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.
