If the world is a global village, then India is a big melting pot. It’s quite likely to fall in love with someone from a different culture and when that happens, it’s natural to want to incorporate rituals and traditions of both parties. After all, it’s what you’ve grown up with and it’s a part of you.
Here’s how you can incorporate multicultural elements in your wedding and make it a vibrant event!
1. AMALGAMATION OF DECOR
Think of a Punjabi wedding at a fort in Rajasthan or a Tamil wedding in an Italian Tuscany Farmhouse. The world is your playground and you’ll have an array of cultures to choose from. You could go for a simple theme or something fancy depending on your tastes, requirements and budget.

2. SERVE HAPPINESS ON YOUR PLATTER
A way to a man’s heart is through the stomach. One of the most integral components of a wedding is the food. Let’s be honest here, a majority of the crowd comes just for the food. You could combine and serve dishes of both the cultures, or keep a different culture menu altogether.
3. KEEP THE RITUALS RIGHT
Rituals and customs play a vital role in the completion of traditions being performed at any wedding. Incorporate these rituals with the same amount of joy, as you would do yours.

4. WEDDING ATTIRE IS TRADITIONAL, NOT MANDATORY
It’s a wedding, you have got to dress up and look gorgeous! You could exchange each other’s attires to show the acceptance of a new beginning in a new tradition. A Bengali bride can go for a Marathi wedding saree if her fiancé is Marathi. This is just one way to play with the wedding attire, family and friends can do the same to show their love, and celebrate the union of the couple.
5. GOOD COMMUNICATION IS A PREREQUISITE
Before you start deciding the themes for your multicultural matrimony, we would suggest that you sit and talk to you family and propose the ideas you’d like to implement in your wedding. Inform your family about the formalities of your partner’s heritage. You could have little scrolls and notes on tables to explain the different rituals happening in the wedding.
