Step by Step

This post was written by Bhasmank Mehta, Posted on 3rd September 2016,Updated on 12th September 2016

Here is the order of any given Sanatan (Hindu) Wedding Ceremony conducted by your very own Sanatan Hindu Priest, Bhasmank Mehta. It is possible that due to regional differences, one or more of the activities may be excluded or even added. If excluded, no problem, you get to know what you are missing out on. However, if an addition is required because such activity is not listed herein, do please inform me so I can add it as appropriate.

If I am making this addition described above, if you can, do please let me have an indication of its true chronological place along with any applicable reasons or theories you may hold. This is because, later on, I will be explaining each and every step in detail along with its purpose. So, without further ado, here is the list for a given Sanatan Hindu Wedding (Lagna) Ceremony:
