Weddings in India are undoubtedly a big affair involving a lot of preparations from both the bride as well as the groom’s side. Marriage is like a contract between two people. A commitment where both the partners take vows to give each other lifelong happiness, care, and the validity that one needs in life. Marriages in India is not a one or two-day affair like it is in other countries. It usually lasts for at least a week or even more, depending on culture to culture.

We are particularly talking about south Indian marriage here in the article. There are about seven rituals performed in a south Indian wedding. South Indian weddings are indeed a long affair. Some of them such as the Telugu wedding can last for up to 16 days. About the clothing, almost every south Indian bride wears a Kanjeevaram saree on her big day along with gold bridal Jewelry. Now Haldi is one ritual that is performed widely in North Indian weddings. However, it is skipped in Tamil and Telugu weddings. Some people in the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka have started to incorporate the Haldi ceremony in their weddings.

Now, the south Indian bride wears something around her neck which is called the managa malai. It is an authentic part of South Indian jewelry. The Managa Mala is named after the fruit ‘Mango’ as the design around the neck looks like mango or the jewelry is mango-shaped.
