    Hi all,

    My brother is getting engaged next month. We are telugu brahmins.

    My parents are too ignorant of the exact customs and rituals in functions.

    Can any telugu brahmin please enlighten about the items that bride side has to give to groom and what all we as groom side have to give to bride

    P.s. this is arranged match. we are against dowry and have not demanded anything from girls side. Also girls side is lower in financial status than us though we really don't bother.

    Mentioning these to only give an idea that we are not giving any gold nor we are expecting them seeing their financial status.

    I wish to know what other things are mandatory as per telugu customs

    Like in my marriage my inlaws were too greedy n cruel they demanded clothes n gold ring for my husband n they had to give me a saree bt they didnt n gave silly excuses n told they will pay for it later which never happened.
    Even in entire wedding they dint give me what they promised to give. I had bitter experience at my wedding.

    Anyhoo,

    So please if anyone can tell entire process of what happens in nischitartham who gives what, it will be easy to be prepared.


    The bride side is hosting the event in just their house no extended families invited. No formal ceremony. Just writing of lagna patrika and exchanging thamboolam is what will happen in presence of a pandit whom they are hiring.

    So we have none to ask. Our side relatives are not of much help as well.

    Generally Saree, ring, sweets,fruits and flowers are given from groom’s side.

    In our families we also give bindi, bangles(glass or metal), few makeup stuffs for the bride. Not mandatory though.

    Here are some more details
