Telugu weddings like every other wedding are quite special. Telugu people live in the southern part of India mainly in the state of Andhra Pradesh. These days’ people are scattered all the ways in India and thus you will find Telugu people everywhere. In olden times the wedding ceremony for Telugus would be quite long. There would be functions for 16 days. Now due to lack of time people have reduced this time up to 5 days.
Pledges by bride and groom
A wedding ceremony is considered as quite auspicious and on this day both the bride and the groom take pledges. These are seven pledges and would include the oath to be together always. The bride and groom have to move around the sacred fire and this is what we call as saat pheras.
Marriages in temple
Telugu weddings are taken up at a temple. The wedding is conducted in presence of God. But these days the number of people has increased and so because there are many invitees and due to lack of space the marriages are conducted outside the temple. Both bride and groom should wear the traditional wedding dress. Groom wears lungi and the top and bride has to wear the Saree. There should be amazing jewelry to be worn with the Saree. But since the girls have turned out to be modern they don’t want to wear that very heavy gold jewelry. Thus, they want to wear some different and unique jewelry pieces.
