About Karnataka Matrimony

Karnataka is a state in the southern part of India. Originally formed in 1956 and known as the state of Mysore, it was renamed Karnataka in 1973. It is the seventh largest state by area and eighth most populous state in India. Kannada is the most widely spoken and official language of the state.

The Kannada wedding spans over three main days which includes a range of different ceremonies. The prewedding rituals include the Naandi ceremony which is performed by both the bride and the groom in their respective houses in order to ensure the marriage takes place without any interruptions. Just before the groom leaves for the bride's village, all the items for the wedding are placed in front of Lord Ganesha to seek his blessings. This is called Dev Karya ceremony. The evening before the wedding, the main ritual is Mandap Puja, according to which the mandap and the hall where the wedding is to be conducted are purified. After this the bride's father worships the groom by washing his feet. This is known as Var Puja. This is followed by bride's entry to the mandap. Here, they exchange garlands on the chant of holy mantras. After this, both the bride and the groom are applied turmeric paste.

On the day of the wedding, first is the Kashi Yatre ceremony which is an interesting ritual, where the groom pretends to be leaving for Kashi as he is devoid of a suitable bride. The father of the bride stops him and requests him to come back and marry his daughter. The groom agrees and comes back to the hall to get married. Next is the Dhare custom, where the bride's parents give away their daughter to the groom, by placing a coconut and betel over their hands and pouring holy water. The groom then ties the mangalsutra (holy thread) around the bride's neck which signifies that they are now officially married. After this, Saptapadi ceremony is held where the married couple takes seven rounds around the sacred fire and take vows that they will be with each other for seven lives.

After the wedding, the bride is welcomed by her in-laws into her marital home. A vessel filled with rice is kept at the entrance of the house and she is asked to knock it inside the house, with her right foot to signify her bringing in prosperity with her to her new house. After this, the bride enters the house and this is called Griha Pravesh. After this is the name change ceremony, in which the groom decides a name for his wife and inscribes it with a ring on a plate, containing rice.

On the day after the wedding, the bride's parents visit the newlywed couple and take them home to stay with them for a few days. Later the groom's family go and pick up the newlyweds and take them home. The groom’s side of the family then organize a grand lunch as a gesture of saying thank you to the bride’s family for conducting the wedding and also introduce the bride to the rest of the family. This is called the Bheegara Outhana and this ceremony concludes the wedding.
