Traditional Hindu Bengali Wedding

A traditional Bengali wedding is a 4-day affair with a series of rituals and ceremonies. Each of these colorful rituals not only adds fun to the wedding, each of it has a special meaning and symbolizes the beginning of a united life of the newlywed couples. All the friends and relatives gather during a wedding ceremony, which turns out a kind of family reunion.
A typical Bengali marriage ceremony is marked by blowing of conch shells, ululations of women, playing of shehenai (a musical instrument) at the backdrop, good food, and gorgeously dressed men and women.
