There is a tradition in Punjabi weddings (which has now virtually being taken up by all north Indian weddings) that the bride is brought to the mandap under a pholon walli chaddar (a flower bedsheet) which is basically flowers weaved together and than tied in a frame to resemble a bedsheet.. It just looks lovely to see the bride walking under it the chaddar being held by the loving and proud brothers. And now a days the custom has extended itself to engagements too because of the sheer sweetness of it
So here is the shot of the chaddar kept in the side before it was put to use along with a vase…
Awww that’s such a sweet custom.. Didn’t know of it, as I’ve never been to a Punjabi wedding 🙂
Awww that’s so pretty!
Can I get someone hold it for me for our 5th wedding anniversary 😉 😉
its beautiful… 🙂
I guess the age old custom of having a phulkari which was traditionaly a bedsheet hand embroided by the bride herself has given way to this cause modern brides dont have time to do it. It use to be called a BAAGH usuaaly red in colour. My mum had a few which she had from her mum and she gave to my sis.. And so on
That’s pretty…. 🙂 I love punjabi weddings…. Esp the chuda that the bride gets to wear… 🙂
Gorgeous! It must feel special, walking under such a lovely chaddar.
So dreamy! 😛
I’d never heard of it before. Nice custom!
