Big-fat-Indian weddings are great but it’s high time we take inspiration from the west!

by Unik Dhandhi, Friday, February 02, 2018

There is no celebration as grand as a big-fat-Indian wedding, neither in India nor anywhere in the world. While the west follows a precise and single-ceremony wedding ritual, Indians love to show off their wealth and affection for the bride and groom by organizing a complete week of traditional ceremonies and celebrations.

Good meets better for the best!

Indians love their culture and so do I but it is high time that we take some inspiration from the western culture. From three-day wedding ceremony to unnecessary jewelry shopping, Indians have an exhausting way of getting married.

Well! Here are some things which Indians should learn from the western tradition of getting married:

Very own vows

In India before arranging for anything else, we book a Pandit for reciting the traditional prayer of marriage (We have a prayer for everything even for buying cars) and same-old traditional vows to the bride and groom. Boring! While in the western culture, bride and groom are free to recite their very own vows before getting married. Isn't it much better and relevant? I think it is.

Bride and Groom splits the expense

First of all, in the western culture there is only one wedding ceremony/reception and marry without much tantrums. Indians have a long list of rituals to do before the final ceremony which consists of three consecutive days of ceremony. In most of the cases in an Indian wedding, the bride's family is the one to pay for all the expenses. Isn't this Indian custom partial? I think the bride and groom should split the expenses equally, like in the western culture.


We all know about the dirty-concept of dowry system which was being followed by the Indian traditions but it is dead or is it? Maybe not completely but it should be for the sake of gender equality. We should surely learn this from the western culture as there is no dowry-system or give-&-take in their marriages.


Public display of affection is a taboo in India. It is like Indian's kryptonite. But isn't marriage about two people who are in love with each other and decide to accompany each other till the end? Then why are people so concerned about PDA? Learn to love from the West folks! The unbelievably romantic ritual of kissing the bride must also be followed here.

The above listed Western wedding rituals are some of many things which Indians should learn from the West. Stay tuned for more lifestyle related updates.
