The Ceremony

The Baraat procession welcomes the groom to the Nikah ceremony, a loud and colour parade to declare the beginning of the wedding.

Families meet and the bride and groom are separated and repeat ‘Gubool’ three times to accept the contract of marriage. The Mahr is an obligatory gift from the groom to his bride, this is more often than not a lump sum of money or a gold item, the bride will receive this after the ceremony.

The Shaadi will take place on the same day, a celebration thrown by the bride’s family and signifies the couple are married.

After the Nikah

Post-wedding rituals will then take place, these involves like the Rukhsati,  Chauthi and Joota Chupaai.
