  • Asian weddings can extend for up to three days with a range of different ceremonies. Your invitation will explain to you which one you are invited to.
  • Misri takes place a few days before the actual wedding – the couple exchange prayers, flower garlands and gold rings and the groom’s parents present the bride with a basket of gifts.
  • The Mehendi ceremony takes place one day before the wedding and this occasion is for women only. Here they paint intricate patterns in Henna on their hands and feet.
  • All the guests dress in bright and vibrant colours.
  • The mother of the bride will usually give gifts to the groom as he arrives for the ceremony, traditionally sweets are also offered for goodwill.
  • The men in the party will exchange flower garlands.
  • The actual wedding day can last up to fourteen hours
  • The wedding ceremony will last for one to two hours.
  • There will be lots of theatrical and Bollywood style dancing.
