In Nepal, the wedding ceremony has a significant value in one’s life. We take it seriously. The wedding ceremony is usually a huge celebration with loud local musical instruments like Panchai Baja. As the marriage is supposed to last for a lifetime, it is a big deal here in Nepal. The marriage ceremony in Nepal emphasizes on mutual commitment towards each other.
Marriages take place during certain time of the year such as mid-January to mid-March, mid-April, to mid-June and mid-November to mid-December. Deciding a good time for the marriage is usually up to the astrologers of trust. The ceremony is held under a canopy referred as Mandap in the open, usually in front of a house. Or like that of modern days, in a party palace. The venue is decorated with lots of flowers and twinkling lights.
After arrival of both the parties at the venue, bride and bridegroom perform the Puja guided by the priest. Both of them will be dressed according to Nepalese traditional dresses with lots of jewelries. The priest solemnizes the marriage in accordance with the VEDAS, the holy scriptures of the Hindu religion from thousands of year ago. They take blessings from relatives, friends, and family members. The bride and bridegroom are escorted in and out of the venue in a decorated car or in horses in cases of villages. The traditional wedding in Nepal is exciting as well as overwhelming since there is a lot going on at the same time. It requires a lot of planning and bookings before the event.
