Wedding day ceremonies consist of the Baraat, the Varmala and the Phere , and the Vidaai. The bride is formally sent to the groom’s household in the Vidaai ceremony. During Kanyadaan, the bride’s parents give their daughter away in marriage and the groom makes three promises. The next ceremony is the Bariksha, this is when the bride’s parents formally acknowledge and approve of the groom. Next is the Tilak, where the bride’s parent visit the groom’s family and formalize the relationship. This large feast is the first of many family feasts. The Tilak is followed by the daytime observance of Byaha Haath, preparing the bride and groom for their wedding.
