Wedding Attire For Rajasthani Rajput Bride And Groom

Rajputs are considered as the warrior caste according to the social system the matches are mostly sought by the parents and the elders of the family. In the Rajput communities, the boys and girls are hitched in their early ages, particularly in their early 20s. The marriages are fixed by the mediators mainly where they are contacted for the eligible life partner for their children. In Rajasthan, the family business is the lifeline for the livelihood. The men of the family get involved in their family business and the women control the household.

In the Rajputs of Rajasthan, the Rajput matrimony is generally conducted in the months of May, June, July and in the months of October to January, where selective dates are believed to be auspicious. Generally the weddings are fixed after consulting the family priests who decide over the most suitable date according to the horoscopes of the boy and girl.

The dress of a Rajasthani bride and the groom are really wonderful. Both the boy and girl are dressed in their traditional clothes on the day of marriage. The traditional style is to wear lehenga that is printed in traditional style, which is Bandhni. The groom wears a traditional kurta paired with dhoti and shoes.

Times have changed and the brides have started wearing contemporary and designer lehengas in various designs and colours. And why the grooms should be left behind! They have also opted for the smart and casual looks and choose sherwani and choodidar to match up with the latest trends. The selection of colours remains same, which is bright and flashy, as the Rajasthin Rajputs prefer red for the bridal wear, over all other colours. However there is some room for other flashy colours like green, orange, fuchsia pink and bright yellow.
