When tradition marries opulence

The MARWAR issue of Jan-February 2018 had a very well written cover story on marriage rituals. They were kind enough to let eSamskriti share the story.  

Author Benaifer wrote, "The extravagance, élan, and elaborate detailing of a Marwari wedding is like none other. It’s like transporting yourself to a fairy-tale land, or reading from the pages of royal history. Traditional rituals and customs are at the heart of a Marwari wedding, which surrounded by unbridled fun and festivity make for a grand spectacle indeed."  

This article covers Pre-wedding rituals, Wedding day rituals and Post-wedding rituals.
