Tanishq Wedding Jewellery

Every time there’s a wedding coming up, it’s very easy to tell because of the sheer excitement that’s spread across all the close family and friends. It’s even more exciting if you happen to be from the girl’s side because of all the outfit and jewellery shopping to you get to be a part of. I always try to do my bit by trying out all the clothes and jewellery…you know…so that the bride can get an idea of what the pieces will look like on a real body.

A girlfriend of mine recently shared with me that she will be getting married towards the end of this year and I cannot be happier for her! She being a Marwari and me being a Jat means that I am not completely aware of what all goes on in a Marwari Wedding. While most of the functions and rituals will be more or less similar, they usually have different names and slightly different ways of execution perhaps. Which is why I have already started doing my research on what exactly happens in a Marwari wedding. It’s great timing too since Tanishq has recently launched their wedding-jewellery specific collections and a website too. In their words “Hum har shaadi ke liye tayaar hain”. Because they have jewellery for all types of regional weddings. It was super easy for us to just visit the store and know exactly the kind of jewellery that would be required for the entire wedding. My friend and I have already paid a visit since she wanted to get a feel of the entire situation and start thinking of herself as the bride and let it all sink in. She was so excited about the whole visit. I also clicked some of the jewellery for a Marwari Wedding at the Tanishq store. Everything was so beautiful.

We visited the Tanishq flagship store in South Extension Part-I during her trip to Delhi. I tried on quite a few pieces from the Marwari Collection which I will share with you in the next post. I can’t wait for her next trip when she will hopefully start finalizing on what she wants for the wedding. In the meantime I will read up on the different rituals that take place in a Marwari Wedding because I’m that kind of a friend.

The moment someone talks of a Marwari Wedding, it is automatically understood to be an opulent affair. The Marwaris go all out on the extravagance factor be it regarding the decor, the food, the outfits or the jewellery. Some of the many pre-wedding rituals are:
The Sagai which is the engagement ceremony that usually does not include the bride. The bride’s brother performs a ‘tika’ ceremony on the groom.
The Ganapati Staphana is mainly a puja for peace and prosperity in both households where a Ganesha idol is also installed.
The Pithi Dastoor is the ‘haldi’ ceremony where a turmeric & sandalwood paste is applied to both the bride & the groom. Ladies sing traditional songs & the bride is usually dressed in a traditional yellow/orange dress.
Mehfils take place in the evening at both the household which involves making merry, dancing and singing in celebration.
The Mahira Dastoor is a ceremony where the the maternal uncle of the bride is welcomed by the mother of the bride and the uncle showers gifts such as clothes, jewellery and sweets for the entire family.
The Janev ceremony is where a sacred thread is given to the groom wearing which he has to perform a havan.
The Palla Dastoor is where the groom’s relatives carry the brides wedding outfit, jewellery and other gifts for her a day before the wedding.
The Nikasi ceremony is when the ‘Sehra’ or the headgear is finally tied for the groom, and some kajal is applied in his eyes to get him ready for the wedding ceremony.
