South Asian Ornamentation and Jewelry
Not only is the attire of South Asian weddings magnificent, but so are the accessories you’ll find. Wedding attire is filled with intricate embroidery, shimmering gold and silver thread, sequin, and beading.
We love the beautiful jewelry and accessories combining gold and silver with precious and semiprecious stone and detailed artisan detailing.
South Asian Henna Work
During the Mehndi Night, the bride’s hands, arms, and feet are decorated with her bridal mehndi, known as henna. The detailing and artistry are mind-blowing – especially knowing that bride will sit for hours while it is applied.
The Beauty of a Baraat
Guys are not left out of the beauty of South Asian weddings. Their clothing and accessories are as colorful as those of the bride.
One of the most beautiful events of a South Asian wedding is the Baraat. This procession happens in Hindu and Sikh weddings where the groom is led to the marriage venue.
He will often ride on a decorated white horse or luxury car accompanied by family members, groomsmen, and friends cheering and dancing to blasting exciting music. From the groom’s attire to the decorated horse, the details are beautiful and unique.
There are so many spectacular, detailed and touching parts of South Asian weddings. Each family, region, and religion have their specific traditions.
Understanding the elements of the wedding events and each custom’s significance is just part of what our Elegant Events team does when working with South Asian couples on their Philadelphia wedding.
We look forward to working with you to make your auspicious day a day to remember!
