I am Caucasian and my fiance is Indian so we are having a fusion wedding - Catholic and Hindu. This is my first Indian wedding so I've had to learn a lot about the Indian traditions. Most of our guests are not familiar with Indian weddings...only about 20-30% of our guests are Indian, so really only my fiance's family will know what traditionally is done. We are planning on having a baraat, and I recently learned that the bride isn't "supposed" to be part of the baraat at all..I'm supposed to wait inside by myself, peering out a window, watching everyone else have a blast. I'm wondering if it is totally unheard of for the bride to join her family to be there when the groom arrives. That way I would at least get to see everything and feel a part of it. Is this totally disrespectful or unheard of? I've been trying to find examples of brides joining the baraat (or the end of it) but am not finding much. Thank you for your help!
