This Traditional Indian Wedding Is Insanely Beautiful | World Wide Wed | Refinery29

1,4 M

On this World Wide Wed episode, best friends Sonya and Harsh come from two different regions of India, so when it came to their wedding, they combined the cultures of Harsh's southern region Andhra Pradesh and Sonya's northern Punjabi background. The resulting 72-hour celebration is the stuff of Bollywood dreams, starting with the Sangeet, a festive banquet-turned-talent show, and ending in an intimate, ornate ceremony. Watch as the bride and groom honor traditions (hint: there's no final kiss) with some modern flair.


Ever wonder why we get married the way we do? We decided to attend the weddings of 5 very different couples to understand culture and traditions around the globe. Stay tuned every Saturday at 11am for our new series World Wide Wed.
