India boasts a rich tapestry of cultural traditions and rituals, with each region contributing its unique flavors to the vibrant mosaic of Indian weddings. With 29 states, each with its distinct cultural practices, weddings become a celebration of heritage and festivity passed down through generations.

At the heart of these celebrations lies the sacred duty of hospitality, where serving guests is revered as a divine act. Arusuvai Arasu, true to its name, upholds this tradition with unwavering commitment, offering customizable options and premium-quality food tailored to each family’s preferences.

In the southern part of India, weddings are imbued with unique rituals, each with its cultural significance. From the grandeur of Nadavas to the simplicity of Nair weddings, one tradition remains constant: honoring guests with traditional cuisine and seeking their blessings.
