If you’re looking to add a touch of royalty to your wedding, then start from the beginning and arrive at the venue like a Maharaja on your very own horse. I’ve teamed up with expert horse handling company Film Horses to bring you some expert tips on why there really is no other entrance quite like it.
1. Great for photos
A horse adorned with a full Indian costume is going to look amazing in your pictures. Indian weddings are very much about colour, so if you can include this element in your entrance then that’s a bonus. You’ll be looking very much like a Bollywood hero when you show up to your wedding venue with wind-swept hair and a crisp sherwani. Your bride won’t be able to take her eyes of you as she takes a peek through the window.
2. You can see everything
One of the biggest bonuses of arriving on a horse is that you are naturally higher up than everyone else, which means you have an excellent view of what’s going on. You can spot your mother-in-law and sister-in-laws from afar and be well prepared for whatever is coming your way.
3. Avoid dancing
If you’re the type of groom that really dislikes the idea of having to dance down the pathway alongside your baraat then arriving on a horse is a great idea. You can relax and soak in the atmosphere while everyone else is dancing around you. Of course you will eventually have to get off the horse, but it will definitely decrease your dancing time significantly.
4. Traditional element
Nowadays Indian weddings are very much a fusion of some ancient Hindu traditions with more modern western ideas. If you’re incorporating more modern approaches to your wedding day then arriving on a horse is a nice little way to keep things traditional, as this is how grooms in India would typically arrive. Choose specific Indian attire for the horse to create the traditional look you’re after.
5. Quirky departure
Even though this post is very much about your entrance, just remember that if you do arrive on a horse then you can also surprise your bride with a quirky departure. Whether or not you have a carriage does not matter, because if you’re looking for some truly memorable shots, then imagine having her sit behind you as you ride off into the sunset – or for a few feet at least. Film Horses also provide some horse riding lessons for grooms so they feel 100% comfortable on the day.
