Delhi - Indian wedding, finally


View Around the world ın 8 months on chrisvasil's travel map.

We were very excited to be able to get invited into the wedding of a friend of my friend Asif's, and came back to Delhi for that. The day before the wedding we were invited into another wedding. As we were walking back home there seemed to be a commotion next door, and as we tried to see what it was the people out front pointed us inside. It was dying down (or just getting starting), all that was there was some guys dancing inside and the groom outside on a camel.

The next day was the real wedding, a hybrid between a North Indian groom and a South Indian bride. We had bought traditional Indian clothes for the occasion, and were all set. The wedding itself was actually more similar to a western wedding (and less Bollywood) than we were expecting, but still quite different - the ceremony lasted for over an hour with rice being thrown at intervals, and the dress was different.

On an unrelated note - here is a change of name notification (Lovely Jain changing her name to Preety Jain), and a cell phone ad at the ladies waiting room, wishing "bye bye STD" (STDs in India are like payphones, not like crabs).
