Indian weddings are filled with a riptide of emotional celebrations and wedding activities. However, in the year 2020, we were all bummed out by the wedding cancellations as governments from all over the world came up with so many rules for gatherings.

Getting married during a pandemic situation is nobody’s original dream. Going from planning every small detail of the big day with perfection to marrying your love in the backyard can be the most unusual thing ever. It is no secret that we Indians love planning our wedding for all the right reasons, after all, this is the biggest day of a person’s life.

There are weddings and there are Indian weddings! Apart from the singing and dancing that takes place in the wedding activities, traditional Indian weddings are filled with a huge burst of colors, and the emotions surrounding the precious Indian cultures and customs make it a truly distinguishable affair. And one of the first steps for planning your wedding is finding an ideal wedding date that is also known as ‘Mahurat’, that can be usually described as the auspicious time to get married based on you and your partner’s horoscopes.

In the case of Hindu weddings, the families of the to-be-bride and the to-be-groom come together to find an auspicious date and time to conduct the wedding ceremony, based on Vedic astrological information. As a bride and a grown step into new beginnings, it is always considered to get married on the decided time, for navigating a seamless life ahead.

For promoting the longevity of marriage and make it more hassle-free, it was traditionally believed that every auspicious occasion should take place on a certain date and at a certain time. However, the variations in beliefs are different in different places throughout India across regions and religions. The auspicious wedding season generally commences from October and lasts up to mid-January, and mid-April to the end of May, but it is also essential to remember that if you are a firm believer in traditions, and customs, you should consult your family priest and astrologers. Also, on a wider perspective- love has no season. If you are getting married to the right person, the one you love, every season and every month of the year can be auspicious.
