WHO Is It For?

For wedding ceremony attendees who are lost in the traditions, rituals and terminology of a proper Hindu wedding. This wedding took place in midwest United States, where few attendees would understand the ins and outs for this kind of wedding.

Should I put this on my wedding site (a FAQ)?

IF you are creating or already own a personal wedding website, consider putting a FAQ like this on your site, to describe the parts of the ceremony that some attendees (or all) might not understand. You can create one specifically for you, with your own personal touches.
