Our idea of a typical western style wedding revolves around frothy white dresses, tons of flowers, and cute flower girls. Subtle and elegant, western-style weddings are a vision in monochrome, but the scenario is a little different as far as western-style weddings in India. Although the basic essence of the rituals is the same as that of a traditional western style wedding, a host of ethnic Indian rituals has impacted almost all communities throughout the country. They are a fascinating blend of the minimal Hollywood style western style wedding we see in the movies with adherence to pre and post-wedding rituals that are essentially very Indian. Right from the wedding attires to the bridal jewelry, western-style weddings are quite distinct from what we imagine.
