With each culture evolving its own ways of celebrations, marriage is an event of lifetime. In Kashmir autumn is the official season of weddings. The Kashmiri Muslim marriage is no different in terms of religious rituals, however, culturally they stand out with a unique fervor and luster. The locals consider marriage as one of the most important religious duties and a social necessity. A Kashmiri wedding involves a number of customs and rituals. In the past, weddings stretched for about a week, but in today's fast moving world the ceremony has become shorter.
