Wedding Ceremony

South Asian wedding ceremonies usually are between 1 to 3 hours long. Wear comfortable shoes because you may be dancing to the venue with the groom's entourage before the ceremony begins.  Read More about Indian Wedding Ceremonies

What to wear: You can wear any moderate to heavily beaded ornamented outfit to the wedding ceremony, including a Sari, Lehenga, Indowestern, or Salwar Kameez. Usually the salwar kameez is worn by guests who are not very close to the bridegroom.
