Jaimala is a wedding ritual in which, the bride and groom put fresh flower garlands into each other’s necks, followed by the exchange of gifts. The ceremony is not just the meeting of two souls but is a union of two families, a merge of traditions, values, and customs that make the entire wedding complete.
A varmala or jaimala is an Indian wedding garland symbolic of the popular marriage ceremony. Following regional traditions, the varmala might be made of rose flowers and/or other ceremonial stuff decorating it. The additives range from Rupee notes to other flowers to other family-based traditions.
In Indian culture, flower garlands are used as a symbol of respect and are frequently used in the temples to adorn the statues of their deities.
