Are you an Indian groom who is looking for a unique baraat entry? If vintage cars have always been your thing, then lead your baraat procession in one stunning vintage vehicle.
Baraat is one of the most fun and highly anticipated part of any Indian or a Muslim wedding! This is what many non-Indian or non-Muslim guests will love the most. Baraat always happens before the ceremony when the Indian or Muslim groom arrives with his extended family and friends to marry the love of his life!
Ditch the sport car or the black and white classics and choose a colorful one to make a statement!
One of my favorite rituals during Indian weddings is the Joota Chupai ritual. It is actually really funny. The goal of the bride’s friends and family to steal the groom’s shoes, once he takes them off before entering the mandap, the traditional Hindu wedding stage. According to Hindu customs, nobody can enter the mandap with his or her shoes on. The Mandap is the sacred ceremony area. The bride side will take advantage of this, of course.
Stealing the groom’s shoes often includes a physical struggle as you see…. 🙂 The groom’s side, mostly groomsmen, has to try to defend the shoes while the bride’s side helps the girls make off with them.
The thief; bridesmaids, cousins and other female or male relatives of the bride, try to physically steal the shoes and find a secure hiding place for them.
Groomsmen, of course, try to do their best to defend the shoes. But usually they loose..
The bride’s friends are they going to demand money following the marriage ceremony when the groom needs his shoes to leave the venue. The rule is that the groom can’t leave the ceremony and take her wife with him without his shoes.
Anyway, back to the ceremony:
