@juliana192:  Have a blast!  The ceremonies are very colorful and very fun, the party afterward is a blast.  If you have a sensitive stomach or are not used to Indian cooking I’d recommend being prepared with some tums or other medications.

Haha saris are a menace to put on but they look great if done properly. Don’t be surprised if no one is paying attention to the bride and groom btw. It happens. When I took my Chinese/Caucasian FI to his first Indian wedding he was appalled that not many people were paying attention to the ceremony lol.

Have fun! Indian weddings always look so beautiful and colorful and fun. I’ve never been, but the pictures I see on here are usually stunning.

I’ve only been to one Indian wedding – the biggest surprise for me was how none of the family stayed seated during the ceremony. Even the ones who weren’t part of the ceremony were right in front, taking pictures and talking. (I had to laugh – one of the photographers was not Indian and looked very frustrated!)

It was an awesome ceremony, though, and some of the best Indian food I’ve ever had.

You have nothing to worry about!  Indian people are some of the most embracing people I’ve met.  You’ll love wearing a sari too! 

You may have to remove your shoes during the ceremony.

Expect to wait – “Indian time” is a real thing, and yes, no one pays attention to the bride & groom!

It’ll be loud, chilled out, full of laughter and colour and LOTS of good food! Don’t get stressed out, as long as you are mingling in with people and talking to them, it’s all good
