Here Comes the Groom! Baraat Inspiration for South Asian Weddings

It's no secret that most eyes are on the bride during any couple's wedding day, but the man of the hour needs some attention too!

Traditional South Asian weddings usually involve a custom known as the "baraat," where the groom makes his grand entrance to the wedding celebration, ready to whisk his bride away. Over the years, baraat entrances have ranged from simple and small to elaborate and opulent.
