequate meal daily. And this situation - in which one is overwhelmed by a variety of foods from different cuisines; whereas, others don’t have enough food to eat every day - has become more prevalent than ever.

A single person is not able to taste every dish offered by a banquet; hence, it’s no surprise that the leftovers will definitely get wasted. It’s a piece of good news that people at the contemporary time know how to distribute these leftovers to those who need. But, how to avoid wasting foods at weddings is still a problem of much concern.

Extravagant gifts

It’s common for brides to be showered with the dowry in their marriage ceremonies. However, loads of Indian families, especially families of the brides often give them expensive and extravagant gifts such as high-priced honeymoon tickets, apartments, and cars.

Because not many people could afford such luxurious things, don’t copy this if you don’t have enough financial conditions.

Myriad receptions

Indian weddings have changed a lot with more than one reception recently. We only witness celebrities’ weddings which throw myriad receptions for their guest. However, many other people within the country have now also hosted no less than two receptions.

Let’s take marriages in Assam as an example. The bride’s family usually arranges a reception for the bride’s guest to take part in the event and another reception is hosted by the groom’s family after the wedding to invite guests from his side.

With such many receptions, the newlyweds will feel exhausted during and post weddings. Moreover, it also costs the two families a considerable amount of money to organize more than one reception like that.
