Marriage is the beginning of life long commitment. The day of marriage thereby becomes utmost important for both the partners as well as their family. The event of marriage just doesn’t begin and end with only one event; there are many starting from mehendi and haldi to marriage and reception. There can be many more events like bachelorette parties, post wedding traditional pooja events and more. Every event has its own importance and significance and haldi is also one among them.
What is Haldi Ceremony?
Haldi ia a hindi word which means turmeric. The ceremony is a customary practice before marriage, wherein both the bride and groom are applied tumeric paste on their face and body. The practice is to ensure clear skin for both bride and groom since haldi is considered to have medical benefits and antibacterial capabilities. Additionally, it is also believed that the couple will be free from injuries or illnesses before the wedding. The haldi mixture used in the ceremony is known by different names in different regions, like ubtan, mandha, tel baan etc.
Until recently, there was nothing particular as haldi jewellery and the bride would just adorn any minimal jewellery on that day since the jewellery could also get soaked with haldi paste while applying. But in the recent times, it has become a fad to have special floral or shell or pearl jewellery exclusively for haldi to match with yellow outfits most of the time.
This special haldi jewellery gives a unique look for the bride which makes her look more traditional and beautiful. While most of the brides have started opting for haldi jewellery for the event, there are few who ditch the jewellery for their haldi.
