We would like to suggest interested couple to choose Pashupatinath Temple, Balaju Water Garden, Gujeshwari temple, Dakshinkali temple or Bhadrakali temple in Kathmandu and Bindhabasini temple in Pokhara to perform Hindu marriage ceremonies. Buddhist marriage ceremonies have distinct feature to differentiate from others. In Nepal, relatives from both bride and bridegroom's side gather together to participate the ceremony.
The Buddhist marriage ceremonies are organized at monastery. Both bridge and groom wore traditional wedding costumes. Lama (like Pandit in Hinduism) does all rituals to sanction the wedding. Environment of Monastery is made pleasant by lighting butter lamps. Traditional music is played during the wedding day. The new generations have started playing modern songs and music to celebrate wedding.
