Preparations for an Indian Wedding

The Indian bride is being cleansed with a mixture of turmeric and other herbs on the day before her wedding. Its the womenfolk who are busy doing the preparations while the men just sit around and watch. All the women join in the cleansing ceremony later on as can be seen with the four women behind doing the honors among themselves. This was taken in the yard of a friend’s house who invited us to the city of Dehraddun in northern India for the wedding of his eldest daughter.
