An Indian wedding is a big and grand affair. It is not a celebration for a day, rather the celebration continues for days. There are many pre-wedding rituals and post-wedding rituals that happen before and after the wedding. Haldi ceremony is one such pre-wedding ritual that demands good food, fun and amazing dresses. It is one of the cherished rituals in the Indian wedding. It is believed that if the bride and groom apply haldi/turmeric before the wedding, it will cleanse and purify their skin and body.
Haldi or the turmeric paste that is applied to the bride and the groom, eliminates all the dead skin cells and cleanses the body properly and helps in enhancing the beauty. Therefore, this ritual is celebrated with much pomp and show. It is performed on the morning of the wedding when all the married women apply the mixture of turmeric, oil and water to the bride and groom and bless them for a blissful matrimony. Since, the ritual is celebrated in a grandeur manner, you will find all the women wearing amazing Indian dresses, such as sarees, Indian suits, lehengas and so on.
What to wear to your Haldi Ceremony:-
Generally, the dress code of this ceremony is either yellow or other bright colours such as pink, green or any other vibrant colour with floral prints. There are two reasons for this, the first is that the ritual is celebrated in the morning, mostly under the sun that demands everything to be bright and vibrant. Secondly, since the turmeric is yellow in colour, so the dress code is either yellow or something bright that coordinates with it. Different types of Indian dresses, such as, yellow lehenga, yellow Anarkali, yellow salwar kameez, yellow saree and so on are worn in this function. You can easily get them either from an online store or from an offline store.
