    Default Weddings in the South

    Andhra Vaishnava

    The most important aspect in marriages in the Andhra Vaishnava Brahmin community is the 'matching of horoscopes', although the family background and tradition are also looked into. It is essential that the 'gothrams' (ancestral lineages) of both the families are different. If originating from the same 'gothram', the bride and groom are not eligible for marriage. Their relationship instead becomes that of a brother and sister!

    In Andhra weddings it is important that the 'rishis' (sages) too must have different names. The 'rishis' were the celestial beings from whom the human race is believed to have originated. There were seven 'rishis' in all.
    The weddings are performed by 'purohits' or 'pujaris' (Brahmin priests) in the presence of the God of Fire or 'Agni Devta'. The 'pujari' chants Vedic mantras while conducting the marriage in all solemnity.

    TELENGANA ANDHRA REDDY
    The Reddys or Reddis, also known as 'Kapus' belong to a Telugu speaking community, split into several subsections.
    Those of them who have settled in different southern states like Karnataka and Tamil Nadu for several generations have adapted their rituals and ceremonies to suit the local customs, so slight variations will be apparent in the sequence of events in a marriage.
    The marriage rituals begin with a promise made by both families to each other that a wedding will be solemnized. After consultations with an astrologer, an auspicious day and time are fixed for the marriage ceremony and both the concerned parties draw up written contracts. These contracts are then placed in yellow cloth bundles along with betel leaf, turmeric, nuts and fruits and blessed by an officiating 'pujari'.

    Yes, it is true akka..I too did the same..First thali during main muhurtham with pasupu soaked dress and later, say after 2 or 3 hours, nagavalli thali will be tied..ofcourse that time normal pattu dresses allowed.One more interesting news, in AP, most of the marriages are conducted in midnight only! It is funny to see most of the audiance half slept during mangalya thaaranam!

    Yeah, I had attended a friend's wedding (when in college) in the wee hours.... but we all managed to stay awake because it was a celebrity wedding
    Dream is not what you see in your sleep; is the thing which does not let you sleep

    As per our traditions, brahma muhurthams are fixed normally between 23:00 hrs to 02:00 hrs.Another interesting(?!) aspect of our marriage is a lecture given by an elder after mangalya tharanam.in some communities (brahmins).On many occasions I observed even bride and groom were sleeping during this lecture session.The elder used to advice in general about married life and how the new couple live in the grahasthasramam..
