Marriages are made in heaven. But weddings are celebrated here on the Earth. It is the blend of traditions, emotions, enthusiasm of relations, holiness and celebrations associated with marriages in India that make the Indian Weddings extremely enchanting. Adding to all this is the vibrancy and regality of the processions, the convenience of the organisation and comfort of the invited guests that make weddings in the tourist cities of Rajasthan an occasion- extraordinary for the families involved. In today's trying times when getting the best in the minimal time is a concern for all, Rajasthan has emerged as the first preferred place to organise family functions as grand as a Wedding. Rajasthan is well known not only in India but throughout the world for its unique pieces of art in jewellery, for its sprawling lawns and royal hotels, for a outstanding collection of souvenirs and above all for the dazzing range of formal attires that its boutiques & designers offer. All this and the convenience of accessibility, accommodation, transport and management of the entire affair has led to the arrival of Rajasthan as a Marriage Hub for not only Indians but also for those residing in other parts of the world.
Rajasthan offers a wide range of venue for the ceremony affordable to all classes of the society. The banquet halls, lush green lawns & Pool-side expanses of Luxury and Heritage hotels nestled in not only the Pink city-Jaipur but also in the other tourist cities of Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaiselmer have come in as exclusive place to hold theme weddings for the rich & famous ones. At the same time, the green spread of the resorts, clubs and marriage grounds located in different parts of the legendary cities of Rajasthan, too, offer a captivating site for the bridal ceremony. These lush green lawns with colourful regal shamianas & artistic floral-decorations can easily accommodate upto 2500 people and fulfill the never-ending demands of a matrimonial ceremony. The caterers further add to the delight of the guests by presenting a rich variety of delectable Indian and Rajasthani cuisines.
Well-managed traffic, easy transport and manageable distances make the to and fro movement of the families and guests, between the places of accommodation and ceremony, hassle-free. Besides, the comfortable roads of cities in Rajasthan allow for a grand procession in form of a Baraat wherein the Bridegroom's party arrives to the wedding venue accompanied with a local band playing foot-tapping tunes. The Bridegroom is truly a king in this procession riding high a top either a caparisoned elephant decorated with florid designs or an elegant horse matching up to the lively beats with its sprightliness. The day abandon and merry dancing of the friends and relatives in the procession, which is the soul of Royal Weddings in Rajasthan, compel the outsiders to come here and organise the marriages of their wards to make the occasion a memorable one. Away from the hustle-bustle of metros, cities of Rajasthan offer the comfort & convenience of a leisurely wedding combined with the facilities and class of a large city.
Markets in Rajasthan are a shopper's delight for the remarkable range they offer in clothes and ornaments at a accontable price for the Bride and other members of a marriage party. Rajasthani jewellery stands out not only for its matchless array of designs but also for its tested and reputed quality. Johari Bazaar of Jaipur is famed for its rich treasure of bewitching jewellery, beautiful gems, semi-precious stones, Kundan and enamel work on gold, which are readily available to be bought and showcased by the ladies in the wedding. Besides, there is a timeless appeal to Rajasthan's colourful bazaars selling a rich ensemble of ethnic formal wears tastefully embroidered with the traditional zardozi, gota-patti, mukesh work, sequins and bead-work. Equally popular is the leather footwear, especially the embroidered jutis that are a rage among the young and old alike. The Bride's search for her Wedding trousseau and accessories ends here in the land of Royals.
The array of facilities that exist in Rajasthan has encouraged the tour operators and event managers to offer their clients a complete package of Royal Weddings. The responsibility of all arrangements ranging from Venue-Hotel bookings and invitations to organizing reception, ceremonies, sightseeing and shopping trips, is thoroughly taken care of by the seasoned specialists making it possible for the involved families to be a part of all the fun and enjoyment without a trace of worry on their foreheads.
No wonder that such a rare blend of convenience, comfort, grandeur, ambience and accessibility posit Rajasthan as the country's favourite hub for Dream Weddings.
