Well, after 4 months I guess I’ll finally get around to posting some photos from our Indian Wedding (from Last November 2016)
My mom was really the mastermind behind this entire Indian Wedding. Since I’m an only child, she has dreamt about this day since I was about 5 years old-not even kidding. So, when Ty and I announced our engagement in December of 2015, we had to reign her in from too much excitement because she was ready to bring the ENTIRE Raj-Singh clan over to America for June of 2016. Thankfully, when she realized her entire family couldn’t come to America (for financial purposes, visa reasons, and other various reasons) Ty and I compromised and promised her we would allow her to plan our second wedding in India (she seemed pretty happy with that compromise, and it literally helped save so much $$$$$$$$$$ which made EVERYONE happy).
Since Ty and I couldn’t take off an entire month for this wedding extravaganza in India, my mom somewhat managed to plan 5 days of wedding events into 2 FULL days. (Of course we didn’t sleep, who needs sleep when you are in India? AND who can sleep when you have the most extroverted family in Northern India?)
This portion of #DollyTysTheKnot in India is our Haldi Ceremony.
A little bit of background of what a Haldi Ceremony is
The haldi ceremony is the one in which a paste of haldi is applied on the bride and the groom’s body before their wedding. This ceremony is held at both the bride and the groom’s place, on the morning of the wedding day. In a few cultures, this ceremony is also held a day before the wedding (which we did).
(Enjoy! And if you have any questions feel free to ask me the significance of something! I am Indian after all….even though a lot of people don’t believe it) 🙂
