Let me ask you this, what is that first thing comes in your mind when you think of North Indian weddings ? For me it’s larger than life decorations, the lights, flowers, the sumptuous food buffets, lovely colorful couture, the bride and of course the band baja and barat.
However not all North Indian weddings are similar infact there are more traditions that you can imagine from village to village, town to town and state to state everything starts changing.
With Movies and TV making a huge influence few of the trends more common than others. After this movie “Hum Aapke hain kaun” , Every girl wanted to steal groom’s jootis. It still happens doesn’t it.
Being a South Indian but brought up in North Indian I can say one thing – It’s an absolute fun to be part of North Indian weddings. You show what you got , you got what you show ! People save money all their lives to squander money on these weddings and it’s crazy in a beautiful way.
