Rajputs traditionally have their own distinct individual rituals of marriage. Marriage is considered one of the most important events in a couples lives.
It is a relationship which is created for seven generations between the two families of the bride and the groom. It comprises a ceremony for the Tilak (engagement), the Ban (starting of the wedding ceremony), the Mel (the community feast), the Nikasi (the departure of the Bridegroom party for the wedding), the Sehla, and the Dhukav (reception of the wedding party at the bride's place by her parents). Solemnisation of the wedding is referred to as Sat Fere.
A sherwani is normally worn by the bridegroom along with his own family form of a turban. He keeps a sword in his hand during the ceremony.
A bride wears a Lahanga, Odhani, Kurti, etc. The ornaments worn by a Rajput Bride are the Rakhdi on her forehead, the Sheesphul as headgear, the AAd as a thick neck hanging, the Baju above her elbow (on arms), and the Pajeb as anklets.
