Baraat Lavazama  

In Indian weddings baraat processions are a must. The baraat’s are also getting bigger and more fun with the wedding planners, planning the weddings.

A typical baraat band is an entourage of 50-70 persons playing different musical instruments on various traditional and Bollywood songs. There are 4-12 horses which make a royal buggi and behind the horses on the buggy the groom sits. Behind the groom there is a darbaan who hold an umbrella for the groom. 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.

Aerial fireworks are also done which make the baraat grand. The alternative or the new idea of baraat entry is on vintage car. With the entire baraat on the vintage car, baraat looks very royal. With the music all the baraati’s dance on different songs and reach the wedding destination. On the wedding destination, all the baraati’s are welcomed by the bride side family.

Baraat Lavazama is fun, as it also indicates the happiness and excitement at groom side’s to make bride the part of their family.We as wedding planners recommend that baraat lavazama should be  planned in a big way.

Baraat-Band

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.

Indian Wedding Ceremony-Tel-Baan

Tel-baan is a bride-side’s pre-wedding ritual. 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.

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.
