Gol Gappa obsession takes over this South-Indian bride [VIDEO]
Indian weddings and celebrations are famous worldwide for their unique and extraordinary nature. Indian weddings have inspired many cultures to the extent that they have adopted multiple traditional practices. In Pakistan, the idea of having a separate Mehndi and Baraat (Rukhsati) function came from the Indian culture.
While most Indian traditions and practices seem to influence the world, some Indian wedding ceremonies never fail to amaze people worldwide. One such wedding took place recently in South India where a ‘Gol Gappa’ obsession was the feature of the wedding.
Gol Gappay is one of the most common street foods in India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. It consists of a round or ball-shaped, hollow puri (a deep-fried crisp flatbread), filled with a mixture of flavored water (known as imli pani), tamarind chutney, chili powder, chaat masala, potato mash, onion, or chickpeas.
A South-Indian bride wore a crown and garland made of gol gappas on her wedding day to profess her love for her favorite street snack. Not only was the bride wearing gol gappa jewelry, but she also had a tray set in front of her filled with the street snack. This bride sure knew how to enjoy her wedding day in her own personal way.
The video of the bride donning the gol gappa embellishments went viral on social media in no time and garnered 4.8 million views.

The video was posted by the PEARLS Beauty Lounge & Academy, the parlor that did the bride’s makeup for the auspicious occasion.
The beauty parlor captioned the video post with:
Many congratulations to my pretty bride Akshaya and my groom Abhishek. This make-up was done at 3 AM, and this video was shot at 3 PM. Looks pleasant and flawless finish without any patches on her skin. Indian marriage games are truly a traditional and essential part of the Indian wedding extravaganza.
Indeed, Indian weddings are a sight to see when it comes to unusual celebrations. We hope the bride had fun being herself on her big day without caring for time-honored traditions and cultural norms.
