White Horse for Hindu Weddings
A Hindu wedding is a colorful and joyous event which is spread over a couple of days. It is a large gathering of family, friends and relatives. One of the important and fun ceremonies is the arrival of the groom sitting on a white decorated horse. He arrives on the day of the wedding at the wedding venue. The groom's family members, relatives and friends accompany him to the wedding venue in big procession. Groom's friends and relatives are called the barati. They are welcomed and received by the bride's family. The groom normally goes in a grand procession to the bride's place sitting on the decorated white horse.
