Indian weddings are filled with ritual and celebration that continue for several days. Generally anywhere between 200 to 5000 people attend. Many of the attendees are unknown to the bride and groom themselves. The traditional Indian wedding is about two families being brought together socially, with as much emphasis placed on the families coming closer as the married couple. Many wedding customs are common among Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and even Muslims. They combine local, religious and family traditions. The period of Hindu marriage ceremonies dates from the application (lagan) of tilak.
Indian weddings are a mainstay in the social calendar of the whole community. Many wedding traditions that originated in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh carried over to immigrant populations. Increasingly, Western features are incorporated, such as speeches, the first dance and the traditional wedding cake. Indian weddings are typically lavish - which costs a lot to the family.
