How is Betrothal done?
The Groom together with a friend or a matchmaker will deliver the betrothal gifts to the bride’s home. Now a days match makers are all about money, a simple bed setting with a few items can simply cost you up to $200, we strongly DO NOT recommend them unless as requested by elders, otherwise you should be fine by just following our step by step guide. Places who pushes a matchmaker's service to you won't be too honest either!
