All these rituals are organised at the groom’s house.
This is the most important post wedding ritual. In this ritual the bride comes out from the wedding venue and proceeds for the groom’s house. Before uniting with the groom the bride offers rice to her mother which signifies that all the debts are nullified at her parent’s house. Next she leaves for the groom house. This is the end of wedding rituals.
The bride receives a grand welcome at the groom’s house. Before entering in the house she dips her feet into a solution called aalta. After dipping she starts walking towards the groom house. She also leaves the marks of her handprints on the wall. After that she is offered the first meal of the bride in the groom’s house.
