12 Indian Wedding Superstitions That We Need To Get Over Asap!

Dark Mehndi

This one’s pretty popular. The darker your wedding mehndi is, the more your husband will love you. In my opinion, your husband gotta love you 100% whether your mehndi is dark, light or medium. But if you really want to know, here’s how you can get super-dark mehndi.


Dark Mehndi

Lehenga Lending

What? I thought being generous was a good thing. Well, apparently not because if you lend your wedding lehenga to someone, it’s bad luck for you. Oh, but it’s good luck for them.

Lehenga Lending

Rain on the Wedding Day

Apparently, if there’s a downpour on the day of your wedding, irrespective of how it dampens your mood, your decor and your lehenga, the rest of your married life will be blissful.

Rain on the Wedding Day

Self-Designed Wedding Outfits

Designing your own wedding dress is apparently not a good thing and is considered unlucky. Hmmm… I wonder what Sabyasachi would wear.

Self-Designed Wedding Outfits

Spilt Milk

No point crying over spilt milk? Think again. According to this Indian superstition, boiled milk spilling over in the house of the bride or groom will bring misfortune to them.

Spilt Milk

Sputtering Candles

If lit candles start sputtering on your wedding day, there’s an evil spirit nearby.
Nope, not the wind. It’s an evil spirit. Shhhh, trust me.

Sputtering Candles

Kaleerein Showering

Another popular one that takes place in every Punjabi wedding! The bride is supposed to kind of place her hands over the heads of unmarried girls and shake them If the kaleerein falls on someone’s head, she’ll be the one to get married next. Kinda similar to tossing the bouquet in Christian weddings.

Kaleerein Showering

Lentil/Chana Dal Balls

A week before the wedding, the bride-to-be and 7 married women make chana-dal balls and send it over to the groom’s house. This is a sign to ensure that his kitchen remains full all the time. Omgg sexist much?

Lentil/Chana Dal Balls

Carrying a Knife

Especially in Punjabi tradition, from the engagement to wedding, brides-to-be carry a knife / kirpan to be protected from evil spirits.

Carrying a Knife

Silver Dishes

In some traditions, the bride is asked to pick up a set of 7 silver dishes from the floor. The more noise the dishes make, the more the couple will fight.
Then why pick up the dishes in the first place?!

Silver Dishes

Right Foot First

It is supposedly unlucky if the bride crosses the threshold of her new house with her left foot so she has to place her right foot first.
This is an insult to lefties worldwide.

Right Foot First

Same-Lettered Surnames

If your husband’s surname starts with the same letter as yours, it’s considered unlucky. But ‘Kareena Kapoor Khan’ sounds so cool. 🙁

Same-Lettered Surnames
 

Some international ones:

Something old, new, borrowed and blue: the bride carries/wears something old to represent her past, something new to represent her new future, something borrowed from a happily married friend so their good fortune rubs off on her and something blue for fidelity and love.

Tossing the bouquet: The bride tosses a bouquet backwards and the one to catch it supposedly will get married next.

Some international ones:

Writing your name with the groom’s surname before the wedding takes place is unlucky. Damn, no wonder I didn’t get married to Shahid Kapoor.

Wearing a veil: disguise yourself from evil spirits who are jealous of you.

A spider in your wedding dress: Finding a spider in your wedding dress is supposedly a good omen. What, are you marrying Peter Parker?

Some international ones:

Crying is good: crying on your wedding day symbolizes that you’ve already shed your tears and shed any more after that day. Didn’t realise there was a cap on tears per person but okay, just make sure your mascara is waterproof.

So what do you think of all these Indian wedding superstitions? Let us know!

7 Cool Ways To Have An Eco-Friendly Indian Wedding

Wedding Invitations

SO much paper is wasted with every wedding invitation which is useless once the wedding is over. Now that it is 2017, let’s go with E-invites over the numerous online handles that we have.
Try using plantable paper if you really want to send tactile invites. (Plantable paper is biodegradable and embedded with seeds, so when you plant it in soil, the seeds grow while the paper decomposes.)


Wedding Invitations
 

Cloth decor

Avoid the strings and strings of gendha-phool decor that every Indian wedding has. Use cloth decor instead like colourful drapes hung in nice ways!

Cloth decor
 

Jaimalas

Instead of using floral jaimalas, you can go for jaimala made with organic/recycled paper flowers.
Cloth is also another option. This couple used satin jaimalas for their eco-friendly wedding:

Jaimalas
 

Fruit-based Centrepieces

Centrepieces usually are made of large flower installations that are then just thrown away after the wedding. People even use ice-sculptures – what a waste of water!  We’ve seen a few weddings that went with fruit-based centrepieces which could be eaten and not wasted:

Edible Cutlery

Instead of using plastic spoons/forks, opt for edible cutlery ( yes, you can eat the spoon too after your meal). They’re usually made from wheat/rice/etc or even chocolate for desserts. You can also get them in flavours.
Find edible cutlery here.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Favours

This couple printed their thank-you notes on plantable paper. How cool is that?  
You can also give out potted plants as a wedding favour.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Favours

If you realllly want to go the extra mile, you can stick to using only vegan/ non-dairy products like:
> vegan ice-cream or cake
> Dry fruits/nuts instead of milk-based mithais

Check out this couple who had a totally eco-friendly, vegan Indian wedding. Yes, they pulled it off brilliantly!
