“Bangles are traditional ornaments worn mostly by South Asian women in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. It is a common tradition to see a new bride wearing glass bangles at her wedding. Bangles also have a very traditional value in Hinduism and it is considered inauspicious to be bare armed for a married woman. Chooda is a kind of bangle that is worn by Punjabi women on her wedding day. It is a set of white and red bangles with stone work. According to tradition, a woman is not supposed to buy the bangles she will wear. Moradabad is India’s largest producer of bangles.”

The Swedish royal wedding today was awesome because:

-They walked to the altar to Enya

-One of the priests was black

-The sermon was a racing metaphor

-A Swedish-Syrian man sang a Coldplay song (specifically Fix You), where a hymn would usually have been sung

-Prince Carl Philip had huge difficulties getting the ring on his bride’s finger 

- And his laughing was glorious and contagious when in proved so difficult

-Princess Madeleine is minutes away from labour and was totally on top of her game for big bros wedding

-Young Princess Estelle behaved ridiculously well for a three-year old as one of the flower girls

-A Swedish rendition of Rihanna’s Umbrella was sung after the sermon

-Carl Philip and Sofia walked away from the altar to something jazzy that ended up as essentially a gospel moment of glory with all the guests standing up and clapping in church

-everyone was so happy and relaxed and it was nothing like the other recent royal weddings

5/5, would watch them get married again
