Get to Know Indian Wedding Ceremony Traditions at Moon Palace Resort

If you've been invited to your first Indian wedding at Moon Palace Resorts, you may be curious about what's going to happen. After all, Eastern cultures differ in so many ways from the west, and a wedding day is no exception.

While all weddings are held to celebrate the love and union of two people, Hindu weddings ceremony aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill I do’s. Not only are they gaining popularity in Cancun, but they're usually more colorful and filled with unique traditions. And, quite frankly, they’re often more fun.

Luxury trolley for perfect Indian wedding

From grooms atop of gold-adorned white horses to stolen shoes, read on for five of the most interesting South Asian wedding traditions you are likely to see at an Indian Wedding at Moon Palace Resorts that’ll leave you starry-eyed and possibly considering a move to Mumbai.

Blessings and Body Art

Probably the most-recognized tradition when it comes to Hindu weddings ceremony is Mehndi (or Henna) parties. Imagine the ultimate girls’ night in, but instead of manicures or DIY facials, the bride and her closest girl gang have their hands and feet adorned with intricately drawn on henna designs, which signify the blessing of the bond between the bride and her future husband.

Moon Palace Resorts offers Mehndi artists as part of its Indian Wedding packages, so prepare to have your extremities made into works of art.

You Won't Miss the Groom

Westerners are no strangers to making grand entrances at their weddings, but nothing is quite as impressive as the groom’s arrival at a Hindu wedding.

In the baraat (or groom's procession) the husband-to-be arrives to greet his future bride on an ornately-decorated white horse (yes, he literally rides in on a white horse). After his unforgettable entrance, he’s then welcomed by guests dancing around him to the beat of a drum, followed by the bride and her family who greet him with floral garlands.

At Moon Palace Resorts, a team of wedding specialists are there to assist with a tailor-made wedding that fulfills the intricate planning of the baraat, including flowers, décor, and even the horse itself!

Un Pequeño Robo Familiar

Para la mayoría de futuros maridos son comunes las pequeñas travesuras en las despedidas de soltero, pero para un novio hindú las bromas continúan hasta el día de la boda con una tradición llamada Jutti Chupai.

En la mañana del día de la boda el novio visita la casa de su prometida. Su suegra le lava los pies y le ofrece miel y leche. Mientras esto sucede su cuñada tratará de robar sus zapatos para pedir una recompensa a cambio, que generalmente incluye efectivo o baratijas de oro tradicionales llamadas kalicharis.

Espera delicias Culinarias

Es mejor que evites usar un vestido ceñido o los pantalones ajustados cuando asistas a una boda hindú, porque sí hay algo que puedes esperar: ¡hay toneladas de comida deliciosa y exótica, que te mantendrán lleno durante toda la noche!

Desde los platos tradicionales como masala de garbanzos, pollo tikka y samosas, la cena de una boda hindú es el sueño hecho realidad de cualquier amante de la comida.  Esto se vuelve especialmente cierto cuando la boda se lleva a cabo en Moon Palace Cancún, ya que nuestra cocina está muy bien posicionada en cuanto a sabor y especias, gracias a nuestro reconocido chef hindú.

Baila sin Parar al Estilo de Bollywood

Claro, es probable que te sepas varios pasos de baile que causan sensación en una fiesta normal, pero la verdad es que los bailes en una boda hindú borran cualquier idea que tengas de un buen baile, ¡son increíbles!

Después de la ceremonia hindú hay tiempo para una verdadera fiesta y esto incluye mucho baile, donde los anfitriones e invitados celebran la unión de los novios con secuencias de baile al estilo Bollywood, incluyendo el bhangra.

Entonces, hazte un favor y familiarízate con algunos pasos hindús antes de confirmar tu asistencia. Créenos, estarás feliz de haberlo hecho.

Excellent service from pubic relations in Cancun!

I had an amazing experience from Jesuri and Maximo at Moon Palace Cancun! Jesuri came to our rescue during a really tough moment where we had no one else to count on.

Bugambilia Resturant in the Sunrise Palace is exceptional for many reasons.

Johnny, Jesus Pat and juventino ....our family comes to this restaurant because of these friends we look for. They are exceptional in their work, watching in order to serve. I don’t just call them waiters but watchers!

Moon Palace Sunrise and Nizuc

We had another great stay at Moon Palace Sunrise. Service was great. We wanted to especially thank Sheila Ramirez Brott who was one of our servers by the pool. She was very friendly and very personable.
