Haldi Ceremony/ PelliKoduku or PelliKuthuru Ceremony

It’s another important pre wedding ritual in which a paste of haldi is applied on the bride and the groom by the family members and friends. It is also known as Pithi ceremony. This is predominantly celebrated at both the bride and the groom’s place. As international marriages are increasing these days, many couples have started enjoying this colorful day together. This day is full of traditional songs and dances; and as a consequence considered a great way of relieving wedding day jitters.

In Telugu weddings of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, it is known as PelliKuthuru and PelliKoduku, making of the bride and groom. It’s very similar to North Indian Haldi ritual. In this, they smear turmeric paste mixed with oil on bride and groom. It’s a way of preparing the couple for their wedding day. PelliKuthuru is a traditional ceremony for Telugu bride and PelliKoduku is a traditional ceremony for Telugu groom. 

In Orissa, the haldi ceremony is known as Mangan. We have travelled all over India to cover the colorful haldi ceremony – be it north, south, east or west. As a result, we have realised that even though the names are little different from each other, the beautiful tradition of applying turmeric remains the same.

Pre and post wedding rituals of Indian weddings are as beautiful as the main day itself. These are very colorful and vibrant functions which can give you some of the most memorable pictures of your life. That’s why we advise never to skip these functions from being photographed.
