Fun Wedding Party Blockade at South Asian Weddings

Many South Asian weddings are full of fun and games. From stealing the groom’s shoes to wedding party photos to milni. Another tradition observed in some weddings is blocking the couple from leaving after the vidai. Usually the bride’s female friends blockade them and at same-sex weddings, the friends gather together and do not allow passage until they’re showered with money and/or gifts.

At weddings where the groom’s shoes are still incognito, this is often the point at which the harborer reveals possession and negotiates for money and/or gifts.

It’s all in good fun and spirits and the happy couple zooms away while the friends hit the hotel bar!
