Engagement Ring Decoration Thali

Engagement Ring Thali Decoration
An Indian wedding comprises of a large number of functions, which start with the Engagement and followed by tilak, sangeet and, mehendi, and end with the D-day ceremony and reception. J
Engagement ceremony is almost celebrated in the same manner in almost all the religions except for certain variations according to their community and family rituals. The family and relative of bride and groom gather to celebrate the first formal party of the forth coming wedding ceremony. A formal ring ceremony is done to solemnize the engagement ceremony.
Engagement is an important ceremony, as it marks the beginning of the relationship not only between two individuals, but also between also two families. Different kinds of decorations can be seen in different parties, depending on the budget and the chosen theme. However, flowers and artifacts find a special place among the decorations used for the engagement parties, irrespective of the theme. The colorful decorations set the perfect ambience for celebrations and boosts up the party spirits within everybody. If you want to make your engagement party the most memorable one, then decorate the Engagement Ring Thali in a unique style that reflects your perception about beautifying the event.

Different Kinds of Engagement Ceremonies in India
  • In Gujarati customs, the engagement function is called Sagaai. In a Sagaai, the bride's family arrives with ‘Matli', a steel container full of sweets and gifts for the groom and his family.

  • In Christians, the engagement ceremony is very much like a social gathering and formal announcement of marriage where the would-be groom and bride exchange engagement rings.

  • In most of the North Indian states, the ceremony is held as soon as the marriage details are finalized. Along with the ring ceremony, the ritual of ‘Tilak' i.e. greeting the groom with auspicious vermilion paste and rice is performed by bride's brother. Then the exchange of baskets of fruits, dry fruits and sweets takes place between both the families. The bride is also gifted with some traditional family Jewelry from the groom's parents.

  • In the South Indian families, the engagement ceremony is quite different from those of North Indian families; you will be surprised to know that the presence of the groom and bride is not compulsory on the engagement function. The engagement ceremony in South India is more like a commitment between both the families of the would-be bride and groom. The most important ritual in the south Indian engagement function is the exchange of 'tattu' i.e. 'engagement plate' which consists of coconut, flowers, turmeric, beetle nuts and beetle leaves.
