Kansari is a traditional Hindu caste in regions of West Bengal. Kansaris are among the upper classes in the caste hierarchy and their weddings are an elaborate affair with pomp and show. Kansari wedding rituals are elaborate and follow both before and after the wedding. Some of the Pre-wedding rituals are the conventional ashirbaad, holud Kota, aai budo bhaat and dodhi mongol. The right bride and groom can be easily found on Kansari Matrimony site. The marriage takes place with full pomp. For the wedding day the bride is dressed in a red saree with gold or silver embroidery. She accompanies a lot of gold jewellery with her wedding attire and decorates her hair with flowers. She also wears a head gear which is typical in every Bengali wedding. The groom on the other hand wears a Dhoti with which the shirt is optional. The wedding day rituals begin with welcoming of the groom. As he enters, rose water is sprinkled on him and he is offered sweets later in the wedding ceremony, bride and groom exchange garlands while the purohit chants his mantras. The bride is then given away by her paternal or maternal the groom and this ritual is called sampradhan. A Kansari wedding is done with the Sindoor Daan. The bride covers up her head with a sari presented to her by the groom. The groom then dips a ring into sindoor and draws a line of it on between the bride's eyebrows to the parting in her hair. The couple is then deemed married. Then a lavish wedding feast is followed where a number of varieties of fish are dished up along with a range of other non-vegetarian dishes and sweets.
