The wedding is conducted according to Arya Marriage Validation Act XIX of 1937 and is solemnized according to Vedic rites. In these weddings, the pooja is not performed to any specific deity because the Samaj doesn't believe in idol worship. Fire and the other elements are the only witnesses to the ceremony.Simplicity is the hallmark of Arya Samaj weddings. The rituals performed are the ones prescribed by the Vedas and the mantras are translated into the Tamil / Hindi / English so that the couple know what the meaning of their marriage vows.
