Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never been to an Indian wedding before. What should I expect?

Traditionally, Indian weddings tend to be large and span over a couple of days. Although each region of India has its own specific customs, the general concept is the same – it’ll be a Big Fat Indian Wedding, filled with vibrant colors, music, and plenty of food and dancing. Although family members and close friends may have a role, the remainder of the guests are invited to sit back and enjoy.

What should I wear?

There are several different types of Indian outfits, and there no specific requirements for what types of outfits should be worn to which events. In addition, guests are certainly not expected to wear Indian attire. For the Garba-Raas and Wedding Ceremony, we encourage guests to wear outfits that are bright and bold – and don’t be afraid to accessorize. The dress code for the Reception will be formal evening attire. For more information and suggestions regarding event attire, see the Wedding page.

What kind of food will there be?

We often say that the best part of an Indian wedding is the food. There will be a wide variety of dishes with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options at each of the events. The food will be served buffet style, so that guests will have the option to choose what they’d like to eat. Please let us know if you have any food restrictions or allergies.

What about wedding gifts? Do you have a wedding registry?

During this special moment in our lives, your presence at our wedding is more than enough to make our day. If you would like to honor us with a gift, we are kindly requesting no boxed gifts, which is a familiar Indian wedding custom. Because of our work schedules, we'll be moving around over the next year or two, and have not created a registry, as we are trying to minimize our belongings. Any monetary gifts you’d like to contribute will be greatly appreciated and we hope to use these gifts to furnish our home in the future. If you would like to make an online gift click here.
