Indian Wedding Groom’s Baraat

Having an Indian wedding Groom’s Baraat is a great idea  if you or your family come from North India or Pakistan – and you should definitely stick to tradition precisely because this way you can bring homage to your rich, beautiful heritage. The “Arrival of the Baarat” and the people accompanying the groom is a great moment in an Indian wedding so if you want to make it really special, you might want to take into consideration renting a carriage. Why is this such a great idea? Read on and find out more.


  • Traditionally, the groom arrives on a white mare, but if you want to make everyone accompanying you feel genuinely included, a carriage may be a much better choice. There are a lot of carriages that can transport up to 5-6 people and they can all be decorated to really fit into your Indian wedding theme too.
  • Having a carriage instead of a mare can also be a great idea if you want to blend your family’s tradition with Western traditions as well. Carriages are very frequently associated with fairy-tale and royal weddings and having one for your Groom’s Baraat will provide you with the perfect “blend” between Indian customs and Western/American wedding ideas.
  • Of course, the carriage is extremely important but you should pay attention to the processional music too! Hire musicians and Dhol players who can really make this moment feel extremely special and who know exactly what type of music you will need them to play for your South Asian wedding Groom’s Baraat.

Have a Royal Entrance on Your Baraat Horse


It’s getting late and the groom has not arrived at his wedding yet. The bride’s parents are getting upset and the groom’s parents have no idea why he’s not answering the phone. As the bride’s father is about to lose his patience, the groom arrives on a royal horse with his friends dancing to the Punjabi tunes.

If that’s not a great way to make an entry, then I don’t know what is. Desi weddings are becoming popular around other parts of the world than South Asia. They bring a charm that is only reminiscent to the South Asian way of life. If you are getting married soon, you should seriously consider hiring a horse for your baraat.

Striking Impression

To be honest, in our wedding traditions, the groom waits for the bride while she walks down the aisle with her father or guardian. In this case, having a horse carriage becomes redundant doesn’t it? But what we can do is hire one to leave the wedding hall in style, or arrive at the reception like no one ever has. It’s a great idea when you consider you’re sharing a royal horse carriage life with your now wedded partner just like it used to be in the 1800s!

Trained and Tamed

Services that provide horses and carriages have very well trained horses. In other words, they won’t get frightened from all the dancing and music, and the crowd watching them with glee. Horses are even available to ride solo rather than carrying a carriage. They can be prepared to match the suit, sherwani, and other traditional groom dresses. Imagine your procession towards the wedding hall while your other half’s eyes are transfixed on you. That’s a moment you would want to repeat again and again. All in all, riding a horse to your wedding just doesn’t sound cool, it looks cool as well!
