    She's too tiny.
    I might end up selecting the wrong size.
    What is Ghevar?

    How do you welcome your newly wed brides?

    Depends. Which part of Rajasthan is she from.
    Anything you will Normally gift to North Indian bride will be ok. We Rajasthanis are no aliens.:lol:
    If she's a marwai and a traditional one then yeah a Ghanghra Choli with a shagun money envelope will be ok but i guess since she married a mallu anything you will gift to a normal newly wed bride will be fine.
    :hmm: Not a bad idea if she's not one of those new generation weight conscious Rajasthanis.

    Nothing that fancy @Levina a normal aarti to welcome her for the first time to your home will be alright.

    I won't have to do the aarti thingy because I'm gonna meet her at my aunt's place.

    Dubai me milta hai?
    I never saw it in ChappanBhog, will have to find it at Bikanerwala 's.
    Envelope of shagun sounds good.
    I'm trying to find a hyderabadi pearl Bangle or something in "laakh". I hope I have got the spelling right. Dont Rajasthani ppl wear a lot of ornaments made in Laakh?

    Kuch nai Mila toh, i will gift her a gold bracelet.

    Yes laakh bangles are quite popular. If you are planning to gift her ornaments then that's brilliant. People usually gift ornaments in Rajasthan when someone close in your family gets married.

    I am not Rajasthani, but from UP (Ghaziabad). So I do not know much about what specifically has to be gifted to a Rajisthani bride specifically. If I have to gift something to any north Indian bride, I would give either shagun money, Jewellery, or Sarees.

    Do not gift Ghagara-Choli for normal fitting issue that may arise due to bride being small,

    Do not gift Lac jewellery. It is very cheap, and if your cousin's bride is from Rajasthan, must be something a lot of it on usual use and throw basis.

    Ghewar is a common sweet dish in Delhi, Haryana, and Rajasthan, and brothers gift their sisters on Bhaiyaa duj in this region.


    Depending on your budget, better stick to gifting sarees or gold/diamond/pearl jewelry as you could not go wrong on this. Or you could just gift shagun money.

    Unless she is hopelessly traditional, and if she has married out of her community, she cannot be, a silk scarf is probably the safest bet. Nothing edible; you are not the privileged, only Bengalis can gift comestibles, so I should stick to light things that can be transported easily, if I were you.

    If you want to signal that you are a practical, both-feet-firmly-on-the-ground kind of person, something for the house might be the ticket. In that case, cushion covers - light, bright, culturally neutral and appropriate for those setting up house newly - would probably be appreciated.

    Again, since you belong to the lower sections of Indian society and cannot depend on Calcutta, you are prevented from gifting her table linen from the famous shop on Russell Street, but serve you right. Nobody asked you to be born a Mallu; you could always have joined the privileged in Bengal.

    Lower section???
    Which is that? :haha:


    Though the groom's parents live in Dubai, the bride n groom would themselves be living in India. Plus they are super rich.
    Initially I had plans to buy something of the sort that you had suggested but I stuck to yellow gold bracelet, a thin one with lucky charms on it. I really liked it. If she doesn't take it then prolly you will see me wearing it. Lolz


    Thanks for the suggestions. :tup:


    Happy, tumhe Sab janana zaroori hai???:dirol:
    Bubby aka @PARIKRAMA is married??? Oopsie
    Is child marriage now allowed in India? :blink:
