Every Indian wedding has that moment, as the family and friends await the arrival of the groom, the entry of the baraat, the commencement of the celebrations. And while traditionally, the groom would arrive on a white horse, why not mix things up a little, and make a grand entry, one everyone is going to remember and talk about for years to come? Here are some of our top picks for unique entries ishtyles for the groom!
Vroom-in in style!
Why come in on a horse when you can ride in on a Harley or Enfield instead? Better yet, get your baraat to make an entry in style with a biker group, the engines playing a melody of their own! After all, what could possibly be hotter than a groom on a bike?
Quirky Desi Entry
Go desi and have a few laughs by making an entry on a tractor or a scooter, or even better still, ride in in a decked up auto-rickshaw! Not only will this create a light moment and break the ice between families, it will also be a moment to always remember!
Go Classy with Vintage
Nothing speaks classy like making an entry in a vintage luxury car! If you’re ready to splurge a little, these cars can be rented for the night of your wedding. Imagine getting out of a chauffeur driven luxury car, and after the wedding, taking your bride home in that!
Go Traditional, really traditional!
Why only a white horse? Travel like the Maharajas did! Enter your wedding venue on a royal elephant, complete with decoration and seating like that of a king. The sheer size of the gesture is sure to make an impact on the guests awaiting your entry!
Be cute, and be tech-savvy! Ride in on a Segaway hoverboard and charm your family to-be with a few laughs along the way! It’s convenient and completely different. What’s more, if your bride is willing (and has prior experience), lead her to the waiting car after the wedding on a Segaway as well. Now that would a vidai to remember!
A wedding flash mob!
Imagine getting out of your car, getting in line with your family and greeting the guests waiting to start the rituals of the groom’s entry. And suddenly music plays out from the background, and one by one your baarat starts breaking into a choreographed dance. And you join in as well! This entry is not only delightful, but a beautiful way to introduce your family and announce your entry. Imagine everyone’s delight as they witness this unique entry style!
