      The Mark of Haldi On Indian Weddings 

      In the land of spices and traditions, the Haldi ceremony at an Indian wedding is everything you’d expect it to be—fun and entertaining, where people have an all-around fabulous time. As flavorful as Haldi is as a spice, the Haldi wedding ceremony is more. Rich with color and meaning, the ceremony blends the auspicious with the modern so that everyone attending has a ‘dhamaka’ time.

      What is the significance of the Haldi ceremony? 

      According to Indian culture, Haldi, the popular kitchen spice, possesses anti-inflammatory powers and antiseptic properties that heal and purify. This is why it is also commonly used as a beauty product and an antiseptic. And also why is it part of the wedding ceremony.

      The Haldi ceremony, or Pithi, as it is sometimes called, is a pre-wedding event and kickstarts the wedding festivities. The Haldi ceremony is held simultaneously at both the bride’s and bridegroom’s homes. During this time, friends, relatives, and well-wishers of the bride and groom smear Haldi or turmeric paste on them to grant the soon-to-be-wed couple blessings of prosperity. The spice is said to cleanse and purify the bride and groom and rid the couple of ‘Nazar,’ or an evil spirit. According to tradition, the couple is housebound after the Haldi ceremony to avoid evil spirits and help them prepare for the wedding day.

      On this, the first day of the wedding celebrations, family and friends, even those who have traveled far to attend the wedding, get together to toast and roast the couple. The ceremony is typically held in the morning and is filled with fun, songs, finger food, rituals, and fashion. Even though it is a messy ceremony, everyone comes dressed in their summery best.  

      The Haldi ritual 

      Haldi or turmeric is often used in powder form in our kitchens. For this ceremony, however, Haldi needs to be in paste form so it can be easily applied. The ceremonial Haldi paste is made from turmeric powder or Haldi, milk, and sandalwood powder. Sometimes, the Haldi paste is made using rose water instead of milk.

      Typically only a small circle of people close to the family and the couple are invited to a Haldi ceremony. These friends, relatives, and well-wishers use mango leaves to apply the Haldi paste to the couple’s body parts, namely the arm, face, neck, hands, knees, and feet. While each one takes turns smearing the couple with this paste, the rest of the family sings traditional songs of joy and happiness, wishing the couple well. The paste is also applied to unmarried members as it is believed that Haldi ensures they will find good-looking partners. 

      Haldi fashion for the bride 

      Everyone traditionally wears yellow-colored outfits for a Haldi ceremony, including the bride, groom, and attendees. Today, brides have a broader spectrum of colors they can play with for their outfits. In keeping with tradition, most brides wear shades of white or yellow, but some also experiment with pista greens, baby pinks, and other pastel shades.

      The bride can wear what she is comfortable in—from sarees, lehengas, gowns, salwar suits, Anarkali dresses, or palazzo pants. While these Haldi outfits are likely to get dirtied with the color yellow from the Haldi paste, the bride still wears new outfits that look stunning. The Haldi attire is usually lighter than the rest of the bridal trousseau but will have embroidery and embellishments that make her sparkle and shine during the ceremony.

      At Koskii, we dress our brides in Chanderi silk and zari work, or georgette with zari work, threadwork, pearls, sequins, and more. While all forms of silks and georgette are highly requested, net material, organza, crepe, and other types of material are also available in our store. Buying a Haldi bridal outfit online is easy as you will have access to a wide range of styles, cuts, colors, and embroidery that you can choose while sitting in the comfort of your home.

      Haldi outfits for a bride’s mother 

      Next to the bride, the Haldi outfits that her mother or sisters wear are enormously important. While most women prefer to wear sarees, an ultra-casual Haldi ceremony needs nothing more than palazzo pants with a Kurti or an Anarkali dress.
