CHOOSE WEDDING THEME ACCORDING TO MUSLIM RELIGION
India, one of the most religiously and ethnically diverse countries in the world, is home to a variety of wedding rituals that range from elegant and sophisticated to exquisitely detailed. The idea that entire families and communities are involved when an Indian couple marries contributes to the intricacy.
Indian weddings are customarily multi-day events that include numerous elaborate rituals, such as the mehndi, or hand and foot painting of the bride. Instead of corsages, garlands are given to guests of honor, and a lot of flower or rose petals are scattered for luck.
Whether an Arabic wedding is simple or spectacular, its décor and design demand a competent staff that is well-versed in all facets of culture and wedding traditions. You can be sure that your wedding décor will be in reliable and knowledgeable hands because we have years of wedding experience.
With more than 1.6 billion followers, Islam is one of the most well-known religions in the world. The Holy Quran commands Muslims to perform weddings as one of their main obligations, and they are an essential aspect of Islamic culture. It allows a Muslim to pass down and spread Islam to his family and subsequent generations. Even though Muslim wedding customs vary considerably between nations and locations, the fundamentals of the "Nikah" ceremony remain the same. More than 172 million people in India participate in traditional Islamic wedding rites, which are a distinctive fusion of Islamic tradition and adaptation of pre-existing traditions from the multicultural Indian subcontinent.
Muslim weddings conjure up images of vibrant and joyful ceremonies, the aroma of slow-cooked biryani filling the air, and of course, Nawabi grandeur. But in Islam, a wedding is much more than just a party! It is a deeply spiritual occasion! The next part of the Wedding Tradition Series, which examines the intricate aspects of Muslim wedding customs, is here. It is a kaleidoscopic guide to various regional cultures, covering rituals, customs, fashion, and more.
As more people from other cultures and even nations get married, they all want their weddings to be a memorable occasion for both them and their guests. Planning a new celebration can be stressful, whether you are the bride or groom planning your wedding or a guest invited to a friend's big day. This series on wedding customs aims to address all of your inquiries on ceremonies and their significance of them, as well as how to dress for various occasions and special features of the experience to enjoy while traveling across one culture at a time.
Indian Muslim marriages follow a similar pattern to all other Indian weddings in that several symbolic activities culminate in the Nikah. While customs may vary by the Islamic sect, gender-separate laws, and cultural beliefs, the marriage contract's signature at a Muslim wedding is unquestionable.
MANJHA & MEHNDI
Muslims observe the Manjha and Mehndi rituals prior to the bride and groom entering the aisle. With the Manjha ritual, sometimes referred to as the Uptan or the Mayon ceremony, friends and family cover the bride and groom in a paste consisting of Haldi, sandalwood, and rose water.
Following the Manjha ritual, the brides prepare for the mehndi ceremony, which is often held the day before the wedding and involves having their hands and feet decorated with beautiful and elaborate Arabic mehndi designs.
The bride or her family may request the Mahr, which is a required gift that the groom must provide to the bride. Most of the time, the bride chooses a fixed amount of cash. Other times, the bride might want anything she wants, including a trip and gold. She is of course urged to be reasonable and consider her prospective husband's money. The man's obligation to support and care for his wife is also symbolized by the mahr.
The bride and groom must be seated in distinct places for the perfect Muslim wedding. However, in modern Nikkahs, the bride and groom are seated directly across from one another, separated by a curtain that may be constructed of a net, flowers, or other thick fabric.
Rukhsat is the farewell ceremony where the bride says an emotional goodbye to her family, similar to the Vidaai ceremony in Hindu marriages. When she and her groom arrive at their new house, the bride's mother welcomes them and presents them with the Holy Quran to bless their new marriage.
The Walimah, the last event at a Muslim wedding, is a grand ceremonial reception that is held by the groom's family. The family and guests dress the couple in finery and shower them with gifts and blessings. Later in the evening, there are lavish celebrations and delectable food.

Home of the bride or groom
Some traditional Muslim couples choose to hold their Nikah celebration at the home of the bride or the groom, whichever is most convenient. When the bride is at her home, her parents plan the entire event. A few things happen, like the bride getting henna on her hands and feet as she mingles with her female family and friends.
In addition to ensuring that you adhere to all Muslim customs, being married at either of the bride and groom's homes is a powerful method for the families of the bride and groom to get closer and cement family bonds.
Gardens and Parks
A park or garden location is ideal for a Muslim wedding, particularly if it frequently hosts conferences and workshops. The surroundings offer a wonderful view of your photo shoot and a serene, relaxing atmosphere.
Additionally, this option is perfect for nations with temperate climates. An outdoor wedding is preferred when the county or state is normally humid.
If the couple wants to save money on décor, choosing this location can be a good idea because the flowers and vegetation there may be plentiful. Similarly, compared to other indoor venues, parks and gardens can hold more visitors. Some couples may even go as far as to host weddings on floating decks, which is a novel yet beautiful notion.
You and your partner should choose a wedding location that suits your preferences. In this manner, it aids in maximizing the occasion. You can decide whether to include your romantic exploits in the ceremony.
If you met, for example, in a university or college, it would be OK to have your wedding there because it is representative of how you met. This option is a great one because most educational institutions have spacious rooms that can easily handle a large number of visitors.
These locations would also be great options, particularly if the institution offers kitchen amenities that would facilitate the hired caterers' work and reduce the couple's expenses.
While some Muslim couples may always choose this location, the majority of Muslims in today's world are gradually moving away from this standard. The ceremony might be attended by some non-Muslim friends and family members, thus holding it at the mosque will prevent the majority of them from going. Everyone invited can attend when the wedding is held in a neutral venue because there are no restrictions.
However, the majority of mosques today provide economical wedding sites in addition to all other necessities. Additionally, they provide equipment and other logistics at affordable prices. Some even provide enticing packages based on how many people you invite.
If you get married in a mosque, you can be confident that the food served to your guests is Halal-certified and you can take advantage of the serene and holy atmosphere. Some mosques also reimburse booking expenses if a wedding is canceled.
NIKAH CEREMONY WEDDING ATTIRE
The holy Quran specifies a variety of dress codes that Muslim couples must follow when getting married. Modern couples, however, allow for some latitude when it comes to putting their best foot forward.
The majority of Muslim brides don elaborate sharara sets or Ghararas with long Kurtis. While brides traditionally wear green on their wedding day, today's brides are also seen experimenting with reds, pinks, and golds. In Muslim bridal clothing, gotta Patti embroidery and zari embroidery are also quite common.
Muslim bridal attire is incredibly well-known for its jewellery, with the Nath being a required component. One of a Muslim bride's most eye-catching jewellery pieces is the Passa or Jhoomar.
For the Nikah ceremony, Muslim grooms typically don kurta pajamas or kurtas with churidar. There are often no color restrictions, except black, which Muslims view as the color of sorrow. Typically, embroidered work of some kind is desired on the kurtas to give them a wedding-like air. Muslim grooms are increasingly inclined to combine churidar pajamas with a sherwani or any type of Indo-Western attire today. The Sherwanis are often expertly cut and embroidered. Many grooms today aren't afraid to wear western attire like suits or tuxedos. Before the baraat departs, the groom also dons a sehra.
The groom accessories his look with jewellry such as gold neck chains, finger rings, and even men's bracelets.
A feast in the truest meaning of the word, the meal at a Muslim wedding and reception features luscious meat dishes, aromatic rice dishes, decadent desserts, and much more. Of course, the globally adored Biryani is a good enough excuse to attend the wedding!
