Pre Wedding Ceremony in Kerala
As per traditional Hindu culture, Kerala wedding also starts with the exchange of horoscopes by the parents of the boy and the girl. If the horoscope matches, an auspicious date of the marriage is then finalized in consultation with the astrologers. The day before the wedding, after receiving blessings, the groom must dine with the elders of his family and relatives. The bride, too, observes the same ritual in her own house. The bride is seated facing the east, and has a traditional five-course vegetarian meal with her family.

Day of marriage
The marriage takes place during the day. On the day of marriage and before proceeding to the venue of the wedding, the groom first visits a temple and seeks his parents' and elders' blessings.

Kerala Wedding Ceremony
The Groom arrives at the bride's house in a traditional "dhoti" and "angavastram". He is seated in a northwestern room where the bride's father washes the groom's feet and welcomes him. The groom then gives him the off white sari that has to be worn by the bride for the nuptials.

Kerala Wedding Process
The the nuptial ceremony is performed around the "agni" (fire). The bride and the groom circle the sacred fire thrice, after which the bride's father ties the "Taali", which is strung on a yellow thread around the neck of the bride. Thereafter the bride's father gives her hand to the groom in a ceremony called "Kanyadaanam". After the Kanyadaanam, the groom sits in front of the bride and tilts his head backwards, to touch her forehead. After this the girl offers puffed rice to the fire to the chant of various mantras. Her palms are placed in her husband's hands and she performs the "hom". After this, the groom lifts the bride's foot and places it on the grinding stone signifying breaking of her ties from her old family. The groom then moves the bride's foot forward seven times with his hand symbolizing her entry into his family.

Post Wedding Ceremony in Kerala
After the wedding a feast is arranged and thereafter the bride leaves for her husband's home. The vidai from the place of wedding takes place at an appointed time, according to the muhoortam. The bride, after receiving aashirwadam or blessings of the parents and the elders present, takes her leave. "Grihapravesh" ceremony is performed at her new home to welcome her arrival.

Groom's House
The first event at the groom's house after marriage is called Kudiveypu or making a new home/family. At the threshold of the groom's home, aarthi of the couple with deep (lamp) is performed. While entering the house, the bride first places her right foot into it. She holds a traditional lamp in her hand while entering the house. Ganpathi pooja is now performed. The bride then boils milk in the kitchen to herald her inclusion in her new family.

This is how Kerala wedding ceremony takes place. The venue like picturesque backwaters, ethical temples, scrumptious beaches add grace to Kerala wedding ceremony.
