Weddings & Engagements

Weddings & Engagements

Engagement and wedding are probably two of the most important ceremonies in a person’s life. A healthy and peaceful relationship can carve a future of happiness and wellbeing, and a couple can make progress on all levels in a good marriage. Performing these ceremonies in a traditional Vedic way invokes the blessings of the Lord and infuses the relationship with spiritual energy and love. It is said that when these ceremonies are performed at a temple, it gives one extra spiritual credits and blessings!

Why not book both these ceremonies to be performed at the Sri Krishna Haveli at Bhaktivedanta Manor?

Engagement (Vaag Danam)

Engagements are also Vedic ceremonies. Traditionally known as ‘vaag-daan’ meaning, giving of the word… a commitment to soon tie the knot of marriage. This may be expressed by exchange of rings, gordhana or panchanna, depending on family custom. Vaag-daan can also mean the time when the official announcement is made to the extended families.
