    MARRIAGE AS DONE IN ANDHRA PRADESH

    1. The parents of the groom do the Vigneswara Pooja and punyahavaachanam first. Then they tie the raksha to the groom and do the Samavarthanam (as described earlier). The groom gets ready for Kaasi Yaathrai.

    2. The bride does Sri Gowri pooja and gets ready to come to the altar.

    3. The groom goes for Kaasi Yathrai. The bride's brother requests the groom to take the hands of his sister in marriage and settle in life, instead of going to Kaasi (Banaras or Varanasi). Sweet (or jaggery) is then given to the groom.

    4. The groom is then invited to come to the altar.

    5. At the altar, a screen is placed in front of the groom and the bride is brought on the other side of the altar.

    6. A small portion of a powdered mixture of cumin seeds and jaggery on a small leaf is placed on the heads of the bride and the groom. The priest recites a manthraa called "Choornikai" and removes the screen between the couple.

    7. Kannikaadhaanam - giving the bride away. (as described earlier)

    8. Madhubarkham - The bride is given the Muhurtha Saree (the wedding dress).

    9. Maangalya Dhaaranam - When the bride comes back in the wedding dress (muhurtha saree), maangalya dhaaranam is done.

    10. Sapthapadhi - as described earlier

    11. Akshadaaropanam - The couple are seated facing each other and a bowl of rice (uncooked) is placed between them. The groom puts some rice on the bride's head three times reciting three manthraas. Then the couple alternately put the rice on each other's head till the bowl is empty.

    12. A small game - The couple are seated facing each other as before and a bowl of water is placed between them. A ring or a conch is put in the water. The couple are then asked to take out the object. This is played three times. Some believe that if the ring/conch is picked up by the bride first, then the couple's first baby will be a girl. If it is picked up by the groom first then their first born will be a boy.

    13. Arundhadhi seeing - as described earlier.

    14. Mangal
    a Aarthi.

    Re: hindu

    I want to includes that the importance of wedding in Hindu rituals:-
    A wedding is a ceremony ritual by which two people vow to spend their lives together in marriage. It is basically a celebration of love and partnership, a wedding also have legal or religious significance. Wedding is the opportunity for the couple to honor and thank to their friends and family for supporting them. Wedding is a celebration or it is the simplest way of decorating, performing actual marriage rituals and making the families and the bride and groom familiar with each other.

    Parasakthi and sumathisrini like this.
