Indian weddings are a big affair, replete with food, dancing and inevitably, a touch of drama. Well, it appears that Westerosi weddings are just desi weddings in disguise. In the latest episode of House of the Dragon, we see the wedding celebrations of Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) and Laenor Velaryon (John MacMillan). New episodes are simulcast along with the US every Monday at 6:30 AM on Disney+ Hotstar. The fifth episode dropped this week and it showcases a magnificent marriage celebration. The festivities are, of course, fit for a king and contain, to our surprise, a number of elements that can be found at the desi counterparts. Here are 5 ways in which weddings in the world of House of the Dragon are like Indian weddings!
Weddings are an occasion to dust off your grandest attire and stun everyone else with your beauty. This is especially true for the Indian bride who is often the most elaborately dressed of all the attendees. Rhaenyra Targaryen certainly pulled this one off, with an intricate and over-the-top hairdo that trumped every other outfit at her celebration.
