Marriage or Vivaha is one of the 16 samskaras stated in the Vaidic tradition and is celebrated with a number of significant Vaidic rituals and procedures.
Vivaha fulfils the three goals: Dharma- duties towards one’s family and society. Prajana- begetting of progeny and Shraddha- to perform necessary rituals with a feeling of faith.

Vivaha marks the beginning of Gruhastha Ashram, which is the second phase of life. After Vivaha one enjoys fulfilling the responsibilities. In Vaidic tradition, Gruhastha ashram supports, nurtures and beholds the other three phases, viz., Brahmacharya, Vanaprastha and sanyasa.
A married couple takes charge of their household, extends family by begetting children, and nurtures a cohesive family.

Passionately committed to enhance your Wedding into a grand celebration in the Vaidic Style
The learned pundits (Vaidic priests) conduct the ceremonies in an authentic way. They are proficient in Vedas and other sacred scriptures, equipped to perform all sixteen samskaras as prescribed in the scriptures. The Vaidic Yagnas (fire ceremony) performed during wedding ceremony invoke the Devatas (God).
One of the most important rituals that creates a loving bond between the bride and the groom, is “Saptapadi” - Seven steps along with seven eternal oaths taken in the presence of their elders and beloved. The pandit chants and explains the seven oaths and the bridegroom accepts and that means - we have walked seven steps, become companions, and friends, and from now on we shall live virtuously together, inseparable. He takes an oath that the bride shall not be bypassed in terms of Dharma (Virtues), Artha (means of life), Kama (Desires) and Moksha (Liberation).
Vaidic wedding is based on love, absolute trust, mutual affection, the capacity to adjust and the sharing the responsibilities. At every stage of the wedding ceremony, the Mantras from the Vedas are recited and prayers are offered to insure a smooth and happy life. The duties are assigned to both bride and groom and both are also given certain liberties too. The union being sacred, wedding is irrevocable and everlasting.
After wedding ceremony the couple enters into Gruhastha Ashram. Gruhastha Ashram is the second stage of life – the householder stage – when newlyweds start their house hold. They enter into the relationship of a husband and wife by taking the vows of staying together in their pursuits of dharma, artha, kama and moksha. It is only after wedding the institution of family is nurtured and maintained.
