An Indian wedding is not just a ceremony, it is an extravaganza that envelopes much more than the conventional rituals. It involves stupendous music, groundbreaking dances, a drama with a plethora of characters, and of course the bonding of two families for generations to come. A wedding in India is probably the most expensive celebration, not only in the lives of the bride and the groom but also of their parents and closed ones.

This has given way to the need of making some parts of the wedding extremely fascinating and exotic, the bride’s entrance being the most sought after of them. Let’s take a look at some of the unique bridal entry ideas for a dhamakedar entry!
