WedAbout takes a note of fun wedding games in Indian Weddings:-
Hindu weddings boast of wedding ritual. Here the ring decides who will dominate the marriage. Wedding rings will be hidden inside a basket of uncooked rice. The fun is that the bride must identify the groom’s ring by touch before fitting it into her finger. The groom follows the same. Whoever is successful in locating the right ring first is believed to take charge ahead.

Mehendi represents the bond of matrimony. The bride adorns intricate Mehendi. This has the name of the groom hidden. The most intimate ice-breaking wedding game is that the groom has to find his initials in the beautiful mehendi of the bride. This wedding game creates a sense of belonging to the couple.

In Bengali marriages, the couple does not get to see each other. The first time they catch glimpse of each other is on the wedding evening. The bride covers her face with a betel leaf. She is carried around the groom. After the last round, the bride removes the betel leaf. She unveils her face to look at her husband. The fun is that they both have to look at each other thrice without flickering eyelids. This is very coy yet charming moment.
