Actors Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram tie the knot; know all about traditional Manipuri wedding customs

It's time for celebrations as actors Randeep Hooda and Lin Laishram tied the knot today, November 29 and we cannot keep calm. The first pictures and videos left fans mesmerised. Both Randeep and Lin looked gorgeous in traditional Manipuri attires. While the actor donned a white dhoti, kurta and turban, the bride Lin looked super-gorgeous in traditional Manipuri wedding attire. Wondering what a traditional Manipuri wedding looks like? Let's walk you through it!

The traditional outfits

While the groom keeps it lowkey and simple, Manipuri brides have a distinct attire, seen in no other community across the world. The bride wears a skirt called ‘Raslila’ on her wedding day. She puts on a red and black sarong which is known as Pindhan. The attire is completed with a blouse referred to as Silum.

Manipur is also known as the ‘land of jewels’ and Manipuri brides make sure to don some of the most precious and trendy jewellery, mostly in Gold.

Pre-wedding customs

The people of Manipur believe in celebrating the day with joy and fun. The wedding process begins with the 'Hinaba' ritual which marks the very first meeting of the parents from both sides. Another interesting pre-wedding ritual is the 'Yathang thanaga', where the bride's parents visit the groom's house for a final round of approval. The engagement ceremony is then held and it is known as 'Heijapot'.

Manipuri wedding rituals

A Meitei woman welcomes the groom and his family as the wedding begins. The entire ceremony is completed around the tulsi (basil) plant. Next the bride and groom exchange garlands and take seven circles around the basil plant. After this, two women, one from each side release a pair of taki fish into the water. This is followed by a mega-feast!

Post wedding rituals

The last custom of a Manipuri wedding is the 'Mangani Chakouba', which takes place 5 days after the wedding. The newlyweds first visit the bride's place where they indulge in a delicious feast.

Indian weddings are surely a sight to witness. We wish Randeep and Lin all the luck on their new journey!
