An Indian bride adjusts her headwear during a mass marriage ceremony for some 35 poverty-stricken couples from the India-Pakistan border area at a ceremony on the outskirts of Amritsar on December 29, 2009. Marriage is a costly affair in India prompting some parents to have their children married at mass marriages, allowing them to save money on organization costs.
