WEDDING
The institution of marriage is sacred in India since it is not just the union of two people but of two families.

It is as such celebrated with a lot of participation of family and friends. Various religious rituals are observed to prepare the bonding of the marrying couple for their future.An ambience is created of a wedding following customs and traditions and guests are invited to participate where a couple is selected to be the bride and groom. Two guests also need to play the part of the bride's parents. The other guests are divided into two groups, one to accompany the groom (as his family) and the other to accompany the bride (as her family).

The decor of the venue includes floral gates at the entrance, a mandap (canopied platform on which the ceremony is held) decorated in flowers and rangoli. Before the actual sequence the bride and groom are attired in bridal fineries with the bride being applied henna designs on her palms and feets. The groom is dressed in the traditional shervani (long jacket), churidar (crinkled pijama), jootis (Rajasthani shoes) and a panchrangi (five colour) or bandej (tie & dye) safa (head gear). He is also obliged to wear a sword symbolising power and the capability to protect.

The marriage commences with the groom's party proceeding to the main entrance gate of the Hotel where the groom is made to sit on a decorated horse. The "barat" (marriage procession) thereafter is led into the Hotel by a group of animators comprising a brass band, dancers, "kachi ghodi" (mock horse), fire eaters etc. Small colourful fireworks take place enroute and the groom's family are encouraged to participate in this funfare. On arrival at the venue, the bride's father/and family members receive the groom and his family with a lot of ritualistic fanfare. 

The groom touches the Thoran (an auspicious decoration) on the door made of green leaves & flowers with his sword. Thereafter the "Kalash worship" (the auspicious pitchers) is done after which the bride's family greets the groom's family with arti, garland and tikas (ceremonial welcome) and escorts them into the venue where the serving staff attired in traditional Rajasthani costumes serve a welcome drink. While sipping the drink the "milani" (family greetings) is done wherein the two family's counterpart relations warmly greet and hug each other.

Thereafter, the "Pandit" (priest) announces the commencement of the marriage ceremony and the bride and groom sit in the mandap. The family members are invited to witness the ceremony which comprises Indian customs like a ring ceremony, "pooja" (prayers), and chanting of "mantras" (religious hyms). The "varmala" (exchange of garlands by the bride and groom) follows after which the final "saptadi or pheras" (seven rounds) are done around the vedi (holy fire). All these rituals are basically vows of "being together unto death". (Tea, coffee and soft drinks can be served while the ceremony is in progress).

As soon as the ceremony is over, drinks or dinner (as desired) is served in a buffet cum sitdown style.

Post dinner the departure ceremony take place. The bride is made to sit in a 'doli/palki' (Palaquin) decorated with flowers. It is lifted by eight persons and carried out of the venue with the groom walking by its side. At the floral gate, a fire work display stating "Congratulations Mr. & Mrs........" completes this memorable evening.
