tradition embraces modern On the third day, the main ceremony, cocktail hour and reception take place. This ceremony took place under a mandap, which is similar to a Jewish chuppah. Traditionally, this day will begin early with a baraat, which is like the groom's procession. The groom will arrive to the ceremony on a decorated white horse (or white car). Along with family of the groom, guests will dance around him to the beat of a dhol, a form of an Indian drum. Afterwards, at the ceremony, the bride and her family greet the groom and the couple exchanges floral garlands to wear around their necks symbolizing their acceptance of each other. At this ceremony the bride's parents give her away. Matching king throne chairs with gold trim were the focal point at this ceremony in front of pink and purple draping perched on an antique gold stage. Rows of guests' chairs were flanked by white candles in pillar vases and flower bunches of roses, hydrangea and orchids stock in bold hues of purple and red.
