Baraat also has lot of elephants who are decorated beautifully. There are camels also in the baraat which are decorated with traditional gorband. Specially decorated horses are also part of the baraat procession that has people sitting in rajasthani attires and holding small bhaala’s. These horses are trained on the music which is being played and very softly and delicately the horses dance on the beats of the music.

Earlier times, which means in the last 15-20 years, baraat band was all about a big trolley which had lot of loudspeakers on it and a male singer singing lot of tequila songs and naagin style songs . Also, baraat band normally had 12-25 instrument players who play songs of all the eras in a coordinated manner under the supervision of the band master, on which all the baraati’s used to dance in their own unique dancing styles. In bands the new trend is also of Pipe band, in which all the members of the band play bagpiper instruments.

For those who are not fully aware of the baraati concept, baraati’s are the guests from the groom’s side who are part of the baraat procession.

The most loved baraati theme here in Rajasthan is royal Rajasthani baraat which typically has all the men as baraati’s wearing rajasthani saafa’s and dancing on rajasthani melodies. The groom in the baraat procession typically sits on a mare, or an elephant , or a buggy of horses, which was in old times used by the princes.

Baraat procession with all the dance and fun reaches the wedding venue , where the parents , family and friends of the bride welcome the guests , usually with rose petal shower .The baraat ends with the tradition of “toran maarna” by the groom.

Indian wedding ceremony-tel-baan

Tel-baan is a bride-side’s pre-wedding ritual which will make you experience a royalty!

  1. Tel-baan is getting ready as a bride from the vital level
  2. Bride prepares to look beautiful as a practice,always. Read on how?

Tel-baan marks the start of bride’s preparation of her looks on the wedding day. This is pure traditional method and brings the beauty of bride in the most glowing manner. In tel-baan the turmeric paste or haldi ubtan is used and applied on the skin of the bride, from seven days prior to the marriage. The bride is made to sit on a wooden stool also called chauki and all the women of the immediate family and bride’s friends apply the haldi ubtan on bride and sing traditional songs.

Bride's pre wedding ceremony ,Tel-baan should be nicely planned
Starting the wedding preparations in the traditional way is almost going to exotic land ,of peace

Usually in weddings in north India and specially Marwari community it is asked for how many days baan has been planned, which means how many days before the wedding the bride will start applying haldi ubtan. The tel-baan planning also indicates that from how many days before the wedding day the wedding functions will start.

This is what an ideal tel-baan is. In today’s times the number of days tel-baan is planned varies, some do it just for one day before the wedding and some do it just for an hour as a custom. You can plan according to your convenience but the outcome of tel-baan for the bride is sheer beauty, so we as wedding planners recommend it very much.

This ceremony basically has all the family members of the bride, parents, brothers, sisters and all the near and dear ones of the bride.

Vidaee being most valuable moment, as these moments for the bride are literally like taking steps towards another life. Naturally, the brides want these moments to be everlasting in their memory and hence the vidaee ceremony is planned in detail. The wedding planners, based on the choice of bride make the vidaee ceremony theme based. The evergreen beautiful theme is vidaee on a doli. Doli is beautifully decorated mostly with bright colors and flowers and it is picked by four family members of the bride, specifically the men and more specifically the brothers, cousins, father. The bride in the doli is dropped till the car of the newlyweds and from where the couple head to their home.

Traditional Vidaee Doli- a small carriage ,symbolic though,in which bride is taken to her new home

With changing trends, wedding planners customize the vidaee theme as well. Marigold flowers are liked by all in the vidaee them and the symbolic , modes of transportation like auto, autorickshaw, bike, horses, buggy are used to decorate the vidaee venue. Also one point to take note of is that, today’s time vidaee is usually done based on the convenience of the couple.
