Conducting these traditions with meticulous care is considered a good omen for a happy and successful married life.
The bride is often dressed up in a richly decorated sari worn in traditional Kandyan style adorned with seven customary chains and headdress. The groom wears royal regalia similar to that which was once worn by the Kandyan Royalty of Sri Lanka. They are accompanied by a team of young men and women who attend to the wedding couple.
