This is the time to worship the Kuldevta . This custom is done a few days before the marriage from where the official function of marriage begins.
Halad Chadavne is the ceremony which takes a day before the wedding. The Suhasinies who prepare the items previously during Muhurt Karane apply haldi paste on the head, shoulders, hands and feet of the bride as well as the groom with mango leaves. The ceremony takes place in the groom’s place first, and then the leftover turmeric paste is sent to the bride’s place where it is applied on her.
