It’s Groom Week on TNIB and today it’s all about arriving in style. Nothing in an Indian wedding is more exciting than the moment the Groom makes his first appearance. The arrival of the baraat is the ceremonial start of the wedding day and the excitement surrounding the Groom’s arrival is palpable amongst all of the wedding guests.
Typically, the Bride’s friends and family gather outside the wedding venue to welcome the Groom and his baraat. How an Indian Groom arrives varies. Some may be on a white horse, some may have the dhol blazing, your friends and family may be dancing or you may choose a more modern approach. Whatever you do, just remember to make it good. I gotta admit that My Leading Man knocked this one out of the park! He arrived in a 1930′s Rolls Royce. Not only did he look extra dashingly handsome stepping out of these vintage wheels but the car made the perfect accessory for our pre-ceremony photo shoot!
There are so many ideas on how to arrive from the simple and sleek (vintage car), ethnic traditional (white horse) to geek chic (on a segway – yes really, I have seen it!). Why not take your own twists on this tradition and really have some fun!
What is the most creative way you have seen a Groom and his baraat arrive? TNIB wants to hear from you!
