The Haldi ceremony marks the start of the pre-wedding festivities and is an essential and auspicious ritual held at both the bride and groom’s place. Here, a paste prepared with turmeric (haldi), sandalwood and gram flour is applied on to the bride and groom. Turmeric is a natural exfoliant and leaves your skin fresh and glowing. The act of massaging haldi acts as a relaxant, and it has an antioxidant called curcumin which has calming properties. In addition to this, the bright yellow colour is associated with happiness and prosperity. Another important aspect is that here, the relatives and elders in the family bless the bride and groom as they start their new life.

Do It Together

Traditionally Haldi was celebrated separately at the bride and groom’s house, but now a lot of couples are opting for a combined ceremony. There is something beautiful and right about starting the pre-wedding festivities together. In addition to this, a joint event is cheaper, and you will also get some fantastic Haldi shots for the wedding album.

The Perfect Formula

The basic haldi mixture contains turmeric powder, gram flour and milk. It can be further enhanced by the addition of sandalwood and rose water. Be careful while adding rose water as an excessive quantity can make the mixture too runny.

Haldi Bath

In addition to applying Haldi, you can go all out and have a Haldi bath. Mix the paste with water and drench the bride and groom-to-be. Pouring water is both fun, and the turmeric water has a lot of antiseptic properties and is suitable for the skin and hair. You can use decorated pots for pouring the water, as they make for pretty photos.

Flower Shower

Flower shower adds fragrance to the already vibrant and colourful atmosphere. Shower the bride and groom with petals, marigold, or rose petals are an excellent choice for this. Alternatively, you can use flowers as part of the decor or add some petals into the water for the Haldi bath.

Venue Decor

The decor for the venue really sets the tone for the entire event. The traditional way is to use a lot of mogras and roses. You can even have signs created out of marigolds.

Photoshoot Ideas

Haldi is a hotspot for candids. There is something about splashing water and smearing paste on each other’s faces that brings out the child in each one of us. Often Haldi transforms into a mini Holi of sorts and what results is a lot of smiles, laughter, fun and colours. Usually, you get your most candid and original shots at Haldi, so make sure that you have your photographer ready.

A squad photo is a must. They will look great if you are all colour coordinated. You can choose to go all yellow. On the other hand, the bride can be in yellow and everyone else in a different colour or vice versa.
