Joining hands

.
Joining hands:

The priest joins the couples right hands together with a white garment while praying for their marriage.

The tied hands are a symbol of “oneness” and they remain joined for the remainder of the service.

Kum & Kuma:

Best man and maid of honor remain very important people in the couple’s lives.
Often times they become the Godparents of the couple’s children. These families stay connected from generation to generation.

Coin toss / Candy toss:

After the ceremony, guests exit church and wait for the couple to come out. When the couple crosses the church’s doorstep, the best man (Kum) tosses coins and candy in the air. This gets kids to scamper around looking to pick up as many coins and sweets as they can hold.
This ritual is believed to promise financial prosperity and a sweet life.
