Indian weddings have so much of culture and tradition. When now weddings are becoming more global there are certain traditions that still hold a special place in our heart. Especially those that involve blessing the bride and groom for #foreverhappiness. You would surely know that there is a rush of flowers thrown on the bride and groom during the ceremony blessing them. In Telugu weddings there is another exclusive blessing and more fun ritual that is called Talambralu.

This involves the bride and groom putting handfuls of sacred rice which is rice mixed with turmeric and flowers on each other as some mantras are recited. This is “oh so fun” and full planning is done to execute this perfectly. Check out these gorgeous shots of the Talambralu ritual.

If your culture does not let you pour rice mix it all up. Use rose petals or any flowers in baskets and make a competition out of it!!

History has it that lord Ram and Sita got married they showered baskets on pearls on each other during the Thalambarlu ritual and this is when Sita Devi looked up at Lord Ram and saw that the white pearls had a blue sheen that was reflecting off Lord Ram.

This ritual is another way of saying that we see the bride and groom as the god and goddess.
