In Bangladesh, a wedding is celebrated more gorgeously than any other occasions. No matter whether the families are rich or poor or middle class marriage ceremony is a matter of joy to everyone. From a kid to an old, everyone can enjoy wedding ceremony. Wedding is not matter of only one program. It is a bunch of many programs, small and large. As a wedding ceremony is not a matter of only one program, it takes much time to cover up all the programs. It is not necessary to celebrate all the programs. There is not any binding in Bangladesh to celebrate a certain amount of programs during wedding. Bride’s and groom’s families celebrate the programs as much as they want and can.

The most enjoyable occasion of them is “marriage”. Marriage is socially or ritually recognized a legal contract between man and woman that establishes rights and obligations between them. A marriage is a process of any rituals. Fockler says “Many rites within one ritual”. One of the rituals is called ‘gaye holud’. This is a pre-Wedding ceremony.
