Weddings are a celebration of love and commitment and the couple’s religion and culture. Indian Weddings are known to be big, loud and colorful. The same goes for a Tamilian wedding that includes lots of functions and rituals that are followed a week before and after the wedding. The spiritual symbolism of a Tamil wedding is paramount rather than all the pomp and show. Tamil weddings are filled with lots of fun and light moments as it is a big event with the presence of family members of the bride and groom.

A Tamilian wedding is also known as Kalyanam, takes place according to the day of all months of the Tamilian calendar except Aashad, Bhadrapad, and Shunya. It may be extensive if one follows the traditional way of Tamilian wedding rituals, since there are many rituals associated, without which the marriage will most definitely be deemed incomplete.

Wedding Venue

Usually, when you start planning a wedding you first start by looking for a good venue to go with the wedding theme. You need to be quick when booking the venue as they tend to get booked very fast, especially during the wedding season. A lavish venue might cost a bomb but you also have the option to take a marriage loan and cover all the expenses related to the decoration, lightings, and entertainment, etc.

Wedding Attire for Bride and Groom

The most important aspect of any wedding is the wedding ensemble of both the bride and groom. However, the bride’s attire is usually the center of attention. A Tamilian bride wedding attire includes a beautiful Kanjeevaram silk sari, wearing lots and lots of traditional gold jewellery and precious stone set jewelry known as Jadainagam in the shape of a cobra over her plaits, which is traditionally believed to be the symbol of a bride’s fertility. The ornaments worn by the bride around their waist known as Oddiyanam, are made of solid gold with intricate temple designs and is used to keep the saree borders and garlands in place. The long hair braid is accessorized with hair jewellery and flowers. The groom’s attire, on the other hand, could wear a dhoti and heavily embroidered kurta or a sherwani. The outfits of both the bride and groom might be color coordinated or decided according to the overall theme of the wedding.

The Wedding Decor

Typical Tamilian wedding decor is done with a lot of flowers. The wedding mandap or stage is covered with the floral arrangements. If you opt for a more modern decor there might also be the use of drapes, lights and other decorative props for the venue. Nowadays, people prefer to have subdued and classic styles for their wedding decor. Hence it’s best to know what kind of style you prefer for the wedding. You can take out pictures and examples of wedding styles and themes to show them to your decorator. Also, make sure that you make a booking and discuss all of the details in advance with the decorator.


Tamil weddings usually have pure vegetarian food and typically of the state. Planning for your wedding menu depends on two things. The first is your guest list and then the wedding venue. The second defines your budget for the wedding. If the budget is tight, then you can choose to cut down on certain food items. It’s not like any other wedding from other states where you have avenues for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals. So, it is important that you find a good caterer for the wedding who can provide delicious and authentic Tamilian cuisine, practices good hygiene and fits your budget.
