In 2020 (yes that’s right), we all made our way to India for my sister-in-law’s wedding. What a fascinating, beautiful country, filled with fun traditions. Here are a few highlights of the customs we were lucky enough to experience:
Color is important in India. Each has its own meaning–different than those we associate in the West. For example, a bride wears shades of red. Red is the color of the base chakra, which links us to Mother Earth.
In keeping with tradition, I incorporated as much color as I could into my wedding outfits. The Nikes I traveled halfway ’round the world with were bright purple.
Color is the soul of India, after all.
and bangles, lots of bangles
That’s all for now, but stay tuned.
