Big fat Indian weddings are king-size celebrations for a couple embarking on the journey of holy matrimony. These celebrations last for days and consist of several fun-filled rituals and traditions that the bride, groom, and their close friends and family engage in. One of the most memorable and fun functions is the Haldi ceremony. The close friends and family members apply a paste of haldi (turmeric) on the face, neck, hands, and legs of the bride and the groom.
The significance of this tradition stands differently in different religions; however, it primarily lies in the colour, medicinal properties, and beliefs related to haldi. Some people believe that applying haldi before the wedding day keeps the evil eye away, some apply haldi considering the fact that it cleanses the skin and provides glowing, healthy skin for the wedding day; and some people consider it a symbol of blessing. Haldi is generally considered auspicious and is often associated with happiness, purity, and new beginnings.
