  • Before the application of henna, dried fruits and drinks are served to the guests and this special tray with candles is prepared by the family of the bride.

  • The bride wears a special dress called bindall and sits on a chair in the middle of the circle made by young women.

  • One of the young women starts to turn around the bride while singing a special song and the others follow her with candles on their hands.

  • The henna is applied into the brides hand and a piece of gold is given as a gift by the groom.

  • The bride ties a cloth and wears authentic gloves.She never shows her face till the end of the night.

  • Then the night goes on with a special song telling that its very difficult for a girl to leave her mother and to live far away from her own house.The brides usually cries because getting married is a very important milestone for a girl.
