Mehfils

Mehfils are an integral part of every Rajasthani wedding. It is usually held in the evenings, they are again segregated into the 'ladies mehfil' and the 'gents mehfil'. At the ladies' mehfil, all the women gather at a central place in an enclosed courtyard or hall. In dazzling dresses, they perform the ghoomar (a special dance done in a group). The bride at the mehfil is given an important position to sit and watch the proceedings. If the ladies' mehfil is in progress at the groom's house, then only the groom is privileged to attend the all-women affair. Of course, the men have their own mehfil, where singers perform and these are strictly all male parties.


The night of the wedding

The morning before the memorable evening is filled with preparations for the royal wedding in Shiv vilas. In the early evening gentlemen gather in the Main lobby for tying safas (traditional headgear of the long tie-and-dye scarves).
