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.

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.
