    Wonderful, beautiful people!
    They are all this beautiful over in your country, aren't they?
    ALL of them!
    And the saris! Wow! That bridal sari is just -- smashing!

    heheh thanks corinna :)
    well she was wearing a 'lehenga' ... it looks like a 'sari' from the pic.. but it is a skirt and a top and the 'dupatta' - the embellished scarf covering her head
    outfits like that may be custom made or bought off the shelf and can take anywhere between 3 weeks to 4 months to make.. since most of them involve a lot of handwork
    thanks for looking

    Mansi,

    Great pics! I noticed that they have nose rings in different nostrils. I was just wondering...is there any cultural significance to which side of your nose you pierce? (I mean this in a seriously interested way--no goofing).

    Thanks for the cultural (perhaps) lesson.

    Oh, and I agree...all Indian women are HOT!!! (OK, so I had a crush on 2 or 3...but please, nobody tell the Girl. She can get jealous sometimes.).

    Thanks for sharing this Indian tradition with us, Mansi! I had no clue! I've been to a Pakistanian-American wedding here, in states, but it was nothing close to your ritual! Beautiful photos.

    thanks guys! :D :D :D

    umm usually its the left nostril piercing which is a tradition.. but off late.. it goes everywhere.. right or left(eg.. the gal on the right has it the traditional way).. and also it was a tradition before that girls had their ears pierced when they were very young.. some even as babies

    lol think again Jo Cose! :lol: :mrgreen:

    thanks for looking :)

    Very, very interesting. Thanks for the cultural lesson. Will you field yet another question? Is the dowry tradition still observed?
