Like most weddings, culture and religion play significant roles in Bhutanese marriages. Weddings begin with the recitation of prayers for an everlasting relationship free from miseries. In most cases, religious heads (Lams) and monks conduct the prayers in the homes of both the bride and the groom. Later the two meet in a place of their choice; either in the bride’s or the groom’s house (or a reception hall) where vows to strengthen their ties are exchanged. White scarfs, known as Tashi Khaddar are exchanged, with the Lam offering a scarf, too.
Once this is completed, others can follow suit, beginning from family members and then guests. Gifts are given to the new couple.
This is possible and Druk Kingdom Expedition has professional experience in this. All the bride and groom need to do is come to Bhutan; we handle the rest, beginning from your wedding dresses to attending guests.
Along with the Bhutanese way, we can sieve in some characteristics of your culture, such as hosting reception.
