Our Hindu Wedding: Last Haldi

On the night before the wedding day, we had the last haldi (or 2 maybe?) to do. Above is a picture of me, still in my yellow sari (with the haldi from the morning all wiped off haha). I came down to meet Manni and the rest of Maxi’s family, who had just arrived at our place. Unfortunately, I still smelt of haldi and spices haha.
Here is Geli, Torsten and the rest of the family looking around the backyard at the wedding set up:

 

 

 

In the meantime, earlier, me and Deepi spent some considerable time getting our little Sharlene ready for the night. Here is me getting Sharlene ready:

 

 

 

Deepi did Sharlene’s hair beautifully. I’m sure Sharlene enjoyed the night and some extra attention 🙂

 

 

 

 

Then the last haldi began – I was brought downstairs again, and the haldi ceremony started for the final time. This time around though the guests all dressed up and it was a delight to see – all colours and happiness. I was the most under-dressed person there!!!

  1. nice post! Really they had given the true Indian culture. Am also a Indian in the Texas. I love to wear Indian sarees. I also traveled to many places like Tajmahal at Agra and famous hanuman chalisa lyrics and Hanuman Temples.
