Muslim Wedding Ceremony Rituals

We on the earth, follow different traditions and customs as per our religion and the geographical location. But there is one custom which is same for every religion i.e. wedding. Though the rituals for wedding are different for different religion but the emotions behind this are same. If we talk specifically about Muslim wedding, it is considered as a kind of social contract.

Muslim Wedding card

Nikaah is purely based on the holy book of Muslims called ‘Quran’ which states every minute about the contract. What I like best about the Nikaah Contract is the clause of adding the point of your wish by the bride and the groom. There are many clauses in the contract of the Nikaah but the most important out of these is Mahr in which the groom agrees to accept all the responsibilities of the bride and this Mahr has its symbolic meaning. This is not just a simple gift from the groom to the bride; it can be in the form of a kind or cash. But it is not compulsory to present it at the time of wedding but it depends on the flexibility of the future bride which allows her to take that at the time of divorce or the death of the husband. In Muslim wedding, there is free will (named as Ijab) by the bride and the groom stating the acceptance (Kabul) of entering into the scared bond of marriage.

This contract of nikaah is written by both the families i.e. the bride and the groom and along with them two witness. This whole process is done in front of Qazi who is appointed by the court and his presence is very important for the legal wedding.  After all this, “ Aqd Nikaah” (wedding contract) is announced publically.

With all these formalities, wedding sermon is also essential and to present the sermon for this scared bond you need your relatives and family members. Muslim wedding cards , here come into play for inviting your relatives and friends. While reading sermon it is required for the guest to acknowledge their presence in the wedding. Before starting the sermon, praises are said on the name of Allah and we ask him to offer guidance to the couple.

This all about the Muslim wedding traditions. Hope this help you to understand the nuptials of the Nikaah.

Brides Should Be Thankful To…………..

“There is always something to be thankful for “Especially when you are a bride. While planning your wedding there is always a time when you feel stressed out and you need a break. This is the time when you are supposed to sit and think about those who really helping you out in making your wedding a success. In this whole period of planning, there must be some occasion when someone’s help make you relaxed a lot. So why not to thanks all those people who want your wedding to be the best pal for you.

Thankful

“Your Mom” She is the one who is always there with you in each and every part of the preparation. Whether is it’s about searching your best man or about your wedding gown or about searching perfect wedding card , you will find her close to you.  Even the times when you really need someone, she must be the one. You can ask this feeling of loneliness with the brides who are not that lucky enough to have their mother.  And this is the perfect time to make her feel, how important and thankful you are.

“Your bridesmaids” Sometimes during your planning phase, you end up with the argument with your groom and you really want someone to discuss this about bridesmaids are the one. Bridesmaids are the one who helps you out in each and every part of your planning in one or the other way, they are the one who gives your bridal shower party, one who take you to the bachelorette party and is ready to do want everything on your wish. You should thank them for loving you despite all your flaws.

“Your best man“ He might not the one you want to thank as of now but later in your life you will definitely feel overwhelmed about having him in your life. As after your wedding, there might be times when you are heavy hearted and his kind words help you in getting relaxed. What changes he can make in your life, there is no one else. So you have to be obliged to him for being part of your life.

thankyou2

“Your Guest” Lastly your guest as without them all your celebration is nothing. You will feel something missing factor during your marriage without guests. It is the only guest for whom you do all the preparations and of course they took time for you from their busy schedules. That’s the reason it’s your responsibility to appreciate each and every guest of yours.

Sometimes, your thankful nature not only makes other happy but makes you feel more happier. It is just because of this word which I call “magical”.

India is colorful as you will find every possible culture flourishing here. Seriously I have never seen a country like this where there are so many cultures around. This country is not just about a single religion but, it is a perfect blend of religions.

When the country is so colorful with all such religions, just imagine how beautiful is the wedding rituals are going to be. I must say this is going to be a chromatic one. So far what I have seen about the nuptials, I have just one word to describe it “kaleidoscopic”. In the marriages here, you will find each and every form of communication of emotions.

In the wedding, starting from the very first ceremony to the last ceremony, you will find color from happiness to sadness. Let’s see what all shades, we have in the Indian nuptials and how they make your wedlock versatile and vibrant one. So starting with:

Roka: Also known as Tilak Ceremony. This is the custom, where bride’s father puts auspicious Tilak on the forehead of the Groom and gives coconut and some gifts to the groom and his family as to convey that this wedding is fixed or you can say they just lock it. And this is how the very first ritual takes place for the wedding. I will give this a color Green (color to Go-ahead). Thereafter you will find n number of different nuptials but here we are going to discuss only a few of them.

