Are you looking for fabulous Indian Wedding Dresses?

Different cultures have very diverse traditions and styles for weddings. Many Hindi marriages are arranged by their parents and the selection is based upon their children's qualities, social status and education.

In India, today's Hindi weddings are lavishly celebrated by family and friends having between 500 and 1,000 guests.

In the United States, Indian ceremonies and feasts are smaller affairs, with the number of guests ranging from 200 to 500.

Notice the above picture of the beautiful bride in her red sari with her magnificent green veil.

Most Indian Brides wear lots of stunning jewelry that coordinates with their dress.

The bridal dress is a very important part of the wedding with the bride choosing to wear a red or white dress for her ceremony and then any color is permissible for her reception. In Indian weddings, the color red is closely aligned with prosperity, good fortune and well being.

Some brides have their dress custom made by a tailor or family member while other brides purchase a readymade dress from a store.

(Having a store bought dress is more common in the U. S.)

Indian brides usually shop for their dress along with their mothers and future husband if he is available to go looking for a dress.

This is quite different from the American custom where a groom doesn't get to see his bride's dress until their wedding day when the bride begins her walk down the aisle.
