groom is taken inside to the ladies section where he is
received by the bride's mother with the traditional aarti,

bridegroom is accompanied at this stage by only one
married make relative and maybe his younger brother or a
younger male cousin.
wedding ceremony is similar to a Hindu wedding. However,
the bride must at all times through the wedding ceremony
keep her face covered by a long veil.
the wedding is in progress, the baraat is entertained outside by
the bride's male family members. Therefore, it is mostly the
women members of the bride's family who attend the wedding
ceremony.Ceremonies and other rituals, including the bidai, are similar
to other Hindu marriages. However, of particular interest are
certain unique rituals. For example, at the time of the bidai, a
coconut is placed under the wheel of the car before the ride lifts
her veil for the husband after the wedding is an important ceremony.
At this stage, the groom usually gives a piece of Jewellery
to his bride.
Once the baraat returns with the newly weds, the Grihapravesh takes
place. The bride still wears the veil while the puja and other ceremonies
take place. A few games are played between the bride and the
are also common to other Hindu weddings.
The day following the Grihapravesh, the pagelagni takes place. This
is a ceremony where the bride, still in veil, is formally introduced
to all the family members of the groom who bless her and give her
gifts. The veil is then finally removed.
