Hindu Wedding Resources

In August of 2013 my Buddhist fiance and I were married in a blended Hindu and Celtic ceremony. We also had a quiet Hindu temple ceremony afterwards.

If you’ve been looking for information or resources on weddings that are Hindu, Hindu in America, or Hindu as part of an interfaith ceremony, I hope I can be of some help.

Hindu Wedding Resource Sites

Here are a few great finds from the comments on my wedding announcement post of non-Indian Hindu weddings! I said I hadn’t ever seen a Hindu wedding where neither the bride nor the groom was non-Indian and our friends pipped up with a couple of examples…

Here are some images from an interfaith wedding where the baraat is non-Indian:
