The Goan Community lives in the Indian state of Goa and speaks dialect of Konkani. Konkani spoken by the Catholics is different from that spoken by Hindus, as it has a lot of Portuguese influence in its vocabulary. Though Goan are a chiefly a Hindu population; there are Roman Catholics and few Muslims. Catholic Goan matrimony has glimpses of many Indian customs and traditions along with other influences. Ros takes place two days before the wedding where the bride and groom are blessed with a mixture of coconut oil and juice. The Goan Hindu community follows rituals similar to the Maharashtra wedding like the Sakharpuda, Mangalsutra bandhan, Saptapadi, Gharbharoiuni and many more. The Goan Brides generally wear gowns or the Navari Sari while the grooms are attired in either western-style suits or the Indian Dhoti kurta. Contemporary Goan Catholics bride wears a western virgin-white wedding gown. Accompanying the bride are the bridesmaid, maid of honor, best man usually the father of the bride, groomsmen, ring bearer boys, and flower girls. An integral part of a Goan Catholic wedding reception is the ballroom dance. Some of the other traditions followed are Soirik, Amontron or invitation, and Mudi (engagement) ceremony. For a Goan Hindu wedding Indian traditions are followed which include beautifying the bride with the Saddo a red dress or sari. The bride wears this Sari on the first day after the wedding. Saddo is also a ceremony of cutting and sewing the dress for the wedding. Bangles are worn by the bride in a ceremony called Chuddo. The bride is formally given away by the father or the guardian in a ritual called Opsun divnchem.
