 A few years ago an Indian bride decided she wanted to have a traditional wedding ceremony…at home (indoor). That sparked several questions. Will the city allow a horse Baraat ? Will it be too early to play music in the neighborhood? Where our all guests will park the Car ? lots of questions in her mind.

The family sprang to action. And taken decision step by step.

Step 1: First contact your local municipality to find out what you can and can’t do.

Step 2: start early on obtaining any necessary permission from all authority.

Step 3: invite your neighbors and office colleague to lunch, coffee etc. and have a brief presentation to explain what will happen that day: timing, loud music, baraat etc. Bring photos, videos, serve samosas and consider inviting them to the ceremony.

This was a July 4th weekend wedding, so it turned out that many of the neighbors were going to be out-of-town. They all appreciated the family’s gesture to inform them of the event and were super supportive and excited as most had never attended an Indian wedding before. The out-of-towners volunteered their driveways for parking, one neighbor is an amateur photographer and came over early to take photos of the setup. One neighbor event setup a water station for guests as they went by in the baraat! It was so thoughtful!

Those that were in town, that weekend, joined the baraat and attended the ceremony.
