Last week on our blog we talked about having a royal Baraat wedding so we thought it fitting to keep that topic going.  What are the Hindu wedding traditions and what is a Baraat?  According to tradition, an Indian Hindu wedding is not only the merging of a man and woman but two families.

Weddings in the Hindu tradition is a binding contract made for life so they spare no detail when it comes to planning such an event.  The wedding consists of several parties thrown over the period of two or three days.  On the first night, a priest will often perform the ganesh pooja, a ceremony that usually happens at home with only the couple, the bridal party, and close relatives in attendance.

One of our favorite parts of an Indian Hindu wedding is the Baraat.  The Baraat is a large gathering of family and friends and starts with the arrival of the soon to be groom on a decorative horse.  He arrives the wedding venue arrayed in bright colors along with a large group of people called the “Baraatis” dancing behind him.  We love being a part of traditional Indian Hindu weddings and our horses adorned in the traditional garb look amazing.

We would love to be a part of your Indian Hindu wedding and have been privileged to provide the horses in many.  If you’re looking for horses in Northern California  for your wedding then we’re the place to call.
