🕉 KAM'S WEDDING • DAY 1 🕉 || A couple days before a Hindu wedding, the bride and groom each organize a haldi ceremony at their respected homes. From this point until the time of the wedding, the couple should not see each nor should they leave the house. The haldi paste is made from turmeric, rose water, and sandalwood powder.
The paste is put on five places: the feet, knees, arms, hands, face. The paste serves as a cleanser for the body and soul and signifies the bride's preparation and welcoming into adult married life. The haldi in some Indian communities also signifies protection. Traditionally after the ceremony, the bride and groom are washed off by their own family members. The mixture is believed to bless the couple before the wedding ||
