What Else to Expect?
There is no traditional style of venue. City, beach, or mountains are all acceptable for a traditional ceremony. While location is not prescribed, there are many aspects of the ceremony that should be taken into consideration when choosing a venue, such as the desire for private spaces and multiple ceremonies and meals.
For Western audiences, the traditional ceremonies may be a bit surprising, simply because of the how unique they are compared to what is considered "traditional" in the United States. First, the procession of the groom, known as the Baraat, has the groom arriving on a white horse with the guests dancing around him to the beat of a drum. The groom's procession is met by the bride and her family, at which point the couple exchanges garlands, which are symbolic representations of each their acceptance of one-another.
Another notable difference is the color. Red is the principal color for the bride's Sarior wedding dress, on most occasions as it is symbolic of commitment, spirituality, and fertility in Indian culture. White is considered a funeral color and is steered away from in all instances. Additionally, the bride is usually adorned with gold accents including jewelry and stitching along their wedding clothes.
Every ceremony is different with one exception, no matter how long each portion of the event is, the days will fly by. With all of the activities, dancing, eating, and celebrating, it is important to have a photographer and videographer who can keep up and knows what will happen next.
