Hindu Ceremony

Time: 9am - 10:30/11am
Muhurtham at 9:41am
Location: Texas Discovery Gardens - Grand Allee
Attire: Indian culture attire, Cocktail

During the Hindu wedding ceremony, we will perform a series of ceremonies to signify our families being united and what our future together will hold.

The Muhurtham is the auspicious time during which the marriage is official. A pujari, or Hindu priest, has determined the auspicious time based on when our stars align.

The full ceremony will be approximately 1.5-2 hrs, which is an abbreviated version.

Light refreshments will be available during the ceremony.

Suggested Attire:

Men: Kurtas, Sherwanis, Suits

Women: Sarees, Ankarlaris, Lehengas, Cocktail dresses

Lunch

Time: 10:30/11am - 1pm
Location: Texas Discovery Gardens - Grand Hall
Attire: Indian culture attire, Cocktail

Lunch will be provided after the ceremony. The meal will consist of vegetarian Indian food, as is Hindu tradition to not eat meat on auspicious days.

The lunch will not be a formal reception as we will have already had an Indian and a Western/American style reception, and we know many of our guests are traveling for the wedding and will need to get home. We appreciate everyone taking time out of their schedules to celebrate us!
