A Punjabi/Sikh Destination Wedding Timeline in Detail
Day 1 - Arrival and Welcome Dinner
The Punjabi/Sikh wedding festivities start with a warm, welcoming ambiance. As guests from near and far arrive at the venue, they're greeted with traditional garlands and refreshments. An informal welcome dinner follows, featuring local cuisines, and offers an opportunity for families and friends to bond before the wedding rollercoaster begins.
Day 2 - Roka and Sangeet
The Roka ceremony is a significant pre-wedding ritual, denoting the families' acceptance of the impending union. This informal, private event usually involves an exchange of gifts between families. The evening is livened up with the Sangeet, a spirited celebration characterized by folk music, exuberant bhangra dancing, and uninhibited joy - a signature of Punjabi festivities.
Day 3 - Mehendi and Ladies Sangeet
This day is marked by the Mehendi ceremony, where henna artists adorn the bride and other female attendees with intricate designs, symbolizing beauty, joy, and spiritual awakening. The Ladies Sangeet in the evening sees women from both families sing traditional Punjabi songs, play folk instruments, and share stories and advice with the bride-to-be.
Day 4 - Chooda and Kalire Ceremony
In the Chooda ceremony, the bride's maternal uncles place a set of red and ivory bangles on her wrists, symbolizing her transition into married life. Following this, the Kalire, umbrella-shaped trinkets, are tied to the bride's bangles by all the married women, a tradition thought to bring luck and prosperity to the couple.
Day 5 - Anand Karaj (Wedding Ceremony)
The Anand Karaj is the soul of the Sikh wedding. Conducted in the serene surroundings of a Gurudwara, the ceremony involves the couple making four rounds around the Guru Granth Sahib, each representing a cardinal virtue of love, respect, faith, and commitment. The couple's union is then solemnized amidst hymns and prayers.
Day 6 - Reception and Farewell Brunch
A grand reception marks the conclusion of the wedding festivities. Here, the newlyweds officially greet their guests as a couple for the first time. Punjabi beats, high-spirited dancing, and a sumptuous feast ensue. The following day, a farewell brunch gives guests a chance to reflect on the wedding's memorable moments and bid their adieus.