Sangeet Sandhya: You can call this as musical night also. For this occasion, both the family prepares some dance numbers. On the event day you will find, both the family busy in pulling each other legs with the help of the songs on which they perform. But trust me, they do it with high spirit and don’t consider it otherwise. I am going to give this event a color Yellow (color of happiness).

Mehndi: Mehndi is the ceremony where the Bride family put Haldi Paste on the bride’s face, hands and legs and thereafter they puts mehndi on her hands and legs. This is considered to be sacred tradition. And same is done at groom’s side. It is also believed that darker the color of mehndi, the most loving partner you will get. Not only the bride and groom put mehndi but each and every family member especially female put heena. So what color should I give to this occasion? Orange (color benign warmth of sun)

Wedding and reception: In matrimony ceremony, you will find both the family busy in doing all the customs, all those seven vows in front of fire. Along with this, bride and groom play various sorts of games, it is just for fun but have some traditional significance also. All this is followed by reception where all the elder members of the family give their blessing to the couple. And at last, they have a ritual called vidai. Here you will find tears in the eyes of bride family as she is going to leave her father’s house and will start her new journey. So here, in this last stage of wedding, you will find all seven colors of rainbow and their significance also set appropriately with Indian marriage.

Butterflies are so beautiful that you can’t resist yourself, staring them. The most important thing about these butterflies are their vibrant color and moreover they are not the same. There are so many different spices of them. For me these are the beautiful spices on the earth and a perfect example of camouflaging. And if they are so chromatic and chic, just imagine how a wedding will look like with a butterfly theme.

butterfly invites

  • Wedding invitation and stationaries: butterflies are chromatic that you can choose any color for your invitations or can go for multicolor option also. But will suggest you  to go with white color and that then at the front can get butterfly stick which give it a 3D effect and at the same time will give it a royal look. Along with this you can go for laser cut invites and stationaries for your wedding. Laser cut wedding invitations are in trend these days.

  • Wedding attire for bride/ groom ad accessories: it’s very important for the bride and the groom to get design their attire that goes with the theme of the wedding. It is easy for the bride to incorporate the wedding theme but it is difficult for the groom to do it. So for bride I will advise to have plain gown with butterfly accessories like footwear’s, head gear, bracelets etc. And for the groom i will ask him to take use of broach and tie with the matching theme.
  • Wedding décor: According to me wedding décor is another important thing to work on your wedding theme success. Starting with the dining table, here you can use a decent center piece with the butterflies, even the towels can be rolled and tied with the ribbon and at the top you can place a beautiful butterfly. Even you can make some artificial tree and with the help of that you can tie the colorful butterfly and get it hang on the tree. This tree you can get it place at the center of the banquet hall.

Destination is one thing for which ball is in your court. So let’s discuss on some features which you can incorporate with your wedding destination to make it a real success.

wedding invite

The foremost thing which you need to care about after deciding the location is to start search for the nearby hotels for your accommodations. Or if you have opted, the Historic hotels for your wedding then, you can make arrangements for the accommodation over there. But if you are planning for intimate family wedding and not a lavish affair, you can book rooms to some nearby hotels.

If with the historical wedding destination you are planning to give your wedding a vintage touch, you can make bride and groom entry and departure in a historic ways. Even you can go for traditional food, served in traditional way. Bride and groom can be dressed up in traditional costume to give it a classy look.

Or you can go for fusion option, where you can amalgamate vintage and voguish touch altogether. But need to be careful in doing so as sometimes it ends up in a ruin. To make this theme a perfect, you need to do it in a way that it will look modern but traditional as well. If we talk about costumes, give it a fusion touch. Or if we talk about food, you can serve the modern food in a traditional way or vise-verse.

Sometimes Historical destinations come out to be a costlier affair and it just snatches everything from your pocket. To keep yourself on safer side you need to do prior planning for your dream wedding. If food cost and arrangement cost is on higher scale, you can ask the hotel authorities for giving you permission for hiring some caterer from the outside which fits your pocket well.
