Sindoor is made up of vermilion, a red powder that is applied as a red streak along the parting of a woman’s hair. It is also known as kumkum or sindur. It is a symbol of matrimony and of female energy. In the Holy Ramayn it is said that Lord Hanuman saw Mother Sita applying sindoor and when asked about the reason, she said it was for the long life of her husband. Lord Hanuman then proceeded to covered his body with sindoor to show his love for Lord Rama.
Sindoor is first put on a woman by her husband on the day of her wedding, it is a private ritual and very special for the newlyweds. After the wedding, it becomes a daily ritual thereafter.

#WeddingWednesday : One year ago, less than a month out from the wedding, @stevemariani’s mom and my mom went to Dayton to gather last-minute inspiration for our rehearsal dinner and wedding venues. My mom suggested wreaths for the doors on the @universityofdayton Chapel, and I’m glad she did because we were able to reuse them at the reception. Swipe over to see how. 📸🌸
