Answer

THE CEREMONY There are lots of different elements which might be included in Hindu wedding ceremonies. These are usually traditions which have been passed down through generations. A couple might include some parts but not others, however there are some elements which are usually part of the ceremony. In particular, the journeys and arrivals of both the bride and groom are celebrated with prayers, singing & dancing, obviously. During the ceremony, in the center of the mandap, a fire is kindled. Both the bride and groom circle this fire pit seven times to signify seven specific blessings they want from the gods. The bride and groom both repeat the prayers spoken by the priest. These are promises to be humble and faithful to God and each other.
