Wedding exhibitions in Jaipur

Subjective matter of wedding planning can’t be tailored into a wedding exhibition. Read on why?

  1. Wedding Exhibitions originated 10 years back in Jaipur
  2. Today, they are places to do shopping
  3. Complete wedding planning is not happening at these wedding exhibitions 

Wedding season or not, wedding exhibitions can be seen all over the place. Does it make sense to attend one of these wedding exhibitions in your city? Let us see the origin and why of these wedding exhibitions. We, as Splash events, The Wedding Planners have witnessed the origin and sudden upsurge of these exhibitions as we have been around 20 years in the wedding industry in Jaipur and please we are not trying to boast about it, just a matter of fact.

Wedding exhibition concept was started by wedding industry pioneer or more of a trailblazer, Late, Mr. Sanjay Godha, almost 12 years back, by the name of Lagan Mandap. He was a true dedicated wedding professional who crafted new ideas- to make this beautiful land a destination wedding land .The idea of Lagan mandap which I saw was very succinct and beautiful, promote wedding as an industry in Rajasthan.  

Time went by and this idea of wedding exhibition has been taken up by many. We can read every now and then the wedding exhibitions being put up, every wedding exhibition claims to be bigger, more splendid and more magnificent than the other one. In today’s times, if you go through the elements of these entire wedding exhibitions, you will find all of them have been organized by a relatively new wedding planner or a new hotel that has come up. In these wedding exhibitions, one can go and do all wedding shopping under one roof-wedding clothes, wedding jewellery, wedding footwear, make up ,hair stylist, wedding caterers, wedding photographers. These wedding exhibitions are more about wedding shopping, with limited vendors, for each product being sold . Also the wedding planner wants to get some publicity and same is the case with the hotel organizing wedding exhibition.

 The term wedding exhibition is covered in a very miniscule manner in these wedding exhibitions. Wedding involves ideation of the events and this ideation is the most subjective thing as it involves the recreation of the wedding dreams in the most feasible and beautiful manner. This is more of one to one exchange of ideas between the wedding host and the wedding planner. The expert view of wedding planner can help the wedding couple recreate the wedding plan. Wedding exhibitions, in current times are more of wedding shopping items display place where you can shop but again with limited wedding shopping vendors’ option. You as a wedding family will have more options of shopping, when you enter the markets of Jaipur, which is a true shopper’s paradise.

Wedding exhibitions are more of shopping places
Wedding exhibition in Jaipur city,place of destination weddings!

Our view as wedding planner for these wedding exhibitions is not against, they are a good medium to create curiosity about wedding planning in the families having wedding .These exhibitions should include broad and structured outline for wedding planning, that will make them complete wedding exhibitions. If these wedding exhibitions are more about wedding shopping then the specific purpose of wedding shopping should be communicated to the visitors . It will help in achieving the target of wedding shopping purchases and make both the wedding exhibition organizer and the visitors happy, to be part of these wedding exhibitions.

Baraat Band

Baraat has to be special.Learn how to do that!

  1. In an Indian wedding Baraat is procession which goes to take bride for the wedding ceremonies
  2.  Bigger and happier the baraat ,the happiest gets the wedding.Read on how to make baraat extra special?

Indian weddings are incomplete without baraat processions which are all fun and entertainment with baraat bands.

We will start with the basics of baraat band -for those who are not fully aware of what makes baraat band such a perfect part of the wedding celebrations.

 

Baraat is a procession of all the friends and family from the groom side, with all musical instruments, songs and dance and the groom of course. This baraat processions reaches the wedding venue in all fun and celebration mode. With changing times, baraat bands have also become theme based. The look of the baraat –grand, royal or simple –is decided by the choice and taste of the couple getting married and also on the budget aspect.

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. Toran maarna is a ceremony in which the groom touches the Lord Ganesha idol with his sword and then goes and sits on the stage with the bride.

Indian wedding ceremony-Pheras

Pheras  ceremoniously & spiritually bring  the couple together forever!

  1. Pheras is wedding ceremony that is necessarily performed to solemnize the wedding
  2. Read on how to make pheras,extra special

Indian Hindu Wedding has a very important role of Pheras . In a Hindu wedding rituals,bride and groom get the status of husband and wife only when the phera ceremony have taken place.

The pheras are performed on an auspicious time decided by the pandit. This time is usually evening time or midnight time. The entire ceremony takes around 3-4 hours. There is a priest or a pandit who gets all this ceremony performed and during the ceremony the pandit chants mantra in Sanskrit.

Pheras are performed in front of the small havankund where fire is lit .The bride’s end of the dupatta or her saree’s small edge is tied with groom’s edge of an auspicious robe after which they move around the fire lit havankund . This completes the phera ceremonies. The bride and groom’s moving around the havankund, is probably the reason this ceremony has been named as phera ceremony. Usually total pheras are seven in number, which also signify in hindu religion togetherness for seven births.  Fire or agni as mentioned in hindi is considered the most pure element of mother nature, hence it is used in wedding ceremonies.

Indian wedding ceremony pheras has to be planned aesthetically
Phearas, an age old Indian tradition of couples tying the knot unites them forever

In phera ceremony – roli, moli, chandan, kumkum, rice, fruits, supari, sindoor is used. The groom uses silver coin for maang bharna ceremony.Bride and groom swear that as a couple they will take their life ahead towards happiness,always.
