Christian Wedding Ceremony

The church announces the name of the bride and the groom three weeks prior to the date of the marriage. Thus initiates a Christian Wedding. On the wedding day the church is decorated and a group of choir singers accompany the entire wedding proceedings.

A prayer is said in the respective houses of the bride and the groom with all the guests who have arrived, before they leave for the church. The bride's wedding dress is usually the traditional white gown or a brocade saree. The bride in her white veil is accompanied by two little girls holding flower baskets and her close friends. Whereas the groom comes in along with his "best man". 

The groom's family gifts a ring and a "mangalsutra" - the auspicious wedding dollar and a cross - to the bride. In the church the couple stand in front of the altar along with the Parish priest who is responsible for conducting the wedding. In the name of God the couple holding each other's right hand and take the oath of life-long loyalty to each other. Then the priest declares them "Man and Wife" after they exchange wedding rings. He also presents the couple with a "rosary" to solemnize the occasion. 

After the wedding a small reception is usually hosted where the couple cut the traditional wedding cake.
