I feel that if the mantras are uttered in any local language instead of Sanskrit then it would be easier to understand the significance of the mantras. which will help to understand the deeper understanding of the marriage ceremony

It is true that it would be better if would have understood the mantras of wedding while we uttered.. But i feel that the Sankrit mantras have their own aura.. with the very pronunciation of the mantras we get transported to the other world .. the world of divine.. What i feel that the if the priest atleast convey the meaning of the Sanskrit mantras then the true significance of the mantras could be felt

what i feel .. if i do not understand what i am uttering then what is the use of saying mantras... To me wedding is a holy knot and understanding the meaning of each mantra is important .. as each of the mantras unveil deeper significance. Mantras should be in local language.

Must say that Roop madam has a valid argument there but nevertheless, I would agree with Darshil saar that the Sanskrit mantras have their own aura. Mantras said in Sanskirit with the correct pronunciation is definately mesmerising.
