A detail of the wedding invitation depicting the auspicious elephant god, ganesh.
We bought modak sweets in Jaipur outside the temple dedicated to Ganesh, the god with the head of an Elephant and the body of a human. We took then inside to have them blessed by priest and saw several couples, some about to be married and some just married. They had come to pray for the successful completion of their marriage ceremony and then later returned to give thanks and pray for the blessings of fertility.
This popular hindu god clearly has some extraordinary qualities in terms of procreation and the removal of difficult obstacles. The bright orange color symbolizes the sindoor or blood, which stained Ganesh in another victorious battle when he killed the monster Sindooran.Many Hindus consider Ganesh the wisest Gods. And for the practical minded Indians, he is certainly the most popular, thanks to the firm belief in his ability to remove all types of obstacles in everyday life.
This Ganesh has four arms and hands. The lower two hands have one palm up and the other down, representing grace and protection. A third hand carries modak sweets – the large sweet balls made of graham flour, sugar and dried fruits. The fourth one holds his broken teeth. Ganesh is widely known as the “ bachelor “ god but in Jaipur he is flanked by two small figures called his “ good ” and “ bad “. In the center of his forehead we see the third eye of wisdom. On the disk behind him, written in Sanskrit is: “ OM ” the universal symbol of the beginning and the end “ Alpha and omega”.
This function is performed in front of lord Ganesha. A pandit carries out the religious ceremonies, parents of the bride & bridegroom. Prayers are delivered to lord Ganesha for the prosperous and peaceful married life of the couple. The ceremony is followed by cocktail dinner. Entertainment: Live Indian instrumental music is performed during cocktails.
The art of mehndi plays an imp role in Indian weddings and it is a common custom for Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists in Northern India. Mehndi or henna is used for the coloring of bride’s hands and feets. The deep red colour symbolizes the love between husband and wife.
Many believe that the deeper the red of the mehndi, the deeper the love between them. Women paint patterns on their hands with mehendi in times of celebration. The liquid that is squeezed out of mehendi leaves has a reddish yellow color, which is symbolic of happiness & prosperity. The glowing yellow patterns that remain on the hand for quite some time also remind the bride of her responsibilities to spread happiness to the family of which she is shortly to be become a part. The intricate designs are painstakingly applied and include folk art figures of plants, birds, fish, and other auspicious symbols. The bride’s use of her hands is extremely limited on her wedding day due to the fragile nature of these adornments. This decoration is not limited to weddings and is also applied for various occasions and festivities, as married women use this artistic expression to convey marital bliss and to wish for good luck.
Mehendi (Heena) will be applied to the ladies who participate in the wedding and Pithi (Tarmare) ceremony for the bride and bridegroom are performed. They are then bathed in holy water. This ceremony is followed by lunch. Entertainment: A full Meena bazaar is set-up at the venue. The same includes choodiwali, mehendiwali, palmist, jootiwali, itarwala, lohar & kumhar etc.There would also be a puppet show, a magician, dholni (ladies who singh traditional songs and play the dholki during the mehendi ceremony) and folk dances (ghoomar). The cost of applying mehndi would be extra (charged per hand), and items purchased from the meena bazaar would have to be paid for directly to the vendor. Purchases made with vendor will be paid extra.

The groom’s wedding procession, an elaborate spectacle of sight and sound, is the responsibility of his family. Excitement and anticipation build as friends and relatives walk along side the groom mounted on horseback, elephant or camel. Since processions can last far into the night and lanterns powered by horse and bicycle-drawn generators illuminate the route to the bride’s house. Marching bands capture the pulse of the parade, whose mood is euphoric. During the wedding season, it is not unusual to see four or five processions n the same evening and some wedding parades even intersect! Working with so many chaotic variables, the groom usually arrives late, much to the annoyance of the bride’s family.] The barat (wedding procession) would assemble at the main gate of the Rambagh palace. The barat would then proceed towards the upper front lawns. The procession would include1 elephant, 4 camels and 2 horse drawn carriages. Jhandewalas, pankewalas & mashals or Handas would accompany the procession. Musician joyfully leads the wedding procession through the steets. Delicately balancing urns on her head, a professional dancer performs during the wedding procession. A happy drummer beats out the syncopated rhythm. Indian mocktails are served as a welcome drink for the baratis. This is followed by the Jaimala (where garlands are exchanged between the bride and groom).
From the size of the procession to the location of the wedding, all is dictated by money. A working class family may not be able to afford as big a band or some of the spectacular extras. These families will go into considerable debt to celebrate this day with a couple of hundred guests.
Traditionally, the procession ends wedding is going to take place, which has been cleaned, purified and decorated for the wedding. The barat would be received by the girl’s family at the upper front lawns. A Sasu-Aarti takes place where the bride’s mother performs the aarti-tikka ceremony for the groom.
A silver mandap & stage with a floral backdrop would be set-up, and a priest would perform all the religious wedding ceremonies (pheras etc) and Vedic chants in front of the ‘havan’ or small fire blessing the wedding. An Indian music group, shehnaiwalas would be playing softly in the background. Drinks and snacks would be served during the wedding.

There would be local folk dances (langas) being performed at the venue. The venue would be decorated with floral rangolis and candles. Entertainment – folk dances, shehnai players
