DECORATION NECESSARY AND TYPICAL
The priest (it can be 1 , 2 or 3) provide a traditional ceremony, depending on what part of India they are, they will do one ceremony or another.
They bring the powders, herbs, bowls,make the sacred fire, bring everything a traditional ceremony needs. They sing mantras during the ceremony and read also.
A Mandapa with four columns should be built, if possible, with enough space for the parents of the parties and the contracting parties to sit on it.
The spouses have to sit facing east, on their right and left the family members may be seated.
The materials for the construction of the mandaba can be very varied, according to the possibilities. Sometimes a platform is usually made a little higher so that all those attending the ceremony can see well from their positions.
In the center of the mandapa is where the priests place the Agni Kunda on the bricks to perform the sacred ceremony of Fire. There must be enough space between the chairs and the Agnikunda so that the priests can sit around the Agni Kunda and in due time the bride and groom.
Between the Agnikunda and the first row of attendants to the ceremony there should be enough space for the Sapta padi ceremony, in which the bride and groom walk and step on six piles of rice.
The guests should be arranged in such a way that there is a sufficient corridor in the middle for the bride and groom’s access to the Agnikunda. The arrival of them is separately and is usually in procession accompanied by drums and dancing of their family and friends.
