South Indians weddings are fun! No matter what they say…….

The South VS North is a never ending battle for the first place. Even so that its now taken over weddings. For ages we’ve been hearing the weddings in the north of India are more fun and has all the yummyness. Here is a list of the the awesome things the South has to offer…..

  1.  Fun traditional ceremonies : –

a) Oonjal/Swing Ceremony – This a  custom in Tam-Bhram Weddings. The couple are made to sit on the “Oonjal” or swing which is rocked gently. The swing’s oscillating motion is a message to the couple that they must stay strong together during the challenges and joys of life. Relatives and friends sing auspicious songs, blessing the couple. They are offered milk and bananas and the ladies from both the families throw coloured rice balls in four directions to ward off evil spirits. This ritual also signifies support of that family and friends during the couple’s married life.
