The fourth and last party before my wedding was my favourite.
We combined the chunni (scarf) ceremony and the chura (bangle) ceremony into one party which felt very special and ceremonial, like an extension of the wedding day. First I was showered with gifts, clothing, food and family heirlooms from my husband’s family then had my eyes covered while two arm loads of bangles were dipped in water with milk and rose petals then placed on my arms. Usually I don’t like people dressing me or feeding me food, but I had so much appreciation for my new family that it was nothing but fun!
Stay tuned for photos from the big day, then I promise I’ll stop wedding spamming everyone!
