Of course I love wedding, much more if that is my wedding. I love to see the future husband and wife exchanging I do's. I love church wedding , the flowers , the birds, the throwing of bouquet. The exchanging of promises. I also love the souvenirs.I really keep it as it is a simple remembrance from the nuptials, it only means their simple thanks to you to be a part of their special day.

I love weddings! They are the most beautiful day of someones lives. Everyone just looks so happy at weddings. I just wish people would remember the days they got married and remember how happy they were. Too many divorces these days!

I think some weddings are really nice and interesting but, then again I think some weddings are just crazy and they sometimes make me uncomfortable. I hate sitting through really sappy shows of affection between some couples. Some couples insist on singing songs to each other and that would be fine if they were actually good at it! Otherwise, some weddings are great, others, not so much.

Weddings are terrific, as long as I do not have any responsibility with preparing it. I had fun when each of my kids married, but in the future I think I would prefer to help with a friend's kid getting married.

I do felt the glow of the weddings, whenever l join any of it. I also felt happy to see how two lovers at last able to join as a couple.

I went to a wedding yesterday, and I find the ceremony was special as versus the previous ones. Although containing the normal procedures, it entails lots of personalized features. With video of their photos in the past, recording their growing up and love. The speeches expresses parents' wishes, and the young couple's gratitude to the parents. Western elements are incorporated, such as handing out the bride by the father, and throwing the flower ring to find the follower. And the couple even sing a love song to express their joy... and lastly gifts, from candies to toys are sent to the guests, etc. The wedding is grand in a 5 star hotel restaurant, but in a light and friendly atmosphere.

My sister and niece - My sister and niece on my niece's wedding day.
I do love weddings Mom I really do. My nephew is getting married in July and whilst I am invited he is getting married in Rhodes, it would be too expensive to go as a family I couldn't manage to travel without David and Niall to help so it isn't going to happen, they are having a reception when they get home though and I will get to see the dvd of the service! My niece got married a couple of years ago, just days before my surgery and I am posting a picture of her with my sister!(her mum) Hope you have a great day!xxxx

Weddings are a really awsome way for a couple in love to present themselves to the world. I like the unique weddings as opposed to the traditional ones. I love the weddings where the personalities of those getting married really shine through for all the world to see.

in my country i went to many weddings .as i am indian, in india we find many cultures and so different types of weddings. no other country has many types of weddings ,than india. everyone enjoys a lot in a marriage ceremony in india and many programmes will be there in now a days marriages. many relatives and friends are invited. the grooms and brides status will be looked ,by inviting as many number of guests they have invited . generally in brides house or in temple or in a marriage hall , the marriage will be taken place. and all the expenses will be beared by the bride's father. Hindu weddings are very bright events, filled with ritual and celebration, that continue for several days. They are not small affairs, often with 400-1000 people attending (many of whom are unknown to the bride and groom). Though most marriages are arranged, some couples in urban areas have love marriages. The true Indian wedding is about two families getting wedded socially with much less emphasis on the individuals involved. Wedding traditions vary across religion, caste, ethnicity, language, region, etc. Traditional Indian weddings are generally structured into pre-wedding ceremonies, wedding day ceremonies (consisting of the Baraat, the Varmala and the Phere), and the Vidaai. An example of the complexity of an Indian wedding can be seen from the various phases of a wedding in the North. The following events take place in a typical Eastern Uttar Pradesh Hindu marriage: Eastern/North Indian weddings usually take place late in the night, often starting at about midnight and lasting until the early hours of morning. The main wedding event usually is accompanied by the groom arriving with his family/friends in a procession called a Baraat (baa-raat.) Because the wedding ceremony is usually accompanied by a reception and a feast, the main marriage ceremony has been split into two parts. Varmala+Reception and then the more ritualistic part involving a priest. Many times the bridal party will be led on horseback or horse-drawn-carriage, and the groom will ride on horseback. Wedding , ritualistic part involving a priest.Immediately after the groom has arrived with the Baraat, the groom and bride meet and exchange garlands in the Jaimala ceremony. Once this ceremony has finished, the well wishers congratulate the groom and the bride and present gifts to them. Food is served during this ceremony, and pretty much everyone except closest relatives leave once the ceremony has finished. The main part of the wedding starts after the Jaimala ceremony has finished. The groom and the bride sit beside the fire and the priest chants shlokas (hymns) and the groom and the bride exchange vows in front of many gods and goddesses. Towards the end of the marriage ceremony, a ritual called Phere (pronounced: Fair-ey, meaning "revolutions") is performed. In the Phere ritual, a part of the groom's attire and the bride's attire are tied together (symbolizing that they are now united) as they go around the ceremonial fire seven times. Each round about the fire symbolizes a part of life. The bride leads in first three rounds symbolizing that the earlier part of marriage is led by the bride. The groom leads in the last four rounds symbolizing that the later part of life will be led by him. Sometime during the ceremony, the groom puts a little sindoor (red powder) in the parting of the bride's hair and puts a mangalsutra (necklace) around her neck. These tasks symbolize that she is now a married woman, as all married Hindu women are supposed to wear sindoor in the parting of their hair for the rest of their married lives. above information is from source :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_wedding there will lot more fun in the indian marraige .try to see any indian marriage in u;r area or in u;r friends circle.then u can know about the marraiges of india.
