A Complicated Engagement

This beautiful Indian princess got engaged to be married this past weekend, and we were honored to be invited to their ceremony/party. It was quite the production, I must say!

The fiancee-to-be waited patiently upstairs in the bridal room while the guests watched her parents and the groom and his family “seal the deal” with an engagement ceremony. Her brother then escorted her down to meet with her beau and exchange rings. Traditionally, this is when the union of families is solemnized, and the bride and groom-to-be are introduced to each others’ families. There is exchange of gifts and blessings, and much celebration and dancing.

The center of activity looked like a Bollywood movie setup and Vanshika looked like a Bollywood princess! So lovely!

Wedding in two weeks. I can hardly wait. Stay tuned!
