Asian Flowers, Asian Male Wedding Veil ‘Sehra’ & Flower Garlands for Asian Wedding

Posted By on December 15, 2015

As much as I aim to be most well informed & connected florist when it comes to floristry trends, artistic design and floral definitions , jargon, the facts.  When we come to flowers in religion I find the protocol much more complicated. They have just got to be right!  For instance asian wedding flowers.

sehra

A Sehra is a head dress worn by the groom during Bangladeshi, Indian and Pakistani weddings. Flowerworks recently designed & created a wedding veil of flowers that practically covered the face of the groom.

The actual religious marriage ceremony differs in each religion, for instance among many Sikhs, the weddings are conducted in Punjabi, for many Hindus the ceremony is conducted in ancient sanskrit and for traditional ceremonies for Muslims in Arabic, with different religions however there are similarities in ritual, flowers, song, dance, food, and dress.

The Punjabi wedding has many rituals and ceremonies that have evolved since traditional times, including traditional Punjabi dances.  At Flowers Uxbridge we have supplied wedding garlands and beautiful wedding flowers for the asian community since 1999.  The north and west London community since 1975.  The wedding ceremony flowers in the images on this posting have scented blooms, including pipped and threaded  hyacinth heads and fragrant ‘paper whites’ narcissi flowers.

Veiled groom

In North India the groom’s face is kept hidden before the wedding behind a floral veil, called sehra, which is tied to the turban. The veil is believed to protect him from the evil eye. At some point before the ceremony, someone from the bride’s family lifts the veil briefly to ensure that the groom is the chosen one and not an impostor!

indian wedding garland

An Indian bride applies henna or mehndi to her hands and feet before the wedding. The belief is that the deeper the final colour the more she will be loved by her husband or some say, her mother‐in‐law. She is also forbidden from doing any housework as long as the colour of the bridal mehndi remains on her hands, making the longevity of the henna all the more desirable! – See more at: http://www.confetti.co.uk/wedding-ceremonies/10-interesting-facts-you-didnt-know-about-indian-weddings/#sthash.Pj9n9n6x.dpuf
