just i want..who does arrange the music/dj for the groom side in our punjabi culture…
Hi. At Punjabi receptions the groom’s family usually arranges entertainment (DJ/dancers/etc). Traditionally the bride’s family provide catering.
Hope that helps
When the roka and takha ceremony take place, does the girls family give suits to the boys family and what do you give the boy apart from gifted money (Sagan)? Or are the suits given at the chuni ceremony?
Depending on the family – the girl’s family can sometimes give clothes to the boy and his immediate family (parents, siblings, grandparents) at the roka. Some families only give sagan to the boy at this time (best to ask the elders in your family).
At the chunni its common for the boy and his immediate family to be given clothes.
Hope that helps.
What specific clothes would you give to the boy at the chunni event?
There are no specifics. It’s best to ask the groom what he would like. Generally, people give a suit, shirt, tie and even socks and shoes (because Punjabis prefer to give in odd numbers). But he may prefer jeans and a top instead.
I want to thank you so much for your website. I have been finding it very useful for planning my upcoming wedding and really getting at the meaning of all the traditions.
While going through the articles I came across your generous offer to help with folk songs (koris and suhaag). Would it be possible to get a copy of that?
Thank you so much for your time and for such an awesome source for stressed out brides like me!!!
Hi, I am from Chandigarh, India. Thanks for putting efforts to keep the Punjabi tradition alive for marriage ceremony. My son is getting married by year end. May I request you to kindly mail Ghori songs by mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Best wishes.
We are guests at this ceremony. Should we dress in traditional clothes and should we bring gifts?
I hope I’m not too late in responding.
You don’t have to dress in traditional attire. It’s certainly not expected but if you choose to it will certainly be appreciated. If you attend the religious ceremony at the temple then be aware you need to cover your head and dress respectfully. You will also have to remove your shoes and sit on the floor so bear this in mind when selecting an outfit.
A gift is given in all cultures I suppose. In all honesty, Asians prefer money.
Hope this helps.
Hiya, it’s been very useful reading your website. We will be doing a nanki shak and we are on groom’s side of the family. I just need to know about who we need to take gifts for and what gifts need to be taken for nanki shak. Thank you.
