Welcome to our new identity. Welcome to WeddingBazaar!

Indian weddings promise a lot of fun, music, food, laughter, and an overall good time but what we miss out on is how different regions in the country have amazingly unique rituals full of meaning and love. One such is the Talambralu ceremony, common to Telugu weddings in South India. Pronounces as Thalambraalu, this ceremony symbolises showering your partner with love, happiness, and prosperity. The bride and groom, exchange garlands and shower each other with rice and pearls mixed with saffron and turmeric.

It is a deeply symbolic ritual for it denotes the offerings of love and happiness that the marriage would bring into their lives. It is also a heartwarming ceremony full of laughter because there is a lot of room for mischief by the newly wedded pair! Indeed it often turns into a hilarious competition between the bride and groom, and after the pair is done, the guests also join in and shower their blessings with flower petals.

We have bookmarked some of the most beautiful moments captured during the Talambralu ceremony. Take a look!
