Wedding Games

Kangna Ceremony

Wedding GamesThe Kangna is a sacred thread tied to the bride and groom’s wrists to ward off evil spirits. The thread is usually opened at the end of the pheras. The bride is allowed to open the groom’s Kangna with both her hands while the groom can use only one hand to open the bride’s Kangna. If you want to win this battle of who is able to open the Kangna, suggest the person tying the Kangna to your wrist to make it very tight!!!





Search for the Ring

Wedding GamesImmediately after the Kangna is opened, a big thaal is placed in front of the bride and the groom and is filled with water, flowers, untied kangnas and milk. A ring is put into the thaal by a female relative and the couple is asked to find the ring. Legend says that the person who would find the ring would be the more dominating one out of the two.
