Tamil wedding rituals
Satkaar.com is pleased to provide an insight to these traditions...
The Tamilians believe in a simple living and their wedding ceremony reflects the same. The whole process is completed within two days in presence of family and friends from nearby as well as distant places. Tamil wedding rituals are usually held in the first half of the year from the month of February to June as the other months are considered inauspicious.
Tamil weddings rituals without playing instruments like Naathaswaram and the Melam are incomplete. The Tamil marriages are accompanied
with pre-wedding, wedding and post-wedding rituals. Pre-wedding rituals includes
customs like Karappu, Sumangali Prarthanai, Kalyanapillai, Nandi Devata Pooja,
Navgraha Pooja and Vritham and many more.
The bride’s father washes the feet of the groom on their arrival. Bride sits on the lap of her father and offers a coconut to the groom. This signifies the acceptance of the bride by the groom. She is presented with a sari from groom’s parents. The bride then sits in the lap of her father on the heap of paddy signifying to welcome prosperity. The groom ties the mangalsutra and they take seven rounds around the fire which marks the end of the Tamil wedding ritual.
