Hindu and christian dating
At the actual wedding, Hindu brides wear bright colored outfits.
A red sari or lengha, is usually what the bride wears, she may even choose to wear more than one outfit.
In southern India, a married woman may wear a necklace with a distinctive pendant called a thali and silver toe-rings.
Both are put on her by the husband during the wedding ceremony.
Also the man and woman are given a chance to talk and understand each other.Once there is an agreement then an auspicious time is chosen for the wedding to take place.In recent years, with the onset of dating culture in India, arranged marriages have seen a marginal decrease, with prospective brides and grooms preferring to choose a spouse on their own and not necessarily only the one whom their parents find agreeable; this has been more pronounced in urban and suburban areas than rural regions.In certain poor vaishnav communities there is still a custom called kanthi-badal which is an exchange of bead-garlands as a very simplified form of ritual in solitude in front of an idol of Krishna, considered a form of acceptable love marriage.Elopement has also been described in old Hindu literature.
