Commencement of Marriage

The priest commences the marriage under a canopy that is specially decorated for the ceremony.  The priest invokes blessings of God for the couple to be married.

The bride offers yogurt and honey to the groom as a token of purity and sweetness.  The bride greets the groom by placing a garland around his neck and the groom reciprocates.

Both are congratulated by guests.  The priest invokes the memory and blessings of forefathers of the bride and the groom for this auspicious occasion.
