Importance of Yellow Colored Rice Grains on Hindu Wedding Cards

It is a practice to stick yellow colored rice grains on the wedding cards by many Hindu communities. This is because yellow color is considered highly auspicious – yellow stands for prosperity and love and is also associated with learning.

The practice of giving uncooked rice grains mixed with yellow is more popular in rural areas in North India and western parts of India.

The yellow colored rice is often kept inside the card or stuck on the cards. Another key element that is a must in a Hindu wedding card is Sri Ganesha.

Yellow color in Hinduism is also associated with Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi.

Lakshmi is Sri (auspiciousness) and they are together known as Lakshminarayana. The divine couple are associated with society and family life. Thus it is symbol of peace, prosperity, happiness, good health and fertility.
