I’ve seen grooms come in on foot (that’s what Mr. Jasmine did), on horse, via sports car, and even helicopter!!!

Boo to Laguna Beach!!!  I would love an elephant but I’m not sure if we can find one in Chicago or if the city will even allow it.  My brother was on a horse for his baraat and our backup (if the elephant or horse don’t work out) is a ferrari convertable (because it’s got a horse logo…get it!).  I’ve also seen carriages and Vespas.

I have no idea, but just wanted to say, as someone who’s never heard of a baraat, that was a hilarious post to read! I was just WTF?!?

I’m still a sucker for a traditional white horse (what we’re gonna do), I don’t know if it would be different enough, but a friend of mine did this with an umbrella (I grayed out faces, it’s not a problem with your machine) which looked really nice:

We are going to go with a horse but if we could find an elephant then I would definitely choose that!!

rasgoola, I don’t have tips on a vendor, but I’ve seen photos in NYT of weddings with an elephant.  Maybe you can look into who did that b/c it’s not so far to Boston.  The only wedding I know of with an elephant was in AZ and the elephant was flown in from the San Diego Zoo!  (I did not attend, but I imagine it was quite an affair.)

I’d go with a white horse personally, I love that look. I’d love an elephant but there’s NO way I could ever get my Fiance to agree. But a girl can dream….

@ Fizicsgirl: How did they "fly in" the elephant? He wouldn’t fit into the cabin space. LOL. this is the funniest post on wedding bee. My Fiance is refusing both horse and elephant. We’re going to go with a limo or a sports car.
