Colourfully dressed people, sparkling gold jewellery, music and great food, yes, we are talking about a classic Indian wedding. Can you imagine an Indian marriage without gold? The answer is an obvious no. Over centuries, gold has become the most integral and inevitable part of Indian marriages.
Gold jewellery takes center stage at most weddings, be it for the bride, the groom or the other family members.
Gold has a serious significance in Indian marriages. People of all ages, whether they are from the girl’s side or the boy’s side wear attractive gold jewellery. The star of the wedding – the bride has gold jewellery from her head (maangtikka) to her feet (paayal). Gold is an auspicious precious metal, which many people believe, brings wealth and prosperity along with the blessings of goddess Lakshmi. Moreover, if the bride – Gruha Lakshmi, brings gold into her new home, parents-in-law consider it a highly lucky omen.
In some weddings, the presence of gold represents the presence of Gods at the ceremony.

Given that gold prices always tend to grow, slow, steady, and planned accumulation of gold for your children’s marriage will stand you in good stead.
