Expertise: Punjabi Destination Weddings
A day before Punjabi Destination Weddings, we have a ‘run through’ rehearsal meeting with the couple, their parents, significant members of the family, and the wedding resort planner to go through the entire timeline sequence for the wedding day.
The wedding couple is ‘walked’ through the entire Sikh wedding protocol, including Matha Tek, Kalgi removal, Ardas, Pulla Ceremony, walking the 4 Lavaan, and provided with assistance with prolonged sitting for the Indian Destination Wedding.
Details of the Baraat, Milnee and bridal and groom processionals, along with start and finish times are confirmed. Some resorts can be massive in area, up to a mile long, and coordinating early morning logistics is extremely important to have a smooth wedding.
Please check out our FAQ’s Sikh Destination Weddings page for answers to questions or concerns you may have regarding your Sikh Destination Wedding. Over the years, hundreds of couples have thanked us for the introductory rehearsal meeting. You can learn more about our story, providing Destination Sikh Wedding services, and our sincerest intention to provide the most beautiful Punjabi Destination Wedding.
Oversee Ceremony Setup
On the wedding day, in the morning before sunrise, we arrive at the ceremony area to make sure the decor company arranges the area according to the mutually agreed specs. We oversee the respectful transformation of the ceremony space into a Gurudwara-type vibe. Once the room decor setup is complete, we carefully arrange the Altar Mandap and Kirtan Stages with the respective appropriate religious materials.
Following this, we set up the sound system so we have pristine, clear, unobstructed sound during your Indian Sikh Destination Wedding.
Baraat & Milnee
Many Punjabi Sikh families choose to have traditional cultural wedding ceremonies before the Indian Sikh Wedding. This can include the groom’s sisters putting on the classic Kalgi and or the Sehra.
Even at Destination Sikh Weddings, the groom often arrives on a horse for the Milnee Ceremony with his family, relatives, and friends dancing alongside the symbolic dhol player during the Baraat.
Prior to the Milnee, we assist and delegate the tying of rumaals or head coverings. This is followed by a brief introduction, overview of the ceremony protocol, and of what to expect during the Punjabi Destination Wedding.
The Milnee Sikh Ardas is recited which is followed by the typical exchanges of garlands and hugs between both significant family members.

Interfaith & Multi-Racial Couples
We are considered a ‘mixed – fusion’ couple. Our unique combination has given us a special awareness of the social and cultural difficulties that are sometimes imposed by relatives who do not approve of your choice and love for your partner. We specialize in conducting Punjabi Destination Weddings for Punjabi couples from ‘different castes’, and for interfaith and multi-racial couples bringing the message of tolerance, equality, and Oneness. We welcome all cultures, colours, and all human traditions to celebrate their Sikh Destination Wedding with us.
