There are various rituals that go into a Punjabi wedding. Punjabi weddings are just not about the extravaganza but also the rituals and traditions that mean a lot to them. Punjabis are simple yet fun-loving people who believe in expressing their emotion with gusto. Similar to their nature, their weddings reflect their life philosophy. Punjabi weddings are colorful, loud, sometimes over the top, fun filled with lots of opportunities for singing and dancing one’s heart out. The weddings symbolise unlimited fun and celebrations that last for a week or more.
Roka, the first and the foremost wedding ceremony in a girl’s life is very special. For some, it is an arranged affair and for some, it is a love affair. But planning this big day becomes difficult. The bride’s family gifts the groom’s family a bunch of things, especially dry fruit and sweets, and vice versa. Be it the Indian bridal lehenga or an indo western dress, the girl dreams of looking the best in all her marriage ceremonies.
It is not as grand as a wedding function so one has to avoid an over the top look or an over-embellished outfit. Likewise, a zero makeup look or a casual outfit will also not be appreciated either. A balanced look is much needed for both bride and the groom.
We will recommend you some amazing and unique outfit ideas and designs so that you can rock your day. Check for bridal lehenga with price to get amazing deals and offers and enjoy the most for your important day.
