Challenges in marrying an Iyengar girl


I am an NB soon to marry a TamBrahm girl. I am not sure if the marriage is going to be in the Iyengar traditional way or will it be a simple registered marriage. I am a little concerned too if it's the former. I have spoken about this with her as well, but she is also not very sure about the rituals in this case.

I am here to get an idea of how prepared I should be for the wedding. Is there anything I need to be well aware of and be prepared for?

Thanks in advance.
It is better to do registered marriage and perform a reception in a grand manner.

I am saying this by observing personally with two marriages one is like you, NB boy married an Iyer girl and another with Iyer boy married a girl.

First let me say the latter where the girl is happy with the costumes and other things as most of the rituals are with boy performing but the embarassment occurs with girls parents as they have not practiced the costumes and rituals of brahmin style

For the former it is really tough to do the rituals of Brahmin style by boys family and it is really an embarrassment for all.

If you feel some rituals to be followed it is better to follow Arya samaj or other Hindu marriage style which may be comfortable on both sides
