A Guide to Tamil Weddings Love vs Arranged
Welcome to my guide to Tamil weddings. As a Tamilian myself, I know that weddings are an incredibly important part of our culture. They are also incredibly complex and can be overwhelming to navigate. This article will provide an overview of Tamil weddings, with a special focus on the differences between love and arranged marriages. I’ll discuss the cultural norms and expectations, the differences in ceremonies and celebrations, and the emotions that are involved in both types of marriages. Whether you’re a Tamilian preparing for a wedding, or simply curious about the culture, this article will provide the information you need.
Do You Have A Love Marriage? Or Will Arrange Marriage Happen? | Tamil
As someone who has been intimately involved in arranging Tamil wedding ceremonies for over 10 years, I feel the need to share a few insider tips with you that will help make your nuptials one to remember!
There is a growing trend in Tamil weddings where couples are choosing to elope without any formality or prior engagement. This is a beautiful and more personal way to express their love for each other, and I believe it should be respected. However, I do think that an arranged Tamil wedding can add an extra special touch to your ceremony.
When choosing an officiant or wedding planner, be sure to ask for references. A quality professional will be more than happy to offer recommendations. If you’re on a budget, try contacting local temples or religious organizations to see if they have any retired ministers or priests who are willing to officiate at a reduced rate.
And finally, don’t be afraid to be creative! There is no “correct” way to do a Tamil wedding, and you and your partner should feel free to express yourselves in any way that feels natural and authentic to you.
Wishing you all the happiness in the world during your upcoming nuptials!
Love Marriage: Advantages, Disadvantages
When it comes to choosing who to marry, people tend to go with what feels right for them. However, there are always other factors to consider, such as love and compatibility.

1) Advantages to an arranged marriage:
- You can choose a spouse who is a good match for you.
- You can choose a spouse who is from a similar cultural background.

- You may not be able to choose your spouse’s religion.

Arranged Marriage: Advantages, Disadvantages
If you have never been involved in an arranged marriage before, it may be difficult to know what to expect. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of arranged marriages.
Advantages of Arranged Marriage
1. Arranged marriages tend to be more stable than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages usually have more pre-existing relationships between the spouses, which can help to create a stronger foundation for a successful marriage.
- Arranged marriages are often more affordable than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages can be more culturally and ethnically diverse than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages can be less competitive than love marriages.

- Arranged marriages can be more difficult to break than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages can be less egalitarian than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages can be less intimate than love marriages.
- Arranged marriages can be less spontaneous than love marriages.
Comparing Love vs Arranged
I get asked a lot about the difference between arranged and love weddings. The answer is pretty simple, really. Arranged marriages are planned in advance by families or matchmakers, while love weddings are (usually) spontaneous events.
The main difference is that with an arranged marriage, the couple doesn’t get to choose each other. With a love wedding, the couple gets to choose each other, and often spend a lot more time together before the wedding itself.
Another big difference is that with an arranged marriage, the couple will often have very different backgrounds. This can be a bit of a challenge, but it can also be a really fun and exciting challenge to see how you can adapt to each other. With a love marriage, the couple is usually more similar in terms of their backgrounds, and this can make for a more seamless transition into their married life.
The main thing to remember is that love weddings are (usually) more special because they’re more personal. Arranged marriages can be really special as well, and there’s nothing wrong with going with the flow and letting fate decide your fate. But if you’re looking for something truly unique and special, a love wedding is the way to go!
Role of Family
The role of family in Tamil weddings is often controversial. Some people feel that family is the best way to conduct a wedding, while others believe that a more professional and less family- orientated approach is better.
In general, most Tamil weddings are arranged. This is partly because families are often able to provide better facilities and more support than the average couple could on their own. However, there are a growing number of couples who are choosing to get married without the help of their families.
There are a few reasons why couples might choose to get married without the help of their families. One reason is that families can be quite conservative and resistant to change. Another reason is that some couples might want to break away from the traditional Tamil wedding model and create their own unique ceremony.
Regardless of why couples choose to get married without the help of their families, it is important to remember that they are still part of the wedding process. Family members are often important witnesses to a wedding, and they can provide a lot of support to the couple during the ceremony and afterwards.
Impact of Society
There are many different perceptions of weddings in India – some are arranged by parents and friends, some are ‘love marriages’, and some are simply voluntary social gatherings.
In a ‘love marriage’, the couple decides to get married themselves, without any outside influence. Often, this is because the couple is fairly compatible and they want to make their own decisions.
In an arranged marriage, the couple is chosen by their families or friends. Often, the couple does not have much choice in the matter, and their parents or friends will choose a marriage partner for them.
In a social gathering, the couple is simply meeting new people and having a good time. This type of wedding is often less formal, and the couple can choose the dress and hairstyle they want.
Finally, a voluntary social gathering is not necessarily a wedding. A voluntary social gathering can be a party, a dinner, or simply a get-together.
Conclusion: Love vs Arranged
When it comes to weddings, there are always two camps: the lovers and the arranged. The lovers believe that love should be the only deciding factor in who they marry, while the arranged believe that it’s important to have someone with the right connections. In some cases, the two can be complementary – an arranged marriage can add excitement and unpredictability to a love relationship, while a love marriage can provide security and stability.
There are pros and cons to both approaches. On the one hand, arranged marriages can be more stable, as the couple know each other better than any other person. They may also be more compatible, as they’ve had time to get to know each other and develop a relationship. On the other hand, love can be more passionate and AUTHENTIC. It’s also more likely to last, as the couple is drawn to each other for reasons other than simply sharing the same interests.
Ultimately, it’s up to the couple to decide which approach is best for them. If you’re considering getting married, be sure to ask yourself which type of relationship you want: a stable, traditional arranged marriage or a passionate, authentic love relationship.
