The five-day celebration started off at Natasha's place. They had a professional henna artist designing intricate and beautiful creations for Natasha and the ladies:
I spy with my little eye...a rabbit!!!
Yaaaay!!! Invisible mehndi!!!
Revi and Natasha changed things up with a formal engagement called the Sagai Ceremony before the Sangeet. The Sangeet is traditionally an "all ladies night"...of dancing and singing!!! Let's get started.

Natasha’s Maiyan + Choora Ceremony
One day away from the wedding! The Maiyan ceremony was hosted at the respective families' houses where their bodies were "cleansed and balanced" in preparation to be married by rubbing turmeric mixture on the exposed parts of their body.
Revi's Maiyan Ceremony
The Revi household was also preparing for the wedding with the same ceremony. Way to make the Edmonton Oilers a part of the tradition!
Oooo... so much muscle!!!
