Rajasthan as the name itself is more than sufficient reflects the meaning also once the celebrity writer Col. James Todd, once wrote

"Rajasthan exhibits the sole example in the history of mankind of a people withstanding every outrage barbarity can inflict or human nature sustain, and bent to the earth, yet rising buoyant from the pressure and making calamity a whetstone to courage"

Rajasthan represents the ultimate confluence of history, chivalry, romance, rugged natural beauty and colour. As Rajasthan is the land of the Rajputs where tales of chivalry and valour abound. Today, long years after the last bugle was sounded, and after the warring kingdoms of erstwhile Rajputana, sheathed their swords, the desert appears romantic, its arts, the expression of a brave yet sensitive race, its architecture the embodiment of strength and grace. It is as if, in celebration of life itself. It is a land of majestic palaces and forts rising out of the dunes. Rajasthan's thriving folk culture expresses itself in an abundance of pageantry and color, with exuberant festivals, dance and music in celebration of life.

  Best Season:-  
 


The best time for a royal wedding in India is from end August to mid April, when it is at its coolest. However, as this is also the peak tourist season for India, we recommend you plan and book well in advance to avoid accommodation and travel logistics problems later on.

 
  Wedding Celebrations:-  
 

An Indian wedding involves three days of celebration starting with

Mehndi:-

Few days before the wedding daily, both the bride and the groom are applied with Haldi or Upbtan is made of special herbs and turmeric powder over their bodies. The paste has the special purpose of making the skin radiant and fairer. On the day of the MEHNDI party, the Mehndi or Henna a natural dye is applied on the hands and feet of the bride in beautiful intricate patters of designs. The bride invites her friends, relatives and guests for the Mehndi party where henna is also applied on their palms & feet.

The designs are very beautiful and may have many themes like floral patterns, leaves, motifs etc. But the most exclusive of the designs are reserved for the bride. Henna is also applied on the arms and back of the bride like tattoo. After drying the henna leaves a maroonish brown colour which looks extremely beautiful. In India it is believed that the darker the colour of the Mehndi on the palms of the bride the more she will be loved by the groom. So Mehndi is not only a decorative item but is associated with the feeling of love among the future couple. It is this belief which makes Mehndi special for any bride. The day is completed with music and formal dinner served for the guests.

Ladies Sangeet night:-

The Mehndi party is followed by the night of Sangeet. Sangeet means music. This night is a musical night when relatives, friends and guest gather with the bride and the groom to sing, dance and dine together. Conducted by live orchestra, folk, traditional, and even trendy music is played which prepares the mood for the evening. Guests are first served a welcome drink and then invited on the dance floor to dance with the couple. The occasion becomes exciting as small fun filled games are played between the teams of the bride and the groom. At the end a formal dinner is served for all.
