Traditional Indian Weddings are our everything. Right from the timeless traditions to effortless elegance, we love every little detail about them.

The word ‘Ganesha’ is a compound that is composed of two Sanskrit words – Gana and Eesa. The word ‘Gana’ means a group or troop and the word ‘Eesa’ means chief or commander. So Ganesha is the commander-in-chief of the troops forming part of Lord Shiva’s retinue.

Why is he worshipped in weddings?
Ganesha or Ganapati is considered as the deity who removes all the obstacles and provides good luck. So Ganapati puja is performed before any Hindu wedding to bless the about-to-wed couple as they embark on their journey together as man and wife!
